Cappuccino Cooler Coffee Recipe

Table of Contents

If you like cappuccinos, you’ll love the cappuccino cooler. Think of the creamiest coffee-scented iced drink to quench your thirst while giving you that awesome caffeine buzz. Here’s a great recipe for a cappuccino cooler. 

The Cappuccino cooler is yet another take on the classic coffee drink of foamed milk and espresso. Still, this one is awesome! 

Here’s the deal. Although you might love lattes and cappuccinos, you usually wouldn’t enjoy a cup on a warm summer day; these drinks don’t go well with warm weather. What do you drink then? Here’s where the cappuccino cooler comes in.

What is a Cappuccino Cooler?

Imagine regular coffee, but cold. Now picture yourself blending it with ice and a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Doesn’t that sound tempting? Well, there’s more. We’re also giving the drink some color and a chocolatey flavor with a splash of chocolate syrup. That’s a summer drink right there.

Variations and Substitutions

The recipe below makes four cappuccino coolers, and I’m using vanilla ice cream, one because it’s rich and two because it emulates the creaminess in a classic cappuccino.

We might be using vanilla ice cream, but nothing stops you from making your cooler with any ice cream flavor, from rocky road to chocolate chips! As long as you choose an ice cream along the lines of coffee, chocolate and vanilla, your cooler will taste great.

When to Serve Cappuccino Coolers?

Whenever you want a caffeinated, milky drink but need to cool down, that’s when you serve a cappuccino cooler.

Since this delectable drink is pretty easy to make, it’s also ideal for entertaining friends and family; think of backyard grilling parties or dinner on the porch. 

You can unquestionably imagine this drink is also fantastic to enjoy just because, especially when you feel like treating yourself with something creamy and icy.

What to Serve with a Cappuccino Cooler?

The best way to pair this creamy drink is to think of other sweet treats. Think of an ice cream sandwich or something more subtle, like brioche. Cookies and biscuits will shine marvelously along with a cappuccino cooler, too, and you’ll soon discover this is a perfect drink to serve with cakes and other desserts. Did someone say tiramisu?

Let’s head on to the kitchen and make ourselves a lovely cappuccino cooler. What a great way to enjoy your morning cup of coffee!
