Inspired by one of my favorite childhood dim sum tofu pudding dessert, "Tau Huay", this refreshing gingery soy iced latte recreates the traditional flavor with an uplifting twist of salted whipped cream topping. The salted whipped cream adds another dimension by contrasting the sweetness of the ginger soy base and enhancing the richness of the beverage. This is a quick and fun base recipe as you can derive many variations to accommodate various palates or occasion. Keep on reading to check out the fun variations suggestions. As a bonus to this recipe, we'll also teach you how to make homemade ginger syrup that can be versatile for other drinks or desserts.
Fueled by the boredom of stay-at-home folks during this covid-19 crisis, Dalgona coffee took social media by the storm. The coffee infused sugary froth is whipped to a semi-stiff peak and then layered on top of a glass of milk, the aesthetics and the lure of the creamy coffee culture made it a sensational drink to attempt at home. Because I don't drink coffee, but I do drink tea, I wanted to discover a substitute recipe which can pull off the similar aesthetic.
The original Dalgona recipe is alot of hard work to get that sugar whipped up. Obviously it's something that you probably don't have time to do it often. Without spending 15 minutes just whipping away, my recipe relies on using heavy whipping cream to imitate the texture and the richness while reducing whipping time by employing the hand held milk frother. Also, alot of people have been saying that the standard Dalgona coffee recipe tends to be too sweet. Since we're relying on whipping cream and not sugar to create the frothy texture, we can reduce the sugar input to create a balanced component. To elevate this further, I've added a touch of salt to contrast against the sweetness, transforming it to something reminiscence of salted caramel concept where the sweet and salty cream compliments the milk base.
If you haven't heard, Brown Sugar flavored milk tea is all the rave. The dark molasses flavor captivated the bubble tea enthusiasts and you will find every bubble tea house featuring this sweet tooth drink. Well, we've also been really crazy over Oatly because of its rich mouthfeel and delicious flavor but reduced the calories when compared against whole milk. And so, we thought why not create our favorite milk tea with oat-milk? Plus, making it at home means you can control the sugar level and we definitely like our drinks to be mildly sweetened. So skip the commute to Chinatown or wherever the tea house maybe and try your hands on this easy to follow 10 minutes simple recipe.
Note: We have not include the tapioca bubbles, but you may add them at your leisure. Also, we're trying to make this easy to prep so we suggest using the microwave to speed up the process.
