Dalgona Coffee

Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes

Dalgona Coffee is the light-as-air instant whipped coffee treat you can make at home. No special equipment needed.


  • 2 Tbsp hot water
  • 2 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 2 Tbsp instant coffee granules
  • 8 oz milk


  1. Combine water, sugar, and coffee in a large mixing bowl.   
  2. Whisk with an electric mixer on high speed until the mixture becomes thick and fluffy, 5-7 minutes.  It will be a light caramel color and should form soft peaks.  It should be similar in consistency to whipped cream.
  3. Pour your milk in a glass, it can be hot or iced, whichever you prefer.  It is delicious either way! 
  4. Top with whipped coffee. Stir to combine whipped coffee and milk.


  • You can serve Dalgona Coffee over cold milk or hot milk. It's delicious both ways! Non dairy milk works well for this recipe, too, if you're avoiding dairy.
  • If it seems like the mixture will never "whip", don't give up! It takes a few minutes of constant beating. I promise you the time is worth it.
  • Use a large mixing bowl to prevent splattering. I started with the mixer on low speed and gradually increased it as it thickened to keep splattering to a minimum.
  • No electric mixer? You can also make this by hand with a whisk. Just be prepared for a major arm workout! It'll also take much longer to achieve the desired texture.
  • Make ahead Dalgona coffee: Save time by preparing your coffee for the week all at once. This coffee keeps in the fridge for a week in a tupperware container or in the freezer for up to a month. If separation occurs, just give it a quick stir and it'll be ready to drink!
  • Low Calorie- use this delicious Monkfruit Sweetener in place of sugar.
