I adore lavender coffee. I feel like I’ve sampled every lavender latte Dallas has to offer. I keep homemade lavender sugar in my pantry and it made the most amazing dalgona coffee!
What is dalgona coffee? It’s a whipped coffee drink layered over milk with a 1:1:1 ratio (one part coffee, one part sugar, one part water). The whipped coffee craze has taken over the internet with mixed reviews. Many say it’s too sweet (I disagree) or too difficult but those people are trying to whip it with a spoon (what?!) in a shallow bowl. What in the world? You have to whip this the same way you’d whip cream: either with a hand mixer or with a whisk in a deep bowl with lots of gusto. With a hand mixer, this takes literally two minutes. And look how pretty it is!
You spoon the whipped coffee in a glass filled with milk and ice and, while it’s damn pretty to see the caramel-colored whipped goodness layered with stark white milk, I prefer to drink it all mixed up with the milk. The dalgona makes the milk super thick and creamy when it’s incorporated.
