“Vietnamese Egg Coffee” simple and delicious

Vietnamese egg coffee (ca phe trung) is made by beating an egg yolk with sweetened condensed milk for about 10 minutes until it makes an airy, creamy, meringue-like fluff. Are you drooling yet? This eggy goodness is then slowly poured on top of hot espresso, or iced coffee. Are you with me so far?


1. Is egg coffee healthy?

Nutrition-wise, it’s a good combination. Coffee has been proven to give a performance boost, whether physical or mental, and eggs are a great source of protein and fat. So nutritionally, starting your day with an egg coffee will keep you full for longer and help you take the day on.

2. How does it taste?

It doesn’t taste of egg – more like vanilla – and while I can taste the coffee at the bottom of the cup, the egg part is surprisingly light-tasting and not at all sickly, though certainly sweet. The cold option, laden with ice, is more of a dessert and tastes like coffee ice-cream…
