Top 16 Delicious Sweet Coffee Drinks:
1. Caramel Iced Coffee
We start our list with a simple, delicious coffee drink: caramel iced coffee. Refreshing cold coffee combines with rich caramel to make for an impressive — but fast — beverage. And you can take this recipe over the top with one of our favorite ingredients: coffee ice cubes!
2. London Fog Tea Latte
Technically, this latte doesn’t contain coffee. But it is caffeinated, and it brings together three delicious flavors: strong Earl Grey tea, smooth steamed milk, and just a hint of sweet vanilla.
3. Colorful Beet Latte
This latte is beautiful, but it isn’t all looks! The bright pink color comes from beets (in powdered or roasted form), which are naturally a little sweet. Add a dash of honey or brown sugar for a healthy treat.
4. Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappuccino
Not everything has to be healthy! The Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappuccino tempers bold espresso with Oreos, milk, and chocolate. Can you think of anything more satisfying?
5. Healthy Pumpkin Spice Latte
When the leaves start falling and there’s a new crisp in the air, many of us turn to the classic PSL. This twist on that classic features almond milk for a lower calorie (but still plenty sweet) pumpkin spice latte.
6. Gingerbread Latte
Next up, we have the gingerbread latte, another famously cozy drink. This recipe is full of spices and uses an unusual sweetener — molasses –that gives it added depth of flavor. Top with a freshly baked gingerbread cookie for a Christmas treat!
7. Maple Latte
You don’t have to be Canadian to enjoy this tasty drink! Try adding maple syrup to your latte for a sweet, complex coffee drink. Bonus points if you serve it with pancakes.
8. Whipped Coffee (Dalgona)
The internet has been abuzz with this fluffy, milky coffee drink for a while now. If you haven’t gotten a chance to try it, now’s your chance. And we’ve also put together a recipe for making whipped coffee without instant coffee!
9. Dunkin Donuts Iced Coffee
Dunkin Donuts is famous for its creamy, sweet iced coffee. You can make a homemade version that’s even better! It’s the perfect afternoon pick-me-up.
10. Mexican Mocha
Cinnamon and chocolate is one of the world’s best flavor combinations. Add espresso and a little cayenne and your taste buds will be in heaven! The Mexican Mocha is a drink that tastes impressive but is surprisingly easy to whip up.
11. Cafe Cubano
The espuma (foam) on top of this espresso drink is made by whisking sugar and espresso together. Luckily, you don’t have to fly to Cuba (or Miami) to try it!

What would a list of sweet coffee recipes be without a visit to New Orleans? The King Cake Latte is the perfect way to celebrate Mardi Gras — or any other Tuesday.

Vietnamese iced coffee combines strong steeped coffee with sweetened condensed milk. The results may not be low-calorie, but they are out-of-this-world delicious!

Looking for an alcoholic sweet coffee drink? Irish coffee is the king of coffee cocktails, mixing Irish whiskey with Baileys Irish cream and strong brewed coffee. A cozy treat that’s amazing in front of a roaring fire.
