I got a new gadget last week. It’s made a complete change in my life. It’s satisfied my desire for a treat and it has saved me money! A treat that is actually a decent, healthful option. Aren’t you glad I am telling you about this?!
My sister introduced me to the fabulous frother. I bought one last week and have used it every day! What is a frother? It’s basically bringing Starbucks to your house. Use your favorite coffee, some milk and froth away to make a foamy confection and you have a fancy coffee drink for a fraction of the price. I love it because depending on what I am in the mood for I can make it half-caf or decaf. My favorite coffee drink so far is 1/2 coffee, 1/2 milk and a dash of cinnamon. Then I make it fluffy with the frother and top it off with more cinnamon. Sip and enjoy.
In the evening I like to make a steamer with honey and cinnamon. I just tried adding sugar-free vanilla syrup this morning. It was delish! Soon, I am going try a vanilla milkshake for the kids! I used the frother in the kids’ hot chocolate but they weren’t huge fans. I bet if I used it to make a milkshake, they might feel differently! I also want to get a chai mix to add to the repertoire. According to a review I read online, the frother also works well with almond milk!
I just wanted to share a fun, simple way to treat yourself to a fabulous treat for a fraction of the price you would pay at a coffee shop. I paid $20 for the frother. A coffee drink at Starbucks costs an average of $4.00. I have used it more than five times and so it’s already paid off for me.
The frother gives me an excuse to sit and be still. You can’t sip a fancy drink on the run. It’s a reason to take a breather, read a book, read devotions or write. I appreciate a moment to be still.
What yummy drink would you make with a frother? What encourages stillness for you? Leave a comment and let me know!
Where did you find the frother? My daughter and I have been working on making froth with steamed milk or cream and a wisk but this looks easier.
I got it at a cooking store in Atlanta. There are some similar ones on amazon. 😉 Happy frothing!
I’d try sugar free caramel, a little whipped cream, (doesn’t add too many calories, if sticking to 2T). I get tired in the afternoon, and love to sit or lie down with a good book.
That sounds yummy!
