I figured that it was past time for me to share me recipe here for how I’ve been making it.

SO, that’s what I’m going to do today. It’s super simple to make and the syrup makes enough for about 4 drinks. That way, you can drink one SEVERAL times throughout the week (without having a ridiculous coffee bill at the end).

Ingredients we’re working with:

The ingredients in this are simple and you probably have them all at home already!

To make the brown sugar syrup:

This is super simple and takes less than 10 minutes! Simply combine all of the syrup ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a low simmer. Let cook for about 5 minutes or until the brown sugar is full dissolved. Then just let cool and you’re ready to shake together your drink!

This syrup makes about 4 drinks *using 2 tablespoons of it in each drink*.

To make the latte:

Once the syrup is made, all you need to do is pour 2 tablespoons over ice as well as a strong shot of espresso. Shake for about 30 seconds to chill and combine.

Pour into a tall glass filled with ice and then top the rest of the wya with oat milk. SO SIMPLE and easy!

This Iced Brown Sugar Oatmilk Latte is so simple to make and comes together in a few quick minutes. PLUS it’s so much cheaper made at home!



For the brown sugar syrup:

  • ⅓ cup of packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • ½ cup of water
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla

For the drink:

  • 1 shot of espresso (or make it a double!)
  • Ice
  • 23 tablespoons of the syrup (start with 2 and add more as desired)
  • ½ cup + of oat milk (fill the glass the rest of the way up to taste)


  1. Make the syrup by combining the brown sugar, cinnamon, water, and vanilla in a small saucepan. Bring to a gentle simmer and cook, stirring often, for 5 minutes. Once the sugar is completely dissolved, remove from the heat and let cool.
  2. To make the latte, combine 1 shot of espresso and 2 tablespoons of the syrup to a mason jar with a few cubes of ice. Shake vigorously to combine and chill the coffee.
  3. Fill a tall glass with ice, pour in the coffee mixture and add the oat milk. I usually start with ½ cup but often just fill it all the way up with oat milk. ENJOY!


*you can also use store bought brown sugar syrup as desired
