  5. Ways to Froth Milk for Your Coffee at Home

    Ways to Froth Milk for Your Coffee at Home

    Foamed milk is a great addition to beverages like coffee, tea, and hot chocolate – and you can now enjoy it in the comfort of your home without heading to the nearest cafe.

    Whether you have an espresso machine or not, here are some ways you can froth milk for your morning brew at home.

    Which Milk to Use?

    As the proteins and fats present in milk are responsible for creating that creamy froth, whole milk is often the best choice.

    For a healthier alternative, skimmed or non-fat milk still does the job well although the froth loses some of its richness. But if you are a novice home barista, these types of milk are the easiest to practice with.

    Dairy-free alternatives such as soy and oat milk can be used. However, the lack of fat will result in a milder flavour and thinner froth.

    Lactose-intolerant? We evaluate five common, plant-based milk and how they measure up to regular cow’s milk.

    All things considered, all kinds of milk can be used for frothing as it’s a matter of taste and personal preference. Just ensure that you always use fresh, cold milk straight from the refrigerator as it is key in achieving a good froth.
