Nespresso Aeroccino hack

Nespresso hackI come from a family of coffee drinkers. Every morning like clockwork, each person walks up to the Nespresso machine to get his or her first fix of the day. Personally, I’m not really a fan of Nespresso but do I love the Aeroccino – it’s quick, convenient and can do much more than froth milk for your latte.

Rose Earl Grey Latte

This all started when I was foolishly trying to kick my coffee habit and fueled up on tea lattes to ease the urge (I now know that it is a deliciously futile fight that I am happy to lose). While waiting impatiently in yet another Starbucks line and cursing my caffeine-deprived self for spending seven dollars on a soy matcha latte, I set out on a mission to create a healthier, cheaper version.

Once I got my hands on good quality, reasonably priced matcha powder – you’ll want to use the good stuff for drinking – it was as simple as figuring out the ideal measurements for a recipe. If you’re going to use soy milk, it might be worth noting that a slightly sweeter version works best to complement the bitterness of matcha. Personally, I tried out Bonsoy, Pacific and Soy Dream before sticking with the latter.

It wasn’t long before I began experimenting the heck (sorry I had to) out of the Aeroccino and honestly, it really is a fun little gadget. Get a few friends together and mix it up. It’s great for creating a silky hot chocolates and whizzing up homemade tea infusions, but here are two favourites from my Aeroccino hack. Enjoy.

      Hi Yeni,

      Thanks for your note — so sorry for missing it! If I can get my friends to bring back some from Kyoto, that’s always my first choice. Otherwise, Lupicia in Singapore brings in a pretty great matcha powder too.

      Enjoy all the GTLs x

    Great hack thank you! I went out to buy matcha powder right away. I’ve been wanting to do this for a while but never had the patience to make the drink or whisk it perfectly. It’s a breeze now!

    Also read on another blog to use it for chocolate milk and now I get clump free perfect chocolate milk every time 🙂

    A little tip, put the milk in first then the powder otherwise the powder may burn a little on the bottom, easy to clean but still.
