Blueberry Muffin Oat Milk Iced Latte

We are definitely now way into iced latte season.  It was in the 80s yesterday outside, I definitely felt very warm on my run and wanted my coffee to be refreshing so iced latte it was!  I heard of a local coffee shop serving blueberry muffin lattes and really want to try one but have not done so yet because of lack of time and trying to save a bit of money by not buying coffee out a lot. So I decided to create my own so I could enjoy one!  So I made some Blueberry Muffin Oat Milk Iced Lattes for Eric and I and they turned out wonderful!

I started out with an oatmilk base of course, Oatly being my oat milk of choice, but I also really like Planet Oat.  You can use whatever your favorite oat milk is though.  This is off topic but I feel like oat milk was really a game changer for delicious dairy free coffee.  I used to be an americano with flavor shots girl all the way but now that there are actually good vegan milks to serve in your coffee like oat milk I am a latte girl!  This time I blended the oat milk with blueberry puree, vanilla, maple syrup and a touch of cinnamon to give it that blueberry muffin flavor.  You could totally do this hot too if you don't like iced lattes just heat the milk first.

The blueberry milk would be delicious on is own but it is so perfect poured over strong brewed coffee!  I put the coffee on ice first then added it.  Lastly I added a little bit of vegan whipped cream on top which is totally optional and I don't always do it but I felt like bougie coffee this time.  I also topped it off with a sprinkle of cinnamon.  I got the vegan whipped cream at Aldi in case you were wondering and they have it in coconut or almond.  I like the almond because it comes out of the can better when you get to the bottom.

These lattes turned out sooo good!  I felt like I was drinking fancy coffee from a coffee shop but in the comfort of my own home!  I have a feeling I will be making a lot more of these over the coming months. They are the perfect thing to relax on the patio with!  If you are in the mood for some delicious iced coffee, definitely give this Blueberry Muffin Oat Milk Iced Latte a try!
