You whip it up until you get a fluffy cloud and then top it over milk, coffee, or even some keto ice cream for a refreshing summer treat.

We tested this easy strawberry milk recipe out a ton of different ways using various sweeteners, milks and here is what we came up with:
- aquafaba for vegan dalgona strawberry (can sub with coconut cream or heavy whipping cream if not dairy-free)
- cream of tartar – helps your strawberry milk gets thick and fluffy
- maple sugar (any granulated sweetener such as coconut sugar or monk fruit sweetener)
- powdered freeze-dried strawberries (can sub with Strawberry Nesquick or any strawberry milk powder)
- 3-4 ice cubes
- unsweetened almond milk: or use any milk you like or have on hand (about 3/4 – 1 cup)
How to make Dalgona Strawberry
- Using a hand mixer or a stand mixer, beat the aquafaba on high speed until it starts to foam up, about 5 minutes.
- Stop the mixer then add the cream of tartar, sweetener and freeze-dried strawberries. Turn your mixer to low and slowly start to beat until the powdered strawberries are incorporated then increase the power to medium until thickened and glossy.
- Fill a stemless wine glass with ice and milk until it’s about 3/4 full.
- Top with whipped strawberry.
TO SERVE COLD:
- Add ice cubes to a large glass and pour milk over the ice. Add a few tablespoons of whipped strawberry and enjoy with a spoon or a straw.
Tips for making the best whipped Dalgona strawberry milk
Do I have to use Strawberry Nesquick?
You can use powdered freeze-dried strawberries or any powdered strawberry milk you like or have on hand.
Do I have to use a hand mixer
No. You can also use a stand mixer (if you’re making a larger batch). Do not try using a regular whisk since it does not always work and will take lots of arm powder and at least 30 minutes to get creamy and thick so I recommend using a hand mixer if you plan on making this whipped strawberry milk a ton while staying indoors.
We tested five different sugars and sweeteners.
The original whipped coffee recipe uses granulated sugar or brown sugar. Since we wanted to make ours paleo with keto and low carb options, we also tried:
- maple sugar OR coconut sugar for a paleo whipped coffee
- granulated monk fruit sweetener, golden monk fruit sweetener and powdered Stevia to make a Keto Dalgona Strawberry version
What milk can I use
The original Dalgona coffee recipe from South Korea uses regular cow’s / dairy milk. For a vegan whipped coffee, we used:
- unsweetened almond milk (our favorite is Malk Organics or Elmhurst)
- any other plant milk: oat milk or unsweetened cashew milk would work as well
