  1. Pour your milkinto a glass jar. Any kind of milk works for this technique; however, skim milk works best, as it froths easily.
  2. Shake the milk until it is frothy. Shake the jar of milk up and down until it has doubled in volume.
  3. Microwave the milk uncovered for 30 seconds.
  4. Pour the milk and froth into your mug.

Can you froth half and half? Hold back the foam and pour the steamed half-and-half into a mug. Half-and-half can indeed be frothed and is, in fact, the main essential element of a breve cappuccino. And, as it turns out, the process is nearly identical to frothing regular milkproducts.

What is the difference between steamed milk and foamed milk? Steamed milk is produced by heating the milk with the steam wand. Steamed milk is the cornerstone of the traditional latte. Frothed milk is produced not only by heating the milk with the steam wand, but by using it toinject air into the milk, creating small bubbles that will become the foam on your cappuccino.

Are lattes fattening? Verdict: Surprisingly unhealthy. A large latte contains almost one third of the daily recommended fat intake for women. Add a vanilla shot and you 380 calories and 14.5g of fat in each large cup. Soya milk contains 50 calories more per large serving, but is still healthier than whole milk.
