The Cocomo at Dutch Bros is such an indulgent way to start my 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.

Imagine a melted Almond Joy candy bar swirled into a hot, iced, or blended coffee drink - that’s the Cocomo.[1]

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.

It Tastes Great!

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.

Now I'm normally a noted coconut hater but even I can't resist how rich and indulgent it is. It really it like sipping on a themed candy bar hot chocolate or milkshake.

It is the perfect afternoon pick-me-up that is sure to satisfy any coconut macaroon fans looking to sip on paradise.

It Also Looks Amazing!

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.

Sipping on this sometimes feels like a special secret - it seems like I'm drinking a normal mocha but it is so much more delicious than that.

What Is In A Dutch Bros Cocomo?

Ingredients List

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.

The Dutch Bros Freeze version uses mostly the same ingredients but chooses to use the Dutch Bros coffee rather than espresso to get that caffeine hit in.[2]

Are you surprised that the base isn’t coconut milk? I was too! I love adding whipped cream for a creamy texture to blend into my morning cup.

Calorie Breakdown

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.

When I'm watching my diet, I tend to get the small iced version so I can still enjoy myself without feeling guilty.

Caffeine Levels

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 anyone sensitive to caffeine due to the high caffeine content.

I know that I tend to order it earlier in the day to avoid messing up my sleep schedule.

Note that the nutritional facts will change depending on how you customize your delicious Cocomo Dutch Bros drink.

How To Customize Dutch Bros Cocomo

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.

Get a Non-Dairy Cocomo

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.

I prefer that the coconut is more of a cast member than the star of my Cocomo, so I love getting almond milk with chocolate syrup when I order one.

Try a Sugar-Free Cocomo

Requesting Dutch Bros sugar-free syrups can ensure that you get that sweet coconut flavor without sacrificing the taste or your diet.

I know that there are days when I would rather avoid a sugar coma but still want a little sweet treat.

When that happens, I make sure to ask my Bro-ista for sugar-free coconut syrup and chocolate milk as ingredients instead of the original ones.
