Malted Mocha Dalgona Coffee

I never liked coffee until I was well into my 30's, but now I hardly know how I lived without it. I think what I never liked were the plain coffee drinks. I like mine fluffy and fabulous, like this malted mocha Dalgona coffee drink. It's refreshing and delicious and perfect for any time of the day.

What is Dalgona Coffee?

Dalgona coffee may be the best thing to come out of 2020. Maybe. This whipped instant coffee became famous on TikTok and people bored and at home decided to whip {literally} some up. It's been a hit ever since.

How do you make Dalgona Coffee?

Dalgona coffee is basically made by whipping equal amounts of instant coffee powder, sugar and hot water until it becomes creamy and then adding it to cold or hot milk.

Dalgona Coffee Variations

I'm always up for a good variation of an old favorite, plus I'm more of a sweet drink drinker so this malted mocha Dalgona coffee is my jam!

Don't miss this Dalgona Whipped Cinnamon Coffee I shared a few months ago!

What is Malted Milk Powder?

You all probably know all about malted milk balls that you sneak into the movie theater, am.I.right? My grandparents used to own an ice cream shop, and my mom grew up working at it as a kid. My mom made the best milkshakes. Secret ingredient? You guessed it...malted milk powder.  

Malted milk powder actually started way back in the day as a nutritional supplement for babies. A genius dude in Chicago named Ivar "Pop" Coulson worked as a soda jerk at a Walgreens and started using the powder in milkshakes. 

Eaten plain {I know you'll sneak a taste}, malted milk powder is kind of gross, but when it's mixed into ice cream or milk, it adds just the perfect hint of sweetness.

Not a fan of Dalgona coffee? Mix in strong brewed coffee or espresso but give the malted milk a try! Just a few tablespoons go a long way! If you've never tried it before, I think you're going to like it.
