In this article, you'll learn how to use a milk frother to create your own cappuccinos, mochas or lattes at home and become the barista in your life.
Foamed milk is a delicious and creamy frothy delight when added to any espresso, coffee or tea of your choice.
Let's learn some theory!
Foamed milk is simply milk into which air has been introduced or pushed to create a frothy, bubbly consistency. The air pushed into the milk creates bubbles on the surface and turns into foam, which is exactly what many people like to add to their coffee, espresso, cappuccinos, etc.
Now, how does one go about frothing milk?
One of the ways to make delicious milk froth for coffee is to use a milk frother. This is a small electrical or battery-operated appliance that helps to introduce air into the milk so that it starts to bubble and turn into foam.
Cold or hot milk?
You can froth cold or hot milk and here I will give you specific instructions for both.
For frothing cold milk, the key factor is to use the milk within 5 days of purchase to get the best froth, another important point is that the milk should be very cold, straight from the refrigerator.
If your plan is to use hot milk, the best point is between 150 and 155 degrees (Fahrenheit). You should not let the milk come to a boil. If it does, you'll have to throw it out and start over, because it won't froth and it will taste awful.
Step by step:
1. Choose your milk drink or type of milk and add it to a container large enough to swirl and have room for the froth to "grow".
3. Insert the milk frother into the milk. Turn it on. Be sure to turn it on when you have inserted it into the milk to avoid splashing.
The exact time will vary, but at a minimum, count on doing it for 25-30 seconds.The longer you submerge it, the more the milk will foam.
5. Pour it into your drink when it's ready and enjoy a frothy cup of coffee.
