The first time I made this delicious iced coffee I did it as a hand whisk challenge on our YouTube channel just for fun.

What is Dalgona coffee?

Dalgona coffee originates from South Korea. It got its name because of its resemblance to Korean candy called Dalgona candy. Also, it's very similar to the honeycomb toffee we can buy in supermarkets. Dalgona coffee is a drink made by whipping equal portions of instant coffee granules, sugar, and hot water until it becomes thick and creamy, then simply adding it to ice-cold or hot milk. I’m so glad I tried out this trending TikTok coffee as it became my favorite summertime drink. It’s super simple to make too, and I’m glad it was, as there is nowhere to buy Dalgona coffee near me.

Is dalgona coffee a healthy drink?

Like regular coffee, Dalgona coffee can give you an Instant Energy Boost, increasing energy levels, reducing fatigue, and leaving you feeling smarter. Also, instant coffee may have benefits for your health, as it contains several beneficial antioxidants and nutrients that can help with reducing your risk of liver disease and type 2 diabetes.

Tips and Tricks 
Using an electric hand whisk makes light work of whisking up the light fluffy Dalgona whip. Using a full stand mixer doesn't work well as it doesn't mix the contents as the Dalgona ingredients are too low in volume.
