Bring the coffee shop home and invigorate your senses with a vegan Dalgona Whipped Matcha Latte. This is my take on the coffee drink that has become an internet sensation, the Dalgona Coffee, which is made with instant coffee, sugar and hot water whipped into a caramel-like froth. This whipped matcha latte is made similarly but uses the superfood green matcha tea instead. It will be as fun to drink as it is to say. Enjoy this light and frothy tea warm or chilled over ice!
The Wonders of Aquafaba
The secret to this luscious whipped tea is aquafaba, the water from a can of beans. Aquafaba has no calories or nutrition, but it whips into a firm white foam. It can be incorporated into baked goods, made into whipped creams and makes for the best meringues. It is so satisfying making something beautiful out of an ingredient commonly drained and discarded.
