I know everyone loves hot chocolate in a cold winter evening but, unfortunately no matter how much we want to sip on it; we cannot in summers scorching heat! That’s when I thought about this cold nutella coco! I love everything nutella and if it’s a drink even better for this weather. This cold nutella coco is so chocolaty and indulgent and perfect for summers. I love sipping on it and start my day with this cold nutella coco on the days I want to avoid my cold coffee.
If you want, you can even pop some marshmallows on top and have that cozy vibe as we have with hot chocolate in winter season. This cold nutella coco has limited ingredients which can be found in your kitchen and it is super easy to make!
INGREDIENTS USED IN THIS COLD NUTELLA COCO
It is a milk based beverage and has 1 + ¼ cups of milk. 1 cup is added directly to the saucepan and the other ¼ cup milk is incorporated with other ingredients to form slurry. If you want to make for more people, you can simply double the entire recipe and you will be sorted! I generally use full cream milk as they make my drinks very rich and creamy. If you want you can use toned or cow milk as well.
I am adding two tablespoons of caster sugar. If you want you can also substitute it with brown sugar and you can also reduce the quantity of two tablespoons to one tablespoon, according to your taste preference!
- CORN FLOUR
For the thickening agent I am using corn flour which is cooked with other ingredients on the stove and make this cold nutella coco nice and thick! Because of corn flour only, this cold nutella coco gets its velvety texture.
- COCOA POWDER
To make this cold nutella coco have a nice chocolate flavor, I have added 1 tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder. Generally I use hershys and cadbury’s cocoa powder as they have a great aroma and are easily available everywhere; if you have some other cocoa powder you can use that too.
3 tablespoons of nutella is also added in this cold nutella cocoa, this also adds flavor and texture to this drink and make it really delicious! If you want it to have less nutella flavor, you can make it 2 tablespoons instead of 3!
- ICE CUBES
It is a cold nutella coco so while serving it has to have ice cubes! I love my drinks to stay cold while I am sipping on them so I am adding ice cubes, if you don’t want it to be that cold; you can skip it too.
TIPS AND TRICKS TO MAKE THIS COLD NUTELLA COCO
I recommend using full fat milk to make this nutella cold coco for the perfect consistency.
Do not forget to make slurry out of corn flour, milk and cocoa powder before adding it to the hot milk and sugar mixture as to avoid lumpy drink.
Make sure to cool the cold nutella coco at room temperature properly before adding loads of ice while serving!
For the garnish, you can add marshmallows, grated dark chocolate or even dust cocoa powder.
You can even serve this cold nutella coco with vanilla ice-cream or whipped cream and a generous drizzle of nutella on it.
If this cold nutella coco gets lumpy, you can always sieve it before serving.
Make sure you cook it till it get thickens and let the corn flour gets cooked properly too.
EQUIPMENTS USED TO MAKE COLD NUTELLA COCO
The kind of equipment you use when you’re baking makes a huge difference to the end result! I would recommend you to use good quality mixing bowls and other equipment so that your cold nutella coco comes out delicious.
I have used Borosil Induction for making my nutella coco. It makes cooking hassle free and quick.
