Dalgona coffee was one of the many simple recipes which went viral last year. The top most-searched recipes as per Google’s Year In Search, basically involves whipping up a coffee mix to top over milk and create a delicious drink which is also visually appealing. A good part of the year 2020 was spent by us at home trying to get the perfect picture of the frothy creation. Caffeine addicts loved the marvellously simple drink, while Indians claimed it to be nothing different from the traditional ‘Phenti Hui Coffee’. If you couldn’t get enough of Dalgona coffee, we have another trend you surely need to try. ‘Proffee’ is the latest viral coffee trend on the block which has taken social media by storm.
The coffee trend started on TikTok, and Proffee soon spilled over to Instagram as well with 66k posts on the hashtag #proteincoffee. Proffee is basically nothing but a combination of a protein shake and a coffee. The protein content adds extra body to the coffee, thus making it more satiating and keeping us full for longer. The trend has become all the rage among fitness enthusiasts, who want to increase their protein intake without giving up on their favourite cup of coffee. Truly the best of both worlds!
