Sugar Free Dalgona Coffee needs just 3 main ingredients and you've got a keto, low carb, paleo, fantastic whipped coffee beverage enjoyed iced or hot!
WHAT IS DALGONA COFFEE?
Whipped coffee or Dalgona coffee, popular in South Korea, has been around for a long time. Just recently though it began trending because of a video that went viral on TikTok video and then Instagram. It's a creamy beverage made with just equal parts instant coffee, sugar and hot water. I was super skeptical and quite surprised how it actually thickened and became whipped in texture even though I swapped the sugar for a sugar free sweetener. So it works and it works wonderfully and is perfectly delightful when combined with ice cold unsweet almond milk. Once thoroughly mixed it takes on a frappuccino style coffee drink.
HOW TO MAKE IT LESS BITTER
I experimented with the ratios of instant coffee, sugar free sweetener and water quite a bit. While my husband and oldest son liked the orginial ratio of 2 tablespoons of coffee with 2 tablespoons of sweetener and 2 tablespoons of hot water, I felt it was quite bitter as did my teenage daughter. You can certainly try the original ratios to see how you like it, but if you're anything like me and not really into strong, bitter coffee, try my recipe below. With the addition of spices and extracts and using a bit less coffee, this keto concoction is amazing!
Natural Sugar Free Sweetener Options
I've tried this recipe multiple times with different low carb sweeteners. The one I feel is best, with no graininess, is Swerve confectioners. I did also like the flavor using the Swerve Brown sugar sub, but it did have some grainy texture in it. I've also tried this with liquid Allulose and powdered Allulose. And while I am a fan of Allulose as a sweetener in recipes like ice cream, see my Coffee Semi-Freddo, I did not like the flavor as much for this recipe.
My preference is still the confectioners Swerve. Use my SWEETENER GUIDE AND CONVERSION CHART .
TOOLS TO MAKE DALGONA COFFEE
You really just need a stand mixer or a hand held electric mixer to make this very quickly. It will take about 3 minutes to get it whipped really well. You can do this by hand but it will take forever and in my opinion, not worth my time, use the mixer, folks!

Sugar Free Whipped Coffee Iced Latte
I personally think having this sugar free whipped coffee over cold, unsweetened, almond milk over ice is the tastiest. It completely surprises me that even without heavy cream, I am enjoying an iced frappe like latte. It's best to stir the whipped coffee into the almond milk to really get it absorbed well. This will make the texture creamy and the latte taste even better than sipping it with it just sitting on top of the milk.

SUGAR FREE KETO DALGONA COFFEE
Sugar Free Whipped Coffee
- 1 tablespoon Instant coffee
- 3 tablespoon Swerve confectioners (see sweetener options above, paragraph 3)
- ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon optional
- ½ teaspoon caramel extract or vanilla extract
- pinch sea salt
- 2 tablespoon hot water
- Combine all the ingredients, except the hot water, into a stand mixer or bowl using a hand held mixer. Mix to combine.
- Pour in the hot water and turn the stand mixer on high speed, number 6, for 1 minute. Scrap down the sides of the bowl and blend on high again for 2-3 more minutes until lighter in color and whipped in texture.
- Heat a cup of unsweet almond milk or milk of choice or serve milk over ice and spoon half the whipped coffee into your glass. If enjoying this iced, I'd suggest stirring to combine the whipped coffee into the milk very well to make more like a latte.
Back in the day I used to do something like this, I used instant coffee dutched Coco powder, sugar, powder milk and a bit of rum then blend with hot water, it didn't foam up as much but it was still delicious.
I am just starting to do the sugar free. I have bought a lot of the unsweetener and so I tried this coffee and it is pretty good. I think I might of bought the wrong kind of instant coffee. It took almost 8 minutes to finally look like whip cream. My husband is a diabetic and over weight and I'm over weight but we have been working on losing weight and exercising but my husband loves sweets and has a hard time staying away from it. He started buying sugar free candy and I don't like what is in the candy. So I'm trying to make desserts that he will like. I'm going to try to make the carrot cake cheesecake and hope he loves it.
Love. Where are your cute plates from?
I got them many years ago at Target.
I made this tonight and it was delicious. I used instant espresso and put my half in iced coconut milk. My companion put his on top of a cup of hot coffee. He is a sugar lover but said this was a keeper. Both ways were awesome!
Can you only make whipped coffee with instant coffee?
Yes sadly it hasn't worked for me with anything else.
I have espresso instant coffee will this work ?
It will but it might be very very strong.
Hey from the uk just made this morning and love it only thing is I found it being to sweet but that could be the sweetner here in the uk so dropped it to 1 tbsp and love it. Having been diagnosed a diabetic this month it still means I can get a luxury coffee and not have any worry about my sugars going though the roof.
Very good! Whipped this up For myself and my teens using organic decaf coffee crystals and boca sweet sweetener & made it into iced lattes with whipped cream on top! So nice to have a “Starbucks-like” drink while we’re all on corona lock down!
Thank you so much!
Can I use ground coffee in place of instant coffee?
Has anyone tried to made with a hand mixer using the whipping attachment? This sounds so yummy.
I haven't made this yet but wanted to comment about not using brown Swerve due to grittiness. Doesn't any sugar become "powdered" if you put the granulated form in a blender? This might be a way to use the brown and lose the grit.
How much brown swerve? But Do you add that and the confectioner's swerve are just one of them
Either one and same amount, 3 tbsp, they are the same sweetness.
How about coconut milk as an option?
Sure that works too!
Can you use espresso coffee not instant?
Only if you like to drink grounds. IOW, no.
I just finish whipping mine and it is SO good! Thank you for sharing your recipe.
Hey, my sister just posted the original video to my Facebook In hopes I like it and stop spending money at Starbucks. I did! And I haven’t gone to Starbucks since. I didn’t have instant coffee, only had instant espresso and let me tell you, I don’t think I would have liked it without the espresso. Anyway; I just used a whisk and my hand and it took less than 3 minutes to get it all whipped up. I’ve thought about using the handheld or kitchen aid, but would take more time to use those and more dishes than to just use my arm muscles. It takes all together five minutes to make and I’m out the door for work. I boil the water in a pot while getting the ingredients ready. And I’m not lying, less than 3 minutes to whip by hand: same time you said it takes for your hand held or kitchen aid. Anyway, I’m glad you found a sugar free one because my sister was trying to do this and couldn’t find one. So yay we both can enjoy this amazing drink!
I'm just going to eat it!!
guilty of that! either way is still good!
This is incredible. I am an avid coffee freak. I love this for a change. It gives me something besides water or plain BPC to satisfy my tastebuds. I love this website.
