DALGONA COFFEE - WHIPPED MUSHROOM COFFEE

There has been a new trend immersing around whipped coffee, also known as Dalgona Coffee. Recently, we’ve all been staying home and local coffee shops have been closed - which has led to people experimenting at home to get their favourite coffee kick! We tried it and we LOVE it with our mushroom coffee blend, Shroom Coffee - so here’s a recipe our friend Del created.


WHIPPED COFFEE? 

If you haven’t heard of Dalgona Coffee before, let us explain. It is a beverage created by whipping instant coffee with sugar and hot water until it turns thick and creamy. Then pouring on-top of iced milk to form a thick milky coffee! 


HOW TO MAKE DALGONA COFFEE

It may sound complicated but it is anything but! All you need is:

  • A mixing bowl
  • Electric whisk 
  • Shroom Coffee 
  • Sugar (make sure to use sugar, to achieve the right consistency)
  • Hot Water 

Add the ingredients to your mixing bowl and mix with an electric mixer for 3-4 minutes until a thick and creamy consistency has formed. Add some ice to a glass and fill just over half way with a milk of your choice (we like to go with Rice or Almond milk). Then pour the creamy coffee mixture on-top and enjoy! 


MUSHROOM COFFEE? DOES THAT MAKE ME HIGH…

The answer is NO! This is something we get asked quite a lot which definitely makes us smile - but no our Mushroom Coffee does not cause hallucinations. The mushrooms included in our blend are; Chaga, Cordyceps & Lion’s Mane. They are also known as ‘functional’ or ‘medicinal’ mushrooms because of their health boosting properties. We wanted to make these powerful superfoods user-friendly and what better way than in coffee right? With less caffeine, you’re getting your coffee fix with health benefits!
