1 shot of espresso = 1 Nespresso espresso capsule

To make this TikTok drink, you’ll need 2 Nespresso espresso capsules or 1 double espresso capsule.

You can use any Nespresso capsule you like, but go for the Starbucks Nespresso capsules if you want it to taste as close to Starbucks as possible.

Even though this drink is made with espresso roast at Starbucks, try it with the Starbucks Nespresso Blonde Espresso capsules instead.

The Blonde Espresso capsules are better reviewed and more popular.

Expert Tips

  • If you don’t have a way to make espresso, use instant coffee. Combine 1 tablespoon of instant coffee and ¼ cup hot water to replace the 2 shots of espresso in the recipe.
  • Cold foam can be made using a French press or a handheld milk frother but the French does a better job of creating luscious foam.
  • Cold foam can also be made in an electric milk frother that has a cold foam setting.
  • You can use sweetened condensed milk if you don’t have white chocolate sauce.
  • The vanilla sweet cream cold foam is made using vanilla syrup, but if you don’t have any, sweeten the half & half with 2 teaspoons of sugar.
  • Make homemade vanilla syrup ahead of time and store it in the refrigerator. It’s so easy to make with just 3 ingredients and takes 5 minutes.

Questions You May Have

What’s the difference between Iced White Mocha and Iced White Chocolate Mocha?

They’re the same thing! Iced White Mocha is just a shortened way of saying Iced White Chocolate Mocha.

Can I make this drink using blonde espresso?

Yes! It would technically be an Iced Blonde White Mocha. If you don’t like the strong, bitter taste of coffee but want caffeine, make this drink using blonde espresso, which has a smoother coffee taste but contains more caffeine than drinks made with espresso or dark roast.

How much espresso is in a Starbucks Iced White Mocha?

A tall (12 ounces) is made with just 1 shot of espresso, a grande (16 ounces) has 2 espresso shots, and a venti has 3 espresso shots.
