Iced Coffee with Chilled Frothy MilkServes one


1 number two size coffee filter

2 cups of Water

2 Tablespoons whole roaster coffee beans, ground

1- cup of whole milk or nonfat Lactaid milk


Place ground coffee beans into a coffee machine. Add water. Close lid and press button until brewed.  Pour coffee into a jar or pitcher and allow it to cool down to room temperature.  Once cooled down cover and place coffee in the refrigerator over night.  To froth place the chilled milk into a mixing bowl.  Using an emulsifier to pulse or a mixer beat the milk for a minute or so until the milk becomes frothy in texture.  When ready to serve pour the chilled coffee into a tall glass filled with a few ice cubes or cubes made from the extra coffee.  Add the frothy milk. Stir to blend.  Remove the spoon from the glass and place it on the side of a plate, never directly on a cloth or table. Never leave a spoon in a glass when drinking as it is not only bad manners, one could injure one’s eye. Simple syrup may be used as a sweetener.

Frothing aerates the milk adding oxygen, which creates more body into the liquid.
