Easy Dalgona Whipped Coffee

Dubbed the "quarantine drink," Easy Dalgona Whipped Coffee is just like having Starbucks at home! Instant coffee is whipped with water and sugar into an impressive foam that is layered on top of cold milk of your choice. You can heat the milk for a warm drink and top with whipped cream if desired!
