Babyccino

Your kids will surely be impressed with this gorgeous homemade Babyccino!

A babyccino is essentially a Cappuccino, but without the coffee. A cupful of frothy milk goodness sometimes served with marshmallows and sprinkles. When my little one was about 2 years old we had a playdate at a local cafe with a very good friend who was visiting Budapest. It was then I was introduced to the babyccino. The babyccino is fostering the next generation of coffee drinkers. It’s a favourite with the little ones who want to be part of the coffee club and with parents who long for a few moments of peace while they enjoy their cup of java.

My daughter, I must say is a gourmet just like her mummy. She was not satisfied to have just a cup of frothy milk so I adapted it for her and the chocolate babyccino was born or as she calls it cocoa cappuccino. The cocoa cappuccino has now replaced ‘regular’ cocoa in our house.

I don’t recall how much we paid for the babyccino back then but from what I read nowadays the cost is anywhere from cents to $2. Say what? You can easily make this drink at home. All you need is a milk frother. I used the Aeroccino attached to my Nespresso Coffee Machine but you can also buy the Nespresso Aeroccino Plus Milk Frother separately.

I know there are a lot of cheaper milk frothers out there but the Nespresso Aeroccino has many advantages over them. You can froth any type of milk with this frother, dairy and nut milk alike foam beautifully. It creates hot or cold froth in an instant and the foam does not collapse as with a steam wand. You can even add a shot of pure extract to the milk before you froth it and suddenly your foam tastes like flavoured whipped cream. I cannot recommend it more. By the way Nespresso isn’t paying me to say all this.. 😉

Why not try it on Valentine’s Day. Go on indulge your little ones! Below my daughter will demonstrate the art of babyccino consumption.

    Ha. I think my son is weird because he’s loved coffee ever since he could ask for food. He wanted to try whatever daddy was having, so he tried coffee and loved it. So now my recently turned 4 year old now comes home from school and asks for me to make him coffee sometimes. (I make decaf because he’s already spunky enough!) I’m sure he’d love this too, though. 😉

      Awww Tracy that’s so awesome though. I only acquired the taste for coffee as an adult. My 1st time was in Italy when I had an espresso, I was hooked after that!
