Tiramisu Frozen Coffee – Make your morning coffee even more exciting with a boost from the flavors of tiramisu. Made with double-strength coffee, milk, creamy marscapone cheese, crushed ladyfingers, chocolate syrup, and crushed ice, this tiramisu frozen coffee will transform your morning routine!
Coffee has always been a huge part of my life. I can thank my Colombian heritage for that. When my grandmother would visit from Colombia, she would bring me and my sisters these little coffee candies. I was maybe 10 or so and was completely OBSESSED with those candies. So you can say my love affair with coffee started pretty early!
Fast-forward to adult life and you can find me enjoying at least one cup hot coffee every morning during the workweek. I cannot function without it; coffee runs my life. Who’s with me???
But on the weekend, I like to jazz up my coffee routine a bit. I have more time on weekend mornings so why not spend a little more time making a fancy, indulgent coffee beverage?!
Enter my newest coffee confection: Tiramisu Frozen Coffee.
After one sip of this coffee concoction, I was hooked! Super refreshing and slightly sweet from the flavors of tiramisu, this was the best way to spend my Saturday morning.
And what’s even better, it’s super simple to assemble! All you have to do is combine double-strength coffee, milk, a little sugar, chocolate syrup, marscapone cheese, ladyfingers, a hint of almond extract, and ice in a blender, blend, and voila! You have yourself a tiramisu frozen coffee in seconds!
The almond extract is such a small touch but it’s impact is not hidden whatsoever! I think it gives the drink a special international flavor that suits the rest of the tiramisu elements just right. So trust me when I say that you should not skip out on it!
When it comes to the coffee, my husband and I are super snobby about only drinking the best. We’ve both worked in coffee shops at one time or another so we know what great coffee tastes like. That’s why we choose Dunkin’ Donuts® coffee to brew at home. It’s super flavorful and balanced and the perfect addition to our mornings. His favorite is the Dunkin’ Donuts Dark Roast, while my favorite is, to no one’s surprise, the 100% Colombian Roast.
As you can see above, we bought the coffee in grounds. But Dunkin’ Donuts coffee is offered in K-Cups and whole beans, too! And in so many other flavors too. You can check out the whole lineup of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee products here. All of these are available at your local Publix, which is where we did our shopping.
When you do your Dunkin’ Donuts shopping at Publix through May 6th, you can get $1 off any one (1) Dunkin’ Donuts variety, while supplies last. Before you go, make sure to get your coupon here!
Before you get started on the frozen coffee, here are a couple tips for ya:
- It’s very important that you make the coffee double-strength. That means double the amount of grounds but keep the water amount the same. I made this frozen coffee with single and double-strength and the coffee flavor is much more prominent with the double-strength, while the single-strength tastes a little watered-down.
- I would suggest brewing the coffee the night before you plan to enjoy it so you can chill it in the fridge overnight. But if you decide to make this the morning-of, no worries! I just placed my freshly-brewed coffee in the freezer and it only took about 45 mins- 1 hour to cool it down. Whatever you decide to do, make sure it’s completely cooled down before trying to blend. Otherwise, the coffee will melt the ice before it can blend so it will become liquidy and probably still a little warm.
- The ladyfingers carry the essence of the tiramisu so don’t make this drink without them! If ladyfingers are a new ingredient to you, you can easily find them at Publix in the cookie aisle. Just make sure to look near the fancy international cookies.
- Don’t forget to get your toppings for your frozen coffee! We like using whipped cream, a dusting of cocoa powder, and a ladyfinger to top ours. You can also use chocolate shavings or crumbled ladyfingers to top your frozen coffee.
Hope you love this Tiramisu Frozen Coffee as much as we do. Because of our mutual coffee obsession, I’m always enjoying my coffee creations with my husband. Who do you enjoy your coffee with?
Tiramisu Frozen Coffee
- 3/4 cup double-strength Dunkin Donuts coffee chilled (I used dark roast)
- 1/2 cup milk (I used whole milk)
- 2 tablespoons chocolate syrup
- 2 tablespoons marscapone cheese
- 4 ladyfinger cookies
- 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 2 cups ice
- whipped cream, cocoa powder, 1 extra ladyfinger for topping (optional)
- Brew your Dunkin Donuts coffee at double-strength by using 2x the grounds but only 1x of the water. Once it's done brewing, transfer to a container and place in the freezer to cool down. It may take up to an hour to cool it down so plan accordingly. Warning - if you use hot coffee for this drink, it will melt the ice and result in an iced coffee instead of a frozen coffee.
- Add cold coffee, milk, chocolate syrup, marscapone cheese, ladyfingers, sugar, almond extract, and ice to a blender. Blend on high until completely blended.
- Drizzle 2 glasses with more chocolate syrup. Pour drinks into glasses. Top with whipped cream and dust with cocoa powder. Place 1/2 ladyfinger on top for garnish. Serve immediately.

Also, when I make stong, strong coffee, I just make it on the stove in a good sized kettle. Water, bring to a boil, remove from heat and add about 1 cup or so of coffee, place back onto burner, turn heat down and simmer until it looks about the way you want it. We actually call this “campfire coffee” because that’s the way we make coffee when we’re out tenting.
I tried making double=strength coffee in my Cuisinart coffee maker and it made a huge mess because the water could not/would not drain through the paper filter fast enough.
Otherwise, this is a pretty good recipe and the more chocolate, the better, too. I mean who can say no to chocolate, right?!
Wow! This looks incredible! I am going to give this a try this weekend. I will likely use whatever coffee I have here though. I assume it works well with decaf and non-decaf?
Yup! Works with any brewed coffee you use!
OMG this is like the ultimate dessert! Looks so good, I love coffee and tiramisu. perfection!
Thanks for sharing! How far in advance can I make it?
This looks amazing! What a fun treat to make for a friend when hosting! Which lady fingers brand is best?

Hi Sharon! I’m tooling around the internet saying hello to other bloggers attending EFC next week. Whaaat? Next week?!?! I’m SO not ready.
Tiramisu is my favorite dessert and these look so delicious. Totally worth the sugar crash and burn.

So . . . I’ll be making this for sure when the weather warms up here. How yummy! Thanks for the recipe. P.S. The presentation was just as good as the drink looks! I need some mason jars with handles!
No problem! I actually got those jars from Publix too! They’re from Libbey and located in the aisle with other glassware and serveware. But you can also find them on Amazon 🙂
Oh my gosh! Coffee with mascarpone and YUM! I was ho hum about coffee until Ihad to give it up when I was pregnant and now that I’m a new Mom I’m ALL about it. This sounds like something I could even get my black coffee only husband on board with 🙂
Haha my husband loves his coffee black too and I only like cream in mine. This drink was perfect for us because we don’t love overly sweet coffee drinks. I think you’re husband will end up liking it too!
This looks and sounds amazing. I’ve never made my own frozen coffee!!
