 So many of my readers are fans of getting their daily coffee drinks at coffee shops and when I heard about the newest summer coffee drink from Starbucks, I knew that I had to recreate it at home. The name alone of this coffee drink sounded so delicious. Sweet brown sugar and creamy oat milk with a rich cup of coffee made my taste buds get excited. This was a coffee latte that I knew that I could make at home without even trying the popular coffee drink.

While I like visiting coffee shops for my coffee fix, my dairy allergy makes it hard. I have to keep a careful eye on the coffee barista who is making my coffee order so they don't accidentally add milk to my coffee drink. I have had a couple of bad experiences with my coffee drinks from coffee shops in the past that have resulted in me feeling sick to my stomach for hours and experiencing an asthma attack. My food allergy symptoms usually set in 1-2 hours after I eat any dairy products.

No long line with this summer coffee drink

 Other reasons to make your own coffee at home are you save money and there is no long line in your kitchen. So you will save time when you make your coffee at home. I know that people say that coffee shop coffee tastes better but I so disagree. Brewing coffee at home tastes so much better to me. Once you learn how to brew the best coffee, you will start making your coffee drinks at home. You don't even need a fancy coffee maker to make delicious coffee at home, especially when you make cold brew coffee.

+ Delicious

+ Nut-Free

+ Perfect for summer

+ Plant-based

+ Vegetarian

+ Rich in flavor

Supplies needed to make a great cup of coffee

+ Coffee Maker or a pour-over coffee cone

gooseneck water kettle

+ Unbleached Coffee Filters

+ Mason Jar or big glass jar

+ Coffee Mugs

+ Quality Coffee Beans or quality ground coffee

+ Coffee Scoop

+ Coffee Grinder

+ Coffee Bar supplies like syrups, creamers, and other sweeteners

+ Plant-based Milk

 The most important supply that you need to make a great cup of coffee at home is quality coffee beans. Don't go cheap on your coffee. It may seem that the best-tasting coffee may seem over-priced but that bag of coffee beans will pay for itself after making 3 cups of coffee. A 12-ounce bag of quality coffee may be priced between $10 -15 dollars but it will make 16 -22 cups of coffee. That fancy coffee you buy at the coffee shop runs $5 - 7 dollars a drink, so do the math.

 I am a coffee snob when it comes to buying my coffee beans. Quality coffee is on a coffee lover must-have list of products. I also like purchasing coffee beans from around the world. I also like supporting businesses that give back to the community. My latest find in quality coffee beans is from Fire Department Coffee. Their Honduran Coffee beans make a great cup of coffee. These rich coffee beans from Central American have a smooth tint and slight sweetness.

 Fire Dept. Coffee is a veteran-owned business that's run by firefighters who sell high-quality coffee, with 10% of net proceeds donated to help first responders that have become sick or injured while on the job. All of our coffee is roasted and shipped from Rockford, IL right here in the USA. 

Ingredients needed for  Iced Brown Sugar Oat Milk Coffee Latte

+ Coffee beans or ground coffee

+ Brown sugar

+ Oat Milk ~ See my recipe for homemade oat milk

+ Ice cubes

 Three ingredients, four if you include the ice, are all you need to make this delicious summer coffee drink. The original Iced Brown Sugar Oat Milk Coffee espresso drink that I discovered uses a brown sugar syrup that you can make at home but that is too time-consuming in my opinion. The copycat coffee recipe from Starbucks also uses shots of espresso and that requires one to have an espresso maker. So my recipe for Iced Brown Sugar Oat Milk Coffee Latte is easy to make. The recipe uses a strong cup of hot brewed coffee, brown sugar, and oat milk. It is that simple!

While you can use other plant-based milk, I recommend buying oat milk as oat milk is creamier and adds great flavor. Oat milk is creamy, delicious, plant-based milk that is perfect for the best dairy-free cup of coffee.

How to make Iced Brown Sugar Oat Milk Coffee Latte

Making the Iced Brown Sugar Oat Milk Coffee Latte is super easy and there is no need for fancy shaking or coffee equipment. If you can brew a cup of coffee then you can make this dairy-free coffee drink. If you have a coffee maker, all you have to do is increase the amount of ground coffee to make the coffee more rich and bold or decrease the amount of water needed. Since you will be adding the hot coffee to the oat milk, you will want stronger coffee.

If you don't have a coffee maker, I recommend buying a pour-over coffee cone. I prefer to make my coffee with the pour-over coffee method as it results in a better-tasting cup of coffee that has no bitterness. If you can boil water, you can make coffee with the pour-over coffee cone. You simply place a paper coffee filter in the pour-over cone and add the ground coffee. Then you pour the boiling water over the ground coffee to brew the coffee. The ideal temperature is 195-205 degrees Fahrenheit. I use a gooseneck water kettle that has a thermometer in it so my hot water is always at the perfect temperature.

Once you brew the coffee, you add the brown sugar to the hot coffee. The heat will dissolve the brown sugar, so no need to make fancy coffee syrup. Then let the coffee cool down by placing it in the fridge for about 30 minutes. You can make this coffee mixture the night before to save time. Then add the oat milk to a glass with ice and pour in the coffee. Stir the drink and enjoy!

Yield: 1 large cup
Author: Mom Knows Best
Dairy-free Iced Brown Sugar Oat Milk Coffee Latte is an iced drink made with brown sugar, coffee, and oat milk.


  • 2 Tablespoons Ground Coffee 
  • 8 Ounces Water
  • 2 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 Cup Oat Milk
  • 6-8 Ice Cubes


  1. Brew the coffee to make 8 ounces of coffee. If using the pour-over coffee method, boil one cup of water. If using a coffee maker-add 8 ounces of water to the machine.
  2. Once the coffee is brewed add it to a large glass with the brown sugar, I like using a Mason jar that is between 12 - 16 ounces. Stir the coffee well so the brown sugar can dissolve.
  3. Place the coffee in the fridge for about 30 minutes to cool down.
  4. Once the coffee mixture has cooled down add the oat milk and ice cubes to the glass. Stir to combine and enjoy!
