Cappuccino Recipe Without an Expensive Machine

Cappuccino is an espresso coffee that is mixed (or topped) with steamed milk or cream. As good as it is, it will cost you many a deniro at a place like Starbucks OR you can purchase an espresso cappuccino maker to display on your own kitchen counter for about $600. That's a lot for a machine that specializes in gourmet flavored coffee. For the rest of us, here's an easy Cappuccino recipe for all those weekend mornings at home when you want to treat yourself to something special AND all you need is a microwave and blender. To brew 2 cups of this coffee you need:


  1. 1) After your coffee has brewed, combine the sugar & milk and heat it in your microwave for 2 minutes at the highest setting.
  2. 2) Next, whip the heated milk/sugar mix in your blender for about one minute until it's a fluffy foam.
  3. 3) Fill your cup two thirds full with the coffee and top it off with your heated froth.

Thanks for sharing your easy tips on how to make a cappuccino. I do love to make a cappuccino without an expensive machine too. But I don't use a microwave when it comes to frothing the milk. In order for me to create a lasting foam, I use a handheld milk frother which I found at amazon, This foam maker is very easy to use and a great device in making foams on lattes.

Easy and yummy way to start the morning! I used decaf and almond milk, with turbinado sugar. (((Big Smile)))
