Cappuccino Recipe


Cappuccino Recipe - If you've ever visited a coffee house, you know that cappuccino drinks are all the rage-but what is cappuccino? In a nutshell, it's simply espresso that's prepared with steamed and frothed milk. Although it's delicious as a stand-alone beverage, there are many recipes for making cappuccino that offer a delightful and refreshing twist on this classic drink.

To successfully prepare cappuccino, you must first master the basic cappuccino. To make, add 2.5 ounces of steamed milk and 2.5 ounces of frothed milk to 2.5 ounces of espresso, and top with sprinkled cinnamon or cocoa. Using this basic cappuccino recipe as a foundation, prepare these delicious variations:

Iced Cappuccino
To make, pour 2.5 ounces of espresso over 5-6 ice cubes and add 2.5 ounces of cold milk. Top with 2.5 ounces of frothed milk.

Chocolate-Carmel Cappuccino
Add 1 ounce of chocolate syrup and 1 ounce of caramel syrup to a basic cappuccino.

Almond Cappuccino
To make this deliciously nutty cappuccino, add one ounce of almond espresso and one ounce of vanilla extract to 2.5 ounces of espresso. Next, add 2.5 ounces of steamed milk and top with 2.5 ounces of frothed milk.

Frappe Cappuccino
A frappe, or blended cappuccino, is a cinch to make. Simply brew 2.5 ounces of cappuccino and chill. Once cooled, add the espresso to a blender along with 4 ounces of milk, 2 TB of sugar, and one cup of ice. Blend until the ice is crushed and the ingredients are smooth.

Making cappuccino at home is a thrifty and fun alternative to purchasing blends at coffee houses. After mastering these delicious recipes, flex your creative muscles and develop your own tasty concoctions.
