Have you tried the amazingness of Dalgona Coffee? It’s gone viral, and rightly so! It’s originally an Indian or Pakistani beverage and consists of coffee that has been whipped to become creamy. It originated from a South Korean YouTube channel before going viral on TikTok. Once I caught wind about this yummy treat, I wanted to try it, but realized I would need to modify it since Mathew and I are doing keto. After a few tiny swaps, I came up with a Keto Dalgona Coffee that you are going to love! It’s low in carbs and high in flavor and the perfect treat morning, afternoon, or night.
If you were curious, Dalgona Coffee gets its name from the fluffy, toffee-like texture of the coffee when whipped into foam. Once the fluffy mix is made, it is poured over ice cold or warmed milk and ready to drink. The spike in interest during the quarantine period has made this drink so popular, and rightly so- it’s absolutely delicious! If you’re missing Starbucks, definitely grab what you need, because this Keto Dalgona Coffee will knock your socks off.
Here’s what you need for Keto Dalgona Coffee:
This delicious drink is incredibly simple, and only takes a few minutes to make. If you’re in a hurry to start your day or just want a fast treat, this is definitely the way to go. I prefer mine cold, but feel free to warm up your milk and try it hot!
1| Mix Your Ingredients: In a mug, add 2 tablespoons of your instant coffee, 2 tablespoons of Swerve Confectioners or Monkfruit sweetener, and 2 tablespoons of hot water. This is the main component to your Keto Dalgona Coffee.
2| Froth: Using your coffee frother, move the frother in an up and down motion to aerate the Dalgona mixture. You’ll want to froth your coffee/sweetener/water mixture until it is thick and has toffee color.
3| Grab a Mug or Glass: It’s up to you how much of the Keto Dalgona Coffee you want, but I chose a mug. Either way, pour your Unsweetened Coconut Milk or Almond Milk into your mug about 2/3 full. If you plan ahead, I suggest putting your dairy-free milk-filled mug in the freezer so it’s a little crystallized when it’s ready to drink.
4| Pour It On + Enjoy: Using a spoon, dollop your Keto Dalgona Coffee mixture on top of your milk. You can either leave it separated or you can use your spoon to mix the two together and drink. Either way, this Keto Dalgona Coffee is a combination that you will absolutely love and want to enjoy over and over.
