Why Nutella is a great add-in for your daily coffee
The creamy and sweet flavor of Nutella is unmatched. It’s so simple to add a bit to your coffee and create a whole different-tasting coffee.
Because you can buy it almost anywhere, you can always have some on hand. It’s also a great way to make amazing coffees when family or friends are coming over.
You won’t have to go through the trouble of making chocolate sauce or any other flavorings to make your coffee taste different than normal.
And the best part about all? You can use it for any coffee you like to drink! Below, I’ll talk more about the coffee I recommend adding the Nutella to:
What is the best coffee to use?
Making Nutella coffee at home is super easy, and the best thing is: you can use your favorite coffee!
If you want the easiest Nutella coffee, brew a nice cup of coffee with your Nespresso or Keurig machine.
You add the desired amount of Nutella to freshly-brewed coffee and stir until well mixed.
The result is a rich, flavorful drink that tastes much like chocolate coffee. It’s light and sweet enough for breakfast or late in the morning when you want something nutritious but not heavy.
A few other ways of making coffee at home is with the following coffee brewers:
- Hario V60
- French press
You can also use the French press, which is my favorite coffee brewer for this recipe. The French press makes a more robust coffee because the ground coffee is steeped with water, making it the strongest coffee out of the three brewers.
Depending on your flavor preference, you can choose one of the coffee brewers above.

Now that you know all about it, let’s jump into the recipe so you can make it yourself:
- 3/4 cup (0.18 l) of brewed coffee
- 2 tbsp (30 grams) of Nutella
- A serving of whipped cream
Collect all the ingredients needed for the recipe. After that, follow the steps below to make your Nutella coffee:
- The first step in this recipe is brewing the coffee. Make sure to choose the coffee that you love the most.
- After your coffee is brewed, grab a tall glass.
- Add the Nutella to the glass.
- Pour roughly half the coffee into the glass.
- Stir the Nutella and coffee until everything is well-combined. This can take a few seconds.
- Then, pour the remaining coffee into the glass and give it another mix.
- Finally, finish your Nutella coffee with a serving of whipped cream.
- You can serve it with a straw or spoon so you can easily stir the whipped cream through the coffee.
Now, all there's left to do is enjoying your homemade Nutella coffee!
You can use as much or as little whipped cream in your coffee; this depends on the level of sweetness you prefer in your daily coffee.

How many calories are in Nutella coffee?
This decadent coffee is pretty high in calories. Because of the combination of the sweetness from Nutella and whipped cream, the total number of calories is 251.
The Nutella makes up for 200 calories and the whipped cream 51. If you’re going to make this coffee without whipped cream, you’ll also lower the number of calories.
Although the calories are high, it’s a delicious treat. I like to make it every once in a while and really enjoy it!
