How to Make Dalgona Coffee

So, what exactly is dalgona coffee, and how do you make this delicious drink with condensed milk?

Dalgona coffee has been all over social media for good reason.

It’s inspired by dalgona, a popular Korean street food snack made of sugar, oil, and baking soda.

It’s a super easy and fun coffee drink to make at home, and it’s absolutely delicious!

Coffee is something I look forward to every morning, and sometimes you just want to spice it up with a little something different, ya know?

Whether you’re looking for some early morning caffeination or a mid-afternoon pick-me-up, this dalgona whipped coffee drink will definitely lift your spirits up!

Here’s how to make dalgona coffee, the amazing whipped coffee drink!

How to make dalgona coffee with condensed milk

For this dalgona coffee recipe, you have to use instant coffee, but you can also substitute it for any instant tea powder.

Nescafé 3-in-one instant coffee packets won’t work, as it’ll cause the mixture to have air bubbles and won’t have the creamy, whipped texture.

Nescafé instant coffee is a great everyday coffee and Nescafé Gold instant coffee is great if you enjoy stronger, bolder flavours.

How to make matcha dalgona with aquafaba

Dalgona coffee may be all the rage on social media, but this vegan matcha dalgona is just as great.

21 Goals to Achieve While I'm 21

I started making dalgona after we ran out of instant coffee, but we’ve really been enjoying it.

I use organic matcha powder from Elan, one of my favourite organic food brands – I also love their organic mango slices!

You can either use aquafaba or egg white to make this recipe, but I’ve only tried it with aquafaba, which is the liquid that comes from cooking chickpeas.

Here’s how to make an aquafaba matcha dalgona with no egg!

Matcha dalgona recipe


  • ½ cup aquafaba (from 1 can of chickpeas)
  • 2 teaspoons matcha powder
  • 3 tablespoons icing sugar
  • 2 cups milk of your choice

Recipe (2 servings)

  1. Drain chickpea water from canned chickpeas into a stand mixer and set aside chickpeas for another use.
  2. Whip chickpea water until it turns into aquafaba, which has a creamy, whipped texture.
  3. Sift in 2 teaspoons of matcha powder to prevent clumps.
  4. Add 3 tablespoons of icing sugar and whip until all the ingredients are mixed together.
  5. Top it on your milk of choice and serve in two glasses!
