What’s The Deal With Whipped Coffee?
Whipped coffee is basically an aerated, cloud-like coffee mixture served over milk. The results yield an incredibly creamy coffee drink with a touch of sweetness, and of course, your caffeine kick. Not to mention, its presentation is easy on the eyes, to say the least! A seamless blend of toffee and cream colors create a gorgeous gradient, and an overall beautiful beverage.
Whipped coffee, also known as Dalgona coffee, actually originated in South Korea, but has made its way around the world. In fact, the very word “dalgona” stands for a honeycomb-like candy in South Korea. That said, the coffee mixture, when whipped, reveals a butterscotch-like color and consistency of whipped cream.
Not surprisingly, this new coffee in town has received a great deal of positive attention. Countless videos of people whipping up this beautifully frothy beverage have taken off on social media. We must admit, its soothing, ASMR-like process is low-key super satisfying to watch. Whipped coffee has certainly swept over the states and stirred up a lot of excitement, and for good reason!
Our Clean-Eating Version is Totally Guilt-Free
Our healthy whipped coffee recipe calls for just four clean ingredients. First, you’ll need instant coffee crystals. This is key, because instant coffee’s drying process gives you a foamy consistency that regular coffee won’t. Additionally, our guilt-free coffee recipe subs coconut sugar in for regular sugar. Less processed and more nutritious, coconut sugar beats refined sugar any day.
Finally, hot water and fat-free milk make up the remaining two ingredients on our list! Feel free to use any milk substitute of your choice if you’d prefer a milk-free recipe. Almond milk, coconut milk, or soy milk make great options!
How Do You Make Whipped Coffee?
With just a few painless steps, this whipped coffee recipe is a cinch. Simply combine instant coffee, coconut sugar, and hot water using an electric mixer. Set the mixer to its highest setting and whip until you’ve achieved a creamy consistency. Afterwards, fill your favorite glass up with some ice cubes and your milk of choice. Spoon the frothy coffee mixture on top, and voila! A lightly sweet and savory whipped coffee drink that’s ready in minutes!
Oh and before sipping, snap a quick picture. If anything warrants a Kodak moment, it’s this stunning beverage. We hope you enjoy!
