I know we’re starting to get hit with Christmas stuff, but there are still a few weeks left to stop and smell the pumpkins. 🙂 Time for a few more things pumpkin spice. How about Pumpkin Spice Whipped Coffee?
I’m sure you didn’t miss hearing about whipped coffee earlier this year. Or was it 5 years ago? I really can’t tell anymore. 🙂 It was all the rage and had us all trying our hand at making it.
Whipped coffee is very easy to make. IF you use the right tools.
It starts with equal parts instant coffee, sugar, and hot water. I used 2 tablespoons of each.
First the instant coffee:
Then the sugar:
I decided to try making this popular drink with pumpkin spice, so I added a few dashes of pumpkin pie spice to the mixture.
Then I added the hot water. I found it easier to heat up about a half a cup or so in the microwave, then measure out the 2 tablespoons.
Now we come to the part where I think the right tools are necessary. The first time I made this coffee this summer, I followed the instructions to whip this mixture using a whisk. Now I don’t know about you, but I just don’t have that kind of upper body strength. 🙂
I just never could get the mixture to whip up using a whisk. Then I tried using my milk frother. This didn’t work either.
So I brought out the big guns. My KitchenAid Stand Mixer. By the way, while we’re talking about coffee, have you seen this espresso colored mixer? I think it’s gorgeous.
The problem with KitchenAids is that they never die. 🙂 I’ve had mine for DECADES and it’s still going strong. But if I ever do need a new one, I may go with this color:
Anyway, I’m getting distracted. 🙂
Using a stand mixer works like a charm. No arm workout required. While it was doing all the work, I poured milk into my glass, and added a bit of cinnamon. I also added a splash of pumpkin spice creamer.
It is SO EASY to get the mixture whipped to the perfect consistency using the mixer. This is what you’re going for:
Then you add some ice to your glass of milk, and top with the whipped coffee foam. (Have you seen these cute coffee bean molds you could use to make bean shaped ice cubes?)
The thing I like about this is that you get to control how pumpkiny or spicy you want your drink to be. Sometimes I feel like the ones you get at coffee shops can be too heavily flavored.
I like a bit more subtle flavor. With this, you can make it exactly the way you want it.
I hope you’ll take a little time to savor these last few weeks of the glorious fall season, and take a step back from all the madness of the world right now, and make yourself a delicious Pumpkin Spice Whipped Coffee. Haven’t we all earned it? 🙂
