You’re probably wondering what in the world Dalgona Coffee is. Basically it’s whipped coffee which you can serve hot or cold. I prefer it cold topped with whipped cream!
I know topping whipped coffee with whipped cream seems, well, over the top. But I love my iced coffee sweet and the whipped cream adds that extra sweetness my sweet tooth craves.
Aside from feeding my caffeine and sugar addiction Dalgona Coffee gives me a good reason to put my handheld immersion blender to good use. I’d gotten one for Christmas a few years ago and seldom get to use it, that’s probably because I forgot I had one.
Anyway if you don’t have an immersion blender you can use a hand mixer or whip it the gold old fashioned way with a whisk. Just be prepared to whisk for about 20 minutes or so to get a really good consistency. Or you could order your immersion blender from amazon by simply clicking here!
