The Cocomo at Dutch Bros is such an indulgent way to start your day.
Many customers love this velvety sweet drink, but what is in the Cocomo mocha?
I dove deep to find out everything you need about the Cocomo at Dutch Bros and how to make Dutch Bros' Cocomo at home below.
The Cocomo From Dutch Bros (What Makes It So Popular?)
Imagine a melted Almond Joy candy bar swirled into a hot, iced, or blended coffee drink - that’s the Cocomo.
Introduced in 2011 to replace the Cocofusion line, the Dutch Bros Cocomo drink is a highly popular coconut mocha beverage available year-round.
Currently, you can get your Cocomo fix in Classic or Freeze editions.
The Dutch Bros Cocomo flavor is very similar to Almond Joy or Mounds bars, blending the sweetness of chocolate, the richness of coffee, and a nice kick of refreshing coconut into one.
Dutch Bros' Cocomo is a refreshing alternative to the standard mocha, thanks to the coconut twist.
It is the perfect afternoon pick-me-up that is sure to satisfy any coconut macaroon fans looking to sip on paradise.
At first glance, the Cocomo appears to be a regular hot or iced mocha topped with whipped cream.
It often has an appealing medium to light brown color and smells both sweet and rich.
What’s In a Dutch Bros Cocomo?
The Classic version mixes coconut syrup, their exclusive chocolate milk, and bold espresso.
To make your drink, the broista follows the official Dutch Bros Cocomo recipe.
Are you surprised that the base isn’t coconut milk? I was too!
You can add whipped cream for a creamy texture that you can blend into your morning cup.
What is the nutritional value of the Cocomo Dutch Bros? In terms of calories, the Cocomo is a heavy hitter.
A small Classic Cocomo has 280 calories when iced, 400 when hot, and 510 when blended. The small Freeze edition knocks it out of the park at 540 calories.
These numbers only get higher with larger Dutch Bros cup sizes - plan accordingly if you are watching your caloric intake.
Just how much caffeine is in a cup of Cocomo?
The Cocomo Dutch Bros provides is caffeinated, providing around 64 mg per 8 fluid ounces of liquid, which is about average for most coffee drinks.
I don’t recommend giving this to small children or those sensitive to caffeine due to the high caffeine content.

Note that the nutritional facts will change depending on how you customize your delicious Cocomo Dutch Bros drink.
Dutch Bros Cocomo Customizations (Make It Yours!)
Dutch Bros’ Cocomo is a little trip to paradise in a cup, but how can you make it truly yours?
There are a few ways to customize your Cocomo beyond the standard menu size and temperature that can satisfy your sweet tooth.
It is possible to make the menu Cocomo a vegan drink at Dutch Bros by skipping the whipped cream and requesting cold coconut milk be used in the chocolate milk instead of standard dairy.
If you ask for coconut milk, you can also request chocolate syrup to get that chocolate flavor.
Alternatively, you can mellow out the coconut flavor a bit by using almond or oat milk.
Requesting Dutch Bros sugar-free syrups can ensure that you get that sweet coconut flavor without sacrificing the taste or your diet.
Make sure to ask your Bro-ista for sugar-free coconut syrup and chocolate milk as ingredients instead of the original ones.
