Cold DIY Coffee Recipes Trending in 2024

1. Iced Matcha Latte

Iced matcha lattes are a favorite menu item from top coffee shops. This energizing green tea powder blends smoothly with milk or milk substitutes, and it is packed with antioxidants as well.

To make your own refreshing matcha latte at home, simply combine:

  • 2 tsp high-quality matcha powder
  • 2 tbsp hot water
  • 2 cups milk of choice, chilled
  • Sweetener as desired
  • Ice

Just be sure to thoroughly dissolve the matcha powder in a bit of hot water first so there are no lumps. Shake, blend or whisk everything together until frothy and garnish with your extras of choice. Bottoms up on this sweet Japanese-inspired treat!

2. Iced Turmeric Latte

Anti-inflammatory and superfood spices like turmeric have made their way into coffee drinks, which is perfect for the health-conscious coffee lover.

Rossette Coffee Lab suggests this golden latte recipe:

  • 2 cups very strong coffee, chilled
  • 1 cup milk of choice
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • Sweetener if desired
  • Ice

The key is to brew an extra bold batch of coffee that will hold up against the turmeric earthiness. Simply combine all ingredients in a blender until smooth and creamy. The cinnamon perfectly complements the turmeric root's woody flavor.

3. Cold Foam Cascara Frappe

Cascara is the fruit of the coffee cherry, dried and used to make a sweet tea-like infusion. It adds flavor complexity to drinks in an entirely new way.

The chilled cascara and cold foam upper layer make this iced frappe unlike anything you've tried before:

  • 2 cups strong cascara tea, chilled
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup cream or coconut cream
  • Sweetener if desired

Brew the cascara tea at double strength so it retains sweetness over ice. Beat or blend cream until airy to achieve cold foam texture. Assemble in a glass starting with cascara drink, topping with sweet foam. A true summer crowd-pleaser from your own kitchen!

4. Caramel Macchiato

Everyone enjoys a fluffy-topped caramel macchiato now and then. With just a small pitcher of steamed milk and some good quality caramel sauce, you can mimic your favorite coffee chain treat at a fraction of the price.

Ingredients:

  • 1 shot espresso or very strong coffee
  • 2 tbsp caramel sauce, plus more for drizzling
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • Sweetener optional

Heat the milk until frothy with a small steamer, French press, or even battery-powered wand. Pour hot espresso shot into a mug followed by half the caramel sauce to allow mixing. Top with the frothed milk and remainder of caramel. Finish with an artful drizzle over foam for an irresistible, made-from-scratch sip of caramel goodness.

5. Mexican Coffee Spiced Hot Chocolate

This unique spin combines coffee, cocoa, spices and milk for a comforting winter warmer straight out of Abuelita's kitchen. The ingredient list is simple:

  • 1 shot espresso
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2-3 tbsp chocolate sauce
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • Pinch cayenne pepper
  • Pinch salt

Heat the milk, chocolate sauce, spices, salt and espresso shot together, whisking gently. Pour into your favorite mug, top with whipped cream or marshmallows if desired. The addition of coffee cuts the sweetness and enhances the chocolate intensity beautifully. ¡Salud!

6.London Fog Cream Soda Float

A London fog is earl grey tea infused into steamed milk, creating a sweet, floral drink. Combining this popular tea latte with the fun creaminess of an ice cream float results in an unexpected coffeehouse specialty.

Ingredients include:

  • 1 cup very strong earl grey tea
  • 1 cup steamed or frothed milk
  • 2 scoops vanilla ice cream
  • Cream soda

Steep black tea bags in hot water for 5+ minutes for maximum flavor extraction. Pour concentrated tea into mug followed by hot, aerated milk which mimics the bubble tea texture. Top with a generous spoonful of ice cream then fill almost to the rim with chilled cream soda. The interplay between floral and creamy brightens any dreary afternoon.

Elevated Espresso Drinks From Your Kitchen

7.Lavender Cappuccino

Fresh floral flavors are taking over menus everywhere. This soothing honey-kissed capp is a splendid way to showcase spring lavender from your garden.

You'll need:

  • 2 shots espresso
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup, plus more for garnish
  • 1/4 tsp dried lavender buds
  • 3/4 cup foamed milk

Gently heat the honey in a small pan or microwave to thin it, then incorporate lavender buds so they infuse flavor. Pour honey mixture into pre-warmed mug then pull your espresso shots directly on top. Finish by gently pouring steamed, fluffy milk to fill the cup. Top with a drizzle of extra honey and dried buds for optimal Instagram appeal.

8. Brown Butter Mocha Breve

Breve refers to a latte made with half-and-half instead of regular milk for a creamier sip. Paired with luscious brown butter flavor, it makes this adult spin on hot cocoa downright drinkable dessert.

Necessary ingredients:

  • 2 shots espresso
  • 3-4 tbsp brown butter
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 cup half-and-half

Melt a few tablespoons of butter in a skillet until it turns amber brown for that sweet, nutty depth. In a mug, whisk together hot brown butter, cocoa powder and espresso until smooth. Add steaming half-and-half last and stir gently. Optional toppings like sea salt flakes or cayenne make tasty additions. Emulate the coziest corner café ambiance right at home.

9.Orange Almond Milk Cortado

The classic 2:1 espresso and steamed milk ratio makes the cortado a nicely balanced concoction. Sub in freshly squeezed citrus plus creamy, non-dairy milk for a bright warm-up beverage.

Gather ingredients:

  • 2 shots freshly pulled espresso
  • 1 orange, juiced
  • 1 cup almond milk, steamed hot
  • Pinch cinnamon

Pre-heat mug by filling with hot water while pulling espresso. Discard water, add shots, cinnamon and orange juice to mug directly. Steam almond milk until slightly bubbly then gently pour over mixture. The nuttiness plays perfectly against the orange zest zip. Salud!
