Vegan Dalgona Whipped Matcha Latte
Meet your new favorite summertime energy-boosting beverage. This vegan Dalgona-style whipped matcha latte is a dairy-free and refined sugar-free spin on the Dalgona Whipped Coffee craze that is sweeping TikTok and Instagram. The concept came from the popular beverage in South Korea. Traditionally it is made from water, instant coffee and refined sugar. You whip those three ingredients together and serve over milk.
Since I’m not a coffee drinker (hello, jitters!), I wanted to create a matcha-version of this delicious looking drinking. I also wanted it to be vegan/dairy-free, super easy and naturally sweetened.
How to Make a Vegan Dalgona Matcha Latte
In this recipe, I used coconut cream and whipped it with sifted matcha to create the matcha whip. I sweetened the whip naturally with pure maple syrup to keep it refined sugar-free. I added a bit of vanilla extract too. Basically it is matcha whipped coconut cream poured overtop your favorite chilled plant-based milk. I like almond milk best, but oat milk would work too if you want to keep the recipe nut-free.
You can also serve this over hot almond milk instead of iced. Either way, the creamy whipped matcha topping slowly infuses the almond milk underneath as you stir your Instagram-worthy metal straw about the glass. Get your cameras ready, you trend-setter, you! Instagram your hearts out. I highly recommend the Boomerang straw stir. 😉
All bandwagon jokes aside, this is a fun, sweet and creamy way to get your caffeine fix.
