Maple Cinnamon Latte
When the days grow chilly and blustery, and the leaves turn brilliant shades of red, gold, orange, and brown, a morning latte isn’t far from our minds.
Flavored lattes, like Pumpkin Spice Latte in the fall, are always a favorite with the warming mix of spices inspired by the pumpkin season.
And as the days grow even darker and colder, adding a London Fog Drink is always a welcome pleasure.
This Maple Cinnamon Latte will be yet another flavored latte to add to the fall and winter beverages we love. Plus, it’s incredibly easy to make at home with a few simple ingredients.
How to Froth Milk
Begin by heating the milk. Here are the best tips on which milk to use and how to heat it.
- Use fresh milk: This is key to getting the best foam. Milk that has sat in the refrigerator for awhile doesn’t foam as well as fresh milk.
- Whole milk foams best because it has the highest milkfat. A 2% milk also works.
- Scald the milk for best results. This means, the milk will be hot but not simmering.
Tools for Frothing Milk
It isn’t necessary to have specific tools to froth milk, although they make the process easier for sure. Here are two ways to froth milk.
How to Froth Milk with a Milk Frother
A handheld milk frother is one of the easiest tools to use when frothing milk. It’s inexpensive and a great tool to have on hand. Here’s how to use it.
- Heat the milk to scalding.
- Transfer milk to a tall container and hold at an angle.
- Move the frother up and down until foam begins to form, about 20 seconds. Tap on the counter to break up large bubbles.
How to Froth Milk with a Whisk
If you don’t have a handheld milk frother on hand, you can also use a whisk to froth milk. This method takes a bit longer and doesn’t result in a foam that is as bubbly. Here’s how to froth milk with a whisk.
- Heat the milk to scalding.
- Whisk the milk vigorously until foamy.
- Pour into a pitcher, and tap on the counter to break down large bubbles.
