Instant Coffee Combined with Shaken Milk (One serving)

Ingredients Needed for This Method

  • 2 teaspoons of instant coffee (some say Taster’s Choice to be the best to use for homemade cappuccino)
  • 1 cup of water
  • Sugar to taste
  • Milk to taste

Directions for This Method of Making Homemade Cappuccino

The first thing you’ll want to do when making this type of homemade cappuccino is to boil a cup of water in your microwave, a pot, or kettle. Take the boiling water and add your coffee and the desired amount of sugar you want to add.

  • Depending on the size of your coffee mug, the amount of milk you will use will vary. For your own personal tastes, you can reduce the amount of coffee or water as you wish.

The next thing you will want to do is to pour the amount of milk you want into a microwave safe bowl and heat the milk just until it starts to boil. Remove it from the microwave as soon as it starts to bubble a little and rise up in the bowl.

  • The time could vary depending on how much milk you are using as well as the kind of microwave you have. Normally it should take you less than 60 seconds to get it to boil.

Now you want to froth the milk. Pour your milk into a jar that has a lid that will twist on tight. Make sure when making the homemade cappuccino that the jar is big enough to hold enough milk to fill the jar up halfway. Put the lid on tight and then shake the jar very vigorously for 20 seconds or until the milk for your homemade cappuccino starts to form a froth on top.
