Yes! Summer is here and the cooler days are officially behind us. This is my favorite season – when the earth is brimming with life and everything is green. This is also the time of year when I switch to iced coffee and I’ve got a tasty dalgona whipped coffee recipe that’s sure to hit the spot on any summer day!
On a side note, today is our Cozy Living Saturday series. Our group decided to postpone it one week due to everything that’s been going on. So be sure to visit my friends’ links at the end of this post to see what June goodness they’ve got planned.
But seriously – doesn’t this coffee look like ice cream? And it’s super easy to make, too. You just need instant coffee, sugar, a little bit of water and ice, and your choice of milk.
Combine your instant coffee, sugar, and water in a mixing bowl and whip til creamy and it holds a foamy texture. Fill your glass a little more than halfway with milk and ice, then add a frothy layer of the whipped coffee on top. It’s that simple!
You can add decoration on top, like coffee beans, chocolate swirls, shredded coconut, cookie crumbles – be creative! Feel free to add a tablespoon of flavored coffee syrup to the milk, too. Doesn’t a glass of dalgona whipped coffee look perfect for summer? See the full recipe below.
Dalgona Whipped Coffee
