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.
- 2 tablespoons instant coffee (I use Nescafé Gold instant coffee or Nescafé instant coffee)
- 2 tablespoons sugar (I use cane sugar)
- 1 tablespoon sweetened condensed milk
- 2 tablespoons water (cold or hot)
- 1 cup milk of your choice
Recipe (1 serving)
- Whip instant coffee, sugar, and water in a stand mixer until it forms a whipped texture.
- Add in condensed milk.
- Top it on your milk of choice and serve!
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.
I started making dalgona after we ran out of instant coffee, but we’ve really been enjoying it.
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!
- 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)
- Drain chickpea water from canned chickpeas into a stand mixer and set aside chickpeas for another use.
- Whip chickpea water until it turns into aquafaba, which has a creamy, whipped texture.
- Sift in 2 teaspoons of matcha powder to prevent clumps.
- Add 3 tablespoons of icing sugar and whip until all the ingredients are mixed together.
- Top it on your milk of choice and serve in two glasses!
