DIY latte foam

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 presetAll you need to foam milk at home is a mason jar, a microwave, and milk.

I make espresso all the time, but rarely ascends to the level of a latte. That requires warm, frothy milk, instead of just pouring it into my travel mug on the way out the door.

Turns out, it’s super easy to foam milk. There are all kinds of machines to do it for you, of course. But in a pinch (or on a budget) I made some pretty lovely foam for my latte like this. Here’s how you do it:

  1. Pour milk into jar.
  2. Put lid on it, shake it up, take the lid off.
  3. Microwave until hot.
  4. Pour it over your coffee, and you’re done!

Beautiful. You are now a latte-making master.
