Happy Friday everyone!
I decided to try this Viral Dalgona Coffee , Whipped coffee recipe. By no means is this the healthiest coffee option but I did substitute a few ingredients to at least make it plant based. I substituted the regular milk for Cashew milk, and used one tsp of sugar instead of two. It took a few attempts to get the right fluffy whipped coffee.
Cashews are one of my favourite nuts. The Cashew nut is a native to Brazil known for its light flavour and health benefits. Like most nuts, cashews provide an excellent source of protein. Cashew oil rich in selenium, zinc, magnesium, iron and phosphorous. Also, they are great sources of phytochemicals, proteins and antioxidants. Cashews Are Rich in Heart-Healthy Fatty Acids and heart-healthy monounsaturated fats. The rich fat content of cashews makes them a perfect substitute for heavy cream. This makes Cashew cream the perfect base for so many vegan alternatives. My favourite is Cashew Queso.
The key for me was using hot water prior to whipping it.
Here is everything you will need to make your own Dalgona Coffee:
2 Tsp of Instant Coffee ( I used Nescafe Gold)
1 Tsp of Granulated Sugar
2 Tsp of Boiling Hot Water
Hand Mixer or Whisk
1 cup of Cashew milk
In a large bowl, add instant coffee, sugar and hot water. Mix to desolve coffee. Then I used a hand mixing on medium speed for 3 minutes until I got a whipped consistency.
Add ice cubes to your favourite glass and add your milk. With a ice cream scoop top with your Whipped coffee. Enjoy!!
This coffee was very strong so I mixed the coffee into the milk to balance it out. Super good!
Has anyone else tried this Whipped coffee trend??
Have a great weekend!
