Learn how to make a white chocolate iced coffee recipe.  This white chocolate iced coffee recipe is easy to make sugar free, keto, or dairy free.  It's absolutely delicious, and you'll save a lot of money by making it at home.  This white chocolate mocha iced coffee recipe is easy to make at home, too.


White chocolate iced coffee is my weakness.  Not every coffee shop has it, so at least that limits how much I drink when I'm on the go.


I learned how to make a Starbucks white chocolate iced coffee at home.  This saves me a lot of calories and a lot of money.





This is a very simple recipe.  You'll make a white chocolate syrup, but that can be stored in the fridge for several days.


Then it just takes a few moments to assemble your white chocolate iced coffee recipe when you want one.


You'll wonder why you ever waited in line in the first place!


White Chocolate Iced Coffee Recipe


What I love about this white mocha iced coffee recipe isn't just that it's so yummy, but also because it's easy to make sugar free, dairy free, or keto.


Yes, it's ridiculously easy to adapt this recipe for your needs.  First we will talk about the syrup, then I'll talk about how to modify it for your dietary needs.





What is In an Iced White Chocolate Mocha?


An iced white chocolate mocha has ice, milk, coffee, and a white chocolate syrup.  Some recipes call for a premade white chocolate syrup.  


You can use Torani White Chocolate Syrup, Ghirardelli White Chocolate Sauce, or Torani Sugar Free White Chocolate Syrup.


These syrups taste great, but I like making my own white chocolate syrup for my white chocolate mocha iced coffee recipe.


Is Iced White Mocha the Same as Iced White Chocolate Mocha?


A white mocha iced coffee recipe is the exact same thing as a white chocolate iced coffee recipe.  It's called white chocolate, but it's really vanilla flavored.



What Can I Add to a White Chocolate Mocha?


This white chocolate mocha iced coffee recipe is delicious on its own, but you can add more to it to take it to the next level.


Here are some good flavors or syrups to add:


  • Peppermint
  • Pumpkin spice
  • Chocolate mocha
  • Raspberry
  • Hazelnut


This white chocolate syrup recipe also tastes good in a vanilla chai latte.  



Is the White Chocolate Mocha Sweet


Yes, I think it's sweet.  I would not add more sugar to this white chocolate mocha iced coffee recipe.





How Do You Make White Chocolate Syrup From Scratch?


It's very easy to make a white chocolate syrup from scratch.  We are going to make one from white chocolate chips and milk.  


This makes a creamy syrup and not a clear one like you'd get in the store, but it tastes amazing in this white mocha iced coffee recipe.


You can also use it as a coffee creamer if you want to.


The Best White Chocolate for Copycat Starbucks White Chocolate Iced Coffee


You can use white chocolate chips to make this white chocolate syrup for your white mocha iced coffee recipe.  However, the better ingredients you use, the better your drink will taste.


White chocolate chips are perfect for making white chocolate chip cookies, but they don't work the best to make a white chocolate mocha iced coffee recipe.


Chocolate chips usually have a vegetable oil in them, usually palm kernel oil.  This vegetable oil doesn't melt well.  


However, white chocolate wafers are made with cocoa butter.  This melts better, so you won't have floating bits of unmelted chocolate in your white chocolate iced coffee recipe.





Iced Coffee or Espresso


I make my white chocolate iced coffee with cold brew coffee.  I don't use espresso because it makes me jittery.  However, I do have both ingredients in the recipe below.


You can use cooled brewed coffee or make Instant Pot coffee concentrate.  However, I prefer a cold brew.  


I either make my own cold brew or buy Stok brand at Aldi (it's available at other stores too).  I think it has the best flavor for a cold brew and isn't bitter.


How to make Keto or Sugar Free White Chocolate Iced Coffee


If you are limiting sugar or carbs, you can make some simple swaps to make a keto or sugar free white mocha iced coffee recipe.


  • Use keto or sugar free white chocolate chips (You can get them on Amazon, but they are cheaper at iHerb with free shipping at $20)
  • Use almond milk or a low carb milk of choice for the white chocolate syrup and for the iced white mocha.


Vegan or Dairy Free White Chocolate Iced Coffee


To make a vegan or dairy free white chocolate iced coffee recipe, swap both milks for almond milk or oat milk.


Use vegan white chocolate chips.  These can be hard to find, but Amazon has them.

White Mocha Iced Coffee Recipe Directions


Step #1
