How to Make a Milk Steamer

Steamers are non-caffeinated, hot, milk-based drinks that can be very relaxing after a hectic day. A milk steamer is a delicious drink that is traditionally prepared by mixing frothy, steamed milk with a flavoured syrup such as vanilla, caramel, or hazelnut. This creamy beverage is popular in many coffee shops, and a coffee house will serve it even if it is not on the menu. If you find yourself craving a cup, however, you do not necessarily need to pay a visit to a coffee shop; making a super delicious milk steamer at home is also quite easy, and does not require any special ingredients.

Preparation Time: 3 min
Cooking Time: 3 min
Total Time: 6 min
Yield: 1 serving

– Milk: 2 cups
– Flavoured syrup: 3 oz (about 6 squirts from a Torani dispenser)
– Whipped cream (Optional): To taste
– Vanilla extract: 1/4 teaspoon (or to taste)


  • 1

    Get a steaming pitcher and pour about two cups of whole milk into it.

  • 2

    Prepare the steamer arm to heat the milk, making sure the aperture is clear and the steam can escape easily from the pitcher.

  • 3

    While the milk is steaming, prepare your cup for the drink, by pouring the flavouring of your choice into the bottom of the cup.

  • 4

    Steam the milk with a very small amount of froth on the top, but do not let it boil.

  • 5

    As the milk reaches the point just below boiling, immediately pour it out into the cup containing the flavouring. Pour the milk into the cup in such a way that it automatically combines with the flavouring, and you do not need to stir it.

    Top the drink with whipped cream, and serve immediately.
