REVIEW: Dunkin’ Coconutmilk Iced Latte

Dunkin Coconutmilk Iced Latte Cup

What is Dunkin’s Coconutmilk Iced Latte?

Summer’s just about here, so why not try brightening up your morning latte with a hint of the tropics?

How is it?

Well, I certainly didn’t feel like I was on a tropical vacation because this might be the worst possible coffee order at Dunkin.

That might seem hyperbolic with the endless amounts of combinations on their extensive menu, but I don’t think I’ve ever had such a… let’s say, “incomplete” iced coffee drink.

I didn’t get any sweetener or flavor add-ons because I wanted to review the Coconutmilk Iced Latte in its true form, and I’m here to warn you against making the same mistake.

I’ve gone this long in life without ever using coconutmilk as a coffee creamer, and I was excited at the prospect. I guess I just expected so much more.

Coconutmilk doesn’t work as a latte milk; it’s just way too thin. I’m not looking for a milkshake here, but I still expect a latte to be creamier than my usual cold brew. I’d say the only thing worse would be an unsweetened skim milk latte, but the coconut finish actually detracted from the coffee flavor too.

Honestly, this tasted like coffee-flavored coconut milk more than a coconutmilk based coffee – if that makes sense? It was just water with a distant taste of coconut, and an even more distant hint of coffee.

Anything else you need to know?

Here’s the weird thing, I’m a big coconut fan.

I frequently order a cold brew with oat milk and a shot of coconut. Those flavor shots (not to be confused with flavor swirls) add just a tiny hint of additional flavor and very little sweetness, but I like that order so much more than this. I guess I can chalk it up to being mostly coffee with a thicker milk. Oddly, I think I like the fake coconut flavor better than the authentic too.

With all this said, this latte is probably salvageable. I never get sugar in my coffee, but it definitely would have pepped this up. I can see a flavor swirl of mocha improving it a ton as well. I bet the chocolate would pair nicely with the nuttiness of the coconut and possibly wake the coffee flavor up a little bit too. I loved Dunkin’s Samoa iced coffee in the past, so why not add a swirl of mocha AND caramel? Go (coco)nuts. It’s only 100 more calories. I might actually do this.


Despite pretty much hating this latte, I do like that Dunkin’ has added the option of using coconutmilk, and I intend to give it another try in a cold brew or iced coffee.

If you feel so inclined to order this specific latte, just heed my advice and sweeten it up. I want your morning to be as bright as possible!

  1. I’m so glad you did this review because I was legit interested in trying this but this sounds awful. The one near me did a samoa latte and yeah coconut is top tier with coffee in my opinion :D.

  2. While I realize it’s notably different:
    I recently had one of their new Coconut Refreshers in the Purple Pomegranate flavor, and it was quite tasty. I fully plan to try their other two CR offerings: Golden Peach and Pink Strawberry.

  3. I tried it too but I added a mocha swirl so it was like a mounds bar. Improved it tremendously

  4. Just purchased this coffee this morning and commented with my sister. I googled the latte and I came across your review, couldn’t agree more!!

  5. your review is the reason why I went out immediately and purchased this drink… It is now my new favorite! Coffees and lattes and their purest forms were never supposed to be loaded up with 70 g of sugar and 50 g of carbohydrates… At that point it’s not a coffee or a latte any longer… This is the ideal drink for someone who still wants a latte with a hint of flavor from the coconut milk without gaining 5 lbs from the sugar and carb count…This is an excellent drink for those who are diabetic and miss the days of being able to go and have their flavored coffees/lattes… Just because it wasn’t the right drink for you doesn’t mean it’s not the right drink for someone else!! A good reviewer would have looked at all aspects of what this drink has to offer… you sir did not!

  6. I always order this drink and it’s actually delicious to me. I suggest you give it one more chance. I order mine with 3 coconut shots and 3 Stevia and it’s awesome. Taste super good in my opinion. I just love it. I suggest you try it like that and you won’t be disappointed. And you should also try it with some whipped cream on top and little bit of cinnamon sugar as well, you won’t regret it…it taste delicious.???

    1. Your way I
      ps the calories. Lol those extra coconut shots and cinnamon sugar defeats the low calorie option and eliminates your stevia no calories. Lol
