How to Make Whipped Coffee

Being stuck indoors is difficult but one way to prevent boredom during COVID quarantine is experimenting with delicious recipes.

Stopping at Starbucks or Tim Hortons for a daily caffeine fix is no longer an option so many of us are saving money and getting creative with our home brews.

One of the most popular drinks on social media is whipped coffee - made famous by TikTok. The rich, fluffy texture takes your morning routine to a whole new level and you only need 3 simple ingredients.

This decadent drink is sweet, creamy and satisfying - the perfect pick-me-up for a busy workday.

Whipped coffee is actually called Dalgona Coffee (Korea coffee) and a few other countries have similar versions.


*2 Tablespoons of instant coffee – I used Nescafe Rich Hazelnut. If you prefer a milder flavor use one and a half tablespoons.

* 1 Tablespoon of flavored coffee cream/whitener (optional) – I used International Delight Hazelnut because it makes the coffee taste like a yummy Starbucks drink. I don’t usually add flavoring because it isn’t 100% natural but my husband purchased this accidentally and it tastes great with the recipe.

* Unsweetened almond milk or milk of your choice (cashew, oat, coconut, soy etc).

*2 Tablespoons of brown sugar (you can also use white sugar or organic coconut sugar for less sweetness). The recipe will work with half the amount of sugar but it won't stay fluffy for long. 

*2 Tablespoons boiling water.


1. In a clean mixing bowl add the coffee, sugar and hot water.

2. Using a hand mixer or whisk, whip the coffee until it becomes a thick, luscious cream. This may take anywhere from 5 - 15 minutes depending on what tool you use.

I used a manual whisk (the longest method) and it was a pretty good bicep workout. The quicker you mix the faster it transforms.

3. Pour milk in a glass and add 2-3 ice cubes.

4. Add flavored coffee cream to taste (optional).

5. Scoop the whipped coffee on top and stir it into the milk.

Hazelnut Iced Coffee
Another drink I’ve been enjoying is hazelnut iced coffee. It is similar to whipped coffee except whisking is not required and the flavor is not as strong. It reminds me of a Tim Horton’s frothy ice cappuccino with much less sugar.


1. In a NutriBullet or blender add unsweetened almond milk or milk of your choice. I use a little bit less than 2 cups. 

2. Add 1 - 1 ½ tablespoon of instant hazelnut coffee (depending on how strong you like it). French vanilla also tastes great.

3. 2 Tablespoon of International Delight hazelnut creamer/whitener for sweetness.

4. 3-4 Ice cubes

5. Blend until ice is crushed.

7. Drizzle with melted chocolate or top with chocolate shavings (optional).
