Chocolate-Hazelnut Iced Coffee


This vegan iced coffee explodes with rich chocolate-hazelnut taste, but it won't weigh you down like a barista-made Frappuccino. Using hazelnut milk and creamer will give you the nuttiest flavor, but if you can't find it, you can substitute another plant-based milk or creamer (it's also great with cow's milk if you don't care about it being vegan). Try chocolate or vanilla almond milk, oat milk or even macadamia milk. If you opt for a non-hazelnut milk, you might want to add an extra teaspoon of chocolate-hazelnut spread.

Nutrition Profile:


  • ½ cup cold-brew coffee

  • cup chocolate-hazelnut milk or other plant-based milk

  • 1 teaspoon chocolate-hazelnut spread (see Tip)

  • ¼ cup hazelnut creamer or other plant-based coffee creamer


  1. Add a few handfuls of ice cubes to a pint-size (2-cup) mason jar, and fill a tall glass with ice cubes.

  2. Add coffee, chocolate-hazelnut milk (or other milk) and chocolate-hazelnut spread to the prepared jar. Cover and shake vigorously until the spread has dissolved into the liquid, about 30 seconds. Pour into the ice-filled glass.

  3. Froth hazelnut creamer with a handheld or electric milk frother (or shake well in a separate 1-cup mason jar). Pour over the iced coffee and serve immediately.


Nutella works well in this recipe, but if you want to keep the drink vegan, opt for a vegan chocolate-hazelnut spread—Nutiva and Artisana Organics are two brands to look for. Whatever brand you use, be sure the spread is at room temperature—this will help it to dissolve.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
