Keurig Milk Frother

The nice thing about Keurig is that they offer a full line of products that compliment the Single Serve Coffee Maker. One item is the Keurig Milk Frother. Now you can make all of your favorite coffee shop drinks at a fraction of the cost. The Keurig milk frother makes the drinks you make at home as fancy as your favorite restaurant. Lattes, hot chocolate and coffee drinks will have that special touch.

This stainless steel milk frother has an 8.5 ounce capacity. The one piece pitcher is easy to use and easy to clean. The beautiful think is you just push one button for perfectly frothed milk. At just 7 inches by 4 inches it is easy to store. The only attachments you will need are the stirrer and the whisk and they are included.

Using the Keurig Milk Frother

To use the milk frother, all you do is add milk and push the button. Fortunately, for our waistlines, 2% or skim milk works the best. For frothed milk, simply push the button and stir the milk into froth. If you just want hot milk, just remove the whisk attachment and heat the milk.

While the Keurig coffee machine doesn't make lattes exactly, by adding this froth you can easily make a latte at home. Here is a little trick to make your favorite latte.

A typical caf latte is made with espresso, steamed milk, and a layer of foamed milk. Here is a simple recipe you can make even without the milk frother.

Coffee Latte Recipe to make at home!

Brew 1 K-Cup of dark roast coffee. (Good choice suggestions: Green Mountain Espresso blend, Sumatra Roast, or maybe Caribou's Mahogany Roast)

Pour 4 ounces of the brewed coffee into a separate mug

Heat 6 oz of milk in the milk frother

Pour just 4 ounces of the heated milk into the mug with the coffee, and stir

Add 2 ounces of frothed milk to the top of the latte

Make it special! Add sweetener to taste and garnish with shaved chocolate, cinnamon powder or nutmeg.

If you don't have the milk frother, you can heat the milk on the stove until it is hot. Again, pour 4 ounces of the milk into your cup, but keep back the other 2 ounces. Put the 2 ounces in your blender and blend until it is foamy. Pour this on top of your latte.

Your clean up will be quicker, and your milk will heat a lot faster with the milk frother.

The secret to cleaning the frother is, number one, only heat the amount of milk you are going to use immediately, and number 2, clean it as soon as your can. Don't leave the froth sitting there for any length of time. Carefully and thoroughly clean both pieces, and don't submerge the pitcher in water.

For a really special drink you can make at home, add one-half of a capful of flavored syrup, such and French vanilla, caramel, or white chocolate to the milk BEFORE you heat it.

Your next dinner party will leave your guests talking about the great restaurant quality latte or espresso that you can make at home.

Wonderful blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?
I'm hoping to start my own website soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
Would you advise starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option?
There are so many choices out there that I'm totally overwhelmed .. Any ideas? Thanks a lot!
