Servings: 3


  • Electric hand mixer


Dalgona Coffee

  • 2 tablespoons instant coffee
  • 2 tablespoons sugar* white granulated or coconut sugar
  • 2 tablespoons hot water boiling hot water
  • ice cubes
  • milk of your choice

Whipped Matcha

  • 1/4 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 large egg whites**
  • 3 teaspoons matcha
  • ice cubes
  • milk of your choice


For the Dalgona Coffee

  • Using a large mixing bowl, combine the instant coffee, sugar and hot water. You can either whisk everything together by hand, or use an electric hand mixer. Whisk until all of the ingredients are combined and continue whisking until it develops into a creamy, glossy caramel color and can form soft peaks. If whipping by hand with a whisk, this could take a good 5 to 8 minutes depending on how fast you are whipping.
  • This recipe makes one coffee drink. Place some ice cubes into your desired glass. Pour in your milk of choice and top with the whipped coffee. Feel free to sprinkle on some cocoa powder if desired, stir together and enjoy!

For the Whipped Matcha

  • Make simple syrup: Bring the sugar and the water to a boil over medium to medium-low heat. Stir until all of the sugar is fully dissolved. Lower the heat to low and let sit there for a minute or two, and then turn off the heat.
  • Using an electric hand mixer (you can whisk by hand but will have to do so pretty vigorously if you do this by hand with a whisk), beat the egg whites until they get frothy. With the electric hand mixer still going, slowly pour in the simple syrup and keep whipping until the eggs start to turn white and form soft peaks.
  • Add in the matcha powder and continue to whip on high until all of the matcha is combined (I also used a rubber spatula to scrape the sides of the bowl to incorporate everything) and everything is smooth and creamy. Be careful not to over whip or everything will get runny.
  • Place some ice cubes into your desired glass. Pour in your milk of choice (I love oat milk with this) and top with the whipped matcha. Feel free to sprinkle on some matcha powder if desired, stir together and enjoy! I think this was enough whipped matcha for two drinks.


ADULT/SPIKED DALGONA COFFEE: Follow the same instructions above but use decaf instant coffee and add a splash or 2 of bourbon, dark rum, kahlua, or Irish Whisky to your milk. Mix in the whipped coffee and enjoy!
*Feel free to use less sugar if you'd like. I've seen people just use 1 tablespoon. Adjust to your taste. **If you are uncomfortable working with raw egg whites, see the variations listed below this recipe card.
