Dalgona Milo is another must-try cold drink recipe. Because I don't drink coffee and I wasn't able to enjoy the Dalgona Coffee that I made a few days ago. I was inspired to make the milo version which my kids and I can surely enjoy.
Due to Covid-19, most people are staying at home or in-home quarantine mode. Someone uploaded a video in TikTok on how to make Dalgona Coffee and that's how this challenge started. Good thing there's an alternative for those people who don't consume coffee. Dalgona Milo is introduced in social media as well. The ingredient include milo or chocolate powder, egg white or whipping cream, sugar and water.
Dalgona originated in Korea named after the Korean candy. Many Filipinos are an avid fan of K-Pop and Korean Novela, which is why we also want to try this Dalgona Challenge. They said you need to do it manually by whisking the mixture 400 times. However, if you have an electric hand-held mixer, you can do the trick easily.
Tips How to Make Dalgona Milo
- Diluted milo powder is too thick, so you need to add another ingredient to make it airy and light. I used egg white for this recipe but you can also use whipping cream instead.
- Make sure you heat the egg white over simmering water.
- Use a hand-held mixer to make the meringue alternatively, you can whisk it manually using a balloon whisk but it may take a while.
- Do not overbeat the egg white, you want to achieve soft peaks form.
Dalgona Milo Recipe
- 3 tbsp milo powder
- 1 tbsp hot water
- 1 egg white
- 1 tbsp granulated white sugar
- In a small bowl, combine milo powder and hot water. Stir until well dissolved and set aside.
- Using a heatproof bowl, mix egg white and sugar. Place the bowl over a pot with simmering water. Make sure the bowl is not touching the water. Stir until sugar is well dissolved. Remove from the heat.
- Continue to whisk using an electric hand-held mixer, beat until soft peaks form. Strain the milo mixture and pour it into the meringue. Gently fold well combined or until no more white streak.
- To assemble, put some ice cubes on a tall glass and fill about 2/3 of cold milk. Top with whipped mixture using an ice cream scooper. Sprinkle more milo powder on top and serve immediately.
