Pumpkin dalgona coffee – a seasonal twist to the oh-so-delicious dalgona coffee. With pumpkin purée and pumpkin spice this will become your favorite drink of the month!
If there’s anything that says Autumn it’s pumpkins! Do you agree?
I find pumpkins so very versatile. You can make savory dishes such as soup, gnocchi, or risotto, or even something sweet such as cupcakes. But today we’re making a drink with pumpkins. Yes, you heard me, pumpkins inside a drink and not just any drink. We’re using them in dalgona coffee.
Even if it sounds strange, trust me it tastes so delicious.
This is the drink you make for your friends to give them a special coffee experience.
How do you make pumpkin dalgona coffee aka whipped coffee with pumpkin?
Making dalgona is extremely simple. All you need to do is mix equal parts instant coffee, sugar and boiling water (and in the case of this pumpkin dalgona coffee, also a bit of pumpkin spice). Then whip everything for a few minutes until the cream becomes fluffy.
You can make it a smooth cream, like the one on these photos or whip a little bit longer and make the cream stiffer.
Then just pour a glass of milk over a tablespoon or two of pumpkin puree and add top that with the whipped coffee. And you’re done! Simple 🙂
I’m already imagining drinking this under a blanket next to a fireplace. Unbelievable, last week it felt like Summer and this week it’s cold and windy, just like true Autumn.
Pumpkin Dalgona Coffee
- 2 TBSP instant coffee
- 2 TBSP sugar
- 1 tsp pumpkin spice (recipe for homemade pumpkin spice in the notes)
- 2 TBSP boiling water
- 3-4 TBSP pumpkin purée
- 2 cups milk or plant milk
In a small mixing bowl add instant coffee, sugar, pumpkin spice and boiling water.
Using an electric mixer whisk for two to three minutes or until you get a fluffy cream. The more you whisk the stiffer the dalgona.
Onto the bottom of two coffee cups place pumpkin puree, pour over the milk (either hot or cold) and top with the whipped coffee / dalgona.
Serve immediately and enjoy.
