Nutella cold brew is an easy coffee alternative that you can drink any time of the day. Cold brew is so easy to make at home, and it’s a great alternative for those that don’t love the taste of hot coffee.
Below, I’ll talk about the ingredients in this recipe, the number of calories, and so much more! So, if you love Nutella and cold brew coffee, read along to learn all about this easy recipe.
What is Nutella cold brew?
A Nutella cold brew is a concoction made with cold brew coffee topped with milk, Nutella, a serving of whipped cream, and a good amount of ice cubes.
This drink tastes so sweet and delicious; I can’t believe it. I love cold brew coffee on its own or with recipes like these. For me, cold brew coffee is a perfect drink for the summer months.
Let me tell you a bit more about the ingredients and how you can switch them around to your liking. Then, I’ll cover the recipe and will also tell you about the number of calories for this drink.
What ingredients are used in a Nutella cold brew?
This Nutella cold brew uses just four main ingredients that I think most already have at home, have a look below for all the ingredients used:
- Cold brew coffee
- Whole milk
- Whipped cream
- Ice cubes
The above-listed ingredients make for a smooth, slightly sweet Nutella cold brew coffee. It’s perfectly balanced, and the cold brew coffee makes for such a good basis.
If you’re not a fan of using whole milk, you can switch it to a lower-fat milk or milk alternative. I’ve tried this recipe with almond milk, and it tastes just as amazing.
You’ll need a good amount of ice cubes to create that refreshing drinking experience for this recipe.
If you’re like me and love drinking your iced coffees while sitting out in the sun, I recommend using coffee ice cubes instead of regular ice cubes.
You can make coffee ice cubes with any brewed coffee that is then frozen, just like you’d with regular ice cubes. However, once they start melting, you’re left with more coffee in your iced coffees, so what’s not to love?

What is the best cold brew to use for this recipe?
Cold brew coffee can be made using so many different techniques that all have unique flavors and preparation methods. It can be pretty hard to choose between all these options.

|Name:||Steeping time:||Flavor profile:|
|Regular cold brew||15-16 hours||Easy-going|

It’s essential to choose a cold brew that suits your taste perfectly. I like my cold brew strong; you might like a more toned-down version with the same unique flavor characteristics.
Now that you have all the information about the difference in cold brew coffee, you can prepare it in advance and make the Nutella cold brew in just a few minutes. Have a look below for the recipe:
- 3/4 cup (0.18 l) of cold brew
- 1/4 cup (0.06 l) whole milk
- 2 tbsp (30 grams) of Nutella
- A serving of whipped cream
- Ice cubes
Once you've prepared the cold brew coffee of choice, it's time to assemble the Nutella cold brew:
- First, you want to slightly heat the milk so that the Nutella will dissolve very easily.
- You can do so in a small saucepan or use a microwave for this.
- Once your milk is warm, add the Nutella to it and give this a good stir until the Nutella has fully dissolved.
- In a tall glass of choice, add your cold brew coffee.
- Add enough ice cubes to cool your cold brew completely. I used 10 ice cubes for my drink.
- Pour the Nutella milk mixture on top.
- Top this all with a serving of whipped cream.
I like to serve this with a straw so you can easily stir the coffee for the most balanced flavor.
You can make the Nutella and milk mixture beforehand, just like the cold brew coffee.
By preparing the Nutella milk in advance, you can store it in the fridge, and you can use fewer ice cubes as every component is already cold.
