Using a Nespresso

Espresso is in an Iced White Mocha and the easiest way to make espresso at home is in a Nespresso.

My Splurge Nespresso Pick
It’s a splurge but worth it. This Nespresso machine only makes espresso and comes with a built-in steam wand to froth milk for lattes.

1 shot of espresso = 1 Nespresso espresso capsule

In this grande sized drink, there are 2 shots of espresso, which means you’ll need 2 Nespresso espresso capsules or 1 double espresso capsule.

You can use any of your favorite Nespresso espresso capsules or Starbucks for Nespresso capsules.

Starbucks and Nespresso partnered to create a Starbucks line of capsules and there are 3 espresso capsules: Starbucks Espresso Roast, Decaf Espresso Roast, or Blonde Espresso Roast.

  • If you don’t have white chocolate sauce, replace it with sweetened condensed milk.
  • The whipped cream is flavored with vanilla but if you don’t have vanilla syrup, you can sweeten the heavy cream with 2 teaspoons of sugar.

    Almost identical to Starbucks! I used Torani white chocolate sauce and it was great! I just wish I had taken the “shake ten times” more seriously because the first one exploded all over my kitchen from the pressure in the shaker😅 SHAKE ONLY TEN TIMES, NOT A SUGGESTION!
