What is Whipped Coffee
Whipped Coffee is a type of coffee drink that has recently been popularized on social media. It is served cold, and consists of a fluffy, sweet, mocha coloured coffee “cream” served over ice.
Because of the novel creaminess of this coffee drink, and its aesthetically pleasing foamy texture, influencers far and wide are making this coffee and posting it on their stories. Thankfully, it’s easy enough to make, so you too can enjoy creamy coffee bliss.
Ingredients and Equipment
This is a simple recipe. The only ingredients and equipment you’ll need are as follows:
- equal parts hot water, sugar, and coffee (reccomended single serve is two tablespoons, but you can opt for more if you would like multiple servings)
- ice, to serve
- milk, to serve
- small mixing bowl
- a glass
- hand mixer or electric mixer
First, you’ll want to add your hot water, sugar, and coffee to a mixing bowl, small enough for the portion you’re making. After that, it’s really just one step. Whip the ingredients together with a quick motion on the hand mixer or with the electric mixer until they produce the light and fluffy texture you want.
When you’re done, place some ice cubes in a glass, and pour milk over them as desired. Then, spoon your coffee mixture over top. Enjoy!
Sometimes things don’t go as planned! If you’re having trouble achieving the texture you want for whipped coffee, ensure these few things aren’t going wrong.
First of all, make sure your bowl is not too big or your portion of coffee to small. If there’s too much space in the bowl, it will be hard to whip. Doubling up your portion could help.
Next, if you’re hand whipping, make sure you’re moving your hand fast. We want quick, light, circular motions, and your hand should get tired in the process. No pain no gain!
Finally, make sure you’re whipping for long enough, you’ll need to whip the coffee for between 5-15 minutes before you get the texture you want. Using an electric mixer will make it go faster. This one requires patience!
With a little effort and arm strength, you’ll be enjoying your whipped coffee in no time.
