This Dalgona chocolate milk is a mix between a chocolate shake, chocolate milk, and chocolate whipped cream. It's the perfect caffeine-free treat for adults and kids, alike!
What is Dalgona 'Whipped' Coffee?
Dalgona coffee is made by whipping together 2 tablespoons of instant coffee, 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar, and 2 tablespoons of hot water, then pouring the whipped coffee mixture over milk. The gluten in the instant coffee helps create a whipped, special coffee treat. This whipped coffee trend started in Korea, and has taken the internet, Tiktok, and other social media by storm during the 2020 quarantine.
Dalgona coffee can be made using 3 methods: frother, mason jar, or whisk.
What is Dalgona 'Whipped' Chocolate?
This take on the Dalgona trend is a caffeine-free, chocolate treat. It is made using a similar method to the Dalgona coffee, but with slightly different ingredients. We are creating the froth/whip by using egg white or aquafaba similar to a meringue.

Note: Dalgona coffee does not need added ingredients like egg white or aquafaba because of the stabilizer additives, often gluten preservative in the instant coffee.
How Long Does it Take to Make Whipped Chocolate?
It takes about 10 minutes to whip up this frothy, chocolate treat. Simple, fun, and way less calories than a chocolate ice cream shake.
Variations on this Whip
Customize this chocolate whip with some of the following fun variations:
- Add a pinch of cinnamon to the whip
- Spike the non-dairy milk with orange liqueur, Kahlua, or Baileys Irish Cream

Aquafaba vs. Egg White
Aquafaba is the thick liquid in a can of chickpeas that you usually drain out and throw away. It is commonly used in vegan baking as a substitute for egg whites and whips up just as well as egg whites in this recipe.
Eating any part of an egg raw can present a health and safety problem, as raw eggs do carry bacteria. If you’d rather not take the risk, buying eggs that have been pasteurized or liquid egg whites in a carton, as these are always pasteurized, is a good compromise.
How to Make a Dalgona Chocolate Milk
To make this chocolate treat, you will need the following:
Take the egg white (or aquafaba) in a bowl and whip the egg white until it is frothy and mostly a stiff, white texture. You can use a whisk, a hand mixer, or a handheld frother. A whisk may take a little longer to get the egg white to the right consistency (photo 2 below)!
Add in the sugar and continue to whip until stiff peaks form and it sticks to your whisk. See photo 2 below for a good example of stiff peak consistency.
Sift in the unsweetened cocoa powder, and thoroughly whisk it into the mixture until fully incorporated (photo 3 above).
Add your chosen milk, dairy or non-dairy, to a cup. Top the milk with the whipped chocolate. Sip, savor and enjoy!
