Are you in search of the perfect coffee creation ahead of your next virtual meeting or just want to learn something new? Well, look no further! Frothing milk for coffee drinks is an art form and one you can easily master with a few cool tools, lots of practice and this step-by-step guide.
Whether youre looking to froth milk for your coffee drinks at home or on the go, and no matter if youre using a manual, electric or battery-powered milk frother, follow these steps to create a menu full of caffeinated wonders.
First, choose the milk youll be frothing. Dairy milk froths best, though you can use plant milk varieties, such as almond or coconut milk. Heat milk on the stove for two to three minutes, or warm in the microwave for up to one minute, until slightly steaming. Pour the milk into the frother, leaving space for the milk to expand when frothing.
Next, depending on the type of frother youre using, gently turn the handle of the manual frother, rapidly push the plunger of the automatic frother, or push the button of the battery-powered frother. As the milk begins to churn and expand, slowly lower and raise the frother to create even, compact froth. Once frothing is complete, the milk should have doubled in size and be light, airy and topped with a creamy foam.
When ready to add your frothed milk to your coffee drink, lift the frother and pour the milk into the cup, mixing the froth and liquid with a spoon. Then, if using an electric or battery-powered frother, discard the remaining milk and rinse the frother with hot soapy water.
Now you’re a master of frothing milk for all kinds of drinks. Use these same steps for latte, espresso macchiato, sweet cream cold brew, hot chocolate and many other drinks. With a few simple steps, you’ll be able to whip up delicious tastings drinks like a pro. So, get ready to make drinks that can put even the local cafe to the test.
