Have you ever wanted to eat a sugar cookie and have a sip of coffee at the exact same time? Well, this indulgent Starbucks Copycat Iced Sugar Cookie Latte is the answer! We are talking creamy plant-based oat milk with cold brew coffee mixed with flavorsome extracts that create the sugar cookie taste we all know and love. For a little extra touch (and crunch) you can even add sprinkles and crushed sugar cookies on top!! We love this homemade Dairy-free version of this festive brew!
So I am a little obsessed with homemade lattes these days, and by 'a little', I mean ALOT. Seriously. I literally make lattes on a daily basis with all my favorite creamy plant-based milks.
This Salted Caramel Cashew Latte or a Brown Butter Maple Cookie Latte are some of my personal favorites, and this Sugar Cookie Latte is definitely a great sweet dessert-like sip to spruce (and sweeten) things up.
It is so much fun to get creative at home with drinks to suit your personal flavor preferences, and the best part is you can bundle up and get cozy (or sit in front of the AC, depending on the season..) and not have to make a trip to Starbucks!
So if you are sitting there thinking this drink sounds delicious, but what is it? Let me break it down. The sugar cookie latte is a Starbucks seasonal drink they made back in 2021. And look -we know some festive drinks can be hit or miss, but I'm telling you this one is a HIT, and I am here for it.

If you have any other flavors that you like to add to your cookies, feel free to throw them in! For example, if you have a large jar of vanilla sugar, be sure to use that (Yummy vanilla goodness is always a win). If you like cloves or allspice in your cookies, add a bit of that too!

Chewy, sweet, and indulgent, these Soft Oversized Crinkled Sprinkle Sugar Cookies are oh so good if I don't say so myself.. they’ll leave you indulging in two or three before you even realize it (speaking from experience here..Ooops).

Absolutely! Everything in this Starbucks Copycat Iced Sugar Cookie Latte is completely dairy-free, and if you'd like to switch things up with the type of plant-based milk that you use-----that's totally fine! The world of plant-based milk is constantly expanding, it's hard to keep up! From the classics like cashew milk, soy milk, and almond milk, we now have delicious options like oat milk and even potato and quinoa milk.
Yes! This yummy sweet, dairy-free sugar cookie latte is just as tasty hot or ice cold! You can definitely switch things up by serving this latte hot or cold whenever you choose to.
To serve hot, simply warm your plant-based milk with all the latte ingredients together in a small saucepan until heated through. If you have a milk frother, all the better, but it's not totally necessary! Pour in a mug and top with festive sprinkles, coconut whipped cream, or both because why not?
First off, it tastes just like sugar cookies. And that is reason enough... The second benefit is that it is incredibly simple to make because it's essentially plant-based milk, ice, and coffee with a few little added goodies for a unique sugar cookie flavor.
And let's not forget the best part: you don't need to spend a crazy amount of cash on ONE drink or wait in any lines to enjoy this at-home version of the Starbucks festive sugar cookie latte classic!
