You can give your homemade coffee quite a pick-me-up with frothed milk. (No it doesn't turn your morning coffee into a latte. To do that you would have to have an espresso machine to make the espresso and then pour the frothed milk onto the espresso.) But believe me you will become a true believer, in how wonderful frothed milk makes everyday coffee taste.

How to Froth Milk? Start with non-fat milk. Yes, if you like the taste or are drinking it because of health reasons, you'll be happy to know that non-fat milk froths the best. If you can't tolerate non-fat milk, try 2% milk. But if you only want whole milk, don't worry, you can froth that up into a rich foam as well. Take a one touch milk frother similar to the ones show to the right and hold it just below the surface. Push the button on the milk frother and watch the foam. As the foam bubbles up, keep the milk frother just below the surface of the froth. You can work with both hot and cold milk. If I have several cups of coffee or milk to froth, then I put it in a frothing pitcher, whip it up, and then pour it into individual cups.

You can froth both hot and cold milk. You can also make and assemble your beverage such as hot cocoa and then use your milk frother machine to give it a fluffy rich consistency. Top it off with canned whipped cream and then drizzle chocolate or caramel sauce on top - just like the coffee shop does.

If you don't want to have to stand and foam milk the Nespresso Aeroccino Plus is a great alternative. You just pour in hot or cold milk and a nice stiff foamy milk emerges in a little over a minute. If you have a stovetop espresso machine lattes and cappuccinos can easily be made with these. My only quibble is that I like really hot milk and these machines never seem to get it hot enough for my taste.
