Let’s be real: Starbucks iced coffees have transcended from just being a refreshing, energy-boosting beverage.

In fact, iced coffees are so popular that they actually made up around 75 percent of all Starbucks' US sales in 2023 - incredible![1]

Wanna give iced coffee a try? I'm here to show you the best Starbucks Iced Coffees to shake up your regular order - let's get started!

These are some of the most popular cold sips, and I have a feeling at least one of them will end up being your go-to. 

Let's dive right in!

Sometimes the OG is exactly what I need - enter the iconic Iced Coffee. [1]

It's a bit sweet, has less caffeine than many other specialty iced coffees, and is more budget-friendly.

While it does have 80 calories and 20g of sugar, you can always change that up by getting less or no Classic Syrup. 

I love getting my Iced Coffee with creamy oat milk since becoming lactose-intolerant but almond milk is also a good choice.

Cold brew coffee is always a top choice, especially on days when getting out of bed is a struggle for me.[2]

As caffeine is extracted more in higher temperatures, cold brew has a bit more caffeine than regular coffee.

Starbucks' Cold Brew is handcrafted in small batches every day with their custom bean blend for an ultra-smooth flavor.

With just 5 calories and 0g of sugar and fat, cold brew is one of the best iced keto Starbucks drinks. 

Not only that, Cold Brew is a fantastic option for when I'm trying to keep calories or my sugar intake down!

Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew Standard Ingredients
  • Ice
  • Brewed Coffee
  • Vanilla Sweet Cream
  • Vanilla Syrup

Cold Brew is great on its own, but is absolutely perfect with some vanilla sweet cream. I've been obsessed ever since it first came out in 2017!

Sweet cream is honestly my go-to topping when it comes to iced coffee. It adds the perfect level of sweetness and creaminess that cuts through the rich coffee flavors. 

It combines that strong cold brew flavor, 2 pumps of Vanilla Syrup, with a rich float of house-made vanilla cream cold foam over ice. 

Even though the drink tastes deliciously sweet, it will only set you back 110 calories, with 14 grams of sugar.

Tips From A Barista
  • Get creative with your sweet cream! You can ask for things like matcha, cocoa powder, vanilla bean powder, and other flavorings like syrups to be added for an extra flavor kick

  • Vanilla Syrup

Salted caramel combined with Starbucks' sweet cream and cold brew? Sign me right up! 

The base is caramel-flavored cold brew with 2 pumps of vanilla syrup, topped with a lush, salted caramel sweet cream.

Ever since I tried this drink back in 2021 I've been obsessed! It's the perfect blend of sweet, savory, and creamy. 

When I want a strong kick of caffeine with just a little bit of sweetness and cream, the Salted Caramel Cream Cold Brew is my fave choice.

This drink is 220 calories, with 24g of sugar and 13g of fat.

As you can see, caramel coffee drinks at Starbucks are quite popular! Caramel just adds an irresistible layer to their sweet-yet-intense coffee flavor that I can't get enough of.

Iced Caramel Macchiatos always make me think of getting coffee with my dad and long afternoons catching up over coffee and pastries.  

It has 250 calories, 34g of sugar, and 7g of fat, but you can easily get those calories and sugar content down by subbing it with sugar-free Vanilla Syrup and another milk.

Iced Caffe Latte Standard Ingredients

  • Ice
  • Brewed Espresso

The Iced Latte is simple, yet timeless. For those who like a bit of a silkier texture yet nothing too sweet or complex, then the Iced Latte is a solid choice. 

I love getting an Iced Latte first thing in the morning or as a boost at lunch. It works so well as a staple order all year round - plus it's so easy to customize!

Simple, tasty, caffeinated - what more could you want?

With 130 calories, 11g of sugar, and 4.5g of fat, this Iced Latte is not bad at all!

Tips From A Barista
  • Try this one with Starbucks coconut milk or oat milk instead of traditional dairy for an even creamier flavor
  • Get creative with syrups to shake things up - I love adding cinnamon dolce syrup to mine

  • Milk
  • Mocha Sauce
  • Brewed Espresso 
  • Whipped Cream

When I'm looking for a decadent treat that's on the sweet side, the Iced Caffe Mocha is one of my go-tos.

When I treat myself to an Iced Caffe Mocha, I always end up finishing it in minutes because it's like a grown-up chocolate milkshake. It's rich, indulgent, and sweet, which is perfect for a dessert drink.

The mocha sauce really helps bridge the gap between the bittersweet coffee and rich chocolate.  

With 350 calories, 30g of sugar, and 17g of fat, it's definitely more of a treat than an everyday pick for me.

Tips From A Barista
  • Ask for a Tall and no whipped cream to cut calories 
  • Starbucks also offer an Iced White Chocolate Mocha for those who prefer white chocolate. I love ordering it when I want something a little different and a little bit sweeter.

  • Ice

  • Cinnamon Dolce Syrup
  • Whipped Cream
  • Cinnamon Dolce Topping

The Iced Cinnamon Dolce Latte is yet another espresso-based, rich, sweet drink that I can't get enough of. 

It's an elevated version of the standard Iced Latte that brings a lovely spiced sweetness to my morning errands. 

This drink is 300 calories, 35g of sugar, and 13g of fat, so it’s not exactly an everyday choice (though it is very tempting.) 

Controversially, I prefer mine without whipped cream and the dolce topping but they are a fun occasional treat.

Iced Toasted Vanilla Oat Milk Shaken Espresso Standard Ingredients
  • Ice 
  • Oat milk
  • Brewed Espresso 
  • Toasted Vanilla Flavored Syrup

If you're looking for an alternative to the Caffe Latte, this is it!

With rich espresso that's shaken, chilled, and mellowed, it has a hint of sweetness and just a splash of milk.

It's the perfect balance for me since I love that full espresso flavor but don't like it straight black. 

It has 100 calories, 14g of sugar, and 2g of fat which could make this a realistic daily drink.

I've been absolutely obsessed with this drink, especially the Iced Brown Sugar Oat Milk version, since I first tried it last fall. Now it's a regular in my morning Starbucks drink rotation. 

Tips From A Barista
  • Wanna shake up this shaken drink? Try one of these flavor alternatives: Iced Toasted Vanilla Oat Milk Shaken Espresso, Iced Brown Sugar Oat Milk Shaken Espresso, and Iced Chocolate Almond Milk Shaken Espresso

  • Water
  • Brewed Espresso

When I'm looking for a low-calorie, keto-friendly option, the Iced Caffe Americano is one of the best options. I just love that rich espresso flavor without the frills!

The Iced Caffe Americano is simply espresso shots topped with cold water, served over ice.

As fun as Starbucks' Frappuccinos and other specialty drinks are, sometimes I wanna get to basics and enjoy a pure coffee (though I splash in some oat milk on my way out!)

With 15 calories and zero grams of sugar or fat, you can see why it's such a popular drink.

How to Order Iced Coffee at Starbucks (Tips From A Barista)

Can you customize Your Drink?

Of course, you can! You can customize almost any drink at Starbucks, and iced coffees are no exception. 

You can customize your milk's type, temperature (steamed or cold), and quantity. 

You can select how much syrup you want or if it's a sugar-free Starbucks drink (if available in that flavor). 

You can decide if you want whipped cream, cold cream, or no cream. You can even choose the amount of ice in your drink!

Can you put flavors in your favorite Starbucks iced coffee?  

Absolutely! Some of them already come with flavor, but you can always change that or add one in.

Pumpkin (when seasonally available), caramel sauce, and vanilla syrup are the most popular flavors to add to iced coffees.

How much are the iced coffees at Starbucks?  

For a Grande Iced Coffee drink, it’ll be $2.65. An Iced Espresso costs $3.25, so you can expect most to be under $5.

Cold brew and nitro cold brew are a bit more expensive and will be $5-$6.   

How to Make Starbucks Iced Coffee At Home

There are so many good options at Starbucks, that you may not want to spend the money or time going there every day to get one.

Instead, make it in the comfort and convenience of your own home!  

Starbucks Iced Coffee at Home 

Here's what you're going to need: A French Press, simple syrup, cream, and a bag of ground coffee.  

  1. 1
    Heat up your water so that it's around 195 degrees (supposedly the perfect temperature for brewing coffee!). 
  2. 2
    Pour water into your French Press, and add coffee grounds. We recommend 2.5 scoops per cup of water, for a more “authentic” taste. 
  3. 3
    Stir with a wooden spoon and let sit for 4 minutes. Then, place the lid back on, and pour coffee over a tall glass of ice. 
  4. 4
    Stir in simple syrup and creamer to taste. 

Starbucks Cold Pressed Coffee at Home 

Alternatively, you can make your iced coffee with a cold-pressed method.[3]

Here's what you'll need: A measuring cup or big pitcher, coffee filter, and bag of ground coffee.

  1. 1
    Measure out 8 cups of water and pour 12 oz. of coffee grounds into the water. Stir once and cover. Let it sit for 24 hours. 
  2. 2
    After the 24 hours have passed, strain the mixture through a coffee filter into a pitcher.  
  3. 3
    Refrigerate contents for 8 hours, and then it's ready. You can mix this "concentrate" with a 1:1 ratio of water (it depends on how strong you want it). 
  4. 4
    Add simple syrup and creamer to taste.
