Happy Sunday, friends! I shared this video for Whipped Coffee on my Facebook page and since I’m getting so many questions about it – I made a blog post so I can answer all your questions! The recipe is below, along with all the ways you can make it! 

YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED

What kind of sugar can you use to make whipped coffee?

You should use granulated sugar. You can use white sugar, brown sugar, raw sugar, coconut sugar.

Can I make whipped coffee without sugar?

Yes you can…BUT! I tested this and while it does fluff up in the same amount of time, it doesn’t stay fluffy as long as the sugar version. The sugar version stays fluffy for hours, this stays as fluffy for about 2 minutes, then begins to slowly dissolve for another 5 minutes until it’s liquid again. I would recommend making it right before you’re about to add it to your milk! Also, bear in mind that it’s a very strong unsweetened mixture! You should make this with sugar if you want the results in the photo and the ultimate fluffiness!

Can you use monkfruit sweetener or sweetener replacements to make whipped coffee?

Yes you can! As long as they are granulated. P.S. – you can get 15% off next order of monkfruit sweetener if you use my code VEGANLOVE20.

I don’t have a hand mixer. How else can I make whipped coffee?

You can make whipped coffee using a stand mixer, a hand frother or hand whisk and by hand! Making it by hand takes the longest (about 20 minutes), and I would recommend using a whisk and not a spoon because it takes so long with a spoon and your arms will definitely be tired! While some have had success doing it by hand, I haven’t tried it, so I can’t recommend it! You do want to ensure you’re doing it in a bowl and not a mug or a jar, so that enough air is whipped into it!

Can I use hot or cold milk?

You can use any one! I love cold coffee so I make an iced coffee with mine. But you can definitely make it hot – it works the same! So if you wanted it hot, you would heat up your milk, then stir it into the hot milk. 

What is whipped coffee?!

So whipped coffee is kind of a Tiktok name for this kind of coffee. It’s actually called Dalgona Coffee (Korean coffee) and I have learned since that it’s also known as Frappe Coffee (Greek), Beaten Coffee (Indian) and is known in several other cultures (let me know and I’ll add them here!). I first saw it on Tiktok (@imhannahcho) a few days ago!!

Which instant coffee do you use?!

I used Nescafé Classic (the double filter, full flavour one)! Yes, it works with decaf coffee too!! This will not work the same with brewed coffee.

What else can I use this for/what should I have whipped coffee with?

So it makes this incredible drink, but you can use it in so many other ways! Here are some yummy ways to enjoy it:

Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons instant coffee
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar you can use
  • 2 tablespoons boiling water
  • a pinch of cinnamon optional
  • 1 cup milk of choice I've tried it with soy milk, almond and oat milk
Instructions

Instructions

  • Add all the coffee, sugar and boiling water in a bowl (you can easily double or triple this recipe). Using a hand mixer or stand mixer and whip on one of the higher speeds.
  • Whip the entire mixture for about 2 minutes. Scrape down the sides and whip any bits that didn't get whipped.
  • Taste (it'll be very strong! But of course diluted with your milk) and add more sugar IF desired. I've seen some people add another tablespoon of sugar, but it was fine for me. Remember it'll be diluted with the milk!
  • Add the coffee to a tall glass (about 8 ounces/1 cup) of your favourite milk. I've tried it with soy milk, almond and oat milk. If you're doing iced, add a few ice cubes, then the milk, then spoon the whipped coffee on top. If using hot, just add it to the glass.
  • Using your spoon or straw, stir vigorously to swirl it into your milk.
  • Sip and enjoy! Also take a photo 😉

NOTES

WAYS TO MAKE WHIPPED COFFEE

  1. You can make coffee with a hand mixer or stand mixer (I found these are the easiest ways).
  2. You *can* make it by hand but I don't recommend doing it that way if you have other tools. It takes at least 20 minutes by hand! That being said, that's how many people make it on Tiktok.
  3. If you have a hand frother or a hand whisk, you 100% can use that to make it!
  4. Ask me - and I'll include here if you can make it any other way.
  5. Tip: I used the hot water straight from my Keurig. But you can also boil the water first!

    How do I store it? Refrigerator or outside on the counter? (AC is always on 😉)?? Thanks

    • Gavin | Jessica in the Kitchen says:

      Hi Yael! Thank you so much for reading! You can definitely store it in the refrigerator. It keeps very well for up to 2 days. If it starts to slightly separate on day 2 a quick whip is all you need. I hope this helps!

    Tried this recipe with a little variation.
    I substituted one tablespoon of coffee with organic cocoa and mmmm, delicious!
    If I could give this more than 5 stars I would!
