Types of Whipped Drinks | Tips for Making Whipped Drinks

In times of uncertainty, many seek some level of escape by gravitating towards the things that provide amusement and comfort. Thanks to the widespread coronavirus-related lockdowns, a food & drink trend that covers both has emerged. Enter: whipped drinks.

Whipped drinks are essentially iced (or hot) milk with a flavored whipped foam on top.

This genre of beverages went viral on TikTok beginning in early March 2020. The fluffy, frothy heads of these concoctions infused with various crowd-pleasing colors and flavors, from Nutella to Froot Loops, create a sense of playful nostalgia. The simplicity of the drinks’ ingredients combined with the achievable aesthetic has inspired slews of social media DIYers to make their own whipped beverages.

Below is a compilation of all the most popular types of whipped drinks…and these are the tools you’ll need to make them.

Dalgona Coffee (Whipped Coffee)

This foamy beverage is the original quarantine drink. It had undoubtedly become the largest kitchen craze during the quarantine period inspiring an entire category of whipped beverages.

Also known as “quarantine coffee,” dalgona coffee originated in South Korea and is named after dalgona, a light and crunchy Korean candy made of sugar and baking soda. It initially gained public recognition on a Korean show, Stars Top Recipe at Fun-Staurant, in January 2020. However, the popularity of this drink skyrocketed globally in mid March 2020 from TikTok.

Here is the recipe for one serving of hot or iced Dalgona coffee:

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons instant coffee (must be “instant” to create foamy texture)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons hot water (simmering)
  • 1 cup milk (or milk alternative)
  • ice cubes (for iced coffee)

Directions

  1. Put instant coffee, sugar and hot water in a bowl and whisk 3-5 minutes or until light brown and fluffy.
  2. Pour warm milk, or add ice to cold milk in a glass.
  3. Add whipped coffee mixture on top of the milk. Enjoy!

Tips for Making Whipped Drinks

How to whip quickly

  • Hand mixers or blenders will help you achieve a whipped texture in the fastest amount of time, usually 1-3 minutes.
  • A whisk takes about 2-5 minutes, when used efficiently (see below).
  • A fork will do if it’s the only tool you have, but be ready to get in a good arm workout since it can take 15-20 minutes.

How to use your whisk efficiently

  • If you have a cylindrical handle, hold the handle of the whisk between your palms and rub your palms together (like you’re making a fire in the woods) so the whisk spins back and forth quickly through the ingredients.
  • If you don’t have a cylindrical handle, just move the whisk back and forth quickly to mix the ingredients.
  • If you’re doing it right, you should only need to whisk for a few minutes.

Required ingredients for whipped texture (pick one)

  • instant coffee (the freeze dried property allows it to whip well, whereas ground coffee beans will not whip well)
  • heavy whipping cream (low fat does not whip well)
  • half and half (decent substitute for heavy whipping cream, but must be ice cold – refrigerate overnight or leave in freezer half an hour before whipping)

Customize your whipped drinks

Don’t be afraid to make your own whipped drinks with beverage flavors you enjoy most.

  • Convert the milk to chocolate milk by stirring in chocolate drink powder or chocolate syrup.
  • Convert your drinks into milkshakes by blending 2 scoops of ice cream in the milk.
  • Dress up your beverage with candies, mini cookies, graham crackers, sprinkles or whatever satisfies your whim.
    Be creative and have fun!
