There are few things that I enjoy more than a good cup of Joe. Now take that cup-o-Joe and make it frozen and I am in heaven. I enjoy a hot cup of coffee in the morning but by the afternoon and into the evening I crave something cold. This Dunkin Donuts copycat coffee coolatta always hits the spot and is so easy to make at home.

The coffee coolatta has been around since the late 1990s but has recently become a mainstay in the Dunkin Donuts industry. They have a couple of different varieties – ranging from everyday coffee all the way to an Oreo flavored coolatta. They debuted the Oreo variety to celebrate the 100th year of the famous cookie. Cookies AND coffee? That sounds perfect.

I’m sharing the recipe for an original coffee coolatta. It’s simple to make, and I bet you have most of the ingredients on hand. You start with a coffee base, add some flavoring, a little milk, some ice to make it extra cold, and blend. It doesn’t get much easier than whipping up one of these frosty drinks at home!

I think the key to this coolatta is the hazelnut syrup. It adds sweetness and a little bit of nutty flavor to the coffee. Hazelnut syrup can be found at most grocery stores, or you could substitute a little hazelnut coffee creamer.

    Tried. Does not come out like Dunkins. I will keep trying. Next time I will not add milk because it makes it foam up. The ice does not have the consistency of Dunkins. Again, may have to alter it. More ice, less coffee. I will add milk to finished product. Basically, there is a reason a frappe machine costs a lot of money. Can’t 100% duplicate it.

      I altered this recipe a bit.I found vanilla sugar free syrup at market and blend w/ frozen ff coolwhip, and add hazelnut creamer instead of syrup. Do Follow the general recipe given .delicious!

    That sounds sooooooooo good!!! I used to have one every afternoon but haven’t had one in 6 years since retiring. Sadly, we moved and there is no Dunkin in the vicinity or a decent cafe! Now I can make one myself even though it is only 27F!!!! LOL!!! I will definitely keep the recipe for the dog days of summer which I can hardly wait! Thanks for the recipe
