As a busy working Mum some days I am exhausted! I love a nice iced coffee but I don’t always want to spend £3.50 and walk a mile to pick one up. If you’re here for the Dalgona whipped coffee recipe then scroll down!
As I’ve been working on a £100 grocery challenge recently I am trying my best to cut down on wasting money and therefore decided to use my Nutribullet to make a simple homemade iced coffee and this is my Nutribullet iced coffee recipe.
Nutribullet iced coffee recipe – what I used
I used instant coffee, sugar (granulated sweetener), Monin chocolate mint syrup and semi-skimmed milk. Obviously to make the Nutribullet iced coffee recipe I also used my Nutribullet.
I measured out two teaspoons of instant coffee, two teaspoons of granulated sweetener and I added around 50ml of hot water and a similar amount of cold water. I then gave it a stir with a spoon.
As you can see I only stirred it for a few seconds so a few granules of the instant coffee were still present. I wasn’t bothered about this and it didn’t affect the finished *Nutribullet iced coffee recipe.
Once cooled I blitzed it in my *Nutribullet for a few seconds. You shouldn’t use the Nutribullet with hot liquid as the steam build up can be dangerous. I may have almost sliced my face open once by ignoring this!
This is the mixture after it had been blended for a few seconds. It has a lovely airy consistency to it, and these bubbles are part of what makes my Nutribullet iced coffee recipe taste so nice in my opinion!

I then added cold milk + lots of ice to the mixture.
This is the mixture after I gave it another blast in my Nutribullet.
I got a glass and I ran a little Monin syrup around the edge. You could use any flavour syrup that you like and there are LOTS out there!
Nutribullet iced coffee recipe – the finished result!
While it doesn’t taste quite as luxurious as the one that I would usually buy in Starbucks it is around 1/3 of the calories. I am still perked up for the day too!
The flavour of this can definitely be enhanced by using a few of the other add-ons that you can get in Starbucks. Like whipped cream! I was making this in a rush and didn’t want to add lots of additional calories.
You could also use skimmed milk to cut calories further. Or a dairy-free milk if you wanted to make it vegan-friendly.
Nutribullet iced coffee recipe
- 2 tsp instant coffee
- 2 tsp granulated sweetener
- 50 ml hot water
- 50 ml cold water
- 200 ml cold milk
- lots of ice
- Monin chocolate mint syrup or any syrup of your choice
Measure out the instant coffee, granulated sweetener and then add the hot water, then the cold water.
Stir the mixture with a spoon. After a few seconds, there were a few coffee granules present still – but I didn’t worry about those.
Once cooled I blitzed it in my Nutribullet for a few seconds. You shouldn’t use the Nutribullet with hot liquid as the steam build up can be dangerous. I may have almost sliced my face open once by ignoring this!
Add the cold water and the ice. Then blitz in the Nutribullet.
Get a glass and drizzle a little Monin chocolate mint syrup around the edge. You could use any flavour syrup that you like and there are LOTS out there!
In total this Nutribullet iced coffee recipe takes about 2 or 3 minutes to make. You can just rinse the Nutribullet container clean afterward in a matter of seconds too.
I love my Nutribullet and find it really versatile. I use it for more than just smoothies. I’ve now made milkshakes, smoothies, pasta sauces, herb dressings, salad dressings and more!
It takes just seconds to blitz up a nice drink. Healthy or otherwise. I’ve made some AMAZING milkshakes with delicious goodies such as Ferrero Rocher and Mars!
How to make Nutribullet Dalgona Coffee:
Firstly. Don’t. Absolutely do not try to make a HEAT BASED froth in your Nutribullet. The lid can pop off if you blend heated drinks or foods leading to a potentially very serious accident. Speaking from experience here of the Nutribullet just flying past my face! But now you’re here I have got a great, simple Dalgona whipped coffee recipe!
How to make Dalgona coffee / whipped coffee:
You may have seen this whipped coffee craze just about everywhere! It’s HUGE on TikTok, which I’m a big fan of, and now I see it creeping into the old school social media channels too! It’s such a great, simple way to have a delicious, strong iced coffee, especially if you don’t have a Nutribullet.
It is SO simple, you can use a manual whisk or an electric whisker. I have used both with good success. You’ll need 2 tbsp of instant coffee, 2 tbsp sugar and 30ml of hot water. Then either run the manual whisk back and forth through your hands or use an electric whisker. The electric whisk takes about 10 seconds, and manual whisking takes around 3 minutes I find.
If it isn’t frothing up yet then keep whisking! Be patient, especially if whisking by hand!
Once you’ve got your lovely froth pour it on the top of some ice cold milk. I like to use a chocolate syrup, for a real treat, and some ice cubes to make sure it is super cold!
