In honor of the current quarantine trend going on, I decided to share my own take on the wonderful, surprisingly silky Korean Dalgona coffee. Here’s what you will need:

INGREDIENTS (1 serving)

  • 2 tablespoons instant coffee
  • 2 tablespoons hot water
  • 1/2 to 1 tablespoon sugar
    • you do need the sugar in order for that foamy texture to hold its shape
  • milk of choice
    • depending on how strong you like your coffee, you will need anywhere between 150 ml to 300 ml (roughly 3/4 to 1 1/2 cups)
  • ice

INSTRUCTIONS

Step 1

Add the instant coffee, water and sugar in a bowl.

Step 2

Mix all the ingredients together until the mixture gets a mousse like consistency and texture, and the color goes from a dark chocolate brown to a light caramel beige.

Step 3

Get your favorite glass and fill it with ice.

Next, fill the glass 3/4 of the way up with milk.

Spoon the frothy coffee mixture on top of it all and mix everything together before drinking.

I speak 5 languages, but my favorite way to communicate is through the universal language of food. I translate food to be more approachable and accessible for the everyday cook. I didn't grow up with a lot, so I’ve always loved thrifting and finding a good sale. That also shapes my approach to cooking: I try to make most of my recipes as affordable as possible, and that is what my SCRAPS newsletter is about.
