Starbucks makes a mean cup of coffee, but their iced lattes are out of this world! There are so many to choose from you can get lost in the menu, and there are many secret menu options too.

To make things easier, we've compiled a list of the best iced latte Starbucks choices so you can see exactly what's available and get your iced coffee fix.

1. Iced Caffè Latte

This simple but ageless Starbucks iced coffee drink is one of the most popular orders around the world.

It's an espresso drink, so it has a reasonably strong hit of coffee, but the milk gives it a silky texture that makes it really drinkable.

The Iced Caffe Latte is made by combining iced shaken espresso with milk. It's typically made with whole milk, but you can swap for nonfat milk or a dairy free option like almond milk if you prefer.

There are 130 calories, 11 grams of sugar, and 4.5 grams of fat in a standard serving.

2. Iced Starbucks Blonde Vanilla Latte

The Starbucks Iced Blonde Vanilla Latte is a sweeter version of a traditional iced latte. The blonde espresso shot is smoother than the standard blend and gives the iced espresso drink a bit more of a delicate flavor.

The vanilla syrup also adds to the sweetness, making it an option for sweet coffee drinkers.

It combines blonde espresso, vanilla syrup, and 2% milk. Then, like all Starbucks iced espresso beverages, it's shaken over ice.

In a standard serving, there are 125 calories, 11 grams of sugar, and 4.5 grams of fat, so it's a reasonably light Starbucks drink.

This is one of the more interesting Starbucks iced coffee drinks. It has a sweet and spicy flavor that’s perfect for coffee lovers who enjoy cinnamon, and the intense flavor comes through in every sip from the cinnamon dolce syrup.

It's made by mixing brewed espresso shots with milk and cinnamon dolce syrup and then shaking it all over ice. It's then topped with whipped cream and cinnamon powder.

This is one of those iced espresso drinks that doesn't taste like coffee, but there's over 150mg to give you your caffeine fix.

There are also 300 calories, 35 grams of sugar, and 13 grams of fat in a serving, so even though it's delicious, it definitely isn't a diet drink.

It’s made with brewed espresso shots, pumpkin spice flavoring, and milk, which is then poured over ice and topped with whipped cream and a flavored syrup.

This is one of the best Starbucks iced coffee drinks for anyone with a sweet tooth.

The combination of caramel syrup and caramel pieces makes it deliciously moreish, and it's the sweet drink you won't be able to put down.

An Iced Caramel Brulee Latte is made with iced shaken espresso shots, a caramel sauce, milk, whipped cream, and topped with a caramel drizzle and caramel pieces.

The Iced Honey Oat Milk Latte is one of the best iced coffees on the menu.

The sweetness from the honey blends well with the nut milk, and it has a subtle sweetness that isn't overpowering. It also works really well with almond milk as an iced honey almond milk latte.

It's made by combining espresso, oat milk, honey, and the Starbucks signature honey topping.

There are 210 calories, 25 grams of sugar, and 6 grams of fat in a serving, and it's a great latte for those who don't have dairy.

7. Iced Sugar Cookie Almond Milk Latte

You know this drink will be sweet and delicious with a name like Iced Sugar Cookie Almond Milk Latte. It's less of an iced coffee and more of a dessert, and certainly one to order if you have a massive sweet tooth.

It’s made by combining Starbucks blonde espresso, almond milk, sugar cookie syrup, and ice. It’s then topped with red and green sprinkles for a bit of added sugar.

Despite the name, this drink isn't actually too unhealthy, and there are only 150 calories, 25 grams of sugar, and 3.5 grams of fat in a serving.

It's perfect if you're looking for something a bit lighter and less overwhelming than a Starbucks Frappuccino.

8. Iced Chestnut Praline Latte

The Iced Chestnut Praline Latte is one of the most refreshing iced coffee drinks on the menu.

It has a sweet and nutty flavor from the caramelized chestnuts, which combines with a slight hint of spice to give you a deliciously light autumnal iced coffee.

It’s made by mixing espresso with milk, chestnut praline syrup, and ice. It’s then topped with whipped cream and praline pieces to give it a bit of texture.

9. Starbucks Reserve Iced Latte

The Starbucks Reserve Iced Latte isn't on the regular menu, and you'll have to specially request the Reserve espresso blend.

It's made using their rarest coffee beans and is smoother than their regular blend. It also has a slightly higher caffeine hit, so it's a good alternative for those who like cold brew coffee or enjoy a Starbucks nitro cold brew.

The Reserve Iced Latte is made by mixing hot coffee (made with their Reserve blend) with ice and silky smooth milk. The result is an easy-to-drink cold latte with a more interesting flavor than your regular iced blonde vanilla latte.

This latte has about 150 calories, 25 grams of sugar, 5.5 grams of fat in a serving, and 130mg of caffeine. Just remember to ask your barista for the Reserve espresso when they're making it.

10. Iced Matcha Tea Latte

This latte isn't exactly a decaf iced coffee, but it has less caffeine than a traditional iced coffee.

It has a striking green look which can put some people off, but the combination of flavors (with a little caffeine kick) make it a popular alternative coffee drink.

It’s made by combining matcha green tea mixed, pineapple and ginger flavorings, and coconut milk. It’s then poured over ice to serve.

There are 120 calories, 11 grams of sugar, and 4 grams of fat in a serving, and it also has about 80mg of caffeine in a serving (about the same as a strawberry acai refresher).

Your average coffee lover may not choose this over an iced Americano, but it's a great alternative to consider when ordering iced coffee on a hot day.

11. Cookie Butter Iced Latte

The Cookie Butter Iced Latte is a secret menu option perfect for sweet iced coffee lovers.

Just be warned that this is a very sweet drink, with even more sugar than an iced caramel macchiato and iced white chocolate mocha combined.

You'll need to ask your barista for an oat milk chai latte with 3 pumps of brown sugar syrup and 2 pumps of chai. It works well topped with whipped cream or vanilla sweet cream cold foam if you want a bit of extra sweetness.

There are about 500 calories and 70 grams of sugar in a single serving, so this is definitely not for every day, but it really is the perfect Starbucks treat.

12. Iced Eggnog Latte

To us, this is the best iced coffee for Christmas because of the sweet and spicy notes. It's similar to an iced flat white but with a bit more complexity from the nutmeg, and it's one of the best iced coffees if you want to avoid a strong coffee taste.

It’s made by combining espresso, steamed eggnog, ice, and nutmeg powder. You can also ask your barista to add cold foam to make it even more luxurious.

Unfortunately, there is no alcohol in this eggnog, so don’t expect much of a buzz from it.

There are 450 calories, 42 grams of sugar, and 18 grams of fat in a single serving, so it isn't an everyday coffee, but it's definitely our favorite Starbucks drink during the festive season.

13. Starbucks Reserve Iced Hazelnut Bianco Latte

If you're looking for something different, this is one to try. Unlike other cold coffee beverages, it's made with hazelnut and praline infused milk.

This gives the drink a more complex flavor enhanced by the nuttiness. It also contains Starbucks Reserve espresso, made from special Starbucks beans.

All of this gives it a pleasantly smooth but intense taste which you won't find in many other Starbucks espresso drinks.

It’s made by combining Starbucks praline and hazelnut infused milk and Reserve espresso, which is then poured over ice. There are 280 calories, 26 grams of sugar, and 14 grams of fat in a serving.

If you love coffee, this will get your taste buds going more than other drinks, and it's something you definitely need to try this summer.

14. Starbucks Reserve Iced Bourbon Barrel Aged Latte

Starbucks has taken inspiration from whiskey specialists and created their own unique cold brew iced coffee. [1]

It's made with bourbon barrel-aged Sulawesi Kalosi cold brew coffee infused with all the rich and smokey flavors. The cold brew coffee is then mixed with 2% milk, vanilla syrup, and a vanilla sweet cream cold topping.

The result is a unique sweet cream cold brew that has a strong, bold flavor. There are about 120 calories and a whopping 205mg of caffeine from the cold brew, so you'll get a big caffeine fix along with the smokey flavor.

The Starbucks Iced Dirty Chai Latte is exactly the same as a regular chai latte but with an added espresso shot.

This gives it some intense coffee flavors and gives you a big caffeine boost.

The drink is made with cinnamon, clove, and spice infused black tea, which is mixed with milk and ice.

A shot of espresso is then added at the end. If you want to mix it up, you can also add a classic syrup, and cinnamon syrup works well.

How To Order Any Iced Lattes at Starbucks?

Ordering an iced latte at Starbucks is as simple as finding your nearest Starbucks and speaking to the barista.

However, there are some tips to help you get the drink you really want:

Think About The Flavors You Like

Some Starbucks drinks (like the Iced Caramel Macchiato) are really sweet, but others (like brewed coffee) are much more bitter.

Most iced lattes are sweet, but you can find some unique flavors which still have the bold taste of coffee.

Just remember that there are a lot of Starbucks lattes to try, and you don't have to settle for an iced caramel macchiato-style drink. Check the menu fully and speak to your barista to see all the latte options.

Remember Your Extras

Starbucks is so popular because they let you customize your drink. This means you can take a classic iced latte and add the ingredients you love the most.

The most common additions include syrups, vanilla sweet cream cold foam, caramel drizzle, and salted caramel cream. If you're a chocolate lover, you can also add white chocolate mocha sauce or chocolate malt powder.

Just remember to pick additions that match your drink, and if you're not sure, you can speak to your barista.

Get Your Caffeine Fix

If you usually order nitro cold brews, you might think lattes will be too weak, but the truth is that most Starbucks iced lattes have a lot of caffeine.

Plus, you can add in extra shots of espresso to increase the energy boost if you really want to.

If you want a big caffeine boost, try a salted caramel iced latte with two extra espresso shots because it tastes exactly like a salted caramel cream cold brew.

Skip The Queues

Our last tip is to use the Starbucks App to skip the queues. You can pre-order your favorite drink through the App and breeze in to collect it without having to wait.

This is particularly useful on a hot summer's day when you really don't want to be waiting in a hot coffee shop. [2]


Starbucks Iced Latte Questions

What is the difference between a regular latte and an iced latte?

Starbucks iced lattes and regular lattes are pretty much exactly the same. They both have an espresso shot and use milk to give a velvety texture.

The main difference is that a regular latte has steamed milk which makes it even smoother and creates a foam on top. In comparison, an iced latte isn’t as smooth, which is why many people choose to add a classic syrup to make it easier to drink.

Is an iced latte stronger than iced black coffee?

An iced latte is made with a double espresso shot in the base, so there's usually more caffeine than in an iced black coffee. This means that if you have one drink of each, you'll get a bigger energy boost from the latte.

However, iced black coffee often tastes stronger because of the coffee flavor. There are a lot of iced latte flavors to choose from, and the latte flavors at Starbucks help to disguise the taste. This means they might taste weaker, but they’re actually stronger than the black coffee.

Are iced lattes healthy?

Starbucks lattes are generally unhealthier than regular coffee, depending on your order. If you choose a sugary drink with added syrup or white chocolate sauce, then it can be over 400 calories in a single serving. [3]

However, your average Starbucks latte contains 150-300 calories. To put that in perspective, an iced caramel macchiato has about 215 calories, and an iced white chocolate mocha has 240 calories, so an iced latte is roughly the same as other iced drinks.

What sizes do the iced lattes come in?

Starbucks iced lattes come in Tall (12oz.), Grande (160z.), or Venti (24oz.). If you’re choosing a secret menu


Conclusion

Cold brew coffee isn't the only cold coffee available in Starbucks, and there really is a latte for everyone. There are sweet, spicy, and even smoky lattes to choose from, so you don't have to settle for a plain iced caffè Americano.

Hopefully, this guide has introduced some new options and excited you for your next Starbucks visit.
