All you need is a cup of your favorite brew, a jar with a lid, milk, and an optional flavoring such as vanilla. Feel free to explore new flavors like almond extract or even rum extract. Also, I used skim milk since that is what I had on hand, but if you want a little bit of a richer flavor you can use a 1% or 2%, since you won't be adding that much milk anyway. I'm not sure if soy or almond milks will froth up like cow's milk does, but feel free to try, and let me know!
Now comes the workout. Shake the jar for about 30 seconds until the milk becomes foamy. And take the lid off.
I added a shake of cinnamon for some more flavor and pizazz! Cocoa powder or nutmeg would be good too. Now the calorie count would depend on what kind of milk was used but, in any case it would be very low in calories and in sugar. As compared to a leading chain cappuccino at about 140 calories and 15 grams of sugar. Not to mention about $4.00, when this can be made for pennies. Hope you enjoy this money saving, calorie saving cappuccino and as always explore new flavors!
