Iced Vanilla Latte Recipe
By Peanut Palate
🔪Prep Time: 15 mins
For the Vanilla Syrup
¼ tsp vanilla extract sub: fresh vanilla bean would be the best, but it is difficult to get. Use it if you have it fresh though!
2 tbsp water
2 tbsp coconut sugar sub: another dry sweetener such as xylitol, brown sugar or white sugar
For the Drink
½ cup oat milk sub: another plant based milk
½ cup ice
¼ cup coffee (needs to be cold – eg. chilled in the fridge) or half as much espresso
1To make the vanilla syrup, add the sugar and water to a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring it to a boil, constantly stirring to dissolve the sugar as the water heats up.
2Once boiling, lower the heat to medium-low and boil for 4-5 minutes. This will thicken the syrup.
3After this time, remove the pan from the heat and add in the vanilla extract or vanilla beans. Allow the syrup to cool for a few minutes. It will also thicken more as it cools.
4Once cooled down for 5 minutes, pour the ice into a glass, followed by the coffee, the vanilla syrup and then the milk. Mix to combine and enjoy right away!

Earth of Maria
I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
