Jelena’s Current Obsessions

What’s a Dalgona? Besides, being pretty to look at, is a frothed coffee drink also known as a magical cappuccino or beaten coffee. It tastes great, and Jel’s been having a moment making hers using Boketto LAB Matcha— but you can 100% go the classic, coffee route, too! Both recipes are below…


1 egg white or 2 tbsp aquafaba liquid
1 tbsp granulated sugar (or sweetener of choice)
2 tbsp Organic Ceremonial Grade Matcha Powder
1 c milk, whatever variety
Ice cubes (optional)
You will also need a milk frother, or similar


  1. Make Meringue Using your frother, beat the egg whites or aquafaba in a small mixing bowl until the mixture is mostly stiff. Add the sugar a little at a time while you keep on beating the mixture. Continue whipping this mixture until it forms stiff peaks form and sticks to the beaters. Some people who do not care for meringue use whipped cream instead. This also makes the recipe easier ;-)
  2. Add Matcha Powder A little at a time, sift the matcha powder into the beaten, sweetened egg white. Stir this mixture gently to avoid deflating the egg whites. Don't add any matcha powder until the egg whites are fully whipped or the matcha powder will keep the eggs from fluffing up fully. Espresso can be substituted for Matcha.
  3. Assemble Put ice cubes in your glass and pour your chosen kind of milk over the ice. Scoop the whipped foam on top of the milk, add enjoy.
Your Matcha Dalgona can easily be customized by adding a little vanilla or another flavored extract to the milk or even to the whipped frothy topping. Alternatively, you could give a shake of cinnamon or nutmeg over the top of your drink before you serve it. Or play around with various sweeteners and non-dairy milk to make this beverage your own. 

2 tbsp granulated sugar
2 tbsp finely ground Zen Bunni Biodynamic Coffee
2 tbsp cold water
Ice (optional)
1 c milk, whatever variety
You will also need a milk frother, or similar


  1. Mix sugar, coffee and water vigorously whisk until mixture turns silky smooth and shiny, then continue whisking until it thickens and holds its lofty, foamy shape. (If whisking by hand, it will take 8 to 12 minutes to get to optimal fluffiness.)
  2. Fill a glass most of the way full with ice (optional) and milk, then dollop and swirl the whipped coffee mixture on top, mixing before drinking, if desired.
  3. If you're feeling fancy, top the foamy drink with cocoa powder or cinnamon.


In both recipes, there's room to play around: fine tune your coffee/matcha to sugar ratio, making the coffee stronger if you prefer. Of course you can use different kinds of milk to change up the flavor of your coffee— anything goes from oat milk to coconut cream. Coconut sugar is also an excellent substitute.
