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.

Frequently asked questions:

WHAT IS DALGONA COFFEE?

Dalgona Coffee (whipped coffee) is a cold latte drink that comes with a velvety smooth and sweet coffee foam on top. The combination of cold milk and the bittersweet coffee is absolutely delicious. Dalgona coffee is inspired by the South Korean dalgona candy, a toffee sponge that resembles the creamy dollop that tops the ice coffee. This coffee has been viral in Korea during quarantine time, then it got viral on TikTok and now it is very trendy all over the internet.

HOW TO DRINK DALGONA COFFEE?

After whipping the coffee, whisk it with a good amount of milk (any milk would work). Make sure yuo are whisking well and not leaving the whipped part at the top, otherwise the coffee will be bitter. 

CAN DALGONA COFFEE BE MADE WITHOUT SUGAR?

To make the best dalgona coffee yo can use granulated white sugar, brown sugar, raw sugar, coconut sugar. If you prefer a sugar-free version, you can omit the sugar, the coffee will still whip up, but the results will not be as fluffy. So, I would not recommend skipping sugar completely, but maybe using just onr tablespoon instead. 

WHAT COFFEE IS THE BEST FOR DALGONA COFFEE?

The best coffee for frothy dalgona coffee is granulated instant coffee. Some recipes say that you can use powdered inatant coffee or instant espresso powdered, I find that granulated instant coffee gives the best results and would not recommend using any other coffee. 

HOT MILK OR COLD MILK?

To make ehipped dalgona coffee you can use any milk that you like, hot or cold. They both work the same. If you use cold milk, I would recommend adding ice.

    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.
