Here to go head to head with last year’s Dalgona whipped coffee is whipped lemonade, a comparably easy beverage that’s trending on TikTok. The #WhippedLemonade hashtag has amassed over 4.4 million views, proving that the drink has given many social media users new zest for summertime at home. As they say, when life gives you lemons… make TikTok-famous lemonade.
The refreshing drink is a blend of fresh lemon juice, condensed milk, and whipped cream—ingredients you can easily find at the store. The milky components give it a creamy and frothy texture that pairs well with the tang from the citrus.
Simply blend ice, condensed milk, lemon juice, and whipped cream together until there are no more ice chunks, then pour the concoction into a glass and top it with more whipped cream.
Unlike the iced coffee beverage that took the internet by storm, there’s no expectation for you to whip this drink by hand. However, if you’d still like to turn it into a labor of love to make the drinking experience more worthwhile, you could use fresh lemons or whip your own cream instead of using the bottled stuff.
On the other end of the spectrum, some TikTokers have simplified the recipe and shortened their shopping lists by replacing both the fresh lemon and condensed milk with powdered lemonade.
CNET’s David Watsky, who gave the recipe a go and thought it “fantastic,” likens the drink to “a lemony creamsicle.” While the condensed milk and whipped cream expectedly mellowed down the sourness of the lemon, there was still a lovely touch of acidity and brightness from the fruit.
You could even add a splash of alcohol for a well-needed buzz. At home, brunch hours stretch all day.
