I’ve experimented for you and found the most efficient and tasty recipe for iced lattes at home!

Not only is it cost-effective to make homemade lattes, but I find the routine of creating something I love soothing and joyful. It is part of my morning routine!


Making my latte takes five minutes tops.


I brew my espresso with a Nespresso Machine. And oh my goodness – I looooooveee this machine.

Another thing I love about Nespresso is that they provide you with bags to recycle your pods in with each order. All you have to do is drop it in the mailbox to send back!

The initial investment is about $250 for equipment. But, after purchasing the espresso machine to start, each latte costs about $2.00. It has saved me lots of money in the long run.

If you are unsure about investing in an espresso machine, try tracking how much money you spend for one week on coffee! It may help you decide.

You can totally make this latte without the milk frother to start, it will just be creamier! I love my milk frother because in the winter I use it to make hot lattes as well.


1 cup milk of choice

2 Nespresso pods (I made two shots on the espresso setting)

1 cup of ice cubes

Simple Syrup (optional)


  1. Fill your cup with ice cubes
  2. Froth milk on the cold setting, or just pour over ice cubes
  3. Make two shots of espresso with Nespresso machine
  4. Pour hot shot over ice cubes and milk
  5. Stir and enjoy!

I purchased this espresso cup and make my shots in it.

I also have reusable straws to use! You can find similar ones here.

I have ice cube trays with silicone backs that make making a bunch of ice very easy, for those without an ice maker!
