Mocha Whipped Coffee Recipe

Catch the latest craze, Whipped Coffee with this refreshing single serve iced coconut mocha.  What causes the coffee to whip?  Xanthan gum, a preservative in instant coffee that helps stabilize the coffee, while the hot water sugar mixture adds to a creamy froth. Unfortunately, regular ground or espresso will not whip.  This recipe is quick to make as single serve drink.

How to make Iced Coconut Mocha Coffee

Mix 2 tablespoons boiling water in 2 cup measuring cup, add 1 tablespoon sugar,  and 2 teaspoons instant coffee granules.  Whip the coffee mixture for 2 minutes with whisk attachment or by hand with wire whisk until coffee whips.  I used Organic instant coffee but decaf would also work as well as swerve, keto friendly sugar.  Any instant coffee will work, I just happened to have organic in my pantry.

Whether you want this beverage hot or cold you can decide, but this recipe is served cold.  In an 8 ounce mug or decorative cup, add crushed ice filling half full.  Line the glass with chocolate syrup down the sides of the mug and allow it to pool in the bottom.  Now add the almond milk with coconut extract over the ice.  Last by not least and the highlight of this drink, spoon the whipped coffee over the almond milk.

I like to garnish with grated chocolate or toasted coconut. You can drink this with a straw or spoon it slowly while munching on a cookie.  Easy and fun to drink.  Takes 8 minutes or less to whip up.   Serve with pretty spoon and rolled cookies.

Apparently, this whipped coffee is called Dalgona Whipped Coffee, a Korean sugary sweet that tastes like a honey comb toffee.  You can read more on the link about this new craze and origination.  All I know is it is good and fun to make, sweet and delicious with chocolate.  You can add extracts and ground spices to the whipped coffee too.  Ground cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin pie spice, and other sweet spices would be a great addition, while vanilla, peppermint, coconut, orange, and almond extracts can be added.
