Who doesn’t love their $5 lattes, show of hands? Who likes paying $5 for them? That’s what I thought. In an effort to save some money and not go to Starbucks every weekend. I have started to make lattes at home.

What’s the key ingredients for a latte? Frothed milk and espresso. How does milk become frothy? Air and heat. I decided to try to froth my own milk using a mason jar.

How to froth milk in a mason jar

Fill your mason jar about half way. Place lid on the jar securely and shake for one minute. Make sure to shake it good. Remove the lid and microwave. The lid is metal so make sure you don’t put it in the microwave. Microwave the mason jar for 30 seconds and make sure to watch it because the foam will rise and you don’t want it to over flow. Now take your brewed coffee. I made an 10oz of coffee but you can also use 2 shots of espresso.

Thinking about getting a milk frother. I also have this Nespresso Aeroccino milk frother. Looking to upgrade your coffee maker to a Nespresso. This is the machine that I have and recommend.

  1. Ohmagosh. I should have done this instead of my disaster idea which was to pour hot milk into my ninja and turn it on. The heat of the milk popped the lid and milk went EVERYWHERE!!! haha Sharing!

  2. I used 2% milk, and after doing the 30 seconds in the microwave, there was no foam, and the milk “deflated” after shaking it. Any thoughts as to why that might be? Thanks for the recipe!

    1. Did you shake it before putting it into the microwave? You should give it a good shake for about a minute the microwave it.
