How To Make Whipped Coffee

To make whipped coffee, it’s super easy!

  1. Add equal parts instant coffee, granulated sugar, and hot water into a bowl or mason jar.
  2. Mix well with a hand mixer, immersion mixer, or even a spoon. I’ve been told that you need to mix it 400 turns with a spoon – so I used a mixer! The mixture will go from a liquid to super creamy.
  3. Spoon the mixture over hot or cold milk of choice – you can even use a dairy-free option such as almond or oat milk!

Tips for making whipped coffee

  • Use hot water for best results. It helps to dissolve the sugar and make it less “gritty” tasting.
  • Using a bowl to mix the coffee/water mixture will allow more air to circulate and get even more frothy volume.
  • A hand mixer makes this so much easier! You can use a spoon, but it will take longer.
  • You’ll want to mix the frothy coffee with the milk a little before taking a sip. It just makes it that much better and more like a frappe that we’re all used to.
