DIY Milk Froth
Frothy Milk Without a Steaming Wand
If warm, frothy milk is needed and you do not have a steaming wand available, try this trick: pour 4 oz. of whole milk into a shaker tin. Cap and shake vigorously for 30 seconds, then pour into a microwave safe mug and microwave for 30 seconds. You will have thick, foamy milk to use for hot cocoas, steamers or to re-create your favorite coffee/espresso based beverages.
Use a spoon to hold back the foam as you pour the heated milk into the serving cup, then scoop the desired amount of foam on top.
