Whipped Coffee Drink Recipe-2

What goes into a Whipped Coffee Drink?

To make a whipped coffee drink or Dalgona coffee, you need granulated sugar, instant coffee, a splash of hot water and a cup of cold milk. Make sure you use fine instant coffee, often labeled as instant espresso. You can really tell between fine instant coffee and the inexpensive kind.

As for the sugar, I guess you can use a low-calorie sweetener, but I’m not really sure how much froth you’ll get after whipping it. It’s worth a try, though. Last but not least, use your favorite type of milk or plant-based milk alternative.

How to Make a Whipped Coffee Drink?

To make this specialty, you must whisk all the ingredients except for the milk. This will take some time, but the instant coffee, sugar and water will become foamy and frothy, more than you can imagine. Incorporate all the air you can into the mixture.

Once you get a decent amount of foam, pour the milk along the side of the serving glass to let the foam rise nicely to the top.
