You could also make a “grown-up” version of this recipe and substitute coffee liqueur for the coffee syrup, but only if you’re feeling a little bit risky!
But back to the regular Milky Way cappuccino – the recipe starts out with the basic cappuccino formula, and then we introduce additional goodies to create a whole new cappuccino experience. We know you’re very excited to get started with your own Milky Way cappuccino, so here is the quick and easy recipe so you can get going!

READY IN: 10 minutes

MAKES: 1 serving


2  teaspoons instant coffee
¼ cup boiling filtered water
2 tablespoons chocolate syrup
2 tablespoons caramel syrup
½ cup milk
2  tablespoons whipped cream
A Pinch of cocoa powder


Microwave-safe measuring cup
Mug (for serving)


Combine the instant coffee and the boiling filtered water in a coffee mug. Mix well until the coffee is completely dissolved.
Place the milk in your microwave-safe measuring cup and microwave uncovered, on high, for about one minute. The milk will heat up and start to form small bubbles around the edge of the cup.
Remove the measuring cup from the microwave, and pour half the milk into your blender. Blend on high for about 3 minutes, until the milk turns to froth.
In your serving mug, combine the espresso with chocolate syrup and caramel syrup. Mix in the remaining steamed milk and add the milky foam. Top with the whipped cream and sprinkle with the cocoa powder, and your Milky Way cappuccino is complete!
