Dalgona Matcha, three recipes: classic, eggless, vegan

Dalgona matcha is a delicious fluffy matcha milk based on the very popular dalgona coffee, which uses instant coffee instead. Dalgona coffee is the well-known Korean coffee-based drink that has become very famous all over the world also thanks to Tik Tok.

Matcha Dalgona is a greener and healthier option. It tastes like matcha latte but with a thick and creamy airy texture that’s velvety and rich.

We have tried for you different versions and we want to share with you three different ways of preparing a fluffy dalgona matcha. 

The first one is the most classic dalgona matcha using egg whites, then an eggless version of dalgona matcha where we used cream instead of egg whites and for the third option we tried a vegan dalgona matcha recipe. So, what will be you favourite?

PRO TIP!
The following recipes can be prepared HOT or COLD!

The instructions are for you to prepare cold drinks, however you can warm the milk – and obviously avoid the ice – to make them hot so that you can enjoy dalgona matcha in cold winter days too!

 

Egg White Dalgona Matcha

INGREDIENTS for 4 cups

  • 8 g of matcha powder – “Emerald” grade

INSTRUCTIONS


1 - PREPARE THE SYRUP
Mix the sugar with 60-80 ml of boiling water and stir until the sugar dissolves. Leave aside.

2 - WHIP EGG WHITES
Put the egg whites in a large bowl and whip the eggs on high until they start to turn frothy then slowly pour in the syrup while beating on high. Whip until the eggs start to turn white and form soft peaks.

3 - ADD MATCHA POWDER
Sift the matcha powder on the eggs then continue to whip on high until smooth and creamy. Don’t over whip or the eggs will turn into a stiff meringue and the dalgona matcha won’t flow.

4 - SERVE
Fill two glasses with ice and pour in your milk of choice. Top the glasses with a generous amount of fluffy matcha. Stir thoroughly and serve immediately.
