The dalgona whipped coffee is all the rage right now, and if you’ve tried making it yourself, you’ll know – it tastes really good!!
For me though, I’ve made it a few times and I haven’t really liked how sweet it is so I tried making a less sweet, healthier version of the whipped coffee and it turned out SO TASTY! I bought the products at local stores near where I’m living, but I’ll link some options below if you want to try it yourself.

WHIPPED COFFEE ORIGINS (SKIP FOR DIY)
The Dalgona Coffee or ‘Whipped Coffee’ as it’s more commonly known has exploded in popularity last month on social media. TikTok especially, there’s just been so many funny and creative videos of this drink. Perhaps we can thank the current lockdown for this, but whatever the reason you may have seen a few DIY versions of this popular drink on your social media feeds.
Before I get into showing you how to make it for yourself and giving you a dairy-free plant-based version(I know right?), I thought some of you may be wondering where in the heck this drink came from and who started the trend?!
The Dalgona Coffee has origins in the far east in Pakistan and India!
Believe it or not, the trend can be traced to a Korean TV show called Pyunstorang. An actor on the show actually tried the drink and named it ‘Dalgona’ for how the drink resembled a traditional Korean sponge candy! Weird right?
With that said let’s make the drink!
WHAT YOU’LL NEED ||
+ OAT MILK
+ HAND MIXER or FROTHER
+ STRAW (optional)
WHIPPED COFFEE RECIPE
2 Tbsp Instant Coffee
2 Tbsp Water (lukewarm water is fine)
1 Tbsp Coconut Sugar
In a bowl, add the instant coffee, water, and coconut sugar
Mix the coffee blend together preferably with a hand mixer. You can use a fork, spoon or whisk (even a frother could work) but it will take longer to whip. The whipping should only take around 5 min with a hand mixer. You’ll know it’s ready when it starts to look like the consistency of whipped cream.
Next, addd ice and your choice of dairy-free milk to your cup – I filled mine 3/4 full. Organic Oatly was the milk I chose, but I’ve done this with the Barista Edition Oatly before and it made it extra creamy and smooth so if I’d recommend that version too!
Stir together and enjoy it!
It’s super easy and very tasty – and better for you than the other main recipe that’s floating around.
Hope you enjoy 🙂
