How to Make Dalgona Matcha
If you haven’t heard of the dalgona coffee trend yet, it’s basically taken over the Internet for the early part of 2020. Dalgona coffee is usually made by whipping together instant coffee, sugar and hot water. Forget coffee though, we've put together an easy-to-follow and exceptionally delicious dalgona matcha recipe for you to try!
Did you know? The term dalgona coffee originated in South Korea and is named after the popular Korean honeycomb toffee candy.
For this recipe we used aquafaba, which is the liquid from a can of chickpeas, to form a fluffy foam-like texture. The only other ingredients you will need to recreate this recipe are matcha powder, sugar, water and of course your choice of milk. Note, you’ll need a stand or hand mixer for this recipe to whip the aquafaba.
