Always popular, the Dunkin Donuts Coffee Coolatta is an easy way to enjoy a cool coffee drink at home.
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 hazlenut 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.
