Some of you may be wondering, “What the dickens is a dry cappuccino?” and we are here to answer that question for you, and also provide a tasty dry cappuccino recipe that will have you hooked on this foamy version of the classic coffee drink.
A dry cappuccino, unlike its name suggests, it not actually dry in the literal sense.

Ready in: 10 minutes
Makes: 1 serving

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.
