The Ingredients for Iced Strawberry Latte
Espresso Shots. Depending on how big of a caffeine lover you are, you may use one shot or a double shot of freshly brewed espresso. You can use your espresso machine, Moka pot, or any strong brewed coffee.
Chunks of Strawberry. We highly advise using fresh strawberries, but frozen strawberries are also okay. You will use these chunks to make a strawberry sauce that will give its flavor. When chopped, you can also use these chunks to mix with the drink itself.
Water & Ice Cubes. As always, we recommend always using filtered water on iced cubes.
Choice of Milk. You may use your preferred milk here. Some options you can try are almond milk, oat milk, coconut milk, and whole milk. Any kind of milk is acceptable to use.
Sweetener (0ptional). This totally depends on you. You can use regular sugar, coffee syrup, maple syrup, and even allulose to create a sugar-free drink.
Whipped Cream (optional). You can also top your drink with whipped cream if you like to make a refreshing cold foam.
How To Make Iced Strawberry Latte?

Combine the strawberries, water, and sweeteners in a small saucepan. Bring it to a boil over medium-high heat and stir accordingly. Let it boil for about 10 minutes.
