Dalgona, or whipped coffee, is the latest social media sensation. And for good reason, it’s aesthetically pleasing! Not to mention, it’s extremely simple to make. The Korean drink is made by whipping up three ingredients - instant coffee, sugar, and hot water - until it forms a luscious creamy foam that's then dolloped atop your choice of milk. Dalgona resembles an upside-down cappuccino, but instead of frothy milk on top, it's coffee.

Whipped Coffee (also known as Dalgona)
What you need
- 2 tbsp. instant coffee
- 2 tbsp. sugar
- 2 tbsp. hot water
- 1 cup of your favorite Smith Brothers Farms Milk
- Hand mixer or milk frother*
- Medium-sized bowl
*Don't have either? You can use a fork or whisk, but it will take much longer. Some folks have said you need to stir it 400 times! But hey, if you're looking for an arm workout...
Combine the instant coffee, sugar, and hot water in a medium bowl. Using a hand-mixer (or milk frother), whisk until the coffee mixture turns into a thick and fluffy, butterscotch-colored foam. About two to four minutes.
Pour chilled milk into a glass, and spoon the frothy coffee mixture on top. Snap a photo and upload to social media.* Then gently stir the foam and milk until combined. Enjoy!
[Notes: You can enjoy dalgona hot. If desired, simply heat the milk, pour into a heat resistant cup and spoon the coffee mixture on top. Also, feel free to adjust both the sugar and milk amount to your personal preference.]
