Dalgona Coffee - or whipped coffee - as it's sometimes called, is taking the internet by storm. In fact, soon it'll just be called Tik Tok coffee since EVERYONE on the app is making it. However, the drink is loaded with sugar, so today I'm showing you how to make Keto dalgona coffee! This is my go-to recipe, and it has no sugar!
Keto Dalgona Coffee
Dalgona coffee is a thick, rich, and bold coffee that's usually mixed with milk and ice.
It's also very sweet.
Dalgona means "Wow it's sweet" in Korean - and, South Korea, is where it comes from!
So, typically this coffee is made with equal parts of hot water, instant coffee, and sugar. Usually, you'd add 2 tbsps of each.
However, for this keto dalgona coffee we'll be replacing the sugar with 0 carb Swerve, and also upping the amount of it a bit too.
So for this recipe, we're going to use...
- 2 Tbsps (30g) hot water
- 2 Tbsps (14g) Instant Coffee
- 5 Tbsps (45g) Confectioners Swerve

How To Make Dalgona Coffee For Keto
We'll want to add those ingredients to a medium-sized bowl, and then use a whisk to beat them into a whipped mousse consistency. And it will take a few minutes of whipping to get it to that consistency. So, be patient.
Alternatively, you could use a hand mixer to whip the coffee.
But, we're all stuck inside right now - #shelterinplace - the gyms are closed, and you could probably use the exercise! Right?! Right.
Anyways, once that's whipped nicely, just add some ice to a glass, and then fill it about ¾ of the way full of the milk-of-your-choice. For me, that's unsweetened almond milk.
Then we're going to scoop our whipped coffee on top of our iced milk and take a photo of our beautiful keto dalgona coffee. However, we are NOT going to drink it like this.
The best way to enjoy this coffee is by mixing all of that whipped coffee deliciousness into the milk and ice.
A lot of times, just a little bit of that thick dalgona coffee mixture will still stay at the top of your glass and gives every sip an amazing amount of flavor.
Also, I should mention, the recipe definitely makes enough for 2 cups of coffee.
So, a lot of days I just cut the recipe in half, and just make one cup.
However, if you really need a caffeine boost, pouring all of the mousse in just one cup of milk will definitely do the trick.
And that's pretty much it!
That's how to make no sugar keto dalgona coffee
Can I use normal coffee grounds Or Hot Coffee?
Unfortunately, you can't.
Instant coffee has a special property about it to actually make dalgona coffee "whipped coffee".
If you try to use normal coffee grounds, or just hot coffee, you will not end up with a whipped consistency for the coffee.
As I mentioned before, I recommend using Confectioners Swerve to replace the sugar in the coffee.
However, I've seen others have success with Granulated Swerve, and granulated monk fruit as well.
That said, I don't recommend using Stevia, or other sweeteners, because usually, they're MUCH SWEETER than the ones I just mentioned. Also, a lot of times these sweeteners are mostly fillers - like maltodextrin - and then just a tiny bit of stevia is added to them.
By the way, these fillers are really just sugar disguised with another name.

- 1 Minute keto pancakes
- Pound Cake

Very yummy!! Thanks
💕💕💕💕💕 yummm thankss i used the almon cocnut milk mix omg
Simplemente la mejor, sigo las recetas de Joe, ya desde hace un año y procuro conseguir la marca Swerve Confectioners para las recetas, en esta ocasión sólo tenía la versión Granular e igual funcionó y el sabor era delicioso.
Simply the best, I've been following Joe's recipes since one year ago and I often try to have the Swerve confectioners, but on this occasion, I used the granular version and it worked too, tasted delicious.

Aweeee ty :)
Delicioso. Yo utilizo una cda. de café instantáneo, una cda. y media de agua caliente y 1cda. de azúcar granulada lakanto . Más económico . Para una persona.
Yay! Thank you for this!! Any ideas on how to incorporate a protein shake in there? For the profee drinkers??
The Diet Chef says
I think I might make the coffee first, and then use it as the "base" to the shake :)
Followed recipe exactly but replaced the coffee with hershey's cocoa (unsweetened) and added a bit of heavy cream to the milk. I had myself a yummy refreshing drink. Tasted like chocolate milk and chick-fil-a cookies and cream milkshake at the same time. Thanks a ton for the recipe!!
The Diet Chef says
Glad it still worked out :)
Wow! This was amazing! Ditching my iced coffee (grocery bought Starbucks iced coffee) after making this 🙌 thank you sooooo much!
The Diet Chef says
Is your macro breakdown including the almond milk base?
The Diet Chef says
O.M.G!!! This is sooo good Joe! I felt like I was having a rich dessert! I didn’t know you had a cookbook. I’ve been following you for a long time. Would love to order your book or at least an ebook if it’s available. Thanks for all your delicious recipes 🤗
Have you tried drinking it warm? Just wondering. Thanks!
So very good!
Ty ty ty for this amazing coffee drink. I will definitely make this often. It reminds me of an iced coffee I like to buy on the street in Bangkok. This is the first keto version of a sweet coffee that I’ve truly enjoyed. Also I love your hot chocolate recipe.
Great recipe, turned out perfect and delicious!

Frappe the ice and almond milk then top with Dalgona coffee...yumminess!!
This is great, but I did not see a need for 5 tbsp of the swerve confectioners sugar. It was fine with less. I used 2 tbsp and it was sweet enough using less of an expensive product. Also - I found, even with 5 tbsp of swerve, it was not enough for 2 cups - that would be a stretch.
I can’t wait to try and surprise my husband. Can I use any instant espresso?
I was looking for a tasty keto version of this coffee, and this is it! I plan on making this drink often either as my morning joe or as a delicious dessert. I actually warm my milk. So good. Thank you!
The PERFECT summer drink! Thank you so much!!!
