READY IN: 10 minutes

MAKES: 1 serving

INGREDIENTS

2 teaspoons instant coffee
¼ cup boiling filtered water
½ cup milk

EQUIPMENTS

Microwave
Blender
Microwave-safe measuring cup
Teaspoon
Mug (for serving)

DIRECTIONS

Combine the instant coffee and the boiling filtered water in a coffee mug. Mix well until the coffee is completely dissolved.
Place the milk in your microwave-safe measuring cup and microwave, uncovered, on high for about one minute. The milk will get hot and start to form small bubbles around the edge of the cup.
Remove from the microwave, and pour half the milk into your blender. Blend on high for about 3 minutes, until the milk turns to froth.
In your serving mug, mix the espresso with the remaining steamed milk and top with the milky foam. Now you have a rich, tasty cappuccino that’s ready to be enjoyed!
Because this is a basic recipe, we didn’t include any add-ons like sugar for example, so you are welcome to add your own touch and tailor it to your tastes. A dust of cinnamon powder or cocoa powder is a popular addition to the basic cappuccino. Also, you could add a teaspoon of sugar to the milk-espresso mixture before you add the foam, if you want your cappuccino to be a little sweet. Whether you choose to add any other ingredients is all up to you, but with this basic recipe, your cappuccino will sure to be fantastic!

  1. I really enjoy to have a cappuccino from time to time, but don’t want to buy a machine for it. Good to know you can make them at home.
    I guess you could heat the milk on the stove if you don’t have a microwave?
