Whipped Coffee (Dalgona Coffee)

So I have been inundated with photos of this coffee from across every form of social media, YouTube, Pinterest, people texting me shit from TikTok and any way else you can get in contact me. Sure this coffee looks very nice in photos, but is it any good? I did look around for a recipe for this, which wasn’t hard at all to be honest considering its such an IN thing at the moment.

When looking over the recipe I found a few things wrong with it, One being that it has sugar in it. Blasphemy!! Sorry for people who do have sugar in their coffee/tea I like mine without sugar. Thats my tell if the drink is shit Ill put sugar in it or there is an impostor posing as me. I did read though that you have to have sugar in it in order for the coffee to whip and stay whipped. Another thing I saw was that its really an iced coffee. Yeah I like my home made iced coffees occasionally but I thought it was weird all this hub bub about whats basically an iced coffee. So what I will do is make one according to the recipe and see how that tastes and then Ill make my own version of it and see if it still holds up.



  • 2 tablespoons instant coffee
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar you can use 
  • 2 tablespoons boiling water
  • 1 cup milk of choice 
  • Add all the coffee, sugar and boiling water in a bowl/ cup (depending on the size of your mixer). Whip with hand mixer or if you have crazy strength by hand.
  • Whip the entire mixture for about 2 minutes. Make sure you everything is whipped.
  • Add the coffee to a tall glass of your favourite milk. Any milk; cow, soy milk, almond and oat milk. Add a few ice cubes, then the milk, then spoon the whipped coffee on top.
  • Using your spoon or straw, stir to swirl it into your milk.

Ok I admit I was a bit of a stuck up bitch. It wasn’t that bad. I used full cream milk just to see if it tasted a bit better and yeah honestly it tasted like a bought iced coffee. Not the coffee milkshakes that everyone says is coffee (thats what I call a lot of iced coffees) , ITS NOT COFFEE! Its a milkshake with coffee flavour. But no this actually was really really nice and refreshing I will be for sure having this in the warmer months. I do admit it was a little sweet but it wasn’t as sweet as I thought it would be because the coffee to sugar ratios were the same to they evened out.

Half way through this little experiment I actually found out this can be made as a warmer drink. I was looking online just with further research. I didn’t try the warmed up version only because everyone I have seen has been making the cold version so I thought I’d stick to what the crowd is doing…..

So I thought now I’ll try say my own version for this caffeine beverage. Its only a few minor tweaks to the drink. Why did I need to do some minor changes to this drink might you ask? Because I bloody feel like it and I tend to drink coffee from a Nespresso machine rather than instant…….Thats right I like my coffee fancy!!!

USING ESPRESSO PODS: Ok I thought this would be supper easy just use and espresso pod and just blend it without sugar. NOPE it didn’t work at all it obviously needed sugar in order to make it get to that whipped point. So you need sugar to do this.

MAKING A BOOZY VERSION: This one I also tried with the espresso pods but this time I remembered to mix it with sugar. Well the second time I tried it. The first time I just mixed Baileys and coffee together and was putting it onto of a glass of milk. The coffee mixture didn’t whip, it just frothed. So I tried again this time with a better result. I made the Baileys and milk mixture seperate in the glass and whipped the coffee and sugar and placed on top. So with this one I used a few guinea pigs (because obviously I can’t drink booze still) so I tried this out on my husband, my mum and a number of friends via ZOOM. The friends were actually really keen to try it out since a lot of them are home schooling their kids.



  • 1 espresso pod
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar you can use 
  • 1 cup milk of choice 
  • 1 Shot Baileys Irish Cream
  • Make espresso with pod in large mug (big enough to use mixer) and add sugar. Whip mixture with beater until it reaches smooth whipped consistency
  • In serving glass add 1 cup of milk of your choice with the shot of Baileys ( honestly if you want to add more booze go nuts) and add some ice.
  • Top milk with the coffee mixture and stir together.
  • Enjoy being caffeinated and buzzed

So I gave this coffee a whirl, thanks TIKTOK and all everyone else whose posted it on the internet. I have to say though I have a slight issue with TIKTOK, ok Im glad everyone is finding a creative outlet but really a lot of the videos are of people dancing the exact same as the Metrosexuals (do we remember them?) that I used to encounter in clubs back when I was 18. These dances just look like they are possessed. I am impressed when I see people who obviously have a background in dance using the app to showcase their talent along with people who are showing off actual talent. But these 12 year old girls dressing in clothes that barely cover anything just waving their arms around I JUST DONT GET IT! Why is it entertaining? Half of those types of videos (That get loads of views) they are barely doing the minimum how is that entertaining?! Anyway Ive had my little rant, I need to get this antichrist out of me ASAP I’m starting to turn into an old cranky woman.

IM OUT!!!!!
