Early last weekend when I was the first one up, I felt like messing around with my normal black coffee. I considered a doughnut excursion, though the little one dozed until 9 and I wasn’t going to interrupt that! After a quick google to sort through how to steam milk without some fancy contraption. I went with this shake-milk-in-a-jar method.
8 oz coffee
2 tbs nutella
3-4 oz milk (suggested lower fat milk)
Brew hot coffee.
Add the hot coffee to a small pot over medium heat. Add nutella to the coffee.
Stir well while allowing nutella to melt.
Add milk into the jar (not more than half full).
Shake for about a minute. The milk should double in size.
Microwave in the jar for about 30-seconds.
Pour the coffee into a mug. Gently pour the milk over the coffee, spoon any remaining froth out of the jar onto the coffee.
I loved this. It was seriously nutella flavored. My ratio of nutella to coffee is definitely hefty but I was serious about this drink being a treat. I normally drink my coffee black.
