The magical unicorn version of coffee for the internet?
Since the pandemic, this is all I have seen on my newsfeed. Friends and family posting their beautifully whipped coffees.
"What was this? ", I asked myself. Somehow this lured me into the TikTok world of whipped coffee aka dalgona coffee.
So, I did some homework and decided before I gave it a whirl, I would first get the essentials to get this recipe right the first time.
There were a few steps to perfecting this whipped caffeinated treat. Some people said it called for a whisk and about four to five minutes of whisking.
This is a hard pass from me. So the first step is as follows.
Step 1. Ordering a milk frother.
Yes, I am a lazy baker. I prefer to have convenience at my fingertips. After seeing people explain how many minutes it took to whip this delicious drink I said "nope". Soon after I ran off to my happy place, the Amazon portal. I ordered my whisk after looking over many reviews. And settled for quick, waterproof, and affordable.
Step 2. See what coffee I had available to make this almost whipped dessert.
Step 3. Make it. That's right folks, I was ready to make this famous whipped coffee!
Following this simple recipe, you can achieve the perfect dalgona coffee.
2 Tbsp Boiling Water
2 Tbsp Sugar
2 Tbsp Instant Coffee
Add all three ingredients into a deep bowl. Whip with a whisk, blender or milk frother until your coffee has almost doubled in height. It will become light and airy. The consistency of a light brown caramel color once you have whipped enough air into it.
Preparing the glass
1/2 to 1 Cup Milk (of your choice e.g oat milk, almond milk)
1 Tbsp Chocolate Syrup
Prepare the glass you are going to use by drizzling the chocolate syrup around the inside in and up and down motion.
Add your ice, milk, and then place the whipped coffee on top.
Add a spoon then stir, sip, and enjoy.
Now, this drink does not have to be served with ice. If you prefer to drink this coffee hot, prepare the milk as if you were making a latte, and then add the whipped coffee on top.
I decided cold milk wasn't enough so I added about 1 Tbsp Chocolate Syrup for coating the sides of my coffee cup. It reminded me of a non-alcoholic mudslide when I was done putting it together. You may also add a hint of Kahlua if you feel inclined to do so.
Just remember you can use any ingredients you have laying around even if that means regular hot cocoa mix, espresso powder, latte mix, etc.
Be creative and have fun!
