How to Make the Sauce
First you will want to prepare the sauce. For this you need sweetened condensed milk, sugar, milk, vanilla, salt, and chocolate chips. Let the sweetened condensed milk, sugar, milk, and salt melt together in a small pan.
When the sugar dissolves, you can mix in your white chocolate chips. Keep stirring. You can’t over-stir! Now transfer the mixture into a squeeze bottle. This makes it easier to ensure you add the right amount to your drink.
Double or triple the sauce recipe and you’ll have enough not only for this DIY white chocolate mocha iced coffee but for more coffees too. It thickens up somewhat but will dissolve when added to hot coffee.

Tips for Making Starbucks Iced Coffee at Home
So you’re not going to have the exact Starbucks experience, either the in-restaurant drinking or the drive-through version. What you will have though is a really good copycat iced white chocolate mocha. And from the comfort of your own home too. What could be better?
First of all, the coffee is important. Well not only that but the type of coffee you use for this Starbucks iced coffee at home does make a difference. Brew the Starbucks espresso roast in a coffee machine or use whichever kind of coffee you want.
One great thing about making your own Starbucks iced white chocolate mocha at home is you can tweak the coffee to suit your palate. Use any brand of coffee you like, even non-Starbucks, and even instant! Really, it’s your coffee recipe so go ahead and personalize it.
No espresso machine for this homemade ice mocha? No problem. Use a Moka pot to make strong coffee.
I prefer using this squeeze bottle (same size in a 3-pack on Amazon). Since it has measurements directly on its side it makes it super simple to pour the correct amount of sauce into your cup. Enjoy with a compostable straw.
What Kind of Milk to Use in Homemade Iced Mocha
Whole milk always works nicely in recipes such as this Starbucks iced white chocolate mocha. But that isn’t your only choice. Consider 2% or skim if you want to sub a reduced fat alternative. Oat, almond, coconut, or cashew milk would also be fine here.
Do remember some of the ingredients in this DIY white chocolate mocha iced coffee recipe contain dairy – namely the chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk.
You can make this recipe dairy-free but you will need to sub the chocolate chips for a vegan variety and the sweetened condensed milk for ‘Carnation Vegan Condensed Milk Alternative’. Now the flavour isn’t going to be exactly the same but you can vegan-ify pretty much coffee recipe and enjoy those Starbucks flavour without the dairy.
How to Serve Starbucks Iced White Chocolate Mocha
If you are having this as a sweet treat, why not pair it with a DIY copycat Starbucks dessert? My personal favourite just has to be Starbucks oat bars. But I don’t want to drive over there and wait in line. I much prefer to make my own!
So if you’re also a diehard Starbucks coffee fan, make the bars and then make this Starbucks iced coffee at home. You can’t possibly go wrong with such a delicious combination!
