We Tried This Viral Whipped Instant Coffee Hack!
If you’re coffee-obsessed like me, check out this popular drink idea to make at home!
Dalgona coffee is trending on the social media platform TikTok, and it’s the creamiest iced coffee drink I’ve ever had and so tasty. When my tween daughter came downstairs the other day asking if we had any instant coffee to make one, I was highly skeptical and assumed her iced coffee would not taste great.
By the way, if you’re a visual learner, be sure to watch Stetson’s video below. He just started up his very own quarantine classes! 🙌

I’m here to say this idea is DELICIOUS and easy!
According to the LATimes.com, Dalgona coffee is inspired by the South Korean dalgona candy, and involves whipping instant coffee, granulated sugar and water into a rich gooey solid looking mixture that almost looks like toffee. It starts out black and then when whipped changes color to a satisfying and yummy mixture.
You can use a whisk like they do in this viral YouTube video from the Bustle.com, or you can use an electric hand mixer like we did to make it much faster! Then you pour it over iced milk, and mix it all together. We also added vanilla extract, and it was so tasty.
The result is a super creamy, rich iced coffee drink that is so fun and easy to make at home!
Hip Recipe Tips:
- This drink is highly adaptable to taste, so you can use a sugar, sugar substitute, milk, or coffee creamer of choice. For a low carb version, try out monk fruit sweetener and almond milk!
- Like these pretty drinking glasses? They are actually stemless wine glasses from Walmart, and I love them!
