Making The Perfect Iced Coffee
Dunkin Donuts coffee is potent, but not overpowering. This is down to their incredible premium quality house coffee blends that offer a perfect tasting drink each time.
Generally, iced coffee isn’t difficult to make. All you need is strong coffee, milk (or a milk substitute), and ice – and the motivation to make the perfect iced drink.
However, a small spoonful of coffee creamer thickens the latte mix and adds a stunningly smooth flavor that really cannot be replicated.
But to achieve a drink that is similar to Dunkin’s version, it’s a good idea to dry shake ingredients to achieve a frothy texture for your drink.
But don’t go cheap on your coffee otherwise the final results won’t match your expectations! Instead, you should invest in high-quality ingredients to achieve a taste that more closely resembles the Dunkin Donuts Iced Signature drink.
Gather Your Ingredients
Buying all the necessary ingredients for this copycat iced latte recipe in one go can be quite an expensive task. And yes, it may cost you a lot more than simply purchasing a drink from Dunkin Donuts. But in the long run, it’ll save you some serious coin!
Purchasing individual ingredients and putting them together in the perfect blend can also be quite time-consuming – especially if you don’t know what you’re doing. But we’re here to help! Below, we have listed the necessary ingredients and the best way to make this drink.
- 1 tsp coffee creamer
- 1 oz espresso (room temperature)

- ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon sugar to taste

1. Brew Your Coffee
To make the ideal latte you need to begin with a strong coffee. Brew a strong espresso as normal using 6 tablespoons of coffee grounds per 1 cup of water. Do this in whatever method you prefer.
2. Adding Ingredients Together
In a mason jar with a lid (or a cocktail shaker) add your coffee, milk, and some creamer to create the base for your sweet iced drink. Shake vigorously until the mixture is frothy.
3. Assemble Your Latte
Fill your glass with ice and pour the iced latte over it. Top with whipped cream and flavor with your favorite toppings. From a sweet caramel sauce and cinnamon to crushed Oreos, the garnishing opportunities are endless with this incredible iced coffee.
And you’re done! Now you can enjoy a top-quality iced latte without having to leave the comfort of your own home.
