Yesterday was day 31 of social distancing for my family and I. I noticed that my husband and I have been making a lot more coffee at home, anything from espresso to lattes and frappes. If you are missing lattes from back when drive-thrus and coffees at Target were part of normal life, hope this recipe for Homemade Latte with Whipped Coffee will make up even a little bit for it.

Whipped Instant Coffee
I know the Dalgona coffee is all the rage right now and it does have the whipped coffee in common with the way I do my frappe or my latte. However, whipping instant coffee is not new for me. We used to whip coffee like this since I was a tween. It’s very common in the Mediterranean region seeing as Frappe originated in Greece.
But you can use whipped coffee on anything, cold milk, hot milk, water and ice etc etc.
Instant coffee has a great quality that mixed with some water and if you like sugar, it will turn into a creamy substance that is perfect for frothy coffees.
There are so many brands of instant coffee, they vary by country even. I grew up with Nescafe so this is the coffee I use.
Recipe Tips & Notes
You’ll have this coffee made in 2-3 minutes tops. Here are my tips, see recipe card below and video for a visual presentation.
I love frothy milk so I use a frother for the milk while I whip the coffee. See below a milk frother similar to the one I use but there are a lot more models in the market.
To whip the coffee – you can just use a cup and spoon or a mixer. I would only use the mixer if you are making a lot of coffees at once, however for just 1 latte I prefer just whipping with a spoon. See video demonstration below .
Homemade Latte With Whipped Coffee
- Milk Frother
- 1 cup milk
- 2 tbsps instant coffee
- 1 tbsp sugar adjust quantity to taste
- 1 tbsp water
- Warm up milk (my frother warms it up too by not enough for my taste).
- Add milk to frother and let the machine whip it up.
- Get a small cup, add instant coffee, sugar and water. Use a spoon and start whipping it up for a minute or two really fast until you get a light brown creamy consistency.
- Add the whipped coffee to coffee mug. Then pour over the frothed up milk. Repeat the process with the milk if you like a lot of froth in your latte. Otherwise just pour over the left over warm milk. Mix well and serve right way! Enjoy:)
- Calories are estimated using 1 serving (1 cup 2% milk, 2 tbsps Nescafe and 1 tbsp sugar). If you’ll add syrups, whipped cream or replace sugar for let’s say stevia, the calories and carbs will vary.
