INGREDIENTS

    • 2 tablespoons Instant coffee
    • 2 tablespoons Sugar
    • 2 tablespoons Hot water
    • 1/2 cup (120ml) Milk of your choice
    • 2-3 Ice cubes

DIRECTIONS

1. In a large mixing bowl place coffee, sugar and hot water (1:1:1 ratio).

2. Using a hand mixer or electric mixer, whisk until thick and creamy.

3. Fill only 3/4 of a cup with cold milk and add ice cubes.

4. Top it up with foamy whipped coffee. Mix well before drink. Enjoy!

Notes:

  • Do I have to use sugar? The sugar helps the coffee whip to a fluffy and stable texture that holds its shape for a while. You can reduce sugar amount, but I’m not sure it will be so fluffy. If you’re really sensitive to sugar, you can reduce it down, just know that your coffee won’t be as fluffy.
  • What kind of milk to use: You can use cow’s milk, dairy free milk such as almond milk, oat milk or any other kind of milk that you prefer.
  • Can I make Dalgona coffee without electric mixer? Yes, you can whip the coffee using a regular whisk, it may take a little bit more time, but it absolutely possible.

    We used an immersion blender with this, and it came out more as syrup than the beautiful foam. Did we not do it long enough, or is it recommended to use a mixer instead?

    It needs the whisk not the flat blade of the blender. You can use a hand mixer, the kitchen aid mixer.

    I used maple sugar and an immersion blender and it came out foamy and delicious. I just had to tilt the immersion blender a little not flat

    If you're thinking of using this as a mousse or dessert-y element like I was, know that it tastes *really strongly of coffee and needs to be mixed with the milk.
