Dalgona Coffee


I know I’m very late with this but I just had to try it as I’ve seen it so many times on my social media feed.

The actual froth contains of 3 ingredients and it takes less than 5 minutes to make (well if you make it by using an electric whisk – there was a viral challange going on where people tried to whip it by hand…. but ain’t nobody got time for that).

It was surprisingly delicious as I thought it might taste overbearingly sweet (and this comes from a person that always have sugar in her coffee). But a little stir and a sip later… my sister pointed out that it’s very similar to those Starbucks ‘ready-to-drink’ coffees you can buy in stores. So I think if you enjoy ice lattes – you will also enjoy Dalgona coffee.

Have you guys tried this? What did you think, was it a yay or nay?
