Expert Tips and Tricks for Success
- Add brown sugar to freshly made espresso: To ensure the brown sugar will completely dissolve, add it to freshly made espresso and mix gently with a spoon.
- Shake the oat milk carton before pouring: This recipe does not require frothing the milk. You can shake the milk carton for a few seconds before pouring it into the glass with ice cubes.
- Adjust the size: The glass I used has 16 oz, equivalent to a grande/medium size at a coffee shop. Use a smaller or larger glass or a jar, and add ice and milk based on the glass size. You can adjust the espresso amount as well.
Substitutions and Variations
- Use different sweeteners: You can use brown sugar simple syrup or maple syrup.
- Garnish: Sprinkle a bit of cinnamon, nutmeg, or pumpkin spice as an optional garnish for a cozy winter or fall option.
- Make it a hot oat milk latte: If you prefer a hot beverage, heat milk and froth it with a handheld milk frother, pour it into a mug and add espresso.
- Substitute oat milk: If you don’t have oat milk or want to use dairy, feel free to use the milk of your preference.
- Optional add-ins: Add a little vanilla, hazelnut, or rum extract.
- Make your favorite espresso: Make your espresso using a traditional espresso machine using your favorite coffee beans, or in my case, I love using the Nespresso Vertuo coffee machine. For this latte recipe, I used Vertuo double espresso Scuro pod.
- Substitute espresso: Make a strong coffee or cold brew if you don’t have an espresso machine.
- Make it boozy: If you want to take it up a notch, add a shot of Kahlua or Baileys to make a boozy oat milk latte. Note that these liqueurs are not vegan.
How to Serve
This latte is best when served right away. I love the iced option, but you can make it a hot beverage.
As with most other beverages, it will be fine to drink them in moderation. This oat milk latte is vegan. I used regular oat milk from Oatly, which has fewer calories and fat than full-fat oat milk. There is also a low-fat oat milk option.
The main difference between iced coffee and iced latte is that iced coffee is made with brewed coffee, while iced latte is made with espresso. Another difference is that you don’t have to add milk to iced coffee.
I love Oatly for my lattes. There are several different options that Oatly has.
