Frothed milk is a common ingredient in lattes and other hot drinks, adding texture and a pleasant visual variety to the beverage. While there are specific devices designed for frothing milk, you may use a hand blender to accomplish the same purpose. A hand blender is known as a stick blender or an immersion blender. Use it to give your homemade beverages a splash of frothed milk.

  1. 1

    Pour 2 cups of milk into a pot.

  2. 2

    Set the pot on the stove and heat it over medium until the milk is hot but not boiling. Ideally, there is a fine steam coming from the heated milk.

  3. 3

    Pour the milk into a bowl with tall sides. Hand blenders often come with tall bowls to mitigate splashing, but any tall bowl will do.

  4. 4

    Insert the blades of the stick blender completely into the milk.

  5. 5

    Start the blender, moving it slowly and down in the milk. Do not bring the blades up to the surface of the milk, as this causes splashing.

  6. 6

    Watch the surface of the milk. After about 1 minute a milk froth develops.

  7. 7

    Scoop the froth up with a spoon and place it in your beverage.
