I saw a video on making whipped coffee, Dalgona coffee, and decided to give it a try. I'm a fan of this new trend because no high-level barista skills are needed. It's super simple and a fun way to bring the coffee shop into the house, especially since we can't get to one right now.
Dalgona coffee, whipped coffee, originated in South Korea from their well-loved street candy and is equal parts of 3 simple ingredients; instant coffee, sugar, and hot water. Put a couple of ice cubes in a glass, pour in some milk, and then place the whipped coffee on top.
I'm a big fan of flavored iced coffees, so I changed the ingredients a bit. Below are the steps for my homemade version of this delicious iced whipped coffee.
1 Tablespoon Instant Coffee
1 Tablespoon Sugar
1 Tablespoon Hot Water
1/2 Teaspoon Flavored Syrup (I used french hazelnut if you don't have syrup try vanilla or almond extract)
1 cup Milk (I used almond milk)
2 Ice Cubes
Time: 20 minutes (You can cut the time by using an electric mixer)
Yields: 1 glass
Step 1: In a mixing bowl, whisk together the instant coffee, sugar, hot water, and syrup. To get my desired whipped cream-like consistency, it took about 15 minutes.
Step 2: In a glass, pour the milk over the ice cubes.
Step 3: Top off the drink with the whipped coffee and enjoy it!
Josh and I both loved this recipe. It was kind of like having a coffee-flavored milkshake. If you're wanting to add even more flavor to this coffee drink, a great addition to the milk would be caramel syrup, like a caramel macchiato, or even chocolate syrup.
Be sure to share your adaptation of this fun homemade whipped coffee recipe.
Until next time,
