Coffee, it purges your morning sleepiness with pleasant bitterness, brandishing it's beautiful colour, with it's fluffy texture laid upon a jiggly bed of creamy goodness. Fluffy? Bed? That's right! This is the dalgona coffee chia pudding, a filling and energy inducing breakfast or afternoon pick me up.

It's up to you how thick you want your dalgona to be, I tried out both whipping my dalgona to be the consistency of whipped cream, and made another where it was whipped to a point where it could easily be poured.

Feel free to mix in cocoa powder in your chia pudding to make a 'mocha'.

    Can you use almond milk?

    I don’t quite understand the recipe, does whipping just 2 tbs coffee, water and sugar really whip to that consistency

      Yes it does! I've tried it but be sure to used instant coffee powder. Can't do it with your leftover brew.
