A Cheaper Solution To My Cravings
I love coffee. I love chocolate. Then Dairy Queen has to introduce their Mocha Moolattes, and guess what? I love them too! However, there are a couple things that prevent me from ordering them too often. First of all, they are expensive. In my area, they are over $3. That's a little spendy for a treat, when a candy bar still costs $1. Secondly, I'm not a big fan of the ice chunks, unless they are ground very fine.
The solution to the problem, of course, was to make them myself. I actually got the idea of a friend who had started to do the same thing. In the beginning, I made them with the ice chunks too. Then I learned this easy and still delicious way of making a Moolatte whenever the mood hits. I recently had friends over and made a bigger batch in the blender. I received rave reviews, and requests for the recipe. Well, I didn't have a recipe, so for this Hub, I wrote down how much of each ingredient I was using.
The fantastic thing about making Moolattes at home is that you can tweak them to your individual taste. If you like a stronger coffee flavor, use stronger coffee. If you want more chocolate, add more chocolate. Want it thicker? Add more ice cream. The possibilities are endless. The purpose of this hub is to simply give you the starting point. Then you can individualize each Moolatte according to your own preferences.
You may notice that I have not included ice or whipped cream in the list of ingredients. This is simply because I do not care for those two ingredients in my Moolatte. If you wish to add them, go for it! I have also provided two additional links for other "copycat" Moolatte recipes if you wish to make them more traditionally. As you can see, they call for additional ingredients such as milk, cream, salt and sugar. Feel free to try those versions if you wish, but when I want a quick, easy, and cool summer treat, this is the recipe I use. Enjoy!
What You Will Need
- 3 scoops Vanilla Ice Cream
- 2/3 cup (approximately) Coffee, Fresh or Leftover, doesn't matter
- 2 TBSP (approx) Chocolate Syrup
It's Super Simple!
- First, scoop the ice cream into a tall glass.
- Next, add the coffee and chocolate syrup. It doesn't matter which one you add first.
- Stir with a fork until it is well blended.
- Drink it down! But not too fast, as it may cause brain freeze : )

Not The Healthiest Drink, But Delicious
Okay, so if you are watching your carbs or counting calories, this is not the drink for you. Luckily, I am pregnant and lost weight the first trimester, so a few extra calories isn't hurting me right now. While these numbers may seem outrageous, take a look at the Nutrition Facts for a Dairy Queen Mocha Moolatte:
- Calories: 660
- Total Fat: 25g = 38% Daily Value
- Carbohydrates: 96g = 32% DV
- Sugars: 83g
- Fiber: Og
- Protein: 11g
- Cholesterol: 40 mg = 13% DV
So as you can see, the homemade version of my Moolatte is actually a little bit better than what Dairy Queen serves, in regards to total fat, calories and carbohydrates. So you can have a treat that costs less and is a little better for you...not bad at all!
There are, of course, many different things you can do to this basic recipe. Two of the most common things that other people may enjoy are:
- Adding whipped cream to the top of the drink
- Adding ice chunks (to copy the original Moolatte more closely)
A note on adding ice chunks: if you decide you like them this way, make sure you grind the ice chunks in your blender first, before adding the other ingredients. Otherwise it is very difficult to get the consistency right.
Not everyone shares my love affair with chocolate. Some may prefer the Caramel Moolatte (or the Caramel Cooler from Caribou Coffee...another delicious drink). In order to make this recipe a Caramel Moolatte, simply substitute 2 TBSP of caramel ice cream topping for the chocolate. Or go wild and and do one TBSP of each!
However you decide to tweak it, I hope you enjoy!
