Nutella Coffee Frappe

Hi Everyone,

Need a mid-week pick me up?  If you do, I have the sweetest low-calorie coffee drink for you.  But first I have to tell you this was a tough recipe to make!  All the testing and tasting, boy do I have a tough job! It stinks to be me.  ha ha

I have to say, dam you Hilton hotel in Paris for having Nutella out next to all your gourmet pastries.  If it wasn’t for that darn hotel I would never of tried Nutella and now I am hooked, line and sinker!!

This weeks coffee drink is NOT made with Nutella, but it tastes like it!  I made it twice, first the tester and second was to make sure it was right!  The first version was made with chilled coffee and ice cubes.  Plus I used a Tully’s French Roast K-Cup Coffee.  It tasted wonderful!!  The coffee really makes it, so make sure you use the coffee you like.  To test it, I had my jar of Natella next to me so I can compare tastes.  Now this isn’t identical to Nutella because it has a slight coffee taste to it, but other than that, the taste is spot on. Here’s the picture from batch number 1 made with ice cubes.

The second batch I made I used Nescafe Decafe coffee that I took from the Hilton.  They were in my room, so I thought I would take a few home since I didn’t have any decaf instant coffee.  I will admit I like Tully’s French Roast coffee better than the Nescafe.  When I made this batch I used frozen coffee rather then ice cubed.  I like the consistency better because it’s more like a  Frappuccino.  The flavor is still spot on.  I think to make this drink even better, would be mixing the whip cream in to give it a richer, creamier flavor.  I did that after I took my pictures.  Oh it’s so good!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I made this coffee using imitation hazelnut extract that I picked up from my local grocery store.  To give it a chocolate taste I used 1 tablespoon, plus 1/2 teaspoon of unsweetened cocoa powder and for the creaminess I used non-fat milk and coconut milk.  To top it off I added Redi Whip fat Free Whip Cream and a drizzle of Nutella for a pretty look.  In the calorie count I did include the whip cream because I think it’s just perfect in this drink!

If you’re a fan of hazelnuts then this is the coffee for you.  Honestly I never likes hazelnut flavored coffee or syrups, yet I love Nutella.  It must be the chocolate in it?  I wanted to create this drink to be healthy and low-calorie and I think I succeeded.  It makes a little over 2 cups and comes in at 68 calories.  Not to shabby for a chocolate Frappe that tastes like Nutella.

  1. There’s no way I could every live in france with all the nutella, bread and cheese! I’d weigh 500 pounds! But thanks to fabulous treats like this, I can get that nutella essence without all the calories. Love it!

  2. Oh my god, this is the coffee drink of all coffee drinks. I think I may need to bump this to my number one, even in front of the caramel frappe!

    I’m completely obsessed with Nutella!!! I bought it in the big jar at the grocery store since I seem to go through it so fast.

    As for what to make next, definitely something with chocolate!!!!!

  4. WOW! This looks amazing, you know you got me thinking now about a Biscoff Frappe – you are bad for me :)

  5. thelady8home says:

    I am so so fond of Nutella that I had to come here through Amber’s blog hop. What a fabulous recipe!! This coffee rocks.

  6. You are quickly becoming my go-to girl for coffee drinks :) Love the Nutella in this one!

  7. what kind of coconut milk do you use, the canned or the one in the cooler,

  8. Oh my gosh. The stats on this are unreal! I must get hazelnut extract and try this now!

  9. This SOUNDS so decadent, but the nutrition stats say otherwise! Yum!

  10. Oh wow! This recipe has made my morning!

  11. Could I just use Nutella in this, instead of buying extract and coconut milk? I’ll let you know if I try it!

  12. Oh dear, I think this is going to be in my tummy soon. Thank you for doing all the grunt work and testing it out :) I had a similar European experience a couple summers ago–everywhere we went little packs of Nutella were available with our meals like at hotel breakfasts, etc. I was already a huge fan and was plumping up nicely with the additional Nutella packs as part of my daily vacation regimen. :)

  13. Hi Jennifer, one more delicious recipe, one more success on RecipeNewZ and one more feature for you on our Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/RecipeNewZ. Keep them coming!

  14. I buy my Nutella in bulk from Amazon. Thank you for linking this up with Weekend Potluck. I cannot wait to try it and will pin to my Nutella board. :)

  15. We love nutella! This looks delicious! Thanks for sharing on Foodie Friends Friday! Please come back on Sunday to VOTE!

  16. I’m pretty sure that I could drink this every day, and never get tired of it. I love iced coffee.

    Stop by on Friday, you are one of the featured recipes for Sweet Tooth Friday!

  17. This looks so amazingly delicious! I wish I had one in front of me right now

  18. snickerdoodle frappe?

  19. Would it be ok to sub unsweetened almond milk for coconut milk? I can get the almond milk easily around here, but not so sure about coconut! Can’t wait to try your recipes!

  20. You’re killing me! I know I have some instant coffee in the cabinet so there’s no reason not to make this today. Mine won’t be quite as healthy as yours, I don’t have the coconut so I’ll have to substitute just a bit. Thanks for sharing, pinned!

  21. Ok…I LOVE nutella and was excited to try this tonight. I had to order the hazelnut extract (since EVERY store in town here doesn’t sell it…). Used all the same ingredients except for the whipped cream (I used soy). And, honestly, if it wasn’t for the whip cream, this drink would have been horrible. I was actually really disappointed. It tasted like I was just drinking hazelnut extract. The cocoa and flavors didn’t really blend at all. So sad….

  22. Would the canned coconut milk work in this recipe?

  23. It looks wonderful to the sight and marvelous to the taste. Love it.

  24. I share you passion for Nutella, and this Nutella coffee looks wonderfull!
