The magic whipped coffee recipe everyone is talking about (video)

This coffee recipe has taken the internet by storm lately. ‘Quarantine coffee’, or ‘dalgona coffee’ has been all over Tik Tok and social media, and for a good reason.

It’s rich, creamy and made from just a few ingredients. I’m usually an espresso drinker, but this has become my new go-to afternoon pick me up. Thanks, internet!

NOTE: You *have to* use instant coffee, otherwise the recipe doesn’t work. I have seen some fail videos where people tried to make this using ground coffee, so please don’t try doing that.

  • 1 tbsp instant coffee powder
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1.5 tbsp water
  • 1 cup of plant milk
  • 1/2 cup of ice cubes (optional)


  1. In a bowl, whisk together the coffee powder, sugar and water until it forms stiff peaks (an electric whisk or milk frother works best here).
  2. Add your plant milk and ice to a cup.
  3. Top the milk and ice with the coffee foam and enjoy!
