How to Froth Milk with Colour for Vibrant-Looking Beverages
Now that you’ve mastered how to froth milk with the Keurig® Milk Frother, it’s time to get creative! Simply add a few drops of the food colouring of your choice to the milk before pressing the Froth button on your electric milk frother. If you’re making a latte or a cappuccino, we recommend choosing a colour that will complement the rich tone of the coffee, like pink or red. Carefully top your latte or cappuccino with the colourful frothed milk. For the most stunning results, make sure the froth doesn’t blend too much with the coffee before serving.
This tip also works for non-coffee specialty beverages. Beverages that are paler in colour, like Earl Grey or chai tea lattes, will maintain extra-bold colour and can be made in a rainbow of shades. It’s never been easier to learn how to use a milk frother for stunning beverages at home!
