I’m a huge coffee lover, and I love this new trend that’s taken the internet by storm. This coffee looks so fancy and tastes incredible. I enjoy every sip of it from the comfort of my home.

It’s a creamy iced coffee recipe that’s viral on all social platforms (TikTok, Youtube, Facebook, etc.). Everyone’s making it. And for a good reason: the frothy bittersweet coffee and cold milk it’s a combo made in Heaven. 

It’s usually made with instant coffee and sugar, but it works just as fine with any granulated low carb sugar substitute such as Erythritol or Monk Fruit. 

The name comes from South Korea because it resembles in texture to Dalgona batter toffee, which’s a famous Korean sponge toffee

Ingredients for Keto Dalgona Coffee

For this frothy keto iced coffee, you’ll need just a few ingredients. The ratio is 1:1:1.

 This whipped coffee recipe calls for a 1:1:1 ratio of instant coffee, sweetener, and hot water, whipped either with a mixer or by hand, then poured over ice and milk.

Use the same quantity of coffee, sugar, and boiling water :

  • 3 tbsp instant coffee
  • 3 tbsp granulated sweetener
  • 3 tbsp boiling water
  • 2 cups unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk 
  • Ice cubes, optional
  • Vanilla Extract

Try this if you want to make it into a frothy keto mocha: 1 Tbsp cocoa powder, 1 Tbsp instant coffee, 2 Tbsp sweetener, 2 Tbsp boiling water. Use the same method described at the bottom of this post.

Some say you’ll need to whisk for about 400 times to get that perfect frothy coffee. This will take about 5 minutes, and you can definitely count it as a workout.

But, an electric mixer makes this step so easy, and the result is incredible. If you don’t want to complicate your life and make this delicious Dalgona coffee faster, use your electric mixer. Mix for about 2 minutes until stiff peaks start to form.

  • Fill a glass with ice and then pour in the milk. Top it with about three heaping tablespoons of frothy coffee and enjoy!  

This recipe makes enough coffee mousse for 2 cups of coffee, therefore enough for two servings. You can either share it or keep it for later. 

What Sweetener to use for the best results?

I recommend using Granulated Swerve to make a sugar-free Dalgona Coffee.

You can use Confectioners Swerve or Granulated Monk Fruits too.

Stevia or stevia-based sweeteners are not the best for this keto coffee recipe since it’s much sweeter and filled with maltodextrin.

If your sweetener is a mix of Erythritol and stevia, it should work.

  • In a medium mixing bowl, add instant coffee, Sweetener, and boiling water.
  • Whisk vigorously using a round whisk for about 4-5 minutes or until stiff peaks start to form. Whisk for 400 times until fluffy. Using a fork or a spoon takes way too long.
  • Use your hand mixer and mix at medium speed for about 2 minutes until your mixture is thick and creamy.
  • To serve, fill a glass with ice, add the milk of choice and top with whipped cream
  • Stir and serve. Enjoy!



PS: You can use warm milk if it’s too cold where you live to make hot Dalgona Coffee. It’s so delicious!
Immersion blenders and classic blenders don’t turn the coffee into stiff peaks.
Add vanilla extract for an extra special iced coffee.

  1. I’ve tried this and fail every time. I’m getting frustrated 🙁 Can I be using the wrong coffee? I like dark coffee flavor, so I have dark blends. Is this why?

  2. 5 stars
    I think I need a better quality instant coffee. I used Folgers because it’s all I had Anyhow, I think it is great! With the vanilla extract and I added a drop of maple extract and the smoothness, it kind of reminds me of an Affrogato which I’m my favorite coffee!
