Milk Frothers: Why Use It and What Can You Use It For?

Milk Frothers: Why Use It and What Can You Use It For? - Zulay Kitchen

If you've heard the term "milk frother" then you can probably deduce that it's a device used to froth milk. But what else can a milk frother be used for? And why do people use one in the first place? This quick article will answer both questions, plus give you a list of milk frother recipes to try out!

5 Reasons Why People Use a Milk Frother


1. Give Standard Drinks an Upgrade

Using a milk frother can give a fresh new take on old fashioned drinks. Adding a layer of foamy milk froth makes the texture of the drink richer and creates a new taste experience! Using a milk frother to add a layer of froth makes your drinks look and taste like a professional barista made them, but in the comfort of your own home.

2. At Home Cafe

Speaking of being your own professional barista, milk frothers are a great way to get your daily cafe fix without ever leaving your house! You can make the same quality drinks that you would order anywhere else, but you're saving time and money by making them at home. Plus you're in complete control of what ingredients/flavors and how much goes into your drinks! If you have a manual or electric handheld milk frother, then you can easily transport your own little cafe with you wherever you go!

3. Easy and Convenient

Regardless of what type of milk frother you're using, they are all very easy to use. This is a huge reason why more and more people are starting to incorporate milk frothers into their coffee routines. It's a relatively easy tool for all experience levels to use when making their ideal drink.

4. Coffee Art

Latte Art
A milk frother does not help you in creating the actual coffee art, but it does give you a platform for your coffee art. By whipping up a thick layer of foam for your coffee, you have a nice base to incorporate all kinds of coffee designs! And the less time you spend creating this base, the more time you can spend designing!

5. Tradition

If you're looking to stick to traditional ways of making some coffee drinks, then a milk frother is a must. Cappuccinos, lattes, macchiatos, and more are traditionally made with a top layer of foam milk (which is different than steamed milk which some of these drinks might also include). Using a milk frother is the easiest way to keep tradition when creating these coffee drinks.

Adding protein powder to single servings is much easier when you can mix it with a milk frother! You don't have to use a blender and you won't have any powder residue leftover.
