We can’t talk about 2020 food trends without talking about whipped coffee (aka Dalgona Coffee). This traditional South Korean beverage boomed in popularity thanks to Tik Tok’s Dalgona Coffee challenges, and it looks like it’s not going anywhere anytime soon. And for this fall season, we’re sharing a healthy whipped pumpkin coffee recipe you’ll be reaching for all season long.
But first, a little background on whipped coffee actually is.
What is Whipped Coffee & Why is it So Popular?
Dalgona Coffee is made with just three simple ingredients — instant coffee, boiling water, and sugar. You whip them all together and serve this delicious whipped goodness over your milk of choice (yum!)
It takes a whole new spin on how to enjoy the standard cup of coffee, and some even enjoy this as a dessert (that’s how yummy it is.)
Our Healthy Pumpkin-Inspired Spin on Whipped Coffee
While we love the idea of Dalgona coffee, we’ve made a healthy whipped pumpkin coffee that’s both dairy-free and refined sugar-free but still comes with all the flavors whipped coffee brings to the table.
We’ve also added a pumpkin spin because who isn’t craving pumpkin spice this time of year?
The best part? You can enjoy this healthy whipped pumpkin coffee iced or hot. Enjoy this beverage during the early fall months, where you may still be sipping of iced coffee, and then make it hot when you’re craving a warming and comforting beverage once winter comes around.
Healthy Whipped Pumpkin Coffee
- 2 tbsp instant coffee
- 2 tbsp coconut sugar
- 2 tbsp boiling water
- ½ tsp pumpkin pie spice + more for serving
