Iced coffee is the perfect way to cool off during a hot summer day. But with so many different types of coffee out there, it can be difficult to find the right one for you.
However, flat whites are a great choice for everyone looking for something different. A flat white is an iced coffee that is typically made with whole or 2% milk. Not only is it creamy and frothy, but it’s a great alternative to the typical iced coffee.
But today, I’m going to show you how to make an iced honey almondmilk flat white. This coffee recipe will use almond milk rather than whole milk, and a touch of honey is added to give it a unique flavor.

Is the iced honey almondmilk flat white good?
The iced honey almondmilk flat white is amazing. It’s the perfect summer drink. The iced flat white flavored with almond milk instead of dairy milk, with a touch of honey, is a great combination that you’ll enjoy.
It tastes a bit sweeter than your regular iced coffees out there. I believe this has to do with almond milk. Almond milk has just a bit more flavor than regular milk and makes for a more balanced coffee drink.
The honey combined with ristretto shots is just amazing. Did you know that you can add honey to more coffees than just this iced coffee? You can check out the article I wrote about adding honey to coffee here.
What ingredients are used?
As I’ve talked about above, there’s just a few ingredients needed to make this amazing coffee recipe at home. You’ll need the following items:
- Almond milk
- Coffee beans to prepare ristretto shots
- Ice cubes in the freezer
The almond milk and honey are there to make this amazing take on the classic iced flat white. If you want to make a non-flavored iced flat white, I suggest you check out the recipe for it here.
You’ll need a good amount of ice cubes for this recipe. The ristretto shots will be poured onto the ice just when you’ve brewed them, so you’ll need the ice to cool it down.
Of course, you’ll need a few more ice cubes to make the drink cold and delicious to drink.
The coffee beans are used to make ristretto shots at home. I’ve listed a how-to for the ristretto shots below the recipe card. You can learn how to make ristretto shots that will be the perfect addition to this coffee recipe.
- 3/4 cup (0.18 l) of almond milk
- 1 tbsp (15 grams) of honey
- Two ristretto shots
- Ice cubes
This coffee recipe is delicious and super easy to make. Follow the below-listed steps to make the recipe:
- Add ice cubes to about halfway in a glass of choice.
- Brew the ristretto shots.
- Add the honey to the hot ristretto shots, stir them together, and add them to your ice-filled glass.
- Now, cold foam your almond milk.
- After the cold foamed almond milk is ready to go, pour the cold milk on top of your iced coffee and honey mixture.
- Serve the coffee straight away. The almond milk will start to combine with the coffee and honey mixture and will leave a nicely balanced coffee for you to enjoy.
That's it. You've just made an iced honey almondmilk flat white from scratch!
Optionally, you can switch out the almond milk for a different milk alternative or cow's milk. Although the honey is quite sweet, you can add more if you feel like the amount of coffee tastes a bit too strong.

Iced honey almondmilk flat white calories
The number of calories can change depending on the kind of milk you’d like to use. I’m a big fan of almond milk, but you might not be. If you want to use a different kind of milk, you can switch out the number of calories from almond milk.
- 3/4 cup (0.18 l) of almond milk has 30 calories.
- 1 tbsp (15 grams) of honey is good for 64 calories.
If you want to switch out the almond milk for milk of choice, retract the 40 calories and add the number of calories that the milk of choice contains.
Additionally, you can add a bit more honey to your coffee if you feel like it’s not sweet enough. When you double the amount of honey used, you’ll have to double the number of calories from the honey as well.
How to make ristretto shots?
Ristretto shots are the basis for this coffee drink. It’s important that you make a great-tasting coffee for this recipe.
Because the coffee plays a big part in flavoring this coffee drink, I suggest using either a dark or medium roasted coffee bean to make your ristretto shots.
These coffee beans will give you the most flavor and have the ability to still be tasteful, even though there’s a bunch of other ingredients added.
I like to make my ristretto shots with the AeroPress. The AeroPress is easy to handle, and the coffee that this brewer produces is just amazing.
I’ll be showing you how to brew ristretto shots with the AeroPress below. However, you can also make ristretto shots using a Moka pot or an espresso machine.
If you want to learn more about brewing coffee with the Moka pot, you can check out my beginner’s guide to brewing coffee with it.
You can also brew espresso or ristretto coffee using your Nespresso or Keurig machines. It’s all about finding the coffee you like the most and turning it into an even more amazing coffee drink for you to enjoy.
To make ristretto coffee using the AeroPress, follow the steps below:
- Finely grind 34 grams of dark or medium roasted coffee beans.
- Add them to your AeroPress cylinder, with the filter cap attached.
- Boil 1/2 cup (0.12 l) of water.
- Set the coffee-filled AeroPress cylinder on a cup of choice.
- Pour 80 grams of water on top of the finely ground coffee.
- Stir the coffee mixture with the stirring wand for 10 seconds.
- After 10 seconds of stirring, remove the stirring wand and place the remaining cylinder on top.
- Press down on the AeroPress, making sure to hold on tight so that the coffee brewer doesn’t slip out of your hands.
- Remove the coffee brewer from your cup, and you’re left with amazing ristretto coffee.
To clean the AeroPress, it’s best to wait just for a few minutes so that the coffee brewer can cool down.
Remove the filter cap from the bottom cylinder and shoot out the coffee puck. Rinse the coffee brewer and let it dry.
