Indulgent Whipped Coffee All the Rage
Can’t or don’t want to make it to Starbucks? Here’s a deliciously decadent and easy to make coffee treat that’s all over the internet — whipped coffee. Here’s the yummy recipe courtesy of People magazine:
To make the whipped coffee, just add two tablespoons each of instant coffee, sugar, and hot water in a bowl, then whip the ingredients (using either your hand mixer or milk frother) until they become thick and foamy. Next, layer that foam on top of a half glass of milk or creamer, and voila, you’re done.

And happy to share my favorite recipe that’s super low cal (if you use a flounder filet I estimate it’s under 200 calories per serving). The recipe is for Mediterranean fish en papillotte, made in parchment paper. It’s very easy and quick. BTW, I get the Orca frozen flounder filets from Costco. They’re handy to have in the freezer and inexpensive. Here’s the link to the recipe:
