If you have been on Instagram lately, you have probably seen the new craze - keto whipped coffee or Dalgona coffee. Being the coffee lover that I am I had to give it a try... and let me be the first to say, I understand the hype.
Dalgona Coffee is a newly popular whipped coffee drink named after a Korean candy. It is served over ice and takes less than 1 minute to make - which adds to the popularity.
You can whip the coffee by hand, but I personally love using my little hand frother that has been a staple in my kitchen since I started keto. With this little gadget that is less than $12, the delgona coffee is ready in about 30 seconds.
My love of keto coffee began back with my bulletproof coffee which has been a staple in my house for over three years now. However Dalgona Coffee is definitely going to give it some competition - especially during the summer months.
Dalgona Coffee also has much fewer calories than bulletproof coffee and is 100% dairy-free. And even better... each whipped coffee has only one net carb. It is a coffee lovers dream come true.
Now one thing I will mention - Dalgona Coffee does have a pretty strong coffee flavor. The instant coffee gives it a very bold flavor - similar to an espresso.
It is best to use the instant coffee, though I have heard you can use brewed coffee as long as you keep it very strong. I also added a pinch of ground cinnamon to the top.
According to Nutritionix, each serving of Dalgona Coffee has 36 calories, 3 g fat, 2 g total carbs, 1 g fiber, making it 1 net carb.
