What started as a Tik Tok trend is now a full-blown favorite among coffee drinkers. Made with only three basic ingredients—cold water, white sugar, and instant coffee—it’s hard to imagine that anyone can make a barista-style coffee like this at home. This Minipimer Coffee Cream is made with a simple blend of cold water, sugar, and instant coffee. It's quick and easy to make, and you can customize it to your liking by adjusting the sweetness or adding flavors like vanilla or chocolate. And it’s dairy free too! Enjoy the Coffee Cream as a morning pick-me-up or an afternoon treat—either way, it’s a satisfying way to indulge in your caffeine cravings.

Minipimer Coffee Cream Variations


  • Chocolate Coffee Cream: Add cocoa powder or chocolate syrup to the mix for a rich, chocolatey flavor.
  • Caramel Coffee Cream: Add a drizzle of caramel sauce or dulce de leche to the mix for a sweet, decadent flavor.
  • Vanilla Coffee Cream: Add vanilla extract or vanilla syrup to the mix for a subtle, sweet flavor.
  • Mint Coffee Cream: Add a few drops of mint extract or a sprig of fresh mint to the mix for a refreshing, minty flavor.
  • Almond Coffee Cream: Add almond extract or almond syrup to the mix for a nutty, sweet flavor.


If you prefer, feel free to add milk, coconut milk, almond milk, or oat milk.

For a richer coffee cream, use evaporated milk, heavy cream, or half-and-half.

Use high-quality instant coffee for the best flavor.

You can use any granulated sugar like white sugar, brown sugar, raw sugar, or coconut sugar.

To finish off the Coffee Cream, sprinkle with chocolate chips, cocoa powder, chocolate cake sprinkles, desiccated coconut, or cookie crumbs.

Don’t have a hand blender? You can still make this recipe! Simply add the ingredients (everything must be cold!) to a clean bottle (glass or plastic) and shake the bottle for about 2 – 3 minutes until the mixture thickens.

If making an unsweetened version (without sugar), keep in mind that the coffee cream won’t be as fluffy, and won’t remain fluffy for long. The sugar helps to stabilize the foam.

How to Store Minipimer Coffee Cream

Store the coffee cream in the fridge for up to two days.

Can I Make It Ahead of Time?

This coffee cream is best served immediately while still light and fluffy!


How To Serve Minipimer Coffee Cream

Because the coffee cream is so thick, it’s best served with a spoon. Serve it alongside your favorite cookies or biscuits and use it as dippers.
