In my previous post I have shared much about Dalgona Coffee. You guys learnt much more about this specific version of two-toned coffee which is so easy to make. Yup! we also learnt about its history and origin. As we know that, this beverage is named after a South Korean candy, Dalgona (Honeycomb) or Ppopgi because the Coffee froth resembles the foam that is formed while preparing the dalgona when its constituents are mixed together.
However, it also claims that the Dalgona Coffee is not a brand-new innovation instead it is the same as the Indian “Beaten coffee”. The only difference between the Dalgona Coffee and Indian “Beaten coffee” is in the preparation. In the making of the Dalgona Coffee, iced milk is used, and the coffee froth is poured on the top of the milk compared to the Indian version which is prepared using the hot milk, and the froth is placed at the bottom of the glass.
So, now you have known much about this so called trending coffee but this is not the main topic to be concerned in my this post. Today we are going to know about different variants of Dalgona Coffee.. Yes!! you all have heard correct.
so without wasting much time, here I’m going to disclose the other types/ variations of this (Dalgona) coffee.
Variants of the Dalgona Coffee:
As the trend went viral, people worldwide are experimenting with the original recipe and sharing their versions of the Dalgona coffee. Here are the few different variants of the Dalgona Coffee…
Matcha Dalgona also called green tea latte, is a dalgona variant that contains the light and fluffy matcha foam floating on top of the latte. It is different from the standard dalgona coffee as its main ingredient is Matcha, which is green tea powder, instead of coffee powder.
To make the Matcha dalgona, first, you have to prepare the foam topping. To make the foam, take an egg white and beat it until it turns light and fluffy. Next, take a quarter cup of sugar and the same quantity of water in a pan and put the pan on the stove. Heat the mixture gently to prevent crystallization. Transfer this mixture of sugar and water in the same bowl containing the beaten egg white and beat the mixture again. Continue beating until you notice the mixture has turned shiny. Next, add one tablespoon of matcha powder, and Dalgona Matcha is ready to serve.
Here I’m sharing a video tutorial, so that you will be able to understand the preparation method of Matcha Dalgona along with classic Dalgona coffee.
I hope that, now you all have undrestood the basic difference in the preparation method of these two variants of this much viral Dalgona. Now we have to move ahead to know about the other variants.
This variant of dalgona coffee is prepared using instant coffee, white sugar, hot water, milk, and milo powder. To prepare the coffee froth, mix two tablespoons of instant coffee, two tablespoons white sugar, two tablespoons of milo powder in a small bowl. Next beat the mix either manually or using the electric mixer until it turns foamy. After that, pour the froth on the top of the iced milk.

Dalgona Milk Tea
Dalgona milk tea is very popular these days and it is easy to make too. The recipe involves a cup of milk, a tablespoon of white granulated sugar, half cup tea, baking soda, and water. Start the procedure by making sugar candy. To make sugar candy, take a pan and add sugar. Melt the sugar on low flame and keep stirring so the sugar does not burn. When the sugar starts caramelizing, slowly add a pinch of baking soda and continue stirring. Upon the addition of baking soda, it will turn into thick, fluffy and light-coloured syrup. Transfer the syrup on a butter paper and allow it to dry until it becomes hard candy. Roughly break the candy into small pieces. To serve Dalgona milk tea, take a glass and pour cold milk and tea in it. Add some ice cubes and candy on top and enjoy.
Strawberry Milk Dalgona
Strawberry milk Dalgona is a latte containing the fresh strawberry chunks placed at the bottom of the glass.

To prepare coffee, add coffee powder and white sugar in hot water and whisk it until it becomes fluffy. Take a glass. Place small strawberry chunks at its bottom. Then add ice cubes and milk. You can also crush the strawberry. Finally, top the milk with fluffy coffee foam, and Strawberry milk Dalgona is ready.
Oreo Milk Dalgona
Just like Strawberry milk dalgona, Oreo milk Dalgona is very easy to make and recipes are almost the same, except you will need Oreo biscuits to make it instead of strawberry chunks. First, make the coffee by mixing a tablespoon of instant coffee powder, sugar, and hot water. Whip the mixture until it becomes light and foamy. For serving, take a glass. Add ground Oreo biscuits at the bottom of the glass followed by ice cubes and cold milk. Add foamy coffee on top and you have a glass of delicious Oreo milk Dalgona prepared in less than ten minutes.
Add chocolate sauce or cocoa powder to your coffee mug and then pour hot milk and gentley give it a mix using a teaspoon. Now add the prepared Dalgona for an one inch layer. Cocoa powder and shredded chocolate can be placed over the Dalgona at the top.
