Ingredients needed to make this oat milk coffee


oat milk coffee recipe
  • espresso shots: A classic cold brew latte consists of a rich espresso that is then topped with warm milk and milk froth filled with air bubbles. If you do not have espresso, you can use instant coffee.
  • non-dairy milk: This iced latte isn’t made with regular milk like the ones made in the local coffee shop, it is made with dairy milk substitutes like delicious oat milk, almond milk, coconut milk or cashew milk. This simple oat milk latte recipe calls for store-bought oat milk which will overall have fewer calories.
  • sweetener of choice: Most homemade oat milk lattes have a natural sweetness attained from a range of maple syrup, agave syrup and homemade brown sugar or ordinary white sugar. This specific recipe calls for maple syrup which will add a slightly sweet taste to this iced oat milk latte.

how to make an iced oat milk latte 


 To obtain the best results, start off by whisking one tablespoon of espresso or two if you would like a strong coffee with four tablespoons of cold water, vanilla essence and maple syrup . Whisk the single or double shot or tablespoons of espresso until it turns into a light brown cream like froth  and set aside. Once this is done, decoratively place maple syrup on the inside of your mason jar, this step is optional. 

Now add ice cubes to your glass until three-quarters of the glass is full. Add barista-style oat milk to your glass until it is just about full then add the foam to your glass until it is full. The last step is to carefully stir your glass and watch how beautifully the coffee blends. Enjoy your latte whilst it’s still cold!

– adding almond milk: When comparing it to regular milk, even the unsweetened version of almond milk has a distinct sweetness and a subtle nutty flavor of almond. This difference can be easily noticed especially when incorporated into this latte recipe.

– soy milk: The taste of soy milk generally leans towards the mellower and smoother side, although there may be variations in flavor depending on the brand. In comparison to other non-dairy milk options, it usually has a sweeter taste.

– cashew nut milk : Cashew milk is a versatile plant-based milk that has a balanced taste profile, with hints of saltiness and sweetness and a subtle nuttiness. Its mild taste allows other flavors to be the star of the show, while still adding depth to any dish or beverage.
