Guess what? ONLY 3 INGREDIENTS. Guess what else? Yep…I am really not a coffee drinker….BUT…Dalgona Coffee…you are something else!— What started as a Tik Tok trend has now exploded all over the internet as the It-Drink of the moment. Is it worth the hype? Only one way to find out…!
If you’ve got instant coffee, sugar (any kind!), and hot water on hand, you can make this. It’ll go by faster if you have a hand mixer, but a humble regular whisk (like my one), one powerful arm, and a good dose of patience and endurance will get you there too—just make sure you’re ready to feel the burn in your triceps and biceps but you’ll be rewarded with a nice tall glass of cold, creamy coffee that’s sweetened just right.
2 tbsp of sugar (any, I used coconut)
2 tbsp of instant coffee
2 tbsp of hot water
Ice, for serving
Milk, for serving (I used almond milk but you can use any milk you have to hand)
- In a medium bowl, combine your sugar, instant coffee, and boiling water. Vigorously whisk until mixture turns silky smooth and shiny, then continue whisking until it thickens and holds its lofty, foamy shape.
- Fill your glass 3/4 of the way full with ice and milk, then dollop and swirl the whipped coffee mixture on top, mixing before drinking, if desired. ENJOY!
-For the chocolate verion, simply whisk in 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder and do the same as above.
