10 Dalgona Coffee-alternatives: Easy Drink Recipes for Kids
- Whipped Strawberry Milk
As Dalgona Coffee alternatives go, the Whipped Strawberry Milk definitely tops the list. You will be hard-pressed to find a child not fond of strawberries (aside from those who suffer from allergies of course). With a delicious whip made of Nesquik Strawberry Powder and heavy whipping cream and served over hot or cold milk, this drink will hit all the sweet spots with your little munchkins.
- Whipped Biscoff Cookies
Remember the popular European cookie, Lotus Biscoff? This Dalgona Coffee alternative is made by whipping together 2 to 3 spoonful of melted Biscoff spread along with half a cup of whipped cream and the required amount of sugar (optional). Once fully incorporated and fluffy, serve it with milk and some Biscoff cookies.
- Whipped Fruit Loops
Show me a child who does not love Fruit Loops for breakfast. Now, you can make his day even more special by whipping up some Fruit Loops (literally!) to go with his morning glass of milk. Crush a handful of Fruit Loops (or any other cereal) and whip it with some heavy whipping cream and a spoonful of sugar. Serve over a glass of milk or a bowl of cereal and watch your kids dig in.
- Whipped Chocolate
Never say no to chocolate. This is a maxim every child swears by, so here’s a Dalgona Coffee alternative for your little chocolate lover. Whip together half a teaspoon of cocoa powder (the darker the better) with three spoonfuls of heavy whipping cream and some sugar. Serve over a glass of your child’s favourite milk and let him enjoy some delicious whipped chocolate. In fact, why don’t you join him too?
- Whipped Beetroot Drink
Getting children to eat vegetables is a messy and stressful job for parents. Here’s a solution you can try with your fussy eaters – whipped beetroot! Despite that reflexive shudder, you can read that the drink is actually quite delicious. All you need is some beetroot powder, mix it up with some heavy whipping cream and sugar, and serve over a cool glass of milk. If you don’t have any beetroot powder on hand, you can simply immerse some beetroot pieces in water for some time and use a spoonful of the pink water for your whip.
- Whipped Fruit Drink
If you have fussy eaters who balk at the sight of fresh fruit, this Dalgona Coffee alternative will definitely change their minds (or at least, make your task as a parent a lot easier). Blend some fresh fruit (like strawberries, mangoes or bananas) with a spoonful of milk and some sugar. Fold in the blended fruit mixture into a bowl of whipped cream with stiff peaks. Serve over a glass of chilled milk and watch your kiddos gulp down the goodness.
- Whipped Kool-Aid
Are you having a party for your child? Here’s a Dalgona Coffee alternative to impress the guests (and their parents). Grab a cup of Cool Whip and add a tablespoon of your favourite Kool-Aid powder and cold water. Whip the mixture together until just thick (do not overmix) and pour over a glass of ice-cold Kool-Aid (you can use the same flavour a before or use a different flavour for a pleasing contrast). The colourful whipped drinks are guaranteed to bring you the accolade of a grand hostess.
- Whipped Peanut Butter Milk
We’re all fans of peanut butter. So, a whipped drink made of this delicious stuff will certainly gain you brownie points with the whole family. Whip together two tablespoons of peanut butter (try to use one that isn’t too salty) along with half a cup of heavy whipping cream and sugar. Once you have achieved a fluffy texture, serve it over your favourite milk. You can also add some crushed nuts as toppings.
- Whipped Oreo Milk
Enjoying a McFlurry might have been put on hold due to the lockdown, but in the interim, you can whip up some Whipped Oreo Milk in your kitchen and enjoy the taste of happiness. Whip together some melted Oreo cream centres with some crushed Oreo cookies and heavy whipping cream. Serve it on top of a glass of chilled milk or Oreo milk (a mix of Oreo O cereal and milk stirred thoroughly).
- Whipped Indigo Tea
If you are into dramatically coloured drinks, this Dalgona Coffee alternative is for you. For creating Whipped Indigo Tea, you will need some blue Butterfly pea powder. Mix a teaspoon of this powder with a tablespoon of hot water, two tablespoons of aquafaba powder and some sugar. The more aquafaba you add, the thicker the mixture will be. Serve over a glass of warm milk and enjoy an exotic whipped tea drink.
