Easy Whipped Coffee Recipe
The new trend taking self isolation by storm, whipped coffee or dalgona coffee, named for it’s resemblance to the dalgona candy.
I’ve seen people posting their cute coffee pics all over social media. And being stuck in the house I’ve definitely missed having a little caffeine treat, so I figured I’d give it a try. It is a super easy recipe with stuff I already had in the cabinet, so we’re good to go!
Putting this drink together only takes a few minutes, so you don’t have to set aside too much time for it. If you’d like to make more than one cup, just add one more tablespoon of each ingredient. The rule is 1/1/1 for coffee/sugar/water in this recipe. And if you want to save some for later, pop the mixture in a container with a lid and it should be set for a day or two. I’ll list some commonly asked questions and then the recipe below.
Can you make whipped coffee without sugar?
The short answer to this is, no. Personally,I stay away from as much sugar as I can so this was my first question. I tried to mix the instant coffee and water solo and it never turned into anything but a small mix of dark coffee water. The crystals in the sugar help get the nice froth that we’re looking for, so it is needed. But! You can feel free to use a sugar substitute so long as it has our crystal friends.
Will regular coffee grounds work?
They will not! The instant mixes with the water and coffee grounds will not. I suppose you can try, but it’ll be a crunchy beverage.
Can I use almond/soy/oat/etc milk?
Yes! You can use whatever milk suits you. You’ll be adding the mixture to the top of it so it’s totally up to you.
- Instant Coffee 1 tbsp
- Sugar (or sugar substitute) 1 tbsp
- Boiling Water 1 tbsp
- Milk (or milk substitute) enough to fill whatever cup you’re using
- Boil water and gather your ingredients
- Add ingredients in a bowl and whisk until it gets a light color and gooey texture (if it can hold it’s shape, it’s ready!)
- Fill glass about 75% with milk. You can use warm or cold milk
- Top glass with amount of mixture desired, I do about two teaspoons
- Mix and enjoy!
Alright, and that is it! Easy right? I hope y’all enjoyed this easy how to, feel free to comment below and let me know how your drink came out!
