Ingredients for Easy Homemade Cappuccino for 2 people

  • 115 ml of freshly brewed espresso
  • 230 ml of whole milk
  • 115 ml of milk foam

How to make the recipe Easy Homemade Cappuccino

  1. Heat the milk in a pot over medium heat until it's hot. Do not let the milk boil.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare the espresso in your espresso machine or preferred brewing method.
  3. Use a milk frother to create the foam. Make sure the milk is hot before you start frothing it.
  4. If you don't have a frother, you can do it this way: put the milk in a jar with a lid or airtight container. Cover it well and shake it vigorously for 30 seconds to a minute, and you'll see how well it turns out.
  5. And if you prefer, you can also do it with a blender for 2 minutes, and your foam will look spectacular. Make sure the milk is hot and move the blender or mixer up and down to create bubbles.
  6. Divide the espresso between two cups.
  7. Add the hot milk to each cup, leaving a little space at the top for the milk foam. Pour it slowly so that the foam remains for the end.
  8. Using a spoon, place the milk foam on top of each cup.
  9. Finally, if you want, you can sprinkle it with ground cinnamon or cocoa powder. And if you like it with sugar or sweeteners, you can add them.
