Hi Savvys,

With social distancing and more time to play around in my kitchen as a result, I have finally hopped onto the Dalgona coffee train and I am glad that I did!  When I first made this the traditional way wit 1:1:1 ratio of water, coffee and sugar for my husband, I was so excited to see how quickly it whipped up and how delicate the result was.  I don’t drink coffee so the treat was all for him but I also wanted to indulge myself.  I have seen lots of people do this with matcha powder, however usually with egg whites.  Here is my vegan version, made 2 different ways!  I would also consider this “recipe” a pantry staple since I always have these ingredients on hand.

The first way is with aquafaba, which I always have in the freezer.  This was the first version I made and was delighted with the foam it created.  Though it isn’t as thick as the coffee version, it still did the trick.  It also didn’t seem as creamy but more airy which meant it didn’t feel over indulgent.

The second way to make this is with coconut milk.  As all vegans know, you need to let your can of coconut milk sit in the fridge overnight before whipping this up.  I have to say, the coconut version is my favourite since it provides the same fluffiness as the coffee version and feels like you are eating mouse for breakfast.

Both versions are great to whip up any time, however the aquafaba has the advantage of already being in your freezer and thus is a pantry staple, where as you need open up a whole can of the coconut milk which means you will need to make a huge batch of this stuff or use the remaining milk for a smoothie/curries later, so it’s really up to your preference.

Hope you guys enjoy these versions.  Now set forth and be savvy!
