During the pandemic, I am taking taste-bud journeys as I self-isolate rather than physical journeys. Here is my adapted recipe for a Cappuccino drink mixed with coffee. I spent a lot of time researching just the right Cappuccino maker to purchase and a bit of time experimenting to achieve the flavor of drink that suited my taste buds the best. In case you're interested, I have placed a link to that appliance near the end of my blog.
- 2 tablespoons of whole powdered milk
- 1 tablespoon of instant coffee
- 2 tablespoons of your favorite flavor of Cappuccino. I really like Maxwell House Original Cappuccino as it is not too sweet.
- 8 ounces of water
Please note: You could use actual milk or almond milk in this recipe instead of powdered milk. I prefer this route as I rarely ever keep actual milk of any kind on hand.
Please also note: In case you're interested, this is the brand of whole powdered milk that I use.
- Step 1: In your cappuccino maker, spoon in 2 tablespoons of powdered milk.
- Step 2: Add in 1 tablespoon of instant coffee.
- Step 3: Spoon in 2 tablespoons of your cappuccino flavor of choice.
- Step 4: Add 8 ounces of cold water.
- Step 5: Turn on the milk frothing machine on the appropriate setting. I use level 3 that both heats and froths at the same time. See the photo for reference. This will run for 2 full minutes and then turn itself off.
- Step 6: Lift out the magnetized drink frother, shake off the excess froth, and rinse it off completely.
- Step 7: Pour your drink into a tall mug.
- Step 8: To clean the frother, rinse it out completely. Then add dishwashing liquid and water. Put the magnetized frother back into the Cappuccino maker. Turn on the 4th setting which is the frother that runs at cold temperature. Run that while you are enjoying your drink.
- Step 9: Afterward, you can rinse everything off and place into your drain.
