Dalgona Coffee


  • 1 tbsp instant coffee
  • 1 tbsp sugar substitute
  • 1 tbsp hot water
  • 1/2 cup half & half mixed with 1/4 cup water OR 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream mixed with 1/2 cup water
  • 6 ice cubes
  • Optional: 1 tbsp sugar substitute


Using a metal whisk, coffee frother, or mixer, whip instant coffee, sugar substitute and water until stiff peaks form. The mixture should be golden brown, almost carmel colored. I have used erythritol or a combination of allulose and Splenda in the whip. In a glass, mix half & half or heavy whipping cream with water. Dalgona coffee is traditionally only mildly sweet, but I have a sweet tooth, so I add an extra tablespoon of sugar substitute directly to my creamy base. Add ice and top with fluffy coffee foam. Give the coffee a gentle stir and enjoy!
