keto dalgona horchata

Cookie Crumb
 20 g almond flour
 1 tbsp powdered erythritol
 ½ tbsp salted butter or coconut oil
 ¼ tsp xanthan gum
  tsp cinnamon
 1 pinch salt
 2 tbsp instant coffee
 3 tbsp powdered erythritol
 ¼ tsp cinnamon
 ¼ tsp vanilla extract
 1 pinch salt
 2 tbsp hot water
 2 cups almond, coconut, or macadamia milk
 3 tbsp powdered erythritol
 ½ tsp cinnamon
 ¼ vanilla bean, seeded
 1 pinch salt
 1 serving salted vanilla keto caramel
 flake salt, to taste

For the caramel follow the link and in a small saute over medium-high heat add your butter for the caramel and let brown. When brown, add the remaining ingredients and stir briefly to combine. Reduce heat to a low simmer and let simmer 12 minutes *do not stir* or it will break. Place in a squeeze bottle and add to the freezer to cool down. Reserve for later. This can be made ahead of time.


In a small saute pan over medium-high heat, toast off your almond flour, tossing occasionally to prevent burning and even toasting, and add remaining ingredients. Spread thinly on a small plate and place in freezer to harden. Reserve for later. This can be made ahead of time.


In a blender, add in all your ingredients for the 'Milk' and blend just until combined. Reserve for later.


Now, add all your ingredients for the dalgona into a medium mixing bowl and whisk on medium with a hand mixer until thick like me and oh so light and golden!


Chill your glass of choice briefly. Remove and dip the rim of the glass in a bit of caramel and then straight into the cookie crumb mix.


Pour in the 'Milk' mixture and top with the dalgona using a spoon.


Sprinkle with a bit more cookie crumb, a drizzle of caramel around the rim, and a pinch of flake salt.


Serve your delicious keto dalgona horchata coffee and enjoy!
