Mar 30, 2020
Making coffee at home doesn't have to mean you are stuck with bland, black coffee. Though there is nothing wrong with black coffee if that is your preference, there are also all sorts of easy ways to create elaborate, barista-worthy coffees at home. One of the most exciting new recipes is a whipped coffee recipe that has been trending lately.
Also called dalgona coffee, this type of coffee gets its name from a type of caramel South Korean candy known for its fluffy texture. Dalgona coffee has been popular in South Korea for a while, but it is starting to make waves in other countries too.
Whipped coffee first took off after TikTok user imhannahcho created a viral video showing her technique. The original video got over 10 million views, and there are now also several copycat videos showing more whipped coffee recipes.
Whipped coffee is such a big viral trend right now because it is super easy to make at home. With just a few basic ingredients and a little manpower, you can get an Instagram worthy beverage too. So how do you make whipped coffee? All you need is instant coffee, sugar, water, and milk.
You start by mixing together two tablespoons of your preferred instant coffee brand, two tablespoons of sugar, and two tablespoons of hot water. Then continue mixing it vigorously to whip it until it's fluffy, creamy, and smooth.
If you have a frother, making whipped coffee is fast and easy. You can also do it with a basic hand mixer, or you can just whip it by hand. In three minutes or less, it should be ready to go. Once your coffee is creamy and foamy, gently spoon it on top of milk. The whipped coffee will gently melt into your milk, giving you a tasty drink.
Use iced milk for a refreshing beverage, or heat your milk first for a cozy drink. Both versions are delicious! If you're a visual learner, check out a tutorial from Simply Mama Cooks on YouTube. This handy guide will show you every step of making whipped coffee.
One of the great things about this drink is how easy you can customize it. If you're vegan, just use almond, oat, or coconut milk instead. Instagram user tracy.han.ph says she loves adding fun boba spheres to her whipped coffee. Meanwhile, other Instagrammers are drizzling their whipped coffee with chocolate or adding some sprinkles to give it an extra touch.
There are over 21,000 Instagram posts tagged with #dalgonacoffee right now that can give you all sorts of tasty ideas. However, drinks aren't the only thing you can make with this coffee treat.
