Dutch Bros Cocomo

Dutch Bros Cocomo is a flavorful combination of espresso, chocolate milk, and coconut syrup. You can get it as a freeze, hot or cold.(1)

It might seem strange at first, but chocolate and coconut work perfectly, as well as chocolate and coffee. This drink fuses them together into a delicious blend.

How Many Calories Is In A Dutch Bros Cocomo?

The calorie count in a Cocomo depends on the size and the style you choose. It’s available iced, blended, or hot, but each version comes at a different caloric value.

A medium-sized hot Cocomo has 540 calories, while the same size iced is 420 calories. The blended Cocomo is the most caloric at 730 per medium cup.

  • Medium (Hot): 540 cals per 16 fl oz
  • Medium (Iced): 420 cals per 24 fl oz
  • Medium (Blended): 720 cals per 24 fl oz

What Does It Taste & Look Like?

How to Make Cocomo

The Cocomo is a lot like Mocha with a coconut twist. As I sip, it reminds me of a Bounty candy bar, like rich milk chocolate with a sweet coconut flavor.

The iced or blended version is the way to go, as it’s more refreshing. But if you’re a fan of comforting drinks, make it hot.


At first glance, the Cocomo looks just like an iced mocha. You can add a splash of coconut milk to give a lighter color and intensify the coconut flavor.

You can use this recipe to make the blended version too. Just blend up all the same ingredients. To amp up the decadence, add whipped cream on top!

The Cocomo on its own is not dairy-free. The base is mocha which is made with Dutch’s own chocolate milk.

You can ask the bro-ista to suggest alternative milk if that’s an option. I found that oat milk is a good substitute.

To replace their chocolate milk, the bro-ista will use the alt-milk of your choice and add chocolate syrup.

If you have a dairy sensitivity, please let the barista know. They will try to prevent cross-contamination.

Vegan Version

Again, the base of the Cocomo is chocolate milk which contains dairy. So, the Cocomo is not vegan.

However, you can still ask the bro-ista if they can make it vegan.

They will substitute the chocolate milk for plant-based milk and chocolate syrup. I recommend ordering the oat milk Cocomo for the closest to the real thing.

Once you get used to the coconut chocolate flavor, there’s no turning back. A whole new world of coconut-infused coffee is ahead of you. 

We’ve listed some other Dutch Bros coffees that come with a suitable amount of tropical flavor.

1. The Bob

The Bob

The Bob, also known as The Bob Marley, was once a secret menu item but quickly made its way to the regular menu. And it truly packs some Jamaican flavors.

This drink includes chocolate mocha, coconut, and banana. It’s available in several styles, hot, iced, blended, or breve.

The White Angel is made with white coffee, where the beans are roasted a bit differently. It’s mixed with a blend of syrups: vanilla, white chocolate, and coconut syrup.

  • White Coffee
  • Vanilla Syrup
  • Coconut Syrup
  • White Chocolate Sauce

3. Islander

The Islander also features a mocha base, completed with chocolate macadamia nut, vanilla, and coconut syrup. And it can be ordered sugar-free, unlike most coconut coffees.

You can make a switch and have it done the Kick-Me mix, which is breve, instead of the mocha base.

Dutch Bros Islander (Ingredients):

  • Chocolate Mocha
  • Vanilla Syrup
  • Coconut Syrup
  • Chocolate Macadamia Nut Syrup

4. German Chocolate

German Mocha

The German Chocolate is made with mocha as the base drink. Then it’s mixed with caramel, dark chocolate, and coconut syrup. It’s a very rich taste that you can make at home too.

In an 8 oz cup of milk, add 1 tablespoon each of Torani dark chocolate sauce, crème caramel, and coconut syrup.

  • Chocolate Mocha
  • Caramel Syrup
  • Coconut Syrup
  • Dark Chocolate

5. Coconut Cold Brew Mocha

The coconut cold brew mocha is like a lighter version of a Cocomo. There’s less chocolate milk, and there’s cold brew instead of espresso. Coconut syrup is added like in the Cocomo.

It’s a good choice if you want to tone down the calories. You can switch to sugar-free syrup for an even lighter drink. 

Coconut Cold Brew Mocha (Ingredients):

  • Chocolate Mocha
  • Cold Brew
  • Coconut Syrup

6. The Fleck

The Fleck

The Fleck is among the most popular secret menu items.

Here’s how to order it: ask for the breve base, add white chocolate, hazelnut, and coconut syrup.

We prefer it hot, as the taste lingers more towards a comforting winter drink, not a fruity one. Add whipped cream to make it even more indulging.
