Dalgona coffee, also known as Whipped coffee, is the frothiest drink one can ever have! The best thing about this coffee is that it requires only four ingredients and gets ready in 5 minutes using a hand mixer. And yes, it is your choice to make it hot or cold.
What is Whipped Coffee?
Dalgona Coffee is very trendy in South Korea. It is also popular in Greece, where it is called Frappe Coffee and in Pakistan, where it is called Phitti Hui Coffee (Beaten coffee). To make it, things you need to have are instant coffee, granulated sugar, water, and milk.
The liquid will go from liquid to thick and creamy in minutes!
Ingredients Required (for one serving)
- One tablespoon sugar
- One tablespoon hot water
- One tablespoon instant coffee
- Milk and ice to serve
How to Make Whipped Coffee?
Grab a bowl and add 1 to 2 tablespoons each of instant coffee, water, and granulated sugar. One tablespoon of each ingredient is ideal for making one serving. But if you want to make more cups of whipped coffee, you can do so by doubling or tripling the recipe. When you first mix all the ingredients, the mixture will look like a concentration of instant coffee.
Don’t lose your heart there, whisk it using a spoon or hand mixer. In minutes, its consistency will go from liquid dark to light and frothy. Keep on whisking until you reach a point where the color starts to change, almost looking like peanut butter. You will know when you are done (there will be peaks on your whisk).
That is the only major task of making whipped coffee – everything from this point onwards is quite simple. Once the mixture is ready, grab a coffee mug or a glass, put a couple of ice cubes in it, and add water or milk (your preference). Spoon the frothy mixture over milk or water, give it a little stir, and your Dalgona coffee is ready!
Tips for Making Whipped Coffee
- Although hot water is not necessary, you can use it to make everything much easier. Also, it will work faster, and the mixture will be ready in no time.
- The whipped coffee’s video that went viral on TikTok was made by whisking with a spoon. But you can use a hand mixer to make the process convenient and faster. Both a hand mixer and milk frother will work best here.
- Use a bowl to mix the ingredients, not a mug or jar, because whipped coffee gets fluffy and bubbly as you whisk.
Can I make it without sugar?
Although you can skip the sugar and the mixture will still whip up, the results might not be as fluffier. However, you can use a substitute for granulated sugar for best results.
Can I use regular ground coffee?
No, you cannot. The reason is that whipped coffee doesn’t work with ground coffee because it needs to be brewed first. Therefore, you have to use instant coffee.
Do I Serve it hot or cold?
Serve it hot or cold, use ice or milk, with or without ice – your choice!
How long does it take to make Whipped Coffee?
It depends on what you use to whip your mixture. If you are using your hand, then it will take 5 to 20 minutes and require a lot of patience. However, if you have a hand mixer or milk frother at home, then you can prepare your Dalgona coffee within 30 seconds or max 1 minute.
Can I store it?
If you have made some extra, then don’t worry! It won’t go to waste as you can store it in the fridge for up to 5 days. And when you feel like drinking whipped coffee again, simply beat it again to make it frothier
