  • 1 cup (240 mL)
  • 3 cups (720 mL)
    unsweetened coconut milk beverage
  • 2 tsp (10 mL)
  • ¼ cup (60 mL)
    hot water
  • ¼ cup (56 g)
    granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp (4 g)
    espresso powder


  1. Pour the brewed coffee into an ice cube tray and freeze. In a pitcher, combine the coconut milk and vanilla. Store in the fridge until ready to use.
  2. In a large bowl, add the water, sugar and espresso powder and whip with a electric hand mixer for 4 - 5 minutes or until soft peaks form. Alternatively, you could also whip it by hand using a whisk which will take about 8 - 12 minutes.
  3. To serve, add the coffee ice cubes to a glass. Fill half the cup with the vanilla milk, and top the other half with whipped coffee*. Stir and enjoy.


  • * The coffee whip can be re-whipped, if it's starting to deflate before it's served.


  • The coffee ice cubes can be stored in the freezer in the ice cube tray for up to a week, or remove from the tray and keep in an airtight container or bag in the freezer for up to 1 month.
  • The vanilla coconut milk can be stored in the container for up to 3 days.

I really love this one Sadia, it's a smile I need!

Yayy keep smiling, Teresa โ˜บ๏ธโœจ

Very nice

Baccy - Aug. 6, 2023, 11:49 p.m.

hey! do you make the ice cubes with cold brew or regular brew coffee? thanks :>

PUL Team - Aug. 7, 2023, 9:44 a.m.

Hey Baccy, in our recipe we used regular brew coffee, but you could definitely use cold brew if you'd prefer :)

Baccy - Aug. 8, 2023, 6:03 a.m.

Thank you so much for the fast reply! Loved the ice cube idea!
Now I know where to use my leftover coffee :)

Orlanne - Aug. 2, 2023, 9:03 p.m.

It tasted absolutely delicious!!! I don't have a freezer so I didn't make ice cubes and just poured the cold coffee like that in the mug. I also couldn't whip the coffee mousse for a long time because my whisk isn't powerful enough so the mouse wasn't firm enough BUT despite that, it tasted great. The sweetness of the mousse balances the strong coffee flavour and it's just a perfect for me! โ˜•

Grace-Anne - June 27, 2023, 11:27 p.m.

If anyone is interested in making the whip a little less sweet (itโ€™s delish as is, but I tend towards less sweet), I have just made a single serving with 2T hot water, 1T sugar, and 2tsp. Espresso powder. It worked perfect! In fact, it thickened up faster! For those of you that are like me and have a smaller sweet tooth - enjoy!

PUL Team - June 28, 2023, 9:09 a.m.

๐Ÿ™Œ thanks so much for sharing your experience, Grace-Anne!

Grace-Anne - June 16, 2023, 10:54 p.m.

Wow! So delish. I even found decaf espresso powder. This turned out so yummy. Thank you!

Annie - Aug. 5, 2022, 9:14 p.m.

Is there a chance I could make the dalgona whip without the sugar, rather just coffee + water + maybe some maple syrup?

PUL Team - Aug. 6, 2022, 12:58 a.m.

Hey Annie, we haven't tested it out so we can't say with absolute certainty. It looks like there are other recipes online that use maple syrup though, so it could work. It likely would take longer to whip and may fall easier than coffee whip made with granulated sugar. We'd love to hear how it goes if you experiment with it ๐Ÿ™‚

alexa - July 15, 2022, 2:16 p.m.

hey i really like this recipe and what i would suggest is can u pls inform what all kinds of milks u use, not only in the particular recipe but also the others like the vegan cake etc...

PUL Team - July 15, 2022, 3:08 p.m.

Hey Alexa, thanks for the kind words and suggestion. In case you're interested and haven't already seen it yet, the little arrow beside an ingredient name can be clicked to show sample substitutes on our website. For example, any unsweetened plant-based milk of choice can be used in this recipe whereas we recommend pea or soy milk in our cake recipes for their higher protein content ๐Ÿ™‚

BM - June 11, 2022, 4:41 p.m.

When the dalgona trend came up in lockdown, I tried it and couldnโ€™t quite get it to work. I just tried your method exactly and canโ€™t believe how thick it became ๐Ÿคฏ๐Ÿคฏ another great recipe! Thank you! Looking forward to the app!

PUL Team - June 15, 2022, 3:56 a.m.

Oh so lovely to hear, BM, it means so much! Love a thick coffee whip ๐Ÿคค

Tee - June 9, 2022, 12:19 a.m.

Heyy!! I tried the espresso whip, but it did not work:/ I used water , sugar and espresso powder. Do we use warm water or cold water?

PUL Team - June 10, 2022, 7:17 p.m.

Hey Tee, thank you for taking the time to share - how disappointing to hear! Yes, just the water, sugar and espresso are needed for the whip. Warmer water may work better so we've updated the recipe accordingly to make it clear. Although we've also made it with room-temp water from the tap successfully. Aside from this, did you use the portions listed in the recipe? We find the whip can be delicate so measuring carefully is important in this one. Giving enough time to whip is also super helpful. Sometimes the extra 5 or 10 minutes can make all the difference! We hope this helps for now, Tee, and do let us know how it goes if you give it another try ๐Ÿ™‚

Alexandria - May 31, 2022, 2:52 p.m.

I am in LOVE with this coffee whip!!! It is so tasty and I love that this drink gets better the longer it sits!!

PUL Team - May 31, 2022, 10:44 p.m.

Woohoo! Thank you, Alexandria ๐Ÿ™‚

Deepthi - March 29, 2022, 7:44 a.m.

My entire coffee game has been changed due to this recipe and the coffee ice cubes! I don't know why I had not tried this sooner, this is absolute genius ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

PUL Team - March 29, 2022, 8:49 p.m.

Aw we're so happy it's being enjoyed, Deepthi, it means so much!

Nada A - Oct. 8, 2021, 11:57 a.m.

Wow this looks absolutely awesome! will give it a try just popped some coffee cubes in the freezer! can't waittttt!!

PUL Team - Oct. 9, 2021, 8:33 p.m.

Aw we hope you enjoyed it, Nada!

Jessi - Sept. 13, 2021, 12:46 p.m.

This recipe is really amazing. I have never enjoyed coffee but in this recipe all the flavours have been really well balanced! Thank you for sharing :-)

PUL Team - Sept. 14, 2021, 2:30 a.m.

So lovely to hear, Jessi, thank you!

Cheryl - Sept. 12, 2021, 5:45 p.m.

This is lovely way to drink coffee on a warm day. My friends all love it too. Excellent and easy to make. I make decaf.

Leticia - Sept. 2, 2021, 5:13 a.m.

This recipe is great! I made this drink and it was my favorite by far of all your coffee recipes :) #forevercaffeinated

PUL Team - Sept. 3, 2021, 3:37 a.m.

Such a huge compliment, Leticia, thank you!

Rashi - July 29, 2021, 7:20 p.m.

This is brilliant.
Just brilliant! Coffee ice cubes, I mean.. you know what I mean. This took the usual Dalgona iced coffee to another level. I will make this with almond milk (will add some cashew cream for thickness!)

Thankyou Sadia :)

PUL Team - July 29, 2021, 11:45 p.m.

Oh, Rashi, thank YOU for the incredible review! We're so grateful the recipe was enjoyed ๐Ÿ’š

Despina - July 26, 2021, 2:13 p.m.

Every recipe with coffee is favourites. Thank you!

Iris - July 25, 2021, 9:11 a.m.

Love the whip! I make a quarter of the recipe because I make it just for me and apparently my glasses are tiny. My hand mixer is temporarily out of commission so I tried whipping it with one of those battery powered milk frothing wands and it took only about a minute to be super smooth and fluffy. Definitely recommend using one of those if you have one.

PUL Team - July 27, 2021, 1:06 a.m.

Ooo thanks for the frothing wand tip, Iris, it's so appreciated! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Jenni H. - July 25, 2021, 4:35 a.m.

This drink was so much fun to make (and drink!). I have a deep fear of not having enough coffee and always brew too much - I'll store leftovers in the fridge usually but made ice cubes this time. What I appreciate about this drink is there is no rush to drink it before it waters down. The perfect sip while reading a book and soaking up some sunshine. (I used Califia Farms Toasted Coconut & Almond Milk and did not add vanilla. It was on point.)

PUL Team - July 27, 2021, 12:51 a.m.

Oo we're so happy you're enjoying the iced coffee, Jenni! We appreciate you sharing this so much ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Georgiana - July 21, 2021, 10 a.m.

I've tried all of the three iced coffee recipes and to be honest, I don't know which one of them is my favorite! All I can say is that this one is a very interesting one and I've never tried a similar one before. These recipes definitely made my summer days!

Charlotte - July 20, 2021, 12:48 p.m.

This was my first time trying coffee whip and it is magical!! It blows my mind a little that it is made just using water, coffee powder and sugar! Me and my boyfriend both enjoyed this drink and actually made the recipe stretch to four portions (our glasses must be small!). I hadn't bought any coconut drink in ages and I now remember how much I enjoy it.

PUL Team - July 20, 2021, 4:09 p.m.

We're so thrilled your first experience was enjoyable, Charlotte! Thanks so much for the incredible review ๐Ÿ™‚

Michelle - July 20, 2021, 12:04 a.m.

Husband & I watched the video together - he's a coffee enthusiast and I'm a fan. He made this recipe for me the following day and it is absolutely the best coffee drink I've ever had. So delicious and perfect in every way. I really loved sipping on it while watching the coffee cubes melt and swirl into the milk.
We had it again the following day with oatmilk instead of coconut milk and it was just as good. This one's a keeper!

PUL Team - July 20, 2021, 3:37 p.m.

What a huuge compliment, Michelle, thank you! We're so thrilled you and your husband enjoyed this one ๐Ÿคฉ

Marta - July 19, 2021, 3:09 p.m.

Thank You for this recipe and for making my life so much easier! I already recommended this side & youtube channel to my boyfriend and he agrees that is everything he was searching for! (Some time ago we were talking about the recipe website with a search bar like this and we are glad we finally found it!) Plus I'm not vegan nor vegetarian, because I always found it too expensive and time consuming, but with your help I realized I haven't eaten meat during past week. You are a big inspiration Thank You!

PUL Team - July 20, 2021, 3:21 p.m.

Oh, Marta, this means so much! We're so grateful to have you in our PUL family ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Amy - July 18, 2021, 8:39 a.m.

Take a quick look at direction #3. It says whip the water... might want to fix that and feel free to delete my comment after you update it. PS. Im playing with your iced coffee recipes and they are so fun!

PUL Team - July 19, 2021, 7:05 a.m.

Thanks for sharing your feedback, Amy ๐Ÿ˜Š You do indeed whip the water together with the sugar and espresso powder, but we've updated the write-up regardless just to make sure there's no ambiguity ๐Ÿค“ thank you! And so glad to hear you're enjoying the iced coffee recipes โ˜€๏ธ thanks for being open to trying them out!

Huda kashif - July 18, 2021, 3:35 a.m.

I loved it so delicious and ice cube thing was genius !!

Arielle Lodie - July 17, 2021, 1:20 a.m.

I love all of your recipes and these coffee ones I can't wait to try! I recently recommended your channel to some friends of mine to share the goodness

PUL Team - July 18, 2021, 2:40 a.m.

Aww thank you for recommending PUL to others, Arielle! It's one of the best compliments to hear ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Fariha - July 14, 2021, 8:04 p.m.

This is a really great recipe! I tried it with decaf coffee granules and it worked super! Thanks Sadia and PUL!

Carin - July 14, 2021, 3:05 p.m.

Haven't tried the recipe yet, but I'm eager to! Love the ice cubicles idea and just wanted to share that so that you guys have one comment more ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜˜

PUL Team - July 18, 2021, 1:19 a.m.

Let us know how it goes if you give the recipe a try, Carin!

Jui - July 13, 2021, 9:07 p.m.

It's amazing how I can adjust the proportions and serving size on this recipe thank you!
It's great because I hate doing math..

PUL Team - July 18, 2021, 12:32 a.m.

So glad you're enjoying the new website features, Jui! Hope you enjoy the recipe ๐Ÿ™‚

Liz - July 12, 2021, 7:28 p.m.

This is such a delicious and luxurious way to start the day! Especially in California heatwaves x.x I honestly thought I would mess up making the coffee whip, but it's actually really easy! I ended up using oat milk instead of coconut milk because that's what I have on hand. It was still very tasty but I'm excited to try it out with coconut milk next week.

Sofia - July 13, 2021, 10:29 a.m.

Ok, so you don't have to use coconut milk? Bc I think the coconut flavour is overpowering. I'll try with pat, or soy, or pea maybe... endless options

PUL Team - July 16, 2021, 1:47 a.m.

Thank you for sharing, Liz! Also a great question, Sofia. Any plant-based beverages should work. Let us know how it goes if you give any others a try ๐Ÿค—

Mehak - July 10, 2021, 3:12 p.m.

Thank you Sadia and Sadia's team. This was so yummy and I will definitely be enjoying it over and over again this summer!

Katherine Broberg - July 9, 2021, 7:26 p.m.

My husband usually hates vegan dalgona coffee, but he loved this!

Oli Heart - July 9, 2021, 6:15 p.m.

here to add one comment more to this website. Love this recipe! I should be commenting on all, thank you so much for all your amazing videos on youtube about vegan food, they helped me a lot on starting this journey. You should totally create an "online course" with a certificate in the end, I know you have the knowledge and hight quality content necessary to make it appealing, I bet that a lot of us would totally buy it. Kisses

PUL Team - July 15, 2021, 2:23 a.m.

Hello there, Oli Heart, we appreciate this so much more than words can describe! Thank you for helping make our PUL family so special and all the best of your journey โœจ๐Ÿ’–

Sneha - July 9, 2021, 4:17 p.m.

Loved the whipped coffee so much!!! Made it for family and they all loved it toooo!! :)

Adri - July 9, 2021, 9:20 a.m.

Saw the video and was freezing my coffee before it even ended. I always drink my coffee black and very hot, but this is definitely a wonderful option for the warmer months!

PUL Team - July 13, 2021, 7:36 a.m.

We're so glad to see this review, Adri! Thank you for sharing โœจ

MoLuVz - July 9, 2021, 3:28 a.m.

Love the idea of freezing the coffee in cubes during these high temps. So simple, thank you!

MaryfsRD - July 8, 2021, 10:44 p.m.

this is perfectly timed! I just froze some coffee into cubes, and it's a nice 91 degrees F in Texas right now!
