What is dalgona matcha?

Have you seen how much dalgona coffee is blowing up online right now? Dalgona coffee is essentially whipped coffee! It’s made with equal parts instant coffee, sugar, and hot water that are whisked together to create a frothy coffee mixture and then poured over iced milk. I have been so into it, and have tried my hand at it a few times now.

However, though I love coffee, I far prefer the lower caffeine content in matcha versus instant coffee! Matcha is a green tea powder, and dalgona matcha is simply a whipped iced matcha latte! I’ve seen this made several times online, but matcha doesn’t whip quite as coffee does. So to match the texture, it’s typically made with egg white to make a fluffy matcha meringue.

I decided to try my hand at making dalgona matcha without the egg or dairy to make a totally dairy-free, vegan, paleo/AIP version! And trust me… it’s delicious.

What you need for this recipe

Matcha powder

Matcha is a green tea powder. I like ippodo tea, but use what you have!

Coconut cream

My favorite brand is arroy d, but you can easily use whatever coconut cream you have, or just place a can of coconut milk in the fridge overnight. Be sure to only use hardened coconut cream to make sure it whips.

Coconut sugar

Or another sugar alternative of your choice.

Dairy-free milk & ice

Almond or coconut milk will work, but it’s really up to you!

How to make dalgona matcha (without egg!)

  • Add the boiling water to a medium-sized bowl. Sift the matcha over the water to break up any clumps in the matcha. Use a wooden matcha whisk or a handheld milk frother to combine the matcha and water. A thin, green paste should form.
  • Add the coconut sugar and cream to the matcha mixture. Use a whisk to whisk by hand or an electric whisk to combine until the coconut cream reaches a thick and creamy texture. Set aside.

  • Add the ice and milk to a glass (it should be a little over 2/3rds of the way full). Spoon the whipped matcha over the milk. Use a spoon or straw to lightly stir to combine the two when ready to drink.

What brand of matcha should you use?

I like the brand ippodo tea. However, use whatever matcha powder you like!

Can you use coconut milk instead of coconut cream?

You’ll definitely need coconut cream for this recipe rather than coconut milk to get the whipped, fluffy consistency! If you can’t find coconut cream near you, simply place a can of full-fat coconut cream in the fridge overnight to allow the cream to harden. Only use the hardened cream on top.

What can you use to whip the coconut cream?

You can either use a whisk to whisk it by hand (which will take a lot longer) or an electric hand mixer. The electric hand mixer is obviously much easier and will break up any hard pieces of coconut cream faster.
