We had to make Whipped Coffee (Dalgona Coffee) Recipe after all the rage! Super fun to whip it up together, so fluffy, easy to make, and takes about 5 minutes with a hand mixer. Have fancy coffee in the comfort of your home. Taking your coffee game into a whole other level!

Whipped coffee rage started on TikTok where it originally got viral and now its all over. We wanted to test it out and see what the rage is all about and wow is it good! It only needs 3 ingredients to make with equal parts of instant coffee, granulated sugar, and hot or boiling water. We have made this Whipped coffee recipe using both granulated sugar and tried a healthier version using maple syrup to see what the difference is. Using granulated sugar will make the whipped coffee froth lighter in color and stays fluffy longer and even for hours. The fluffy coffee does dissolve quicker using maple syrup and would have to be served immediately but it is a healthier alternative to using sugar.

Questions about whipped coffee

We have some of your questions answered. If we missed any, leave us a comment in the comment section below.

What is Whipped coffee

Whipped coffee is a more common name that has been used on TikTok for Dalgona Coffee which is what it’s actually called. It originated in South Korea but also popular in other countries like Greece where its called Frappe Coffee or India where it is referred to as beaten coffee. Many other cultures know of this “whipped Coffee” but recently became popular over TikTok and its now all the rage.

Can you make whipped coffee without sugar

Yes, you can. We actually tested this and it works but the froth does not hold for long and it will start dissolving in 2-3 minutes. If you like the froth to linger longer we suggest you use granulated sugar. Any would work if you would like to use brown, cane, or coconut sugar.

What should I use if I don’t have an electric hand mixer

You can still make this whipped coffee if you don’t have an electric hand mixer. You can use a hand frother or hand whisk instead. The electric hand mixer will help it froth/whip mich faster and will take about 5 minutes or so. We used a hand mixer once and it took about 12 minutes and a decent arm workout! But it will still work!

Can I serve whipped coffee hot

Whipped coffee can be served both hot and cold. To serve it hot, warm your milk of choice, add in a cup and top with whipped coffee using a spoon. To serve it cold, add ice into a cup, then add any milk of choice and spoon in the whipped coffee. It is best to mix in the coffee with the milk for the best result.

Substitutes and tips

  • For Vegan option, use non-dairy milk like coconut or almond milk.
  • Serve hot or cold
  • 1 tablespoon of each ingredient will make one cup/ one serving. So 4 tablespoons will make 4 servings
  • Sugars that can be used to make this whipped coffee recipe are white, brown, cane, or coconut. So long as it is granulated sugar to allow the froth to last longer. Monkfruit sugar works as well.
  • You may use maple syrup as we did for a healthier alternative, but the fluff won’t last for hours like it would using sugar and you need to serve immediately.
  • You have to use instant coffee and unfortunately, other forms won’t work.
  • Vanilla extract is optional.
  • Use an electric mixer, hand mixer, or frother
  • If using maple syrup serve immediately. If using granulated sugar you may save the whipped coffee in the fridge for a few hours Until ready to serve.
