Recipe: Dalgona Coffee

Dalgona Coffee

Listen, Dalgona coffee is all the rage right now. I didn't start it but I am making it everyday and I'm happy to pass on the recipe for you to enjoy too.

It's super simple but it's kind of an arm workout and that's ok. We could all use an extra arm workout right now.

So what is Dalgona coffee, you ask? I don't have all the research behind it and honestly, I don't think you want me to waste my time researching it because you don't want to read that much anyways. It's basically a whipped version of instant coffee. It becomes this thick, delightful topping for you to put on top of your milk, your oat milk or even some horchata.


2tbsp of instant coffee (I use the Sprouts organic kind, however, Pexioto has an instant coffee and they are local. I would use that, if I could get my hands on some.)

2tbsp of sugar

2tbsp of boiling hot water

Mix the instant coffee with the sugar. Boil the water and add to the mixture. Whip the crap out of that mixture by hand for maybe 5 minutes. First it will change to that caramel color and then it will start to thicken up.

You could use a hand mixer but you probably won't get it to that thick consistency you see all over the gram. You'll still get a good mixture, a little more soupy but it'll still taste good.

I've heard mixed reviews of this. If you use a bitter and not that great instant coffee, it will taste bitter.

I like this stuff, and I use this recipe to make two drinks. I add half of the finished topping to a cup of oat milk and stir it up. After I take a beautiful picture of it in a glass of course. Once you've stirred it into your milk of choice, drink it up. Your milk can be hot or cold, totally up to you. I've been drinking it cold because we live n Arizona, so why not. You could even add ice cubes to your milk, if that's something you're into.

So there you have it! Enjoy my friends and cheers to our afternoon Dalgona coffee delight. xoxox
