Whipped Tiramisu Coffee


Dalgona coffee, also known as whipped coffee, is the layered South Korean drink that is taking the internet by storm. This version, made with instant powdered espresso, is inspired by the flavors of Tiramisu and served with crisp savoiardi cookies on the side.


  • 1 tablespoon instant espresso powder (tested with DeLallo)
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon hot water
  • 1 tablespoon hot fudge sauce, melted
  • 1 tablespoon sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 2/3 to 3/4 cup ice cold milk (tested with almond milk)
  • 1/4 teaspoon dark cocoa powder
  • Crisp lady fingers (savoiardi) for serving


  1. In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine the espresso powder, sugar, and hot water.
  2. Whip on high speed until the mixture is thick and glossy, and has lightened in color.
  3. Drizzle the hot fudge on the insides of a glass. Pour in the sweetened condensed milk.
  4. Pour the heavy cream over the back of a spoon into the glass, layering it on top of the condensed milk.
  5. Pour the milk over the back of a spoon also. Spoon the whipped coffee on top of the milk and lightly dust with the cocoa powder.
  6. Serve immediately with crisp lady fingers.

I'm not a coffee drinker but I still can't believe how delicious this looks! It's really tempting, perhaps I might use some decaff...

Omit sweetened condensed milk for a lighter, less dessert-like coffee drink.
For plain dalgona coffee, use instant coffee granules in place of the espresso; whip and pour over ice cold milk.
Ground coffee will not work in this recipe, you must use instant coffee granules or powdered instant espresso.
