Whipped Dalgona Matcha
Dalgon-what? I know, if you’re confused, that’s what I said to, but have no fear I’m here to give you the low down on the hot new beverage of quarantine, cue Dalgona coffee.
Dalgona coffee (or fluffy coffee) got its debut on TikTok and quickly made its way to instagram. However, it has actually been around for quite awhile and is a very popular drink in South Korea.
Essentially Dalgona coffee is a coffee drink made of whipped coffee that is poured on top of milk. With me so far? Usually it calls for equal parts of instant coffee, sugar, and boiling water. But what fun is this if you don’t drink coffee? Well that’s where I come in — for all of us non-coffee drinkers, I decided to make a whipped Dalgona Matcha! However, it is important to note that you cannot just switch the coffee for matcha because you will not get that same fluffy texture.
I saw a couple people making it with egg whites (which also works), but to me that did not sound exactly appealing. So, what I used was aquafaba, which is the liquid from a can of drained chickpeas! Crazy, but it works because you can whip the liquid into the same consistency as whipped egg whites.
So what do you say? Will you join the whipped matcha craze?
Ingredients (serving 4)
- Liquid from 1 can of chickpeas
- 1 tbsp Soiree Matcha powder
- 2 tbsp coconut sugar
- 2 tbsp boiling water
- 4 cups non-dairy milk (I like oat)
- Add the chickpea liquid into a bowl and using a hand mixer, beat the liquid until it forms stiff peaks. It will take a minute or two
- In a separate bowl, whisk together matcha, coconut sugar, & boiling water and try to dissolve the sugar as much as possible
- Once dissolved, slowly pour the matcha mixture back in while turning the mixer back on. Beat together until everything is combined
- Fill your glasses with 1 cup of milk of choice and top with the whipped matcha (stir to enjoy)
