Dalgona Coffee with Chocolate Paleo Protein May 13, 2020 17:45 22 Comments
We noticed that a lot of folks are trying their hand at a whipped sweet-tasting milky coffee treat that is trending known as Dalgona Coffee.
Dalgona, or Ppopgi in Korean, means “honeycomb toffee” or "old fashioned sugar candy". It's a treat you can easily make yourself and it tastes delicious! Dalgona coffee is a beverage made by whipping equal proportions of instant coffee powder, sugar, and hot water until it becomes creamy and then adding it to cold or hot milk.
We had a lot of fun experimenting in the RawWheyProtein.com kitchen. We put a healthier spin on our version of Dalgona coffee by substituting xylitol (a low glycemic sweetener) instead of sugar and using coconut cream instead of milk. We kicked our recipe up a few notches by adding chocolate Complete Paleo Protein for a burst of mocha flavor and high quality beef-based protein!
2 Tablespoons of your favorite Instant Coffee, we used Nescafé
1 Tablespoon of Xylitol for added sweetness if you choose you can add more or less to your taste preferences
4 Tablespoons of hot water
2 Tablespoons of Complete Paleo Protein in the Delicious Chocolate Flavor
1 can of Organic Coconut Cream, we used Trader Joe's brand
Whip the instant coffee, xylitol, water and Paleo Protein powder with a whisk or use a hand blender until soft peaks are formed.
Pour over iced or warm coconut cream.
We tried several versions of Dalgona coffee with other ingredients such as our Vegan Creamy Vanilla Complete Pea Protein with a Matcha version for those of you who don't like coffee or chocolate and it was a delightful snack.
To make the Vanilla Matcha version:
Mix one Tablespoon of Matcha powder with 4 Tablespoons of hot water.
In a separate mug, mix 1 Tablespoon of Creamy Vanilla Complete Pea Protein
with coconut cream.
Pour the steeped and thoroughly whisked Matcha and hot water mix over the Pea Protein and coconut cream mix. Add xylitol for sweetness to your taste preference.
These 2 delicious drinks make great snacks or breakfasts. The added Protein helps satiate your appetite so that your blood sugar stays even until lunch or your next meal.
