We’ve got TikTok to thank for all sorts of trends.
The video sharing social media platform has been credited with all sorts, from kick-starting the careers of budding musicians, to having an impact on the latest fashion and food fads.
One of the latest trends to be taking TikTok by storm is a refreshing ‘whipped lemonade’ recipe that looks perfect for the summer.
Similar to the famous coffee recipe that was created in kitchens all across the globe during the first lockdown back in mid-2020, step-by-step videos demonstrating how to make the new lemonade drink are racking up millions of views online.
It’s largely because this simple drink doesn’t take a lot of ingredients, and is really easy to put together in no time at all.
There’s a bunch of variations on the recipe floating around on TikTok, with some people using ingredients such as condensed milk, coconut milk, or whipping cream to ensure the drink is as frothy as possible, as well as fizzy lemonade, lemon juice, Kool-Aid, and/or powdered lemonade mixtures to get that all-important tangy kick.
One popular video by TikTok user @mtlajeunesse showcases the simple recipe.
How To Make Whipped Lemonade
- Whipped Cream
- Sweetened Condensed Milk
- Lemons (for their juice and a garnish)
In the short video demonstrating the super-simple recipe, they put three cups of ice, two cups of whipped cream, a half cup of the sweetened condensed milk, and a half cup of lemon juice in the blender.
They blend until the mixture is creamy with a few chunks of ice left, and pour it into a glass, before topping off with more whipped cream and a slice of lemon to garnish.
Another recipe proving popular on the other side of the pond requires the retro US powdered drink Kool-Aid – which you can actually grab online in the UK – to give your whipped lemonade a twist, although any brand of powdered drink mix should do the trick.
In TikTok user @goldenxclouds‘s recipe, they sprinkle Kool-Aid on top of whipping cream and use a handheld milk frother to mix it together until the mixture forms soft peaks, before pouring a bottle of lemonade into a glass and topping it off with the whipped mixture and a strawberry garnish.
