Friday Favourite Things Vol. 66 – Milk Frother & A Chai Tea Latte

This week my favourite thing is a milk frother. I can’t believe it has taken me so long to buy one of these things. They are amazing!

When my best friend Brenda was here a few weeks ago she told me I should get one. So I walked over to the Wal Marts and bought myself one for under $10. It is a Chef's Bistro brand.

This thing works like a hot damn!  It runs on 2 double A batteries.
You just heat up your milk in a large-ish container then press the button and in a minute you have perfectly frothed milk.  

I have been making 1 or 3 of these Chai Tea Latte’s a day since I brought this frother home.

All you need to do is brew a Chai tea bag in 1 cup of hot water for 5 minutes. Add a little honey if you like. Heat ½ cup of milk (I have been using 1%) in the microwave for about 1 minute. Froth the milk for 1 minute or so then pour it over the tea. Sprinkle on a little cinnamon and you are in for a treat!

I would highly recommend getting one of these little frothers if you like lattes. I am sure it would make an awesome cup of hot chocolate as well.

I even tried frothing some heavy cream and it whipped it into pretty stiff whip cream in less than 2 minutes, which could be a little dangerous.

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend.



  1. So glad you got one and are enjoying it! Yay! Wish I could have a chai latte with you right now!

  2. My wife has a small hand held milk frother and she loves it. She makes cappuccino and latte all the morning. I think you and her share the same habit :)

  3. Love this milkfrother. As a portable milk frother its better for a traveler. Thanks for share it.
