Servings 4 servings


  • 3 tbsps. Nescafe instant coffee
  • 3 tbsps. cane sugar
  • 3 tbsps. hot water
  • 32 oz. whole milk or milk of choice
  • ice cubes


  • In a medium shallow bowl, place the instant coffee, sugar and water.
  • Using an electric or hand whisk, whisk the coffee until it obtains a super creamy and fluffy texture. If you are using an electric whisk, it should take about 5 minutes to get the desired result. Hand whish will take double or triple the time.
  • Once the coffee has whipped up, add some ice cubes to an 8 oz cup and fill 3/4 of the way through with milk. Then top with the whipped coffee.
  • Stir to combine the milk and the whipped coffee. You can add more sugar as desired.


  • Use equal parts of ingredients for best result. 1:1:1 ratio on the water, sugar and instant coffee.
  • Use an electric whisk or mixer to get it done faster and obtain the best and creamiest fluff.
  • Use hot water instead of cold.
  • Use full fat milks, half and half cream or plant based milks like coconut milk, oats milk or almond milk.
  • Whisk ingredients in a deep bowl to prevent splatters and allow the coffee to gain it's fluff.
  • Store in the fridge for up to 5 days at it's best.
