  • 2 tablespoons Instant Coffee good quality brand
  • 2 tablespoons Granulated Sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Hot Water
  • 200 ml Oat Milk use your favorite milk


  • Whisk the coffee, sugar and water together with a hand mixer or milk frother on high speed until the mixture forms stiff peaks.
  • This will take around 5 minutes or less. You can whisk it manually by hand, which takes about 20 minutes. Be prepared though for a tired arm.
  • Warm some milk in a pot and pour into two glasses.
  • Spoon some of the mixture on top and serve.
  • Alternatively, pour your cold milk over ice and put the mixture on top. This is lovely on a warm day.


  • Try using different types of milk like coconut, oat, soy, dairy or almond. We used oat milk which complimented the coffee.
  • You could also put it on top of your favorite Irish cream liqueur.
  • When serving, sprinkle with cocoa powder or cinnamon.
