Low Carb Mocha Dalgona Coffee

Whipped coffee has taken the internet by storm. All over Instagram and TikTok, you see people showing off their creamy, foamy coffee drinks.

Dalgona coffee is a popular whipped coffee drink that has been viral all over the internet. It’s popularity orginated in South Korea; however, it’s been a favorite in India for years.

Dalgona coffee can be enjoyed hot or cold. It is a layered drink of cream or nut milk and a smooth coffee foam on top. It is made using instant coffee and a sweetener. To add a chocolate flavor, we add cocoa powder to create a mocha dalgona coffee that is worthy of any coffeehouse brew.

Instant Coffee for Mocha Dalgona Coffee

To make Dalgona coffee you have to use instant coffee. It will not work if you use regular ground coffee. Any type of instant coffee will work – regular coffee or espresso. Avoid any coffees with MCT oils or creamers in them as well. The fats in the creamers and MCT can cause the whip to fall flat and not retain volume. The cocoa powder does this to come extent too. But you will still end up with a whipped coffee consistency.

Sweetener for Keto Mocha Dalgona Coffee

The second main ingredient in Dalgona coffee is sugar; however, traditional Dalgona coffee has 5 teaspoons of sugar to the coffee whip. That equates to 20 grams of carbohydrates.

It’s easy to turn your whipped mocha into a keto friendly mocha dalgona coffee by using alternative sweeteners like monkfruit and erythritol. I have found that the powdered verisons of these keto sugar replacers work the best sicne they dissolve better. The brands I recommend are Lakanto and Swerve.

The sweetener is an essential component to making whipped mocha coffee because reacts with the instant coffee to produce a volume heavy foam.

Milk Options for Keto Whipped Coffee Mocha

Besides coffee and sweetener, the third main ingredient you need to make a keto mocha dalgona coffee is cream or nut milk. Traditionally, dalgona coffee is made with milk; however, milk is higher in carbs compared to more keto friendly options like heavy cream or nut milks. The nut milk I prefer is macadamia nut milk.
I like to use macadamia nut milk because it is creamy, unflavored and contains very low carbohydrates, but you can use all heavy cream or other nut milks. You could even use half and half (although it is higher in carbohydrates).

Other Nut Milk Options:

  • almond milk
  • cashew milk
  • pili nut milk
  • hemp milk

Chocolate Options to Create a Mocha Whipped Coffee

To make a keto mocha dalgona coffee, you need to add 100% unsweetened cocoa powder to yield a chocolately flavor. Make sure you get the 100% unsweetened kind since some cocoa powders tend to loaded with sugar.

If you didn’t want to use cocoa powder, you could try using ChocZero Chocolate Syrup. Their syrups are sugar free and sugar alcohol free. Add 2.5 tablespoons to the instant coffee and it will produce a beautifully whipped coffee. Save 10% off your order with code KETOFOCUS at checkout.

Whisking Dalgona Coffee

I recommend using an electric mixer to whip your coffee foam. It will only take a few mintues to acheive a velvety smooth foam. If you don’t have an electric mixer, you can whisk the coffee by hand. It will just take longer – about 8-10 minutes of constant whisking to produce the stable foam.
