How to Froth Milk With Hand Blenders


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.

Things You'll Need

  • Milk
  • Pot
  • Tall bowl
  • Hand blender
  • Spoon
  • Pour 2 cups of milk into a pot.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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

  • 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.

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

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