I really liked this neat trick to make frothed milk at home.
Be Your Own Barista: Easy Frothed Milk
- 1/3 cup 2% or nonfat milk
- 1 cup brewed Seattle’s Best Coffee
- Add milk to a half-pint mason jar. Cover tightly with lid and shake vigorously until doubled in volume, about 15 – 30 seconds.
- Remove lid and microwave for approximately 10 seconds. Be sure to keep an eye on the milk to prevent it from spilling over in the microwave. Pour the milk into the brewed Seattle’s Best Coffee and spoon froth over the top.
