Have you jumped on the dalgona coffee bandwagon yet? I have — and I love it! This deliciously creamy drink, which was introduced to many back in January by Korean actor Jung Il-Woo via a television show called “Pyungstorang,” has become quite the pandemic food trend, second only perhaps to bread-baking, with versions appearing all over Instagram and other social media sites. I myself am guilty of posting an image of the easy-to-make drink online, except my version floats atop chocolate oat milk instead of regular because I apparently don’t know how to buy things properly.
My accidental version isn’t the only variation out there, though — people are getting creative with this coffee variation. And now there’s a new version that looks prettier and is even easier to make than the four-ingredient beverage that everyone’s been frothing up: whipped strawberry milk.
One version, posted to Instagram by @sweetportfolio, truly could not be simpler to replicate. It uses one part Nesquik strawberry milk powder to four parts heavy cream, whipped by hand. Put your mixture on top of a glass of milk and you’re all set!

ðWHIPPED STRAWBERRY MILKð¦ð¥â£ â£ âï¸Another alternative to #whippedcoffee… I bring to you Whipped Strawberry Milk made using one of my favorite childhood drinks ever, Nesquik!â£ â£ â¨All you need is 1 tbsp of Strawberry Nesquik and 4 tbsp (1/4 cup) of heavy whipping cream. Mix it until your arm is numb and serve over cold or hot milkð¼â£ â£ ðWhat do you think? Are you sticking to #dalgona coffee or trying one of these alternatives?â£ .â£ .â£ .â£ .â£ .â£ —â£ #dalgonacoffee #whipped #frappe #nesquik #bigbiteszn #asmr #socialdistancing #recipe #recipevideo #asmreating #asmrfood #asmrvideo #recipeoftheday #easyrecipes #recipes #recetas #foodvideo #buzzfeast #tastingtable #huffposttaste #thefeedfeed #foodcoma #wshh #eattheworld #cheatday #sugarrush #teampixelâ£
The original recipe for dalgona coffee uses equal parts instant coffee, water, and sugar; the mix is a bit strong, but it gets diluted when combined with the milk of your choice. A strawberry version doesn’t need such dilution, so the ingredients don’t go into your glass in equal amounts and you don’t have to add more sugar.
Best of all, this version is child-friendly! It’s a perfect treat for young ones, as Instagrammer bev_xo points out:
Of course, this isn’t the only variation that’s popping up. Valentia Mussi at @sweetportfolio also has a recipe for a version that uses cocoa, sugar and whipping cream to create a satisfying chocolate flavor.

And the creativity doesn’t stop there. The blog Totally The Bomb is featuring six different recipes to turn your dalgona coffee into something even more special. Add peanut butter or matcha for different flavor profiles! There’s even a recipe for a strawberry milk, coffee and Oreo cookie concoction.
And over on Instagram, @dapurflo has created a version that looks pretty interesting — it puts the whipped coffee on top of an avocado and milk mix.
