I was provided with a complimentary Ozeri Milk Frother to facilitate this review. The opinions in this post are 100% mine. You can read my full disclosure policy here.
I love my coffee. I am pretty much addicted to my Keurig for hot coffee and the thought of it is what gets me moving in the morning. But when summer strikes it’s hard to get excited about drinking something hot, even if it is your lifeline. So I’m a big fan of iced coffee and have been guzzling it down the past few days in this 90 degree heat.
In addition to my Keurig coffee, the other thing I’m addicted to is those flavored creamers. Fat Free French Vanilla is my favorite. But boy, have you ever looked at the ingredients list? YIKES. There’s a load of stuff in there I can barely pronounce. Not good. Ozeri is one of my favorite companies for unique and useful kitchen gadgets and I knew as soon as I got this awesome Milk Frother that I was going to jazz up my coffee with it. And I got rid of a bunch of nasty chemicals in my drink in the process! The Milk Frother comes with 4 attachments: 2 frothers, 1 egg beater, and 1 cocktail mixer. (The cocktail mixer is fantastic, by the way!) I love the design – sleek and slim it doesn’t take up much counter space and sits on a nice little stand. It comes with batteries so you can use it right out of the box, and with the push of a button you’re in business!
I decided to whip up a Vanilla Mocha Iced Coffee with my new milk frother. I was able to actually froth the milk a bit right in the drink, but then I added more on top for good measure. Watch out Starbucks! This took me all of 2 minutes to whip up and it’s soooo yummy!
- 1 mug of coffee
- 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon of cocoa powder
- Sugar or sugar substitute to taste (I used two teaspoons of sugar)
- Milk to taste (add it until it's the color you like)
- Glass of ice cubes
To the mug of hot coffee add the vanilla, cocoa, sugar, and milk. Use the frother attachment on the Ozeri Milk Frother to mix.
This part is important: Submerge the frother BEFORE you turn it on. Trust me on this one.
The milk will froth a bit already! But for some added foam on top, pour a little extra milk into a small dish, submerge the frother, turn it on, and whip up some more pretty topping.
Pour your coffee into the glass of ice cubes to make iced coffee. You can drink it hot, too, if you'd like. Then pour the extra frothed milk on top. You can sift some cocoa powder over the top if you want to get fancy.
