  • 2 Tbsp Instant Coffee
  • 2 Tbsp Granulated Sugar, cane, white, brown, or coconut we used maple syrup *see notes*
  • 2 Tbsp Hot or Boiling Water
  • 1/2 Tsp Vanilla Extract optional


  • In a mixing bowl, add the instant coffee, Sugar (we used maple syrup), vanilla and hot/boiling water.
  • Whisk on medium-high for 5-8 minutes, or until super fluffy and caramel looking in color.
  • To assemble the iced coffee, add ice and milk of choice to a cup.
  • Top with whipped coffee and serve immediately. Enjoy!


  • Vegan options use non-dairy milk like coconut or almond milk
  • Sugars that can be used are white, brown, cane, or coconut. So long as it is granulated sugar to allow the froth to last longer
  • You may use maple syrup as we did for a healthier alternative, but the fluff won't last for hours like using sugar would and you need to serve immediately.
  • You have to use instant coffee and unfortunately, other forms won't work.
  • Vanilla extract is optional.
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.
