What Is Whipped Coffee?
Whipped coffee, also known as dalgona coffee, is exactly what it sounds like. Whipped coffee is a Korean coffee beverage that has been circulating for a while and gained a lot of popularity.
This cute little drink is a glass of iced milk with fluffy coffee plopped on top.
It’s a relatively new drink, which has been made mainstream over the 2020 quarantine. It’s even been nicknamed “Quarantine coffee.”

If that sounds good to you, great! Grab your ingredients and such so you can get started.
To make whipped coffee, you’ll need hot water, instant coffee powder, sugar, ice, and milk. As for dishes and equipment, you’ll want to grab a bowl, a spoon, a mug or glass to drink from, and either a hand whisk or electric mixer.

How to Make Whipped Coffee at Home
It’s time to get to the main event: the actual recipe!
Take two tablespoons of hot water, sugar, and the instant coffee powder, placing it all in a bowl.
Take either your electric or hand whisk, and beat the mixture until it’s light and fluffy. We recommend an electric mixer unless you’re looking to get an arm workout in!

How to make vegan whipped coffee
If you’re vegan but still want to give whipped coffee a try, don’t despair!
Making vegan whipped coffee is just as easy as making non-vegan whipped coffee.
You’ll need either almond, coconut, or oak milk, instant coffee, boiling water, and vegan granulated sugar. As for your gear, you need the same as the previous recipe.
Place 1/4 cup of instant coffee and 3 tablespoons of vegan sugar in a bowl, and mix. Then pour in 1/4 cup of boiling water, and whisk it all together until it’s thick and fluffy.
Once your fluff is finished, pour yourself a glass of milk and place a dollop of your whipped coffee on top.
Then simply mix it and enjoy!
