My love for coffee continues to grow more and more each day. Sometimes I drink black coffee (lately I’ve been obsessed with this Four Sigmatic mushroom coffee) but most of the time I prefer something a little smoother like a latte or cappuccino. However, daily trips to Starbs or the local coffee shop add up easily. Think about it. If you buy coffee five days a week at almost five bucks a pop, that’s about $100/month just on coffee. But I have a solution-get a milk frother!

I have a Nespresso frother that came with my Vertuo coffee machine but you can buy the frother separately. I recommend using this type of frother over a handheld. I used to have a handheld frother and although it’s cheaper, it doesn’t heat the milk, it makes a mess because the milk splatters everywhere, and the milk doesn’t get nearly as frothy as it does with a heated frother. The type of milk plays a huge part as well but with a standing heated frother, this hasn’t been as big of an issue! Just be sure to look out for carrageenans in your milk. You can learn more about this ingredient here. Lately, I’ve been making my own almond milk so it’s 100% natural and let me tell you, it’s ah-mazing!! You can find my easy 5-minute almond milk recipe here.
The Nespresso frother is a bit on the pricier side so I’m also listing some other great options that come with a lower price tag!
