Quick Recipe Notes and tips
- To prevent a clumpy residue after whipping, mix the sugar and coffee with a fork before adding the water.
- Be patient while you whip. It may seem like it’s not getting there but it does before you realize it.
- I like to use Decaffeinated Instant coffee to reduce the caffeine load per serving.
- Use your favorite milk of choice even nut milk.
- If your are living a sugar free or keto or low carb lifestyle, you can swap out the sugar for a low carb sweetener like Lakanto.
- Use a hand mixer or an immersion blender. If you use your hands it will take a pretty long arm workout to whip this up to the required stiff consistency.

My Honest Review of this viral whipped coffee.
First off, though I love a hint of coffee flavor in my desserts especially chocolate desserts and cookies, I am not a huge coffee fan so I found the Diagona coffee flavor too intense.
It was less intense when divided this recipe among 3 to 4 people over a 10 oz glass of milk each. I also lpnfind that it works perfectly for me with my coffee ice cream and milkshake.
