Keto Dalgona Coffee Recipe [Fluffy Whipped Coffee]

If you’ve spent any time on social media recently, chances are you have happened across Korean dalgona coffee, commonly known as whipped coffee. Light and fluffy, dalgona coffee is a whipped coffee mixture served over iced milk. It’s a fun way to change up how you get your caffeine fix. Not only does it taste great, but the dual layers look amazing too—making for an impressive drink to serve to friends and family.

The traditional Korean recipe calls for powdered sugar, which isn’t keto friendly. Some keto recipes use erythritol, but we chose allulose. You really don’t notice the difference, as it leaves your coffee tasting sweet and nicely compliments the other flavors in the drink.

Just because the dalgona coffee looks fancy doesn’t mean it’s difficult to make. It is merely coffee, allulose and hot water whipped together to create an intense, fluffy coffee foam.

This coffee foam is extremely intense in flavor, so you’ll need milk to balance it out. Spoon the foam over a glass of iced milk of your choice (we love almond milk) then serve!

You can choose whether to mix the two layers together, or drink it through a straw and get a little bit of each at once. Either way, make sure to consume your dalgona coffee immediately for maximum flavor.

Read the full recipe with full nutrition breakdown and step-by-step pictures over at:


1 tablespoon instant coffee
1 tablespoon allulose
1 tablespoon water, hot
1/4 cup ice cubes
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
2 tablespoon heavy cream

Nutrition Summary: This makes a total of 1 serving of Keto Dalgona Coffee. Each serving comes out to be 122 calories, 12g fat, 1.1g net carbs, and 1.4g protein.

    I love how that spilled drip eventually found it’s way into the cup, climbing over the edge.

    Allulose is one of the 8000 “food” not allowed in Europe…Allulose is banned in Europe because it is a possible carcinogen. Allulose is a type of sugar that is found in some fruits and vegetables. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has designated allulose a food ingredient that is generally recognized as safe, though it is currently not permitted for use in Europe.Mar 7, 2023

      Not exactly true. Allulose is classified as a novel food, and requires more strict testing before being approved in Europe for sale. It’s currently undergoing the application process and is slated to be accepted and sold in Europe in the next 2 years. They did not deny sales due to it being a ‘possible carcinogen’ specifically, though, just from more testing required.

      Either way, you’re welcome to use a different sweetener that you deem as safe instead since the US tests don’t seem to be up to your standards 👍

      @RuledMe why use a sweetener anyway? And it’s not about personal standard. It’s about safety. 😉

      ​@grazia loro For me, keto is a lifestyle – something I’ve been following for over 15 years at this point. For it to be a lifestyle, it needs to be sustainable. For it to be sustainable, I need to be able to make things that I enjoy, which includes things that are sweetened from time to time. If you want to make the personal choice to never eat sweeteners, you can definitely do that. For me, I’m willing to eat sweeteners. Based on the evidence I’ve seen, it’s safer than consuming sugar on a long-term basis. If you’re concerned about health safety, then you’re probably targeting the wrong channel/audience 😉

      @RuledMe it was just a comment. I am not targeting anyone. Anyway toodaloo 👋

    I forgot about this way to prepare coffee. I got side-tracked by the Greek frappe that is also made with instant coffee. They favor Nescafe over there, and say that freeze-dried instant is the best. However, I’m sure any instant coffee will do, and I always have some on hand, including decaf.
