A good cup of coffee is a daily staple for me. I often share easy to make coffee recipes with seasonal flavors, like this Pumpkin Spice Latte, and even coffee themed signs and decor here on the blog. Today I’m sharing details on the easiest way to foam milk plus a cute mason jar that will look great in your coffee station. Read on and learn how to foam milk in a mason jar.
Everyone takes their coffee in a different way. For me, a splash of real milk is really all I need, but coffee can be so much more with just a few delicious additions. One of my favorite ways to enjoy my morning coffee is with foamed milk and a dash of cinnamon. I make coffee this way so often I decided to dedicate a mason jar to it.
I grabbed a pint size mason jar and cut the word Milk from black vinyl using my Silhouette. I transferred the word to the clean jar and sealed it by pressing firmly to remove any bubbles. This permanent vinyl will hold up to hand washing and the microwave. I keep this jar in my coffee station next to my grounds and cinnamon, I love having everything at my fingertips for the perfect cup of coffee.
How to foam milk in a mason jar
Here’s the trick to a delicious and simple cup of coffee. Start with real milk, any fat level will do, and pour a quarter to half cup into a mason jar. Cover tightly and shake vigorously until foam forms. Remove the cap (no metal in the microwave) and heat for 30 seconds this will warm and set the foam. Then pour the milk into your mug of coffee and spoon the foam on top.
Sprinkle with a dash of cinnamon and you are all set! This is a creamy flavorful cup of coffee with just a hint of spice. It takes just a minute to make and is a great way to start the day. Not only does it tastes good, using real milk is a simple way to get natural, high-quality protein plus other nutrients we need to help power through the day. A full 8 grams of protein per 8 oz. serving of milk! And did you know dairy milk protein is a complete protein? Most plant proteins are incomplete, which means they’re missing some of the amino acids your body needs.
I stock up each week at my local Pick n’ Save so my whole family can enjoy milk with meals and treats.
After I foam my milk and add it to my coffee I typically make another cup of just foamed milk for my youngest and sprinkle on a little cinnamon. She thinks it’s the best treat!
Go on and enjoy that delicious cup of coffee and let your kids join in on the fun. You can feel good about serving milk to your family, it’s a wholesome beverage that is remarkably simple and contains just milk, vitamin A and vitamin D.
