Keto Dalgona Coffee
This coffee just has 4 ingredients and only takes a few minutes to whip up. You can use a handheld electric mixer which is what I recommend, or if you don’t have one you can use a whisk. A whisk will work your arm muscles so it may be an added benefit.
You will only need Instant Coffee, Swerve Granular Sugar, Unsweetened Almond Milk and hot Water.
Make sure your ratios are even, in the coffee, water, and sugar. It doesn’t matter if you use 1 TB, 2 TBS, or 3 TBS depending on how much foam you want as long as you make them all the same amount when whipping.
This recipe will make 2 Dairy-Free Dalgona Coffees, but you can reduce the amount if you are just making one cup.
If you prefer an iced drink fill the cup with ice first. If you prefer a hot beverage you can warm up the milk first before adding the whipped topping.

Money-Saving Iced Latte
This coffee craze was first started during the Covid-19 Pandemic in the Spring of 2020. With “stay at home” orders and unemployment layoffs, people are trying to find ways to save money and occupy their time while home.
Videos on Tik Tok started emerging on this beautiful coffee drink flavored after the Korean candy, Dalgona.
But the added benefit was that it is a money-saving drink, with just a few ingredients. It won’t cost you $5 dollars or more if you were to go to your favorite coffee house.
