THE FOLLOWING IS THE FIRST OF TWO METHODS
- Basic Whipped Coffee
- Instant coffee
- Hot water
- Milk (or plant-based milk alternative)
- Extra Creamy Whipped Coffee
- Instant coffee
- Hot milk
Method 1 of 2:
Basic Whipped Coffee
1 Add instant coffee, sugar, and hot water to a bowl.
Choose a bowl that’s just large enough to stir your ingredients, which will make it easier to create a foam.
Use measuring spoons to add 2 tbsp (12 g) of granulated instant coffee, .5 tbsp (6 g) of sugar, and 2 US tbsp (30 mL) of hot water to the bowl.
If you want a sweeter coffee, use up to 2 tbsp (24 g) of sugar.
Make sure your water is hot, not warm. Hot water will create a smoother cream, which will combine well with your milk.
2. Use a whisk to whip the coffee until it turns creamy. Your coffee mix should turn foamy within the first minute of mixing.
Continue to whip the mixture until it turns frothy and then creamy. It should look like mousse when it’s ready to be mixed into the milk.
If you don’t want to whip the coffee by hand, you can use a hand mixer to do it faster.
3 Add ice to a glass and fill half the glass with milk.
Place a few ice cubes in the bottom of your glass. Then, pour your milk over the ice. Use about 4 to 8 fl oz (120 to 240 mL) of milk, depending on the size of your glass and your preferences.
If you want a warm drink, use hot milk instead of cold.
If you prefer, it’s okay to use your favorite plant-based milk in your whipped coffee. For instance, almond and oat milk both work well.
You may want to use extra coffee cream if you’re using a lot of milk. Adjust the recipe to your preferences.
4 Spoon the coffee cream over your glass of milk. Scoop out a dollop of whipped coffee and place it into your glass.
Add as much coffee as you like to the milk.
For an easy option, fill half your glass with milk and half with coffee cream.
If you prefer stronger coffee, add more coffee cream than milk.
If you want weaker coffee, add more milk than coffee cream.
5 Stir the coffee into your milk to combine them. Use your spoon to gently stir the coffee cream into the milk to blend them together.
Taste your whipped coffee to see if you like it. Adjust your coffee-to-milk ratio if you like.
