COOL WHIP Cappuccino

By Angie McGowan |

When I want a cappuccino, and don’t want to break out the espresso machine, this is the little coffee I make. It’s a little trick I learned from my mother-in-law. To make her fabulous little mock cappuccinos, she takes some strong black coffee, from the pot my father-in-law makes that’s way too strong for anyone to drink, and adds some warm milk. Then she tops it with a huge dollop of COOL WHIP Whipped Topping and garnishes it with either chocolate or caramel syrup. Isn’t it cute?

You can also make hot chocolates the same way for.

COOL WHIP Cappuccino Recipe


1 cup strong black coffee
1/4 cup warm milk
(instead of the above you can also make an instant cappuccino from a mix)
1 large dollop (about 1/4 cup) COOL WHIP whipped topping
chocolate or caramel sauce for garnish


Combine hot coffee and milk in mug, top with COOL WHIP whipped topping and caramel or chocolate sauce.

    YUM! I love cappucino! And I have to say, COOL WHIP in it is much better than whipped cream…more flavorful… try it :-)

  2. marylweimer says:

    What a great idea! I’ll have to try this for my 2pm caffeine fix tomorrow ; ) It’ll be like a little reward!

  3. Caitlin says:

    Yum, the syrup on top of the cool whip makes it look like a fancy Starbucks coffee… but WAY cheaper :)

  4. TheNaptimeChef says:

    Isn’t it fun to add Cool Whip to something simple like morning coffee? I love how it adds that sweet boost without the hefty calories!

  5. Emily says:

    this looks too good! i’m going to try this with some chocolate syrup too!

  6. Stella says:

    I put cool whip in my plain coffee every morning for an extra sweet kick! But i will definitely be trying this cappuccino tomorrow — sounds tasty!

  7. mommyfriend says:

    Now that is genius. And easy. And did I say genius? What I like most about this easy recipe is that the drink looks fancy, meaning I can serve it at family get togethers quickly and easily with a flair of formality. It’s really not much more effort than making plain old coffee which I’d do anyway. Wonderful idea! Off to share it with everyone I know!

  8. Devan McGuinness says:

    Although today is too hot for such a lovely hot beverage, the crazy temperatures here have me craving this (for tomorrow when i know it wont be so hot). I would never have thought to add Cool Whip — but duh — quick, easy & awesome.

  9. Digital Molly says:

    Can I just say, that I MAY have wiped away drool looking at this photo? It’s a work of art and the recipe – so simple. This is one of those – why didn’t I think of that????

    Angie you know with my addition to caffeine I WILL be trying this one tomorrow morning. Looks ridiculously good!
