Here’s Every Whipped Drink You Can Make Using Stuff in Your Pantry
It all started with whipped coffee—and now people are turning everything into whipped drinks. From strawberry milk to whipped avocado, here are the most popular recipes on TikTok and Instagram.
Is Dalgona coffee (aka the original whipped drink) really as good as everyone says? No—it’s even better, according to one of our Test Kitchen staffers, who made it herself. She raves that the drink, which is made with instant coffee, is bold and strong like espresso yet creamy and frothy like a latte.
Whipped Strawberry Milk
Move over, Starbucks—there’s a new pink drink in town. Made by whipping one tablespoon of Strawberry Nesquik with four tablespoons of heavy cream, whipped strawberry milk not only looks beautiful but it also tastes like the strawberry milk of your childhood. Cue all the nostalgia.
Matcha tea is great. Whipped matcha tea is even better. The frothy green latte looks fussy but is as simple as Dalgona coffee to make. Simply combine a tablespoon matcha powder with a tablespoon each of hot water and sugar. Then whisk together until foamy and serve over chilled milk. Yum. Psst! Make a vegan version by using dairy-free milk.
Whipped Peanut Butter Milk
If you’re obsessed with all things peanut butter (and who isn’t?!), grab a glass and a jar of your favorite PB—because this whipped peanut butter milk is about to become your new go-to drink. To make this drink, use a hand mixer to combine 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter, 1 teaspoon sugar and 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream. Serve the fluffy, creamy, peanut buttery mixture over iced milk. Bonus points if you add a Reese’s Pieces rim for extra indulgence.
Whipped Hot Chocolate
As if hot chocolate couldn’t get any better, TikTok users had to go and whip it into something creamy, chocolaty and totally drool-worthy. And you don’t even need hot cocoa mix—you can use things you already have in your pantry. Beat two tablespoons cocoa powder, 2 tablespoons sugar, 1 tablespoon how water and, 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream in a medium bowl until it’s nice and foamy. Add more cream or water to thin, if needed. Serve over iced (or warm!) milk and top with a marshmallow if you have one handy.
What’s a little bit spicy, a little bit sweet and a lot Instagram-worthy? A whipped chai, which simply swaps instant coffee for chai tea concentrate or powder. You can use any tea that’s leftover to make one of these yummy chai recipes, from cupcakes to breads.
