🛒 Ingredients

Dalgona coffee is easy to make with simple ingredients.

  • Instant Coffee: Use your favorite brand.
  • Very Hot Water: To dissolve the coffee crystals.
  • Granulated Sugar: Adds the perfect amount of sweetness.
  • Maple Syrup: Provides a delicious fall flavor and yummy aroma.
  • Whole Milk: The rich creamy base of our maple whipped Dalgona coffee.
  • Ice Cubes: For an ice-cold beverage.

🥣 Best Ingredient Swaps

Missing an ingredient for this maple whipped coffee? Don’t put on your shoes and head to the market. Instead, head to your pantry and fridge. Check for these easy ingredient substitutions.

  • Instant Coffee: Pull out the tiny jar of espresso powder often reserved for making tiramisu. It’s much more concentrated than instant coffee, so you’ll want to lessen the amount for this whipped coffee recipe.
  • Granulated Sugar: The best swap is light-brown sugar. But you can also use coconut sugar, cane sugar, or raw sugar.
  • Maple Syrup: Swap with agave nectar plus vanilla extract.
  • Whole Milk: Use any type of milk or cream.

🥛 Recipe Tip: It’s convenient (and money-saving!) to use ingredients you already have on hand. For example, I usually have 2% milk and heavy whipping cream in the fridge. For this maple latte I often combine the two 50/50.

👩🏻‍🍳 Expert Tips

  • Best tip for making whipped coffee: Use very hot water to quickly dissolve the coffee granules. It allows the topping to whip up faster. If hand whisking the mixture, use a large bowl so air can circulate around the topping so it’s light and fluffy.
  • How to know when to stop whipping the topping: When whisking the ingredients together, the color of the mixture will gradually turn from a dark-coffee brown to a golden tone that’s several shades lighter. After further whisking, the topping will look like peanut butter! You’ll know the whipped topping is done after it’s thick enough to form peaks on the whisk, and can hold its shape.
  • You can make whipped coffee without a stand mixer. Make whipped coffee in a blender, in a bowl with a hand mixer (whisk vigorously), or with a milk frother. For a thick topping with a foamy texture, these methods often take about 5 minutes of whipping time.
  • Customize dalgona coffee by adding a touch of seasonal spice to the whipped topping mixture. Try ground cinnamon, apple pie seasoning or pumpkin pie seasoning. You can garnish maple whipped coffee with crumbled cookies or cocoa powder.

📖 Recipe Steps

RECIPE PREP: Microwave water in a heat-safe glass measuring cup. For the maple coffee, we need the water really hot.

  1. Add very hot water, instant coffee and granulated sugar to the bowl of a stand mixer with whisk attachment. Beat ingredients on high speed for about 2 minutes, until mixture is beautifully smooth and holds a stiff peak. Add maple syrup. Mix to incorporate.
  2. Fill 2 tall glasses with ice 3/4 of the way up. Pour milk directly over the top, evenly dividing the liquid between the 2 glasses.
  3. Spoon a generous dollop of whipped coffee over each beverage. Swirl the topping to create a peak on top.
  4. Serve maple latte with a spoon and straw. Stir briefly and enjoy!

🧑🏼‍🍳 Recipe FAQ

These are the most frequently asked questions when making maple whipped dalgona coffee, and the most helpful answers for recipe success!

What is dalgona whipped coffee?

It’s a glass of ice and milk topped with a thick layer of light, fluffy whipped topping. The topping usually consists of equal parts hot water, coffee, and brown sugar or granulated sugar. The topping can also include maple syrup or seasonal spices like cinnamon.

Can dalgona whipped coffee be made with ground coffee?

No. Ground coffee cannot be used with this recipe. Do not use fresh ground coffee beans. And while brewed coffee will whip up, it will never reach that thick, desirable, luscious meringue texture.

What brand of instant coffee is best for this recipe?

Maple whipped coffee can be made with any brand of instant coffee. But a dark roast is not recommended because of its bitter taste. Instant coffee with milk powder is also not recommended as it won’t whip up. Espresso powder or espresso granules can be used for this recipe. Just reduce the amount, as their flavor is strong and bold.

Is dalgona coffee served hot or cold?

This whipped coffee drink can be served with either hot or cold milk. Your choice!

Can I make dalgona coffee without sugar?

It’s not recommended. Sugar is an important ingredient for fluffy whipped coffee. And when combined with maple syrup, it gives this maple whipped coffee the irresistible fall flavor we look forward to.

How to make dalgona coffee vegan?

It’s easy to do without sacrificing flavor! Replace dairy milk with coffee-house favorites: Barista Blend Almondmilk, Oatly Barista Edition, soy milk, or warm water.
