Milk Frothers: Why Use It and What Can You Use It For?
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
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
If you're looking to stick to traditional ways of making some coffee drinks, then a milk frother is a must.

Using a milk frother is the easiest way to keep tradition when creating these coffee drinks.
