I went through a phase recently where I couldn’t drink my coffee from home. I got so used to McDonald’s coffee and how it tasted that not even Starbucks could come close. So I found myself at the drive-thru each morning. As you can imagine, my inner frugalness was screaming at me.
Then my mom introduced me to this amazing invention: a milk frother. I’ve always heard of them and thought why in the world would frothy milk even be something that was desirable. But after she made a couple of lattes for me with her new one, I was sold. I got me one the next week and haven’t been back to McDonald’s since!
I picked this Aroma AFR-120B Hot X-press Milk Frother and have been making myself lattes. It’s cheaper than most out there. It seems like a splurge item, but I figure that since I’m not making my way to McDonald’s each morning that I’m saving money in the end. Ok maybe it is a splurge item.
There’s a bunch more frothers here.
Want to know my favorite recipe for a latte?

- 1 cup of coffee strongly brewed (smallest setting on Keurig)
- 2 tbsp Caramel flavoring syrup (sugar-free)
- Brew the cup of coffee.
- Add 2 tbsp caramel syrup and mix well.
- Pour frothed creamer on top of coffee.
