How To Make Oat Milk Latte With Keurig?
Step 1: Brew your favorite dark roasted K-cup using the smallest cup option on your Keurig machine. The 4 oz cup size would be ideal, but you can also use a 6 oz cup if that’s the smallest size on your coffee maker.
Step 2: Pour 4 ounces of cold oat milk into the milk frother and froth until hot and foamy. If you don’t have a frother, you can heat the oat milk on the stovetop in a small saucepan until steaming. Then use a hand frother or whisk to froth the milk.
Step 3: Slowly add the steamed oat milk to your coffee while stirring. Sweeten to taste with maple syrup or any other sweetener of your choice.
Step 4: Spoon the froth on top of your latte and enjoy!
Gather Your Ingredients And Equipment
Before you can make your delicious oat milk latte with your Keurig machine, you will need to gather a few ingredients and equipment. Here’s what you’ll need:
Brew Your Espresso Or Coffee
To make a delicious oat milk latte with your Keurig machine, the first step is to brew your favorite dark roasted K-cup using the smallest cup option. This will give you a strong and flavorful base for your latte.
If you prefer a stronger coffee flavor, you can also use two K-cups or a double shot of espresso instead of one.
Once your coffee is brewed, it’s time to heat and froth your oat milk. Pour 4 ounces of cold oat milk into your milk frother and froth until hot and foamy. If you don’t have a frother, you can heat the oat milk on the stovetop in a small saucepan until steaming. Then use a hand frother or whisk to froth the milk.
The key to a good latte is the texture of the milk, so make sure to froth it until it’s nice and creamy. You can also add a touch of maple syrup or any other sweetener of your choice to the oat milk before frothing for added flavor.
Next, slowly add the steamed oat milk to your coffee while stirring. This will help to blend the flavors together and create a smooth and creamy latte.
Finally, spoon the froth on top of your latte and enjoy! You can also sprinkle some cinnamon or cocoa powder on top for added flavor and presentation. With these simple steps, you can easily make a delicious oat milk latte with your Keurig machine at home.
Froth Your Oat Milk
Frothing oat milk can be a bit tricky as it doesn’t have the same fat content as regular milk. However, with the right technique, you can still achieve a creamy and frothy texture for your latte.
One method is to use a blender or food processor. Pour your desired amount of oat milk into the blender or food processor and blend on high speed until it starts to thicken and build foam. It’s best to only blend enough milk for two drinks at a time to ensure you get a nice amount of foam in each latte. Once the oat milk has thickened and formed foam, pour it into a microwave-safe bowl and heat it for about 30-45 seconds.
Another method is to use a handheld frother. Heat your oat milk on the stovetop or in the microwave until hot but not boiling. Then, place the frother in the milk and turn it on until it starts to froth. Move the frother up and down in the milk to create more foam.
If you don’t have a frother or blender, you can still achieve a frothy texture by shaking the oat milk vigorously in a sealable glass jar until it doubles in size and becomes frothy. Then, remove the lid and microwave for a minute or until a froth appears on top.
Remember that oat milk doesn’t froth as easily as regular milk, so be patient and experiment with different methods to find what works best for you.
Combine Your Espresso And Oat Milk
If you prefer a stronger coffee flavor in your oat milk latte, you can use espresso instead of a regular cup of coffee. To do this, simply brew a shot of espresso using your Keurig machine or an espresso maker.
Next, heat up your oat milk in a small saucepan until it reaches a steaming temperature. If you want to add some sweetness to your latte, you can whisk in some maple syrup or any other sweetener of your choice.
Once your espresso is ready, pour it into your mug. Slowly add the steamed oat milk to the espresso while stirring. Be sure to pour the milk slowly to create a layered effect in your latte.
Finally, spoon the froth on top of your latte and enjoy! You can use a handheld frother or blender to create the froth, or simply use a spoon to skim the foam off the top of the heated milk. With this simple recipe, you can enjoy a delicious and creamy oat milk latte right at home using your Keurig machine.
Add Your Sweeteners Or Flavorings (Optional)
If you prefer a sweeter latte, you can add your favorite sweetener or flavoring to your oat milk latte. Some popular options include maple syrup, honey, vanilla extract, or even a sprinkle of cinnamon. You can add your sweetener or flavoring to the oat milk before frothing it or directly to your coffee before adding the frothed oat milk. Remember to taste and adjust as needed to achieve your desired level of sweetness. Experiment with different flavors and find your favorite combination!
