Someone someday real soon may tell you to go drink some cheese. We’re not talking about that not-so-proud moment when you were all about the queso, so to get every last drop you treated the bowl like a cup and drank the rest. No, we’re seriously talking about drinks made with cheese.
Cheese tea and cheese coffee are taking over the world. But it’s not what you think. You won’t be ordering a mozzarella mocha, or a cuppa cheddar with a shot of Parmesan.
Cheese tea is cold tea with a layer of decadent, creamy cheese foam on top, according to L.A.’s Little Fluffy Head Café.
1 cup milk
2 ounces cream cheese
2 ounces cream cheese powder
1/3 cup whipped cream
2 1/2 tablespoons condensed milk
1 pinch sea salt or Himalayan pink salt
Tea (as preferred: earl grey, green tea, matcha, oolong, etc.)
Sugar (to taste)
First, prepare the cheese. In a large bowl; mix the milk, cream cheese, and cream cheese powder with a hand blender (or a fork) until completely even. Add condensed milk, whipped cream, and salt into the mix until medium foamy peaks are formed. Cover the cheese foam with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. While the cheese is chilling, make your tea. Boil water in a tea kettle or pot. Then, pour boiled water in a heat-safe pitcher and steep your tea to your preferred strength. Put tea in the refrigerator until chilled. (optional) Pour tea in tall clear glasses until 3/4 of the way full and add sugar to taste. Add spoonfuls of cheese until glasses are topped off.
