What is Dalgona Coffee?
Dalgona coffee also known as whipped coffee is just that, whipped coffee. It a beverage made by whopping equal amounts of instant coffee, sugar and hot or warm water till it thickens and forms stiff peaks like whipped cream. Then it is served over hot or cold milk.
Dalgona coffee has been around in Indian but is called Beaten coffee. It is made the same way and served the same way although sometimes milk is poured over the whipped coffee instead of vice versa.
Like Pancake Cereal, Dalgona Coffee was trending on the web during the lock down. It was one of the recipes that went viral during that period thanks to Tiktok. It was also named the ‘quarantine drink’.
The name Dalgona was derived from a Korean sweet that’s made from brown sugar and baking soda.

Quick Recipe Notes and Tips
- For a more intense coffee flavored ice cream use two tablespoon each of instant coffee, sugar and water to make your dalgona coffee.
- You can decide to use your dalgona coffee as a topping for your vanilla Ice cream instead of mixing it in to the whole ice cream like l did.
- If you are looking to make mocha ice cream, mix dalgona coffee with chocolate ice cream.
- Make sure to whip the dalgona coffee to stiff peaks.
- When you mix the dalgona coffee with the sweetened condensed milk, cover with cling film to prevent a skin from forming while while whipping the heavy cream. Or you can decide to whip the cream first.
- Because the dalgona coffee has water in it, the ice cream may freeze more solid than my other no churn ice cream recipes. Not to worry, it gets scoopable in less than 3 minutes.
- Use decaffeinated coffee if you want to share this with the kids.
