Cappuccino Dessert Recipe – A sweet and creamy dessert with a hint of coffee and a wonderful whipped texture.

Cappuccino Dessert in cups

This no-bake whipped cappuccino dessert is sinfully good and SO easy to make!

Hi, my people!! *waving* Please, sit down and have a cup of cappuccino in dessert form – you will NOT be disappointed. The taste will remind you of a Tiramisu, and the texture is similar to a mousse dessert.

Cappuccino Dessert Recipe

Anyone wondering why there’s an oreo cookie in there? My 5-year old made me do it. She thought it was a cookie dip and just dug in there like it was her last meal. I decided to try it because, you know, more sugar. And I’ll be darned, but you guyyyys! A cappuccino dessert with a cookie instead of a spoon was a winner!! SO good!

I also think the pictures look better with a cookie in there.

Cappuccino Dessert IN MIXER

Being that it is almost Valentine’s Day, are you waiting for chocolate and flowers ORRRR, are you like me and hoping for  computer/laptop/touchpad/smartphone/what am I missing? Because I serve all of it.

I also deserve a bowl of this cappuccino dessert. One big bowl all to myself.


  1. You will first cream together powdered sugar and cream cheese.
  2. Then add in cocoa powder and cinnamon, followed by milk and espresso granules.
  3. Finally, you will carefully fold in the whipped topping and spoon the creamy mixture into single serving dessert bowls.
  4. Refrigerate for at least one hour, or until ready to serve.

Cappuccino Dessert whipped

You might have noticed that I am a coffee fiend. I like coffee. A lot. It’s the only indulgence we have left! “Don’t eat too much, it’s bad for you… Don’t sleep too much, it’s bad for you… Don’t drink, it’s bad for you…” Geez!! For the love of living, shuddup, experts!

Thank goodness they agree that coffee is good for you.

Cappuccino Dessert served

Go brew a cup and make this dessert, pronto. Make sure you have some cookies sitting around, just in case. Especially some of those Oreos. I dunno… for some reason they just tasted really, really good when I dipped one in here. My 5-year old taught me the trick… she is to blame.

Want to avoid those extra cookie-calories? Grab a spoon.
