My teenagers are OBSESSED with Java Chip Frappuccinos from Starbucks. But we don't have a Starbucks on every corner here in Morocco so those frappuccinos are a real treat. Recently I saw a recipe on how to make whipped coffees at home.
The first time I had a frappe (whipped coffee) was in Greece and I had no idea how easy they were to make. They're also referred to as dalgona coffee and the prominence online started thanks to South Korean social media!
I decided to take it a step further and make it “Moroccan” by using mint. Usually we reserve our mint for tea but it seemed fitting that it would work well with chocolate and coffee.
You'll need a few more ingredients to make my version but it is worth it. The recipe below is for 2 servings, because it's always better to share with friends. You can adjust the sugar too. Some people prefer this more sweet while others omit the sugar completely.
I add ice cubes because I love iced coffee but of course that's up to you too. Make it your own!
If you're looking for a DIY mint syrup recipe – I've got that covered for you too.
- 3 tablespoons of hot water
- 3 tablespoons of sugar
- 3 tablespoons of instant coffee
- 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder
- 2 tablespoons of mint syrup or 2 drops mint extract
- Milk or a vegetal beverage of your choice
- ice cubes
In a bowl, put together 3 tablespoons of instant coffee, 3 tablespoons of sugar, and 3 tablespoons of hot water.
Beat everything well, with a hand mixer or a whisk until everything is well beaten and the consistency is similar to whipped cream.
Add the cocoa powder and mix a minute more.
Fill a mug until about 2/3 with cold milk and mix one tablespoon of mint syrup per cup (or extract)
If you want it iced, add the ice cubes now as well.
On top, put a few spoons of the chocolate whipped coffee.
Use a spoon to mix the coffee with the milk as you drink it.
You can use whatever quantities you prefer, as long as you use the same amount of hot water, sugar, and instant coffee to create the whipped coffee. This is enough for two big cups.
