This very simple and easy recipe to make a light and frothy coffee has been inundating the internet…and only requires three ingredients.
It was so funny when I saw so many of dalgona coffee recipes on the internet, which is nothing more than whipped coffee I just laughed…laughed because my aunt used to make this all the time using a simple fork when we were living in Brazil…more than 30 years ago…
I topped the coffee foam on a cup of Oatsome milk with a few ice cubes…it was so delicious, the combination of creamy coffee with oat milk…tasted like dessert in a cup.
Oh, before I continue, this was my first-time trying oat milk as I got an invitation to try Oatsome from BetterBody Food.
I received a sample of Oatsome for review purpose and I was not financially compensated for this post, all the opinions are completely mine own based on my experience.
– What is Oatsome?
Oatsome is an alternative for dairy milk, it is organic, non-GMO and gluten free. It tastes delicious and you can use in your baking, coffee…it is somehow creamy and yes, taste great.
– Do I personally like Oatsome?
Yes, it is creamy and super delicious, and it sure can substitute milk in every possible way. It is something that I would buy, especially that my husband is lactose tolerant.
– What is dalgona coffee?
Dalgona coffee according to the internet was originated from South Korea…really? As I mentioned above, my aunt was making this whipped coffee more than 30 years ago…
This coffee is made by simply whisking 3 ingredients: instant coffee, sugar and boiling water, using an equal proportion.
– Why is dalgona coffee different from the others?
The whipped coffee is super light, fluffy, velvety and it is placed on top of cold milk…therefore mimicking as iced latte or cappuccino…sort of it…and yes, you can make it with hot milk.
– How long does the dalgona coffee last?
Using same proportion of the three ingredients will get you a pretty stable coffee foam. In my experience the stability of the foam will decrease by decreasing the amount of sugar.
– What do I use to whisk the coffee?
You can use all kind of kitchen tools from a simple fork to hand mixer…I personally used my milk frother stick. Just keep whisking until stiff peaks.
– Should we look at this popular whipped coffee?
- 2 tablespoons instant coffee
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 tablespoons boiling water
Mix all the three ingredients in a small bowl and whip.
Whip until a stiff peak form.
Serve over ice milk or hot milk of your preference, such as oat milk, soymilk, almond milk, rice milk and so on…delicious over vanilla ice cream…it is a must try!
