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! 


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:

How to Make Whipped Coffee (Dalgona Coffee)

Whipped Coffee is the BEST thing ever! It's a fluffy and incredibly delicious way to make your morning coffee, and takes only 5 minutes with a hand mixer! You can make it hot or cold!

Prep Time 5 minutes

Total Time 5 minutes
Servings 1 or 2 servings
Course Breakfast
Cuisine Universal
Keyword coffee, dalgona coffee, vegan, whipped coffee
  • 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


  • 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 😉




  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!

  2. Ngan says:

    Hi Jessi, May I know if I can use stevie instead of sugar for this coffee? Will it become fluffy after mixing? Thank you

    • Jessica says:

      Hey! I haven’t tried it, but someone on FB said they did and it worked for them!! So can’t guarantee but definitely give it a try, and let me know if it works for you please!

    What ingredient in the instant coffee helps make it whip? I want to see if it works with something like Hot Cocoa Mix.

      It’s doesn’t work quite the same with hot cocoa powder, or matcha green tea powder. Those mixtures will thicken a bit, but they won’t get fluffy like with the instant coffee.

  4. Amy says:

    Hi there! This looks fab! I don’t have a hand mixer or stand up mixer but I have a Vitamix… I’m wondering if that might work? Thank you!

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Amy,

      Going to try this in the morning and let you know!

        This was delicious, quick, and easy! I will definitely make this again. So yummy.

        • Gavin | Jessica in the Kitchen says:

          Thank you so much Christina! We’re happy it was easy to follow and make.

    • Jessica says:

      Hey Amy,

      So I finally got to try this out, and while it does froth a little, it doesn’t seem to give similar results at all. I would recommend giving it a try to see if it works for you! Otherwise, you can use a hand whisk! I hope that helps!

    is it possible to do the same with regular brewed coffee rather than instant?
