Low Carb Dalgona Coffee

Low Carb Dalgona Coffee

Can you believe that it’s almost July? My family and I were hoping to be planning a Fourth of July event, but the way things are going we are shooting for Thanksgiving now. 

I stumbled upon the perfect coffee concoction and I’m sharing my take on it with you today.  My love for coffee started in 2012 when I was sitting in the Baton Rouge Airport en route to Dallas on a 0615 flight. I could barely keep my eyes open and I stopped at PJs coffee and got a small regular coffee…I added the perfect amount of creamer and Splenda and fast forward to 2020 and I’m still perfecting my favorite cup. I went from two-three cups of regular coffee to now maybe one to two cups of decaf every day. If I don’t get my 1st cup I’m by 10 I usually just skip it. I always thought the coffee gave me energy and I have come to realize drinking coffee just makes me feel like I’m grown so decaf using does the trick for me.

I’m not much of a Starbucks person so when I saw the dalgona coffee storming the internet I had to put my Southern spin on it. I’m not sure what my NaNa would say about this one as she liked her coffee strong with a little sugar. 

What is Dalgona coffee?

Only three main ingredients — instant coffee, sugar, and hot water — then combine them with a whisk or, better yet, a hand mixer, until the mixture gets thick and, well, fluffy. Pour it over cold or warm milk. Either way, you have a delicious, extra-creamy drink to enjoy.

Why is it called “Dalgona”?

Dalgona coffee gets its name from dalgona, a spongy South Korean coffee candy. Similar to honeycomb toffee candy, dalgona is basically made by melting sugar and stirring in a little bit of baking soda appearing very similar to the pockmarked texture of dalgona coffee foam against the side of a glass.

Because of the prep time I usually on get these once or twice a week, but they are so worth it. If you give it a try be sure to let me know please-Omniley?

Godiva Chocolate Bunny Cocktail

I’m sharing another cute hosting hack for Easter.  I recommend leaving these bunnies wrapped in the foil and using as table decor until you are ready to use on Easter day or whatever day your event is being held. I want to warn you these are hollow and will melt quickly. I lost one set in the car while shopping. I recommend bringing these home immediately or placing in an ice chest in the car if you have a long ride on a hot day.  This is the cutest drink and can be made kid-friendly as well. Happy Hosting.
