Dalgona Coffee

Looking for a breakfast/brunch drink that will add that WOW factor? Not only will this impress the most skeptical of your guests, but it’s so delicious, they’ll never realize it was actually very easy to put together!

A few things to remember:
1. You must use instant coffee. Fresh coffee grounds don’t produce the same results.
2. Many people have had success with sugar substitutes, so don’t be afraid to experiment!
3. You must use very hot water to fully dissolve the coffee crystals. We had excellent success using our electric tea kettle!

NOTE: We highly recommend using a stand or handheld mixer for this one. The magic comes from aerating through vigorous whipping, and doing it manually will be exhausting!

Dalgona Coffee
(Original recipe: Jessica In the Kitchen)

2 tablespoons instant coffee (we used O Organics from Safeway)
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 tablespoons boiling water
A pinch of cinnamon
1 C milk of your choice (we used 2%)

Combine the coffee, sugar and boiling water in a bowl and stir until coffee is dissolved.

Whip the entire mixture on high for about 2 minutes. Be sure to scrape down the sides to fully combine and whip everything, if necessary.

Taste your whipped mixture and, if necessary, add more sugar to your taste. NOTE: It’ll be very strong! The idea is to make a whipped coffee concentrate that you will dilute into milk.

To serve, pour 1 cup of milk into a pretty glass. Trust me, you’re going to want to show this drink off! Spoon a generous amount of whipped coffee on top of the milk. How much depends on how strong you like your coffee.

To drink, use a spoon or a straw to stir your whipped coffee into the milk, creating a creamy, smooth coffee drink!

NOTE: this works to make a cold or hot drink! Simply add ice cubes or even heat your milk to your liking before adding the whipped coffee on top.

For a bonus flavor boost, add your favorite sweet seasoning mix, such as apple or pumpkin pie spice. We even tried the Buttery Cinnamon Roll and Chocolate Donut mixes from Flavor God. DELICIOUS!
