How to make homemade steamed milk ~ cappuccino and latte recipes

No need to buy any special equipment to make steamed milk at home.   Enjoy a warm cup of cappuccino at home instead of Starbucks today.  Save yourself a pretty penny by the end of the year easily learning how to make homemade steamed milk for yourself & turn it into your favorite coffee drink.

Each week I save money without giving up my love of specialty coffees, by making a few at home.

My personal favorite drink is a homemade mocha cappuccino (a Mochaccino) with chocolate syrup drizzled in the bottom of the cup before making my cappuccino!  YUM!!

 

Homemade steamed milk recipe:  Here is how to make homemade steamed milk with no special equipment.  You need a glass jar, lid and a microwave!   Put 1/4 – 1/2 cup milk in a microwave safe jar (like a ball canning jar) with the lid off.  Warm milk until it’s steamy.  Put the lid on and shake vigorously for 1 minute — add your preferred amount of milk and foam to your coffee.  I use this same recipe for milk, cream or half-and-half!

 CAPPUCCINO: It’s equal parts coffee, milk and milk froth, then flavored anyway you fancy.

Make At Home Cappuccino Recipe::

2 ounces espresso (or very strong brewed coffee)

2 ounces milk froth

After making the easy homemade steamed milk and froth.  First, put your favorite sweetener or flavoring into the coffee cup.  Next, add hot espresso. And followed by 2 ounces steamed milk and topped off with the milk froth.

Mochaccino::  To make my personal favorite ~ Homemade Mocha Cappuccino, First, drizzle 1/2 – 1 tablespoon of Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup in the cup (up the sides too) do this before adding espresso and milk.  After the milk & froth is added, drizzle a few swirls of chocolate syrup on top!

LATTE:  Milkier than a cappuccino.
It’s espresso and double the amount of milk topped with a dollop of milk froth.

Make At Home Latte Recipe::

2 ounces espresso (or very strong brewed coffee)
4 ounces steamed milk
1 ounce of milk froth

After making the easy homemade steamed milk and froth.  First, put your sweetener or flavoring of choice into the coffee cup.  Next, add hot espresso followed by 4 ounces steamed milk and topped off with just a dollop of milk froth.
