How to Order and Customize Iced Lattes at Starbucks
Ordering a regular iced latte at Starbucks is very simple and straightforward — just ask for an Iced Caffè Latte and choose the size from Tall (12 oz), Grande (16 oz), Venti (24 oz), and Trenta (31 oz).
It’s a great starting point but there are also many interesting variations that you can try. I have already introduced my favorites in this guide.
In addition there are many ways to customize the latte to suit your personal preference:
Milk Options – There Are Many!
In addition to the espresso coffee shots, milk is the other important component in all lattes.
While the default option for a Starbucks latte is the 2% cow’s milk, there are also many other options to choose from. Your choice of milk affects both the taste and calories of your beverage and allows you to have a dairy-free Starbucks drink.
I usually order my latte with whole milk, but I also love it with almond milk, or sometime even with coconut milk.
Below is a list of all milk options available at Starbucks:
- Whole milk
- Nonfat milk
- 2% milk
- Oat milk
- Soy milk
- Almond milk
- Coconut milk
Syrups – More Flavor!
Syrups are a great way to add some flavor and sweetness to your iced latte drink. Luckily, most of them are vegan friendly and dairy-free.
Popular Starbucks syrup flavors include:
- Apple Brown Sugar (seasonal)
- Toffee Nut
- Vanilla (normal & sugar-free)
Sauces – So Yummy!
Sauces are thicker than syrups and can be added on top of your iced drink with some whipped cream.
Here are some Starbucks sauces that you should try:
- Dark Caramel
- Pumpkin Spice
- White Chocolate Mocha
Sweeteners – Natural or Calorie-Free?
Go for a naturally sweet option like raw sugar or honey or choose a calorie-free sweetener — the choice is yours!
And remember, you don’t have to have any additional sweetener. I actually like my iced latte without any.
Starbucks has the following sweeteners available:
- Raw sugar
- Liquid cane sugar
- Sweet’N Low
Toppings – Let’s Drizzle!
Finally, you can top off your latte with drizzles, sprinkles, powders, or foams — the options are plentiful.
Popular Starbucks toppings include:
- Caramel Drizzle
- Mocha Drizzle
- Cinnamon Dolce Sprinkles
- Cookie Crumbles
- Cinnamon Powder
- Whipped cream
- Plain and flavored foams
Use the Starbucks App
If you are in a hurry, I recommend that you use the Starbucks App to pre-order your latte.
This way the drink will be ready when you arrive and you can skip the line!
