If you spend time on social media every day, you might notice a certain kitchen gadget everywhere and we mean, everywhere. This device is called a Milk Frother, also known as a hand blender or foam maker. People use it to make delicious lattes, amazing cafe style drinks, and even to mix their protein powders. It truly works wonders on your favorite beverages by making your milk extra frothy! Just like whipped cream!
But if you’re wondering if you can do all that without one, the answer is YES! In this blog, we’re gonna help you achieve the same results by giving you the best tips on how to froth milk without the use of a milk frother or going to a cafe so you can enjoy a delicious milk foam at home!
So how can you froth without a milk frother?
The first key point is the temperature of the milk! Reaching an optimal temperature is the key to obtaining quality froth. When the milk is heated to 60-68°C or 141-155°F, it will give you better results. Milk that has been heated less will not foam too well and milk that has been heated too much may not foam as much or taste as good either.
Here are 3 simple ways to make delicious (and attractive) foam for your coffee!
1. The Shaking Jar!
2. The Blender!
3. The French Press!
The coffee item that we can’t live without! Simply pour the hot milk into a clean, dry container from the French press. You should leave an empty space for the bubbles to grow and the foam to be formed. Put the lid on the French Press, immerse it, and pull the plunger repeatedly until you see the foam fill the space available in the container. Remove the plunger and pour the foam into your coffee to taste pure frothy goodness!
And there you have it! 3 amazing ways to froth without a Milk Frother. Any of these tips will surely help you achieve your frothy goals!
