I’m not even about to go out there and say I’m awesome enough to have come up with this recipe all on my own. Nope, I got the original recipe from Tasty.Co
I wanted to try this because, let’s face it. Quarantine and Stay at Home is great for the world, but occasionally Mommy needs some coffee and not being around the kiddos.
Well, I haven’t figured out how to totally get away from the kiddos. Headphones are pretty good, for the most part.
I’m lucky, my kids are older and don’t require constant supervision.
They do, however make a fair amount of noise.
But I digress.
I heard about the Whipped Coffee online and I wanted to try it for myself.
It seemed easy enough, and I have a basic, simple kitchen knowledge, I can usually make about anything, if I have a recipe.
So I went online and quested for one. Found it pretty quick and easy too–and look at that, it’s really easy too.
Easy Whipped Coffee*
- 1/4 cup of Instant Coffee
- 1/4 cup of Sugar (you can use sugar substitutes if you want)
- 1/4 cup HOT water (Some recipes say “boiling” but I just ran water through my coffee pot, and that was hot enough)
- Put all in a bowl. Mix until fluffy and it thickens up.
- Serve over very cold milk and ice (if you want). The coffee flavor is strong, so stir it up when you drink!
See? I told you that was simple.
I have seen several versions of how to mix it all up.
Personally? I use a hand mixer, because, well, I’m impatient, and I like it to be thicker. I tried an emersion blender, and while it worked, it wasn’t very thick. I wanted it to have more of a whipped cream texture. With the emersion blender, it was more of a semi-melted ice cream texture.
Also, for the milk. You can use whatever kind of milk you like. Me? I went with unsweetened Almond Milk with Vanilla, due to some stomach issues. You know Leonard on Big Bang Theory? We have a similar issue, lol. So Almond milk works for me. It’s what I would get at Starbuck’s anyway. 🙂
As far as the sweetener, use what you like–I have even tried it adding a little bit of brown sugar with my granulated sugar, just because I like that flavor that brown sugar has.
Also, keep in mind, because it’s all equal proportions, you can make a larger or smaller batch very easily.
Anyway, I hope my little recipe gives you a taste of the coffee shop at home, and you enjoy.
