Love a delicious theme? Lean into Easter this year with a morning coffee served straight from a chocolate Easter bunny cup.

You may have seen the dalgona coffee trend sweeping the internet, and putting drinks inside chocolate bunnies isn’t anything new, so I thought, why not combine the two?

If you’re not familiar with dalgona coffee, it’s instant coffee, sugar and water whipped into a thick foam that’s spooned on top of a glass of milk and ice. It’s served across India and Pakistan and called ‘beaten coffee’ and also in a similar fashion in Greece where it’s called a frappé.

You can use any instant coffee to make it, but I recommend buying the smoothest/mildest brand you can get as the foam can taste quite bitter.

How to make whipped coffee
This “whipped cream” is made from just instant coffee, sugar and water
It takes just three ingredients, and a few minutes with a handheld mixer, it’s also gluten-free, fat-free and vegan.

The process is simple, just bite the ears off of your hollowed-out chocolate bunny of choice, and fill with ice cubes and milk, then top with the instant coffee whip and a straw for stirring.

This only works with iced coffee for fairly obvious reasons, but if you’ve got kids or don’t like coffee, a milkshake, iced chocolate, iced chai or any kind of flavoured milky drink works a treat. Decaf instant coffee is also a great workaround if you want to try the whip without the hit.

Raspberry ripple milkshakes

Blueberry muffin smoothie

Blueberries are little nutritional powerhouses. They are the star feature of this vibrant smoothie, which uses fresh and freeze-dried berries. Each style adds its own texture and variation on blueberry flavour. 

Banoffee milkshake

We have taken the recipe for the very popular dessert, banoffee pie, and turned it into a milkshake! As if the combination of caramel, banana, ice-cream and cream wasn't enough, we've topped it off with shaved chocolate. Heavenly...
