What did we ever do before TikTok? If we’re not talking about beauty trends, then we’re talking about a recipe or song that’s gone viral on the platform. One of the latest trends to go viral on TikTok is a whipped lemonade drink that will help you transition from summer to autumn.
Last year, we were all raving about whipped coffee and cloud bread. TikTok was the driving force behind this food trend as well. We all learned the art of whipping coffee from the app, which brought the trend into the mainstream.
Whipped drinks have now moved from coffee to lemonade, once again thanks to the viral video-sharing app. TikTok has once again hit it out of the park with its latest viral drink. If you’re not a fan of caffeine and prefer something fresher, this is the drink for you.
While lemonade is the perfect summer drink, we love to drink it all year long. Whether it’s an unexpected summer heatwave or if you want an Instagram-ready photo, the whipped lemonade drink is one recipe you want to learn ASAP. It’s an instant crowd-pleaser and one that you and your friends will love.
This TikTok drink gets bonus points for being aesthetically pleasing. It’s the perfect drink for snapping a picture of to put on your Instagram feed and you can even customise it for an exciting floral look. If you want to take your drink to the next level, you can even make an alcoholic version of the drink.
Grab your shopping list. We’re taking a look at everything you need to create this mouth-watering lemonade drink that all your friends will be asking for. You’ll never be able to go back to plain and boring old lemonade ever again. Trust us. Your taste buds and Insta-feed will thank you.
What we love about this TikTok recipe is that it’s easy to make with things that you either have at home or can easily pick up from your local supermarket.
The recipe we’re sharing will give you enough to make two servings of the whipped lemonade – enough for you and your BFF.
Start by taking an aesthetically pleasing glass (bonus points if it’s coloured!) and set it aside to put the finish product into.
You want a second glass to do your mixing to create the whipped topping. Add one half water and one half coconut milk to create the whipped topping for your lemonade. Just like with whipped coffee, you want to froth the coconut milk and water mixture to give you the desired whip look that you want.
While you can do it by hand using a whisking spoon, Amazon is full of frothing tools that can get the job done within a few seconds. If you’re a fan of whipped coffee or whipped lemonade, this handy tool is a staple for your kitchen.
Trust us. Your wrists will thank you.
Now that you have your whipped mixture, take your first glass, and fill it with ice-cold lemonade. You can stick to a classic one or get inventive with a pink lemonade or any that tickle your taste buds. You want to make sure that you leave enough space in your glass to accommodate the whipped mixture on top of the lemonade.
Take the whipped mixture and pour it on top of your lemonade to give you the whipped appearance. Add a fun metal straw to make the lemonade easier to drink and garnish the glass with your favourite fruit. Lemon, lime, or grapefruit are a classic choice but feel free to get inventive.
What we love about TikTok recipes like this one for whipped lemonade is that there’s no hard and fast rules. You can shake up the recipes and make it your own with just a few changes or additions. You can go super fancy with your whipped lemonade or keep it laidback and casual with a minimalistic recipe that is fuss-free.
Don’t be afraid to experiment and have fun with trying to achieve the perfect whip consistency.
It’s worth having a scroll through TikTok to see how other users have shaken up the recipe to make it their own. One of our favourite alterations is to swap out the coconut milk for condensed milk, using it with whipped cream instead of water.
Using these ingredients instead will give you a thicker consistency that is closer to your favourite frappe drink. It also makes the whipped lemonade more indulgent with a richer consistency.
One of our favourite ways to change up the whipped lemonade drink is to add an alcoholic twist. Lemonade is one mixer that works with virtually every type of alcohol – whether you’re a fan of vodka or rum. You can easily convert your whipped lemonade recipe into a new cocktail by adding in your go-to alcohol for a fun twist.
Feel free to experiment and have a fun time with your whipped lemonade. There are no rules that you have to follow, and you can make this drink you own. Just like everyone has their own coffee, you can create a signature whipped lemonade that is uniquely your own.
What we love about whipped lemonade is that it’s a year-round drink that you can sip on at the poolside or during the holiday season. Whether you’re in the mood for alcohol or just want a refreshing drink, you can tailor your whipped lemonade to meet your cravings.
Do you know what makes whipped lemonade even better? An insta-worthy glass to serve it in. Don’t forget to stock up on cocktail glasses and fun seasonal styles ahead of the holiday season. You can even customise your whipped lemonade with a special Halloween or Christmas drink.
Once again, TikTok is out there changing our lives – and our taste buds are loving it.

Do you ever look at the clouds and wish they were edible? Well, with the help of a TikTok trend, you can have the next best thing. Cloud bread is easier to make and a beginner-friendly recipe.

Pro-tip; never go scrolling through Instagram while you’re hungry. Even if you don’t consider yourself an amateur chef, we all have a few favourite foodie Instagram accounts that we look to look at for inspiration. Some of the food is so good we wish we could reach into our phone screens and take a bite. With most restaurants still closed thanks to the pandemic, our Instagram feed is the nearest thing we’re getting to exotic food anytime soon. We’re rounding up a couple of must-follow foodie accounts. You can thank us later!
Whether you spend hours scrolling through your TikTok app or have never opened the platform, this article is for you. It gives you an insight into the trends that are dominating the platform and that you can expect to see more people rocking in real life. Another knock-on effect of TikTok trends is that it impacts which products beauty brands choose to release. If a beauty brand spots a trend about to go viral on TikTok, they’ll rush to get ahead of it.
Is the reign of LinkedIn about to come to an end? It may have found a competitor in the most unlikely of places. When it comes to TikTok, most of us see it as an alternative to Instagram and any other social media platform that focuses on short videos that can go viral overnight. It’s not just Instagram that has to be worried about losing its popularity to TikTok, LinkedIn has to be worried as well.
