Learn how to make super fluffy whipped coffee easily at home with the best tips, tricks and just 3 pantry staple ingredients! (Vegan)


  • 1 part // 2 tbsp instant coffee
  • 1 part // 2 tbsp granulated sugar (see notes above for the types of sugars that work)
  • 11.5 part // 2 – 3 tbsp hot water or milk (see tip #2 in the notes above for different ratios of water you can use that changes the texture)
  • milk of choice (about 1 cup per serving // I find cashew milk the best)

Additional Flavours


  1. In a tall glass (I like to use a jar) add in the instant coffee, granulated sugar, any flavourings if using and hot water/milk. Stir until sugar is dissolved. 
  2. Whisk the mixture until frothy (see notes in blog post for best equipment). Depending on the appliance/equipment you use, this can take anywhere from 2 minutes to 5 minutes (see notes). 
  3. For an iced coffee, add ice to a cup, pour milk into the cup and top it off with about 1/3 of the  whipped coffee. For a hot version, heat the milk and then add whipped coffee on top. Stir the frothy coffee throughly into the milk to desired consistently. 
  4. Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 2 days. If you find the bottom of the jar losing its fluffiness, re-whip until frothy again. 


  • For Drip Coffee: Use 2 tbsp of strong espresso + 2 tbsp of sugar and whisk until foamy. 
  • Helpful Equipment: electric hand mixer (my personal favourite), strong milk frother, stand mixer, matcha whisk, whisk, mason jar
  • Nutritional Information Disclaimer: Nutrition information is a rough estimate calculated on an online tool (Cronometer) for just the whipped coffee.
