This Strawberry Milk version of the oh-so-popular Dalgona drinks is a must-try!
Deliciousness comin’ in berry cold!
Just when we thought the internet couldn’t make anything better than the viral whipped iced coffee that Lina made last year, they’ve stunned us yet again with this oh-so-delicious fruity drink! This Strawberry milk drink idea may just be even more decadent than the last one.
Three words… Whipped. Strawberry. Milk. 😍🍓🥛
And yes, it’s just as amazing as it looks and sounds.
Dalgona coffee is inspired by the South Korean Dalgona candy and traditionally involves whipping instant coffee, granulated sugar, and water into a rich, gooey solid-looking mixture that almost looks like toffee.
However, this time around, we’re whipping up some refreshing strawberry milk goodness (also seen on Delish). This recipe also does not use coffee, so it’s a fun one to make with the kiddos! Ever since I made it the first time, my kids can’t get enough. It’s easy enough that I can whip up a batch quickly for a fun afternoon treat during the back-to-school season.
Stetson shared how to make this easy recipe in the video below!

To make the creamy, thick, and fluffy strawberry topping, you only need some heavy cream and a bit of strawberry Nesquik… that’s it – a childhood favorite I can taste already! 😋
Then you mix both ingredients with either a hand mixer or opt for a whisk, depending on whether you want the full-body workout or the easier and quicker route. Either way, it’s going to be a delicious strawberry milk creation! 🤤
While the original recipe we saw called for less heavy cream and Nesquik, we didn’t find it to be sufficient enough for even one drink, so we think we perfected it with our ratios. But who knows, maybe we have portion distortion?! 🤷♀️
Tips for making the best Whipped Strawberry Milk:
- We had some questions about using fresh strawberries with a little sugar instead. However, we tried this and found that the strawberries produced so much liquid that we had to add in a ton of extra heavy whipping cream which pretty much covered up the strawberry flavor. Perhaps using strawberries as a garnish might be a better option, while still incorporating them into the recipe, or go for frozen strawberries instead.
- If preferred, you can consider grabbing a bottle of Nesquik Strawberry Syrup to use instead of using the powder. I found it to be a richer, thicker flavor!
- Be sure to taste this as you’re making it to determine just how berrylicious you want it to be. Make the recipe as below, then taste, add in additional powder or syrup if you desire a bolder flavor. You’ll need to whip it a little longer each time you add more so that it is fully incorporated.
- Not a fan of the strawberry flavor? Try this recipe and use chocolate Nesquik powder or syrup!
- If you’re like me and can’t get enough of the whip, then try layering it in your glass by putting a layer of whip on the bottom, milk in the middle, and more whip on the top!

A creamy and refreshing iced drink that you won't believe only has three ingredients!

Combine strawberry Nesquik and heavy cream into a small bowl. Use a mixer or whisk to whip the mixture. Mix for 1-2 minutes until it becomes thick and fluffy.

This is a fun drink idea if you’re looking for something super yummy and refreshing!
Here’s what my teammate Chelsey had to say about this whipped strawberry milk recipe:
“This recipe is so easy to make and it’s delicious too! We’re a house divided in that I loved making it with the syrup and my husband and daughter preferred the powder! Plus, it’s definitely something you could mix up and try using chocolate syrup instead!
It literally takes just minutes to make and it would be easy to make a big batch of it and serve it to friends and family. As readers mentioned before, you could also use the whipped part as a topping for angel food cake, fruits, and so much more. The recipe could really have endless uses!”
Make the most of strawberry season and try this yummy strawberry banana smoothie next!
There coffee version was pretty good. The 2nd time I made it I put it at the bottom and poured the milk on top and it made the consistency better.
That’s a good idea!! I’m going to try that next time! Thanks
I love the whipped coffee but I was thinking it might be better with the coffee on the bottom. Thanks!
I’m gonna try it with chocolate nesquik powder. Not a fan of strawberry.
I am going to try it with chocolate too. I think my kids will love this as a snack.
Just added these to my Sunday grocery delivery – how could you go wrong? Looks yummy! Many thanks.
Now I want to try it with hot cocoa mix. I have a few fancy mixes leftover from winter.
So, this is basically flavored whipped cream?
Poured over milk
Yes, that was my thought too. Dalgona has no whipping cream, just instant coffee, sugar and water, whipped up. This is just flavored whipped cream…but probably good!
If you have a Pampered Chef whipped cream maker it whips up in 10 seconds.
I would make this for my daughter as a dessert. Between the Nesquick and heavy cream it has too much sugar/fat/calories to be called a “drink” in my house (same with milk shakes and Frappuccinos).
Derby digs his drinks!
I’m going to try this recipe using Carnation Instant Breakfast in the packets. I have several flavors to choose from so it could be quite interesting 🤔 I’m pretty sure it would work being that “instant” is the key word? Has anyone tried this? The possibilities seem endless👏👏 Thanks for all the fabulous ideas everyone!!
Now that would sound like a good healthy idea? Wonder if it would work?
I’m going to try it! I have Carnation Instant Breakfast packets too! I hope it works! If it doesn’t, I’ll let you know!
I also tried it with the low calorie lemonade packet and it tasted like a lemon creamsicle!!! Tried it
We were not a fan of this! I nor my 3 grandkids like this and they love strawberry mil! Heavy Cream is too expensive to give this a second try.
try sea salt coffee whip with milk really good. I just make 1 today really good. strong coffee or regular it your own taste. but I like strong coffee. 2 table spoon and add sugar your own taste, tiny a pinch of sea salt. blended mix until thick foam. when get a glass of milk 3/4 cup. added your coffee whip on the top. really good. I will do Green tea next time, green tea need cream cheese.
I appreciate the recipe share. It sounded soooo good. Unfortunately, it fell flat. It’s just flavored whipped cream on milk. We added twice the flavored powder and still barely tasted strawberries.
Try this… and I do believe it is Keto for those who care.
1/2 can light coconut milk
5-6 frozen strawberries
1TBS of sweetener of your choice.
Blend together and enjoy. It is so flavorful and refreshing! We eat it instead of milk shakes.
I wonder about using freeze-dried strawberries since fresh produce too much juice?
I just came to suggest that. I substituted these in frosting recipes to ramp up the strawberry flavor and color without adding moisture and suffering from diluted flavor. Think it would be worth trying here.
