Shake Your Latte Maker

During a recent hypoglycemic jaunt to Whole Foods, I came across a gadget I did not know I needed. Behold the Hario Latte Shaker: a simple plastic device that makes latte foam in about thirty seconds.

Fill to the line with ice cold milk.

I mean, this is genius. I love low tech stuff…I am one of those odd birds who were upset when they got rid of Scantrons and scratch paper for Important Exams.

Shake for about 30 seconds. Ludacris tunes optional.

Easy to use. Easy to wash. And really kind of unbelievable. I prefer to use whole or two percent milk. Haven’t tried soy milk but almond milk didn’t really foam up. Shake for about 30-40 seconds or until you feel less liquid in one half of the shaker because it has become foam. Don’t shake too long or you might get butter, which sounds delicious, but probably not in your coffee:

Voila!

Voila!

Good morning and Happy Monday!

    • You actually have to shake ice cold milk to get the foam! If you want hot foam, the instructions are to microwave the foam for ~10 seconds. I sometimes do, I sometimes don’t. I know how to live on the edge!
