I’m convinced our Echo Show fancies herself to be a chef; she’s always suggesting that we ask her about recipes. So when “Alexa” suggested that I ask her about the “quarantine coffee trend,” this coffee-loving momma couldn’t resist.

You may have heard about dalgona coffee by now. It started as a trend on Tik Tok, but it quickly made its way to internet fame. My husband is home this week, so we decided to give this “quarantine coffee trend” a try for ourselves. This creamy whipped coffee drink has quickly turned into our morning coffee habit. Here’s how we did it.

Dalgona Coffee


1 tbsp. granulated sugar

1 tbsp. instant coffee

1 tbsp. warm water

1 cup milk – I used vanilla unsweetened almond milk, but any kind of milk will work.


  1. Add sugar, instant coffee, and water to a clean bowl.
  2. Whisk ingredients together until the mixture is a thick, foamy consistency. This is much easier if you use an electric hand mixer, but with some patience, an old-fashioned whisk will do.
  3. Pour milk into a glass, and dollop the whipped coffee mixture on top.
  4. (Optional) You can stir the mixture into the milk for a more consistent sweet coffee flavor throughout.

This is such a fun, easy treat! If you would like a larger serving, you can easily double the recipe (this is what I did for my husband). Let me know what you think! Connect with me on Instagram at @michelleelaineburton. I would love to see your photos of your own experience making dalgona coffee!
