If you’re like me, you’ve seen all the rage for whipped coffee (also called dalgona) all over Facebook, TikTok, and Instagram. So after seeing so many fall in love with it over and over again, I knew it was time to try it in my own kitchen!

It’s so easy… here’s all you need…
How to Make Whipped Coffee
For the full recipe ingredients and instructions, you’ll find the free printable recipe card at the bottom of this post. However, I’d love to walk you through the step-by-step process with images so you can grab more helpful tips along the way!
When making whipped coffee, just remember 2+2+2 and that will help a lot!
To make the meringue-like topping, you’ll only need:
- 2 tablespoons instant coffee
- 2 tablespoons white sugar
- 2 tablespoons water
Then, you’ll fill a coffee cup up about 3/4 of the way with milk. I used whole milk because that’s what we had on hand, but almond, skim or whatever milk you use should be just fine!
Whipped Coffee Topping
In a small bowl, mix together the coffee, sugar, and water using a hand mixer or hand blender, mix together for about 4-7 minutes. (The longer, the thicker it will get.)
If you want to do it by hand, you can use a whisk, but this may take a bit longer, and I heard that if you only use half of the water at first when hand whisking, it gives it a bit of a jump-start for the thickening process. After about a minute or two of mixing, add in the remaining tablespoon of water and mix until desired consistency!
Ready to Serve!
Once the topping is to the desired consistency, spoon out the coffee topping on to the cup of milk and enjoy, or use a spoon to blend the topping in with the milk for a creamy coffee consistency!
NOTE: If you don’t want to use all of the topping for one cup, simply save it in a container for the next day!
Hot or Cold?
I have only had this as cold as the milk provides, but you can also serve it over ice or even enjoy it warm!
- 2 tbsp instant coffee
- 2 tbsp white sugar
- 2 tbsp water
- 6 oz. milk or amount desired
- In a small bowl, mix together the instant coffee, sugar and water for about 4-7 seconds, or until peaks are formed. (Or until you've reached your desired consistency.)
- In the coffee cup that you plan to drink out of, pour milk in to cup, about 3/4 of the way full.
- Spoon on the amount of whipped topping you prefer (I used all of it!).
- Enjoy as is, or take a spoon and gently mix the topping in with the milk to create a creamy coffee beverage, and serve!

Nope. You can even cut this recipe in half if you like, or make extra and save it to have whipped coffee a couple of days in a row!
You can, but it’s not idea. Filtering out the grounds, may be a pain, it may take longer to get the texture of the topping you like and it may not have as strong of a flavor.
You bet! Warm-up your milk before adding on the topping. If you want to warm up the whipped topping, carefully do so as it may lose it’s texture.
