Starbucks makes a mean cup of coffee, but their iced lattes are out of this world!

There are so many to choose from and there are many secret menu options - it's easy to get lost in the (caramel) sauce.

To make things easier, I'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

There's nothing better than starting my mornings with an Iced Caffe Latte. This simple but ageless Starbucks iced coffee drink is one of the most popular orders around the world.

The Iced Caffe Latte is made by combining iced shaken espresso with milk. 

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 presentation is simple, but classics are classic for a reason!

It's typically made with whole milk, but you can swap for nonfat milk or a dairy free Starbucks drink option like almond milk - I prefer having mine with oat milk.

The Iced Latte is the base for so many iconic drinks, but sometimes simple really is best.

Tips From A Barista
  • Not into syrups but want a sweeter latte? Head to the condiments bar and pick up honey, Splenda, or Stevia to sweeten things up
  • Want a lighter take on a classic? Trying asking for Blonde Espresso shots instead

2. Iced Starbucks Blonde Vanilla Latte

  • 28 grams of sugar

I can't get enough of this Blonde Vanilla bombshell!

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 and folks who love vanilla Starbucks drinks.

This is more of an everyday drink for me and reminds me of having coffee and cake with friends after work.

Tips From A Barista
  • Ask for extra blonde ristretto shots and whole milk for a stronger creamier latte experience

3. Iced Cinnamon Dolce Latte

Nutritional Information (Grande Serving)
  • 300 calories
  • 35 grams of sugar
  • 13 grams of fat

Controversial opinion - the Cinnamon Dolce Latte is one of the best lattes on the Starbucks menu.

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.

It has a sweet and spicy flavor that reminds me of baking with my mom, and the intense flavor comes through in every sip from the cinnamon dolce syrup.

This is one of those iced espresso drinks that doesn't taste like coffee (more like spiced coffee cake), but there's over 150mg to give you your caffeine fix.[1]

4. Iced Pumpkin Spice Latte

Nutritional Information (Grande Serving)
  • 370 calories
  • 45 grams of sugar
  • 16 grams of fat

The icon herself! The PSL has been heralding the fall season for 20 years (so long already??)

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.

The combination of spices and sugar makes this stand out compared to other drinks, and there are always some dedicated Starbucks lovers eagerly waiting for its release every fall.

This Starbucks drink is a fan favorite and great for anyone who doesn’t particularly like the taste of espresso because it’s totally hidden by the sugar and spice. 

This was one of my early orders when I was trying to get into coffee as a teenager - now look at me!

Tips From A Barista
  • Want to up the pumpkin ante? Try adding two pumps of pumpkin sauce and two pumps of white mocha syrup and pumpkin cold foam! This transforms it into a secret menu item called the Cinderella Latte

5. Iced Caramel Brulée Latte

Starbucks Iced Caramel Brulee Latte
Nutritional Information (Grande Serving)
  • 400 calories
  • 44 grams of sugar
  • 16 grams of fat

As a caramel lover, I can't stop ordering the Iced Caramel Brulee, one of the best caramel drinks from Starbucks.

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 combination of caramel syrup and caramel pieces makes it deliciously moreish, and it's the sweet drink I can't put down.

Everything from its cute presentation to its sweet smell is irresistible!

6. Iced Honey Oat Milk Latte

Starbucks Iced Honey Oatmilk Latte

The Iced Honey Oat Milk Latte is one of the best iced coffees on the menu. I've been absolutely obsessed with it since it came out and it's a regular order for me.

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

The sweetness from the honey blends well with the nut milk, and it has a subtle sweetness that isn't overpowering. I love the way the oat milk gradually blends with the coffee and honey syrup - so tempting!

If I want a break from oat milk, this also works really well with almond milk as an iced honey almond milk latte.
Tips From A Barista
  • Oat milk fans rejoice! You can ask for oat milk and honey blend syrup cold foam - just remember it may not foam as well as standard dairy cold foam due to the lower fat content

7. Iced Sugar Cookie Almond Milk Latte

Starbucks Iced Sugar Cookie Almond Milk Latte
Nutritional Information (Grande Serving)
  • 150 calories
  • 25 grams of sugar
  • 3.5 grams of fat

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.

I only recently tried this while walking around a Christmas market with friends and loved how cute the sprinkles looked on the whipped cream. As a dessert drink fan, I was quickly hooked!

It's perfect if I'm looking for something a bit lighter than a Starbucks Frappuccino.

8. Iced Chestnut Praline Latte

Starbucks Iced Chestnut Praline Latte
Nutritional Information (Grande Serving)
  • 320 calories
  • 34 grams of sugar
  • 16 grams of fat

The Iced Chestnut Praline Latte is one of the my favorite drinks to order in fall and winter!

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.

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 coffee beverage.

Just sipping on one reminds me of long walks over crunchy autumn leaves or under Christmas market lights.

9. Starbucks Reserve Iced Latte

Starbucks Reserve Iced Lavender Latte
Nutritional Information (Grande Serving)
  • 210 calories
  • 16 grams of sugar
  • 11 grams of fat

Talk about a fancy version of the classic 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 result is an easy-to-drink cold latte with a more interesting flavor than your regular iced blonde vanilla latte.

I always feel bougie as hell when I order this Reserve Latte!

10. Iced Matcha Tea Latte

Nutritional Information (Grande Serving)
  • 200 calories
  • 28 grams of sugar
  • 5 grams of fat

Sometimes I get a little sick of drinking coffee and feel the urge to return to my tea-drinking roots - enter the Iced Matcha Tea Latte!

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.

It's a great alternative to consider when ordering iced coffee on a hot day - especially combined with a chocolate cold foam.

11. Cookie Butter Iced Latte

Starbucks Iced Cookie Butter Latte

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

I love ordering this when Christmas is right around the corner to get in the mood for baking cookies and cakes with my nieces and nephews.

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. 

If it's a little too sweet, I sometimes ask for half the amount of syrup to ease off the sugar.

It works well topped with whipped cream or vanilla sweet cream cold foam if you want a bit of extra sweetness.

How To Order
  • An oat milk chai latte with 3 pumps of brown sugar syrup
  • 2 pumps of chai
  • Top it all off with whipped cream. 

12. Iced Eggnog Latte

Starbucks Iced Eggnog Latte
Nutritional Information (Grande Serving)
  • 290 calories
  • 33 grams of sugar
  • 11 grams of fat

To me, this is the best coffee drink 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 a buzz from it.

It isn't an everyday coffee, but it's definitely one of my favorite Starbucks drinks during the festive season.

Tips From A Barista
  • Not into a sugar overload? Try asking for fewer pumps of syrup in your latte

13. Starbucks Reserve Iced Hazelnut Bianco Latte

Starbucks Reserve Iced Hazelnut Bianco Latte
Nutritional Information (Grande Serving)
  • 280 calories
  • 26 grams of sugar
  • 13 grams of fat

When I want something that's both bougie and a little different, I get the Starbucks Reserve Iced Hazelnut Bianco Latte.

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.

If you love coffee, this will get your taste buds going more than other drinks, and it's an iced coffee drink must try this summer.

14. Starbucks Reserve Iced Bourbon Barrel Aged Latte

Starbucks Iced Bourbon Barrel Aged Latte

Coffee and bourbon? Not as wild a combo as I initially thought!

Starbucks has taken inspiration from whiskey specialists and created their own unique cold brew iced coffee.[2]

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.

I often take my partner to get this on special dates or to celebrate big milestones, so it holds a special place in my heart.

15. Iced Dirty Chai Latte

Starbucks Iced Dirty Chai Latte
Nutritional Information (Grande Serving)
  • 240 calories
  • 42 grams of sugar
  • 4 grams of fat

I love coffee. I love tea. Sometimes I just wanna drink em both at the same time - that's where the Iced Dirty Chai Latte comes in.

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. When I want to mix it up, I also add a classic or cinnamon syrup.


How To Order Any Iced Latte 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 and bold.

For example, I love combining coffee with vanilla, chocolate, pumpkin spice, and caramel, so lattes like the Iced Cinnamon Dolce and Iced Gingerbread Latte are some common orders for me.

When I want to adjust the coffee taste, I switch to Blonde espresso beans or ask for additional shots with my latte.

Speak to your barista to help find the perfect latte flavor combo for you.

Remember Your Extras

Starbucks is so popular because they let you customize your drink. 

The most common additions include syrups, sauces, vanilla sweet cream cold foam, caramel drizzle, and salted caramel cream.

Get creative - you may even discover an entirely new tasty combo!

Get Your Caffeine Fix

If you usually order Starbucks 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.

Skip The Queues

My 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.[3]


Starbucks Iced Latte Questions

Are Starbucks iced lattes healthy?

Starbucks lattes are generally less healthy than regular coffee, depending on which iced latte you order. Your average Starbucks latte contains 150-300 calories.[4]

What sizes do Starbucks iced lattes come in?

Starbucks iced lattes come in three sizes - Tall (12oz.), Grande (160z.), or Venti (24oz.). 

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

The main difference is that a regular latte has steamed milk which makes it even smoother and creates a foam on top. An iced latte involves pouring steamed milk and coffee over ice before adding your flavors and customizations.

Is an iced latte stronger than iced black coffee?

An iced latte is typically stronger and more caffeinated than an iced black coffee as it is made with a double espresso shot.


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.

My personal fave is the Iced Honey Oatmilk Latte, but the seasonal ones are always so fun to try.

Get excited and try some new options on your next Starbucks visit!
