This Iced White Mocha (Starbucks Copycat) is creamy, loaded with white chocolate syrup, and only requires 3 ingredients. So yummy and so easy to make. My favorite part might be the whipped cream on top. This iced latte is the best way to get your daily dose of caffeine.

My morning cup of coffee is the best part of my day. It is definitely something I wake up thinking about. Anyone else?


I personally love Starbucks. I know this opinion is up for debate, but I love their drinks. However, I try to limit the number of coffees I get out each month to save money. So I have had to become my own barista.


I bounce back and forth between coffee and espresso, but typically use my nespresso machine to brew my coffee. I love it & how strong their coffee pods are.


One of my husband’s favorite drinks is a white mocha, but Starbucks makes it a little too sweet for our taste, so I wanted to recreate it at home. And let me tell you, I think it's even better!


Highlights



  • Creamy & lightly sweetened
  • Topped with whipped cream and white chocolate
  • Only requires 3 ingredients
  • Much cheaper than buying a mocha from a coffee shop
  • Quick & easy to make


Ingredients

  • Espresso: If you do not have an espresso machine, you can use instant espresso powder. Follow the instructions on the package to prepare.
  • Milk: You can use any fat percentage or even plant based milk. I use ½ cup of nonfat milk and ¼ cup half and half.
  • White Chocolate Sauce: I use Torani’s White Chocolate Sauce, but any brand will work. Use 1 Tablespoon if you prefer a less sweet coffee. Use 2 Tablespoons for more of a white chocolate flavor.

Instructions

before you start



  • Make your espresso ahead of time. Ideally, I make my espresso the night before and leave it in the fridge for the next morning. This makes sure it is nice and cold and the ice doesn’t melt. In a pinch, you can make it and then stick it in the freezer for a bit until it is at least room temperature (the colder, the better).


Step 1: In a measuring cup, mix together the milk and white chocolate sauce until it dissolves.


Step 2: Fill a large glass with ice. Pour the espresso in first, then top it off with the milk. Stir if desired.

TIP - Garnish with extra white chocolate sauce, whipped cream, and white chocolate chips!


Expert Tips



  • Start with less white chocolate sauce. This will ensure your coffee does not become too sweet.
  • Use a frother to mix the milk and chocolate sauce. Using a handheld frother will help the sauce to dissolve better into the milk.
  • Add whipped cream on top. This really makes the drink taste like a traditional white mocha.
