Is it hard to make Dalgona coffee or whipped coffee?
Not at all. You only need 3 main ingredients to make this coffee. Instant coffee, granulated sugar, and cold milk.
Can I use a different kind of sugar?
Yes, you can use brown sugar or coconut sugar, as long as they are granulated sugar.
Can I use less sugar?
Absolutely! I tried to use 1/2 the amount of sugar; however, it does not stay fluffy and you will get a soft peak instead.
Can I use without sugar?
I tried and it took me longer to whip the cream and it does not stay fluffy.
What combination can I use with Dalgona coffee or whipped coffee?
You can use cocoa powder, matcha, or avocado smoothie. That’s my favorite, BTW. Avocado smoothie with whipped coffee on top. It’s so creamy good or should I say creamylicious?
Mine is bitter. How can I make it less bitter?
You can add extra sugar before you whip the coffee or you can also add sweetener to your milk.
