Keyword: coffee, dalgona
Servings: 2



  • 2 tbspn Instant Coffee (Whatever you enjoy)
  • 2 tbspn Sugar Brown sugar tastes great. Adjust as required.
  • 2 tbspn Hot water
  • 1 tbspn Hot Chocolate (optional)
  • 1 tbspn Chocolate ice-cream (optional)


  • Add 2 tablespoons of instant coffee, 2 tablespoons of sugar and 2 tablespoons of hot water into a bowl. The amounts can indeed be halved or doubled to whatever amount you desire as long as they’re all equal measurements.
  • Using a hand mixer (for ease), let the machine do its job until the texture changes! This can also be done using a milk frother, stand mixer, whisk or spatula/spoon, however, since it’d take much longer a mixer is preferable.
  • If you want to get in an arm exercise then a whisk is definitely great, you’ll need to hand whisk for 20 minutes, just be prepared for pain afterwards aha! The mixture will turn into a fluffy, paste-like texture from all the whipping.
  • Once the mixture is up to standards,  add the Dalgona into the glass or you can add your milk first 😉 (if you’re not big on coffee add less). You can then either opt for a cold drink with ice (add into a glass now) or go for a nice hot Dalgona latte, warm up your milk. If you’d like to go for more of a chocolatey vibe you can add in a big spoon of hot chocolate powder.
  • Have a taste of it and see if it’s good! You can add extra sugar if desired, but remember it will be diluted with milk. 
  • If you’re going for a mocha frappe add in a big spoon of chocolate ice-cream.
  • If you didn't add the milk previously add it in now. 
  • Once your milk and Dalgona is in the glass you can mix
  • Take some pictures for the gram and enjoy. Whichever one you opt for is delicious and will stop you missing your favourite coffee shop.
