- 2 tbsp instant espresso or coffee
- 2 tbsp sugar feel free to adjust to taste
- 2 tbsp hot water
- 1 cup milk I highly recommend coconut milk
- Add coffee, sugar, and hot water to a small mixing bowl.
- With a hand mixer, beat for 3-4 minutes until the coffee mixture becomes light and fluffy. Be sure to scrape the edges and incorporate all ingredients well!
- Use the whipped coffee to top a glass of milk with a few ice cubes.
I haven’t posted much because I haven’t been sure what to say, to be honest. We’re in the throes of a global pandemic and keeping up with a blog schedule just wasn’t a high priority while we were initially navigating this situation. We are lucky to have been able to transition to work and school from home and we’re isolating as instructed. Obviously being stuck at home for a month isn’t ideal for anyone, but the silver lining of more time gaming and crafting and cooking together has been nice. The garden is finally getting weeded and seeds are shooting up. It has been important to me to be honest with our son about the pandemic, especially in terms of school for him (this has been his best year yet and his grades have been really wonderful). At the same time, I want to keep things as normal as we can too, and things like keeping on our regular schedules and reaching out to friends for video calls and online gaming together has helped.
I have enjoyed seeing the various food and cooking trends popping up lately, between this delicious whipped coffee and all of the baking bread! This coffee recipe is perfect for you if you have a hard time with the iced coffee drinks that are often too sweet or contain flavors that don’t always mesh or leave a funny aftertaste. I love the hint of coconut and the slight sweetness (I found I prefer less than the recommended amount of sugar but this can be adjusted to taste) in the whipped portion is just right!
Dalgona coffee has become so popular it even has its own Wikipedia entry now, detailing the history and rise in popularity. The drink became well known recently in South Korea, but you can find similar versions in India and Greece too.
Food, even if sharing recipes from a distance, can be such a great connection and of course, comfort food is named as such for a reason! It has also been reassuring to see across social media the outpouring of support for the most vulnerable in our communities – people offering to make grocery store trips for those who are unable to risk going out right now, for instance.
We hope you are doing the best you can, being gentle with yourself during all of the stress and limitations we’re now under, and staying safe too!
