Food the meaning

All The TikTok Food Hacks You Need To Try

Chances are, if you’re not a member of Gen Z you’ve tried to avoid TikTok for as long as possible. But—BUT!—it’s more than just a collection of bad dances and hard-to-understand memes. Turns out, the people of TikTok are chock-full of food-related knowledge.

TikTok users constantly share their food hacks with their followers and For You pages. From three ingredient coffee to the proper way to wash your fruit, the app has shaken everyone (even our expert kitchen team) to their core with some of their tricks. Here are some of the best, most mesmerizing, and sometimes, sure, a little gross TikTok food trends out there. Get ready for a wild ride.

Dalgona Coffee

When it comes to TikTok food trends, this one is the OG. Dalgona coffee broke the internet back in March as a three-ingredient recipe to make the creamiest iced coffee of all time. All it takes is equal parts instant coffee, sugar, and hot water. Once you have all of that in a bowl, mix it all together until it reaches a thick, whipped cream-like consistency. This trend is what birthed tangential trends, too, like whipped strawberry milk, whipped matcha, and even whipped peanut butter.

Pancake Cereal

Pancake cereal—who could have seen it coming? To hop on this trend, you just need to make teeny, tiny pancakes and add them to a bowl like cereal, topped with syrup, milk, and whatever other toppings you want. It’s gotten so popular that people are remixing the original and making waffle cereal, donut cereal, and croissant cereal.

Milking Cucumbers

If milking cucumbers sounds gross to you, that’s because, well, it kind of is. But I guarantee once you start doing it, you might not want to stop. To get rid of some of the bitter taste of a cucumber, cut off the end and rub that on the other slices. A white and milky (ew, we know) substance starts coming out, but it actually does seem to improve the taste of raw cucumber. Don’t knock it ’til ya try it, really.

Juicing Lemons Without A Knife

You’ll never take the time to cut a lemon in half with a knife just to juice it after seeing this one. With a skewer, chop stick, or other similarly-shaped object, poke a hole in the end of a lemon, trying your best to not puncture through to the other side. From there, you can squeeze the lemon and get all the juice with no seeds or pulp getting in your way.

Removing Chicken Tendons

When cooking chicken tenderloins, use this advice to remove the white tendons from the meat. Put a fork around the tendon, and pull it from the other side, using a paper towel to help you get a better grip if needed. They come out so easily, making that cut of meat much easier to prepare.

Floss Cake Cutting

Cutting birthday cake into even slices is the hardest part of any party. Instead of worrying about keeping a steady hand with a knife, TikTok suggests using a string of unflavored floss to get your slices just right.

Frozen Bottled Frappuccinos

Those bottled Starbucks Frappuccinos you can get at the grocery store can be made more like the real thing if you throw them in the freezer for a couple hours. One user put her bottled Frapp in the freezer, then shook it after taking it out, and it reached the same slushie-like texture of the blended drink from Starbucks.

Soaking Strawberries

Apparently rinsing your berries under the faucet isn’t enough to really get them clean. Videos have shown people soaking their strawberries in salt water and the result shows little bugs and other critters seemingly coming out of the fruit. Some are skeptical, so do with this information what you will.

Three-Ingredient Crème Brulée

Crème brulée is way easier to make than you might think with these instructions. If you have vanilla ice cream on hand, all you need is eggs and sugar. You’ll add egg yolks (one per serving) and caramelize sugar on your stove rather than with a blow torch. So simple yet so fancy.

White Claw Slushies

White Claws and slushies are two staples of summer, so putting them together into one food trend is a given. Blend ice, frozen berries (fresh ones work, too!), and whatever your favorite White Claw flavor is and you’re set. Some people add sparkling water to help it all blend together, and others add even more vodka.

Vegan Carrot Bacon

Vegan food substitutes are so popular on TikTok, and this vegan bacon will blow your mind. Made from thinly sliced carrots, the veggies are soaked in liquid smoke, maple syrup, onion and garlic powder, and then crisped up in the air fryer.

When you’re making breakfast, its better to not start your day with a ton of dirty dishes. This one pan egg sandwich hack requires no toaster. With some good spatula skills, you’ll make an omelet, then add your toast right in the middle. Use your spatula to flip it all over, add whatever toppings you want inside, and fold the bread into a sandwich right on the pan.

Skip the stove and make your cheesy quesadillas right in the toaster. It’s all about the folding technique to make sure the cheese doesn’t spill out through the sides, so watch this TikTok carefully to perfect it.
