If you have been around awhile you have come to know (and hopefully love) our Monday K-cup coffee recipes. I love fun, easy to make coffee drinks. They are a simple indulgence that can usually be made with ingredients already in your kitchen. There will be no running to the local coffee shop around here, no sir, we have Keurig’s in our kitchen that make these recipes easy peasy.
Up this week…cappuccino.
This week we are revisiting an oldy but a goody thanks to a reader request and my craving for a delicious cappuccino! Of course this cappuccino will be made with my Keurig brewer and one new handy tool that I have come to love:
Friends, meet my milk frother… he may look small but he can make a mean cappuccino! These handheld units are simple to use, take up very little space and can usually be purchased for under $10 (in fact I picked mine up for $2). In addition they are a perfect partner with your Keurig brewer to make homemade coffee-house beverages!
Lets get to the recipe, you will need:
1 cup of milk (I used 2% but, prefer whole)
1 Dark Magic extra bold Keurig Kcup coffee (or any dark roast, extra bold Kcup coffee)
a milk frother
-Start by heating the milk in the microwave or on the stovetop to desired temperature.
-Meanwhile brew the Dark Magic Kcup coffee on the lowest water setting of your Keurig into a very large mug.
-Next, froth the warm milk. If you are using a handheld frother, place it in the middle of the mug just deep enough into the milk that you can still see the spirals on the end of the unit. Move the frother in small up and down motions creating a vortex. The milk should nearly double and appear stiff and somewhat bubbly.
-Finally slowly pour the prepared milk into the large mug containing the Dark Magic coffee.
-Top with cinnamon if desired, sip and enjoy!
I have always been a latte girl but, recently cappuccinos have become my number one coffee-house treat. They are so simple to make but, pack a powerful, satisfying punch!
How about you- are you team latte or team cappuccino?
