Whipped coffee (formally known as Dalgona coffee) is the lockdown trend taking over on social media RN – but why should non-coffee drinkers miss out on the all the fun?
Luckily for us uncaffeinated folk, there’s a new drink trend that’s emerging online, and some could argue its even better that the original. Whipped Nutella, anyone?
We’ll let that sink in for a moment.
The incredible creation was first posted by Instagram foodie and professional sweet tooth Valentina Mussi (@sweetportfolio) who shared the easy steps to make it on her channel.
The minimal effort (plus *huge* Insta impact) drink is made using just a spoonful of Nutella and one third of a cup of heaving whipping cream.
Unlike a Dalgona – which sees equal parts instant coffee, hot water and sugar whipped with an electric mixer – this one can be done with just a whisk and some elbow grease.
Simply mix your chocolate spread and cream in a bowl and after a while, it should begin to form a light, foamy cream. Mmm.
Next, simply add a dollop of the mixture on top of a cup of iced milk (a jar-type glass is best if you want to achieve Insta greatness), and decorate with a piece of chocolate.
See how easy it that? The hardest part is probably taking your like-worthy snap.
Valentina says she was inspired by London-based foodie Eloise (@fitwaffle), who created a Nutella Whipped Coffee – a magical hybrid of the Dalgona and whipped Nutella.
To make this, you simply add equal parts instant coffee, sugar and water to a bowl, mix until frothy, and finally add in a dollop on chocolate spread.
See? the possibilities are endless. Now… what to whip next?
