Cloud "Coffee" - Phases 1 and 3
Have ya'll seen the new craze with Cloud Coffee, or Dalgona Coffee? It is whipped instant coffee that you put on top of cold or hot milk/cream. It looks super fun and it seems like every person on my Facebook is making this right now!
Well, I played around with Dandy Blend and after 3 tries, I got it!
Here is what I know so far-
If you use xylitol, you will need to use very hot water so it dissolves. Or whiz it up in a blender first so it is a fine powder.
This is a pretty strong brew. If you do not like strong coffee/Dandy Blend, I would skip it.
I have not tried this with other coffee subs.
I highly suggest putting this on top of almond or coconut milk from a carton. The strong coffee taste needs to have lots of milk to tame it down. You can use unsweetened brown rice or oat milk in phase 1.
I tried using my immersion blender, my stand mixer and my Vitamix. The only way that worked was with a good old whisk and glass bowl. Do not use plastic- you will waste your time.
This is a fun drink, but it is some work.
Makes 1 serving
1 cup almond OR coconut milk from a carton, chilled or warmed
1 cup unsweetened brown rice OR oat milk, chilled or warmed
2T Dandy Blend
2T xylitol powder or stevia equivalent (use sweetener to taste)
1T water- hot or cold (see notes above)
In a very clean glass bowl, whisk the Dandy Blend, sweetener, and water together, then whisk until the color lightens, and the mixture is thick and fluffy. This can take 3-5 minutes.
Spoon onto the top of the chilled or warmed phase appropriate milk and enjoy!
