Sometimes I like to have a milky frothy coffee drink, but I don’t have an expensive milk steamer. I also don’t have the time to wait for the milk to heat up on the stove, and I definitely don’t have the arm strength (read: ambition) to whisk away at it to create the froth.
Long ago, our friends at The Kitchn shared a simple way to create milk froth without any of the above. I gave it a whirl, and even though it might not be your classiest foam, it definitely fit the bill for me.
Now that the weather has cooled down, I want milky frothy drinks reintroduced to my mornings. It also reminded me that I never shared this trick with you. So, here you have it! Go enjoy your milky frothy drink, and while you’re at it, try it out with this pumpkin spice syrup when making your pumpkin spice latte.
With this DIY froth, no expensive equipment is needed, and you can rest your muscles from the whisk!
- Milk, as much as you typically use in your cup of coffee (or half and half, whipping cream, etc.)
- Mason jar with lid
Pour milk into mason jar, filling no more than halfway. Secure the lid and shake for 30 seconds. Remove the lid and microwave for another 30 seconds. Using a spoon to hold back the foam, pour the milk into your cup of coffee. Scoop the foam on top. Enjoy!
