Missing your usual stop at the local coffee shop? Intrigued by the latest drink to trend on social media? See how to make whipped coffee and enjoy a tasty coffee drink at home. It’s easier than you might think!
Have you been suffering from coffee-shop withdrawal? Fancy coffee drinks are a treat for many of us and with so many shops closed or offering limited menus, you might be dreaming of a tasty beverage. So, as often happens, this drink has gained recent popularity after trending on social media. From what I can trace, it specifically first popped up in this form on TikTok and then spread from there.
This is the simplest version we could find and when we recreated it here, we sampled the whipped coffee first. WOW! STRONG! SWEET! Might usher you into sugar shock.
Fear not, though. This drink gets better. The premise is actually that the whipped coffee topping is to TOP a glass of milk. You can substitute a nut milk if you prefer.
Once we let the whipped coffee topping jive with the milk on the bottom, the taste was much better, much smoother and, dare I say it? Good!
We were trying to nail down exactly what the taste reminded us of and we settled on something similar to an iced caramel macchiato. You’ll have to try it and tell us what you think.
This super easy recipe is ready in minutes. Ready? Let’s dive right in! (Pssst… want to kick it up a notch? Try this OREO Cookies ‘n Cream Whipped Coffee recipe next!)
How to Make Whipped Coffee (Easy Dalgona Coffee Recipe)
Easy Whipped Coffee Recipe
- hand mixer
- two 16 oz glasses or mason jars
- 1/4 c instant coffee
- 1/4 c hot water
- 1/4 c sugar
- ice (enough to fill half of each glass)
- 16 oz milk 8 oz per serving
- You will use equal parts of all three ingredients, just as an FYI. We used 1/4 cup increments of each ingredient and got 2 servings, each served in a 16 oz mason jar.
- Combine instant coffee, sugar and water in a mixing bowl.
- Use a hand mixer to whip the ingredients together until fluffy (peaks should appear in the "fluff.")
- Add ice to mason jar.
- Pour milk over ice.
- Top with whipped coffee mixture.
- Mix it ALL UP!! Don't drink it until you give it a stir - you really want the coffee whip to intertwine with the milk, otherwise it will taste very strong and bitter.
- Enjoy immediately.
If you decide to give this new trendy drink a try, let me know what you think. Again, we were NOT fans at first (when just sampling the whipped coffee portion). So don’t be discouraged if you lick the beater (come on, you know you might) and it tastes like super sweet instant coffee. LOL – because that’s exactly what IT IS!
Try to get past that taste and add your ice to your class (we filled ours about halfway with ice). Then fill your cup with some milk!
Now top the milk with that whipped coffee froth and let the whipped topping mix with the milk. When I say MIX IT UP, I truly mean it. Mix it ALL UP!! Don’t drink it until you give it a stir – you really want the coffee whip to intertwine with the milk, otherwise it will taste very strong and bitter. Now, give it a sip. When the milk hits the sweet topping, it transforms the drink into more of an iced macchiato taste in our opinion.
So let us know – like it? Or nah? It has a unique taste, that’s for sure. It’s also super DUPER easy to make and very very inexpensive to make.
