We recently had been hearing a lot about Dalgona Coffee, so we decided to give it a try and make some at home. I had never heard of it before, but I really enjoy coffee, plus this is an easy recipe. We even had all the ingredients at home already.
This recipe requires a few easy ingredients! You can use regular or decaf versions of instant coffee.
To make the whipped foam, use equal parts of:
~ Instant Coffee
~ Hot water
I have heard you can mix this by hand, which I would recommend only if you don’t have a hand mixer. We tried that on our first attempt and it was a little frustrating. We also tried a milk frother, which I use for so many things – however, it did not work well for this.
I have a small Braun hand mixer, which works perfectly. We mix it right in a measuring cup. You could probably do it in a bowl, but I wanted something with higher sides so as not to make a big mess if it splatters.
Start by mixing your hot water, sugar, and instant coffee, until blended (at a lower speed).
Then, continue at a higher speed until the mixture thickens. The whole process only takes a few minutes.
To prepare your beverage, you will need:
~ milk (approx. 1/2 cup)
~ ice (optional)
We like to use an organic milk like Organic Valley.
Simply spoon the whipped coffee on top of your milk.
Enjoy your drink! I either swirl the coffee with the milk, or drink with a straw, mixing as I go.
