Life feels great with a sip of Starbucks iced coffee. The flavor! The richness of texture! All your senses suddenly get a jolt as you savor coffee with all the other elements unfurling like the petals of a rose.
I cannot think of those summer afternoons without those iced coffees, for sure. But these can also be your go-to drink if you want some extra kick to the moment on moderate December days.
So, do you have a favorite one from the range of iced coffees Starbucks offers? Or do you find it difficult to make a pick for the wide varieties offered?
Let’s explore the best options for you.
Best Starbucks Iced Coffee Drinks
Whether you like a simple iced coffee or something with complex flavors, Starbucks has everything to make you feel rejuvenated.
It’s time for you to check out the ones I find the best at Starbucks.
Salted Caramel Cream Cold Brew
Do you want a Starbucks iced coffee with a sweet taste? It has to be the salted caramel cold brew. It tastes like the classic caramel candies. So, having it is like taking a trip down memory lane and relishing the childhood days.
Though sweet in taste, it’s not very sugary. Compared to many drinks, it has less sugar (24 grams). Also, the caffeine boost it offers is 185 mg (Grande).
So, how about a sip this evening?
Iced Cinnamon Dolce Latte
Who does not love the whiff of cinnamon in their coffee? It’s one of the most rejuvenating matches. The aroma of cinnamon elevates and offers a much-needed kick for your palette. So, it’s more like your evening beverage and not your “morning cup of joe.”
The sugar quotient in this Starbucks iced coffee is high. The whipped cream lathered at the top further makes it a real delight for foodies who don’t want a calorie check.
Those little sprinklers add a touch of color to your drink; overall, the drink is a joy ride.
Iced Chocolate Almond Milk Shaken Espresso
The name itself says how exotic a cup of this Starbucks iced coffee will be. Especially if you are someone with a passionate love for chocolate, it’s going to hit the “Aha” spot in your heart.
The almond milk in the drink is, of course, a lot thinner than the regular whipped cream or milk you have in your coffee. But it’s healthy. So, you always have a brownie point for that. Also, the use of chocolate powder in the drink more than makes up for it.
The flavor of the chocolate malt power further gets a boost with the touch of espresso.
So, all the chocolate lovers, go for this Starbucks iced coffee.
Iced White Chocolate Mocha
If it’s about Starbucks iced coffee, for me, this one will always be at the top. How can you replace a classic with something that rose in trend?
It gives you the rejuvenation of a cuppa of hot coffee with the much-desired “cold touch,” of course. So, on a summer day or in an evening in the fall, it can be your buddy.
Moreover, I am the biggest fan of white chocolates. So, the velvety taste I get with every sip of the coffee makes me super happy. It’s sweet and rich.
So, if you want something soulful, you will have to go for this.
Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew
Did you know that it’s the 21st year of the Pumpkin Spice Latte or PSL from Starbucks? It’s must be great to still be so popular with coffee lovers. So, Starbucks has this thing with pumpkin and cinnamon. When this combination gets fused with a cold brew, some magic is there.
This seasonal Starbucks iced coffee works like a therapy on days you are a bit down or under the weather with a mild cold and cough. Trust me!
It has just the right caffeine content, with 185 mg in a Grande cup. The use of cream in place of frothed milk further lends it a unique texture.
The only reason to dislike the drink? It has too much sugar content. So, until you team it with a really spicy snack, it may be overwhelming.
Cold Brew Coffee With Milk
Oh, that’s a classic! You can have something elevated or more refined at Starbucks. However, you will never find an exact match for this classic beverage from Starbucks. Minimum sugar (3g) and a high caffeine content of 205 grams are the signature of this Starbucks iced coffee.
So, if you are someone who takes pleasure in the simple things of life, this one will be the choice for you.
A cup of cold brew coffee with milk can be a great choice to kick-start your day. However, thanks to the high caffeine content, it’s not suitable for the late evenings.
So, have a sip of this classic coffee to kick-start your day.
Starbucks Iced Coffee
Do you know the best remedy when you feel a little drowsy after lunch? It has to be Starbucks iced coffee without milk. It has something special, and the moderate sugar content of 20 grams suddenly boosts your energy.
However, if you want it to be less sweet, you can ask the barista to avoid the pump of sugar syrup in your coffee.
Please make a note of one thing. This one is only for you if you love the strong aroma of coffee and appreciate the strong flavor.
Otherwise, with little sugar and high caffeine, it may not be your desired coffee experience.
For coffee lovers, Starbucks is like a wonderland. From keto-friendly drinks to Starbucks iced coffee, you have a plethora of options to try. With unique recipes and some twists of additional elements, every cup of coffee gets an elevated taste, and it makes your day or evening memorable.
