Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons instant coffee, (powder or granulated)
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar, white or raw sugar
  • 2 tablespoons boiling water
  • Milk, any milk is fine

Instructions

  • Combine the coffee, sugar and boiling water in a bowl. Stir with a spoon to combine and dissolve the sugar.
  • Beat with a whisk or hand mixer to whip coffee, occasionally scraping down the sides of the bowl, until foamy and thick.
  • To serve, fill a glass 3/4 of the way up with milk will ice. Spoon the whipped coffee on top. Stir vigorously through the milk and enjoy!

Notes

MANUAL WHISK: takes a good 8-15 minutes, depending on how thick you want it.
HAND BEATER: only takes about 3-5 minutes.
Thick whipped coffee tastes the best and is less bitter when compared with a watery mixture. Beat until stiff peaks form when lifting your beater or whisk.
USE WHAT TYPE OF COFFEE
Instant coffee works best, just make sure it's not a dark roast or it may come out too bitter. If you don't have instant, you can use instant espresso powder or fresh brewed espresso (2 tablespoons espresso to 1 tablespoon white sugar, no boiling water needed, per person). 
DO NOT use fresh ground coffee beans. It doesn't work.
CAN I MAKE WHIPPED COFFEE WITHOUT SUGAR?
Yes and no. The coffee will whip on its own (albeit not as airy or fluffy), but it doesn't last long as the best results happen with white granulated sugar. Raw sugar also works well, but doesn't dissolve like white sugar. Readers have also tried honey and agave with great results.
To make it without sugar, be sure to make it and mix it through your milk right before serving.
WHAT ABOUT SWEETENERS FOR KETO
YES! It works with granulated sweeteners, not liquid. Use Natvia, Swerve or Monk Fruit for best results.
TASTE TEST:
Yes, whipped coffee is strong, but remember it will dilute once mixed with milk. You can add an extra tablespoon of sugar into your mixture for a sweeter coffee, but the general rule of thumb is a 1:1:1 ratio of coffee, sugar and boiling water.
For a stronger coffee, use a small glass and less milk. For a weaker coffee, use a larger glass and add more milk.
OPTIONAL ADD INS:
A drop of pure vanilla extract
A drop of caramel flavour
1 tablespoon hot chocolate drink mix (NOT cocoa powder)
2 teaspoons powdered creamer
HOW TO STORE DALGONA WHIPPED COFFEE
Whipped coffee lasts fluffy for quite a few hours in the refrigerator. If you've made too much or you'd like to make a big batch of whipped coffee to save time in the mornings: refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 1 week. You may need to mix it though for a couple of seconds just before serving as liquid coffee settles on the bottom of the container.
