☕️Another alternative to #whippedcoffee… I bring to you Whipped Strawberry Milk made using one of my favorite childhood drinks ever, Nesquik!
✨All you need is 1 tbsp of Strawberry Nesquik and 4 tbsp (1/4 cup) of heavy whipping cream. Mix it until your arm is numb and serve over cold or hot milk?
?What do you think? Are you sticking to #dalgona coffee or trying one of these alternatives?
The Instagram post has accrued almost 400,000 likes.
Other people quickly tried out the recipe.
In the video, Mussi puts the rim of the glass in raw agave nectar and then back in the Nesquik to make it look fancier. Some recipes call for putting a fresh strawberry on the rim.
Here’s a version of the drink that uses Nesquik syrup.
Other recipes call for four tablespoons of heavy whipping cream and two tablespoons of strawberry Nesquik (powder or syrup). Stir it until it’s thick and fluffy. Put milk over ice and then put the cream on top.
Other whipped drinks have also taken Instagram by storm.
The strawberry whipped milk is basically a caffeine-free version of Dalgona or whipped coffee. If you’re interested in learning more about Dalgona coffee, here’s a recipe for that. It requires instant coffee, sugar and water.
A version of whipped coffee on TikTok has 1.9 million likes:
People have taken that trend and added new twists that don’t involve coffee, of which whipped strawberry milk is but the latest.
According to Delish, the reason that the strawberry Nesquik is mixed with heavy whipping cream instead of sugar is because it’s already sweet, unlike instant coffee.
People took to Twitter to write about the trend.
