Whipped Coffee is also called Dalgona Coffee. It is made by whipping instant coffee, water, and sugar until it becomes smooth and creamy. Its served on top of warm or cold milk for a rich coffee drink.
This coffee is TRENDING HOT on social media. It is EVERYWHERE and everyone is making it.
There’s something very satisfying about sitting down with a glass of whipped coffee because it’s comforting but fancy at the same time. And it’s super easy to make.
I’m so excited about this trendy coffee drink that I am making it almost every weekend.
What is whipped coffee?
Although Whipped Coffee trendy right now, it is not a new drink. It’s also called Dalgona coffee which is a Korean beverage made by vigorously whipping together equal parts of instant coffee, granulated sugar, and warm water.
When you whip the three ingredients together, it creates a creamy frothy mixture. It’s also strangely thick and sticky at the same time. It reminds me of meringue.
It is served on top of a glass of warm or iced milk.
What does it taste like?
It tastes delicious! The first time I made this, I didn’t expect to like it, let alone love it!
It’s strong like a very strong coffee or espresso, but also frothy like a frappuccino or latte.
The taste actually mellows as you stir it into the milk. I like mine over a glass of milk with ice. You can also serve it over a glass of warm milk for a cozy coffee drink.
How to make whipped coffee
- Start by adding equal parts of instant coffee, warm water, and sugar to a bowl.
- Set the mixer to medium speed and mix for 5-7 minutes.
- As you mix, the coffee will become thicker and lighter in color.
- Whip it until it is thick and creamy.
- You’ll know it’s ready when it forms stiff peaks.
- Test it, buy just touching the mixture with your finger. If it stands up in little peaks when you touch it, it’s ready.
Krazy Kitchen Mom Tips
- Make a large batch – this recipe makes enough for 1 drink. To double or triple the recipe, click on the servings number in the recipe card and it will automatically give you the exact number of ingredients. Or just use equal parts of instant coffee, sugar, and water.
- Storing – You can store whipped coffee in your refrigerator in an air-tight container for up to one week. I like to make a big batch on the weekend and store it in the refrigerator for my morning coffee on weekdays.
- Freeze it – You can freeze the whipped coffee by placing it in an airtight container for up to one month. It won’t freeze hard. It will still be soft and creamy and tastes especially good on top of cold milk with ice.
Here’s a photo of how I refrigerate it and freeze it using a plastic container with a lid.

- The type of coffee you use matters! You must use Instant Coffe or Instant Coffee crystals for this recipe. Some instant coffee is made from ingredients that really aren’t coffee so make sure the instant coffee you use is coffee.
- Decaf Instant coffeed works too. Yes – you can use decaf instant coffee for this recipe. It works exactly like regular instant coffee.
- When it comes to milk you can use whatever type of milk you’d like. I’ve made it with both almond milk and regular milk and I’ve liked them both.
- Make sure the water is VERY warm but not boiling. I’ve made this with room temperature water and very warm water and the very warm water works better. The mixture turns out with higher peaks.
- I recommend using a hand mixer to make the whipped coffee. If you don’t have a hand mixer, you can use a whisk but be warned, you are going to need some strength because it will take you a lot longer. I have read that some people make this in a blender but I have not tried that yet so I can’t recommend it.
