Apparently we should be forgetting about our iced coffees and cappuccinos!

The latest caffeine trend going around at the moment is something called ‘whipped coffee’ and honestly we don’t know how we feel about it.

Also known as dalgona coffee originating in South Korea, whipped coffee is pretty simple to make. The name comes from the fact that you actually whip together instant coffee, sugar and water and then spoon the fluffy, cloud-like mixture on top of milk.

While it looks kind of cool and insta-worthy, we also can’t help but notice the resemblance to, you know, a baby’s number two… Like it’s a little bit of a turn off!

Like you can’t tell us that this looks good while it’s being spooned onto the milk..?

But apparently despite the look, it tastes really nice and has become an incredibly popular way to have your morning brew.

The whipped coffee trend went viral thanks to a TikTok video that has been viewed over 10 million times now.

Since then, people have been trying it out for themselves and sharing their own creations on social media.

Dalgona coffee – the coffee that is taking internet by storm. DAL-GO-NA – the word actually comes from a South Korean street food snack, which is a toffee like candy and the batter of it is very similar to the look and taste of this coffee. That is where it gets the name from! I had to make it and see for myself what was all the buzz about! It did blew my mind. It is so simple, so yum and so satisfying! . . Guys, the recipe is so simple. All you need is : Instant coffee – 2tbsp (Any brand is fine! I used Bru instant coffee) Sugar – 2tbsp Warm water – 2tbsb Milk and some ice. . Procedure : In a mixing bowl, add coffee, sugar and warm water. Whisk it until you get soft peaks. You can use a hand blender/stand mixer if you've access to them. I used a regular whisk and it took me 25 minutes to get those soft peaks. In a glass add milk, some ice and top it up with this blended mixture. That's all. It is soft, silky, creamy, delicious coffee! And totally worth it! ❤️

Despite or original disgust at the look of the drink, we’ll probably give it a go TBH. Gotta keep ourselves entertained in isolation somehow right?
