Lockdown hacks: Easy and delicious whipped coffee

Lockdown means that many of us have been deprived of those indulgent cups of coffee from our local cafe for weeks. For those who’ve been hankering for something filled with caffeine, we’ve got the fix for you. With only three ingredients, you can spruce up that morning cup of joe and get it to taste better than your favourite cafes.

It’s as easy as mixing sugar, coffee and water. That’s right. It’s that simple. And for those of us with that extra sweet tooth, you can use this whipped coffee mixture as a topping for your brownies or simply add it as an accompaniment to your morning muffin.

Whipped coffee

2 tablespoons of instant coffee
2 tablespoons of sugar
2 tablespoons of boiling water
1 cup of milk (soy, almond and oat milk are also great alternatives to regular milk)
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla (optional)
Pinch of cinnamon/cocoa (optional)


Add the coffee, sugar and boiling water into a bowl (you can double or triple this recipe if you have more people, or if you’re feeling brave). Use a hand/stand mixer and whip on high speed.

Whip the mixture for about two minutes, making sure to scrape the excess off the sides and reincorporate it into the mixture. Then whip again for another three minutes.

Your mixture should be light in colour and double the volume.

Add the vanilla to your milk of choice (hot or cold) and stir.

Spoon your whipped coffee onto the milk and sprinkle with a pinch of cinnamon or cocoa and enjoy.

Remember, the whipped coffee mixture will be strong on its own, but the flavour becomes much milder once you stir it into your milk or add it to your desserts.

Mozambique admits presence of Islamic State fighters for first time

The National Council for Defence and Security, the state body that advises President Filipe Nyusi on security matters, blamed recent attacks in Cabo Delgado on Islamic State.

Mozambique admits presence of Islamic State fighters for first time

Mozambique has admitted for the first time the presence of Islamic State militants in the country amid escalating attacks in the gas-rich Cabo Delgado northern province, according to a statement seen Friday.

The public acknowledgement came just days after police reported a “massacre” of 52 villagers who had refused to be recruited into the ranks of the shadowy group that has terrorised the region’s villages and towns for more than two years.

Islamic State behind the massacre of 52 villagers

The National Council for Defence and Security, the state body that advises President Filipe Nyusi on security matters, blamed the attacks on Islamic State.

The council “analysed the situation of the attacks in the province of Cabo Delgado and concluded that… they were committed by the Islamic State, a terrorist organisation.

It “reveals that we are dealing with external aggression,” it said in an emailed statement.

Islamic State Central Africa Province (ISCAP), affiliated with the Islamic State group, has claimed some of the attacks in the region since last June posting images of slain soldiers and seized weapons.

A caliphate in Mozambique

In recent weeks the fighters have unmasked themselves, openly declaring their campaign to establish an Islamist caliphate in the gas-rich region.

They have been scaling up their attacks, seizing government buildings, blocking roads and temporarily hoisting their black-and-white jihadist flag over towns and villages across the province. 

But police have refused to comment on the attacks and on rare occasions would do so, attributing the attacks to “criminals or illegal miners”.

Police spokesman Orlando Mudumane this week revealed that the militants had beheaded and shot the 52 murdered villagers on April 7 after they refused to be recruited.

The attacks in Cabo Delgado started in 2017 in the small town of Mocimboa da Praia and have now spread to seven districts, or about a third of the province’s territory, according to police chief Bernardino Rafael.

More 900 people have been killed, according to the Armed Conflict Location & Event Data Project (ACLED).

The unrest has forced more than 200,000 locals to flee and raised concern among energy giants operating in the gas-rich region.

Locally the group members are known as Al-Shabaab, although they have no known links to the ruthless jihadist group of that name operating in Somalia.
