How To Make Keto Dalgona Coffee?

To make Dalgona coffee without sugar, simply whip equal amounts of instant coffee, granulated sweetener (Erythritol or Monk Fruit), and hot water.

Use an electric mixer or a whisk to whip the mixture at high speed vigorously. Keep going until it transforms into a fluffy, creamy concoction with stiff peaks resembling meringue or whipped cream.

Divide the whipped coffee mixture into two portions, as this recipe yields two servings.

Fill two glasses with your preferred low-carb plant-based milk, such as unsweetened almond milk.

If desired, add a few ice cubes to the glasses for a refreshing touch, perfect for warmer days.

Spoon the whipped coffee mixture onto the milk in each glass, evenly distributing it.

For an added touch, you can sprinkle a dusting of cocoa powder or cinnamon on top of the whipped coffee layer.

Serve immediately and relish in the luxurious taste of your homemade Keto Dalgona Coffee.

Can You Make Keto Dalgona Coffee Without Instant Coffee?

It’s possible to make sugar-free whipped coffee without instant coffee. Pour a scoop of your favorite coffee beans and use your coffee grinder to turn it into a fine powder. Then, sift through a sieve to get only the finest powder. Replace instant coffee with the resulting powder and make the best keto Dalgona coffee. 

It looks like you can use matcha powder, cocoa powder, or strawberry powder instead of instant coffee and make other keto iced drinks to enjoy this summer.

  • Caramel Infusion: Indulge your taste buds by preparing homemade caramel sauce and adding one tablespoon of it to the bottom of your glass before pouring in the milk and whipped coffee. The result is a heavenly caramel-flavored treat.
  • Warm and Spicy: For those who enjoy a hint of warmth and spice, sprinkle half a teaspoon of cinnamon into the whipped coffee mixture. It adds a cozy touch to your keto Dalgona coffee.
