When I posted a photo of this drink on my Instagram stories last week I got a lot of questions about it. I somehow assumed everyone would know what Dalgona Coffee is, because I’ve been seeing it everywhere. But apparently it’s not that well-known yet. That’s why I’m sharing the recipe on here too!
One of the best things about this social distancing is how creative people get! I love seeing everyone make and bake things. The funny thing about Instagram is how there are always certain trends. Like in the last few weeks I’ve seen people go nuts about coffee, sour dough bread and bananabread. I love it!
What do you need for Dalgona Coffee:
- Instant coffee
- Caster sugar
- Hot water
- (Coconut) milk
- Optional: ice
This drink is a cold iced-coffee kind of drink. And making it is super easy! I usually make quite a lot because you can easily keep it in the refrigerator for a few days. That way you don’t have to make the coffee cream every time you want a drink.
Mix equal amounts of instant coffee, sugar and hot water and whip it until you have a thick, smooth cream. You can mix it by hand, but that’ll take you a while so I used an electric handmixer.
Put some ice-cold milk in a tall glass, I used Alpro’s Cold Pressed Coconut. If you want it even colder, you can put some icecubes in it. And scoop the coffee cream on top of it.
There you have it! An amazing, homemade iced coffee that looks great too. I usually don’t drink coffee, more like never actually, but you can make this iced coffee drink as strong (or weak in my case) as you like. And the coconut gives it an amazing tropical taste.
