This refreshing iced salted caramel latte is the perfect healthier homemade latte recipe that tastes like it's from your local coffee shop. It's a delicious way to start your day!

Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 8 ounces milk of choice
  • 1 Tablespoon date caramel
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1-2 shots espresso

Instructions

  1. Mix the milk, caramel, and sea salt in a liquid measuring cup or small glass with a milk frother or whisk.
  2. Fill a tall glass 3/4 of the way with ice (or coffee ice cubes - see "Pro Tips" above!).
  3. Pour espresso over ice, followed by the salted caramel milk.
  4. Sprinkle with sea salt and drizzle with extra caramel if you'd like.  Enjoy!

Notes

  • Definitely invest in a milk frother! It really helps the milk foam up nicely and elevates at-home lattes. It thoroughly combines the date paste, milk, and sea salt in this recipe.
  • If you don't have a fancy espresso machine, you can use instant espresso! All you have to do is add hot water. (I will say high quality espresso will be much better!)
  • I love using this homemade caramel sauce because it's made from dates, so it's a healthier alternative to traditional caramel sauces or caramel-flavored simple syrup!
  • I recommend using an unsweetened milk (if using a non-dairy milk) so you can control the amount of sugar that goes into this creamy iced caramel latte.
  • If you're a slow coffee drinker like me and don't want the ice to water down the salted caramel iced latte, you can make coffee ice cubes! Simply pour room temperature coffee into an ice cube tray and freeze overnight to use as ice cubes in this recipe!
  • You can use your milk of choice in this recipe: cow's milk (skim, low-fat, or even whole milk) or any non-dairy milk like unsweetened almond milk, oat milk, soy milk, cashew milk, coconut milk, etc.
  • If you want this iced caramel latte recipe to resemble Dunkin' Donuts (but with less added sugar and overall calories), you can still add a splash of heavy cream to give this latte an extra creamy flavor and texture!
  • To make the hot version of this recipe, simply follow the instructions on the recipe below but skip the step of pouring ice into a glass! You can make the hot espresso in a mug and then pour the salted caramel milk (after you've mixed/frothed it) into the mug and enjoy!
