Dairy Queen’s “MooLatté ” plus a Moolatte Recipe

Recently I tried one of DQ’s MooLatté.

Dairy Queen and the Moolatte frozen coffee drink

What it is: A frozen coffee drink. MooLatt̩ is made with creamy DQ soft serve, coffee, ice and crowned with whipped topping. They are available in: Mocha, Cappuccino, Caramel and French Vanilla. You can get these in a mega size as well. Called MEGA РMooLatt̩.

Now, I did like it. It is cool and refreshing and though it’s not *bux, it is acceptable in a pinch. I do have one gripe about it though. The name.

As some of you know, there is a word used (not so much these days) to describe a person whose parents are of different color. One white and one African American. It is called Mulatto. Nothing wrong with that in the least but you’d think Dairy Queen could have thought of something more creative and appropriate for a frozen coffee drink’s name. It is somewhat humorous yet at the same time showing a lack of imagination.

Mocha Moolatte is made with vanilla ice cream, cocoa fudge, coffee (concentrate) and then blended with topping (whipped cream) added on top… of course, for caramel, you add caramel. Note: Need a coffee concentrate? Try Nescafe’s concentrates. They have several from regular to flavored. Works very well! I doubt you’ll be able to tell much difference between your mixture and Dairy Queens.

One thought on “Dairy Queen’s “MooLatté ” plus a Moolatte Recipe”

  1. I love Moolatte. French Vanilla is the only one I buy. I really think the “Moo” is in reference to the cow the milk comes from and nothing else. I too think it is a really cute name. It is a wonderful drink and I would love to make it at home.
