Capresso Milk Frothers: More Than Just Beverages

February 19, 2015

We love our frothy beverages, but today we’re using Capresso’s Automatic Milk Frother for something different: creating a quick and nutritious breakfast. We added frothed non-fat milk to our favorite scrambled egg recipes for enhanced texture.

 

Apron Pour 300

 

 

Place the frothing disk into the froth enhancer of your Capresso froth TEC and ensure it is securely snapped inside the bottom of the milk pitcher. Simply pour the milk called for in your favorite scrambled egg recipe into the pitcher. Do not fill more than the maximum capacity, which is 10 ounces when frothing. Place the lid on top and press the cold-froth button. Wait for frother to automatically shut off. Add the frothed milk to the eggs and whisk vigorously until the froth is incorporated with the egg whites and yolks. Follow your recipe’s steps accordingly.

Frothed milk can be added to a variety of recipes. Learn about other ways you can use your Capresso automatic milk frother by visiting our Tips.
