DIY "Low Fat" Cappuccino
1 tsp instant coffee like Nescafe
2 tsp white granulated sugar
Milk, 2% fat content but you can use any
In a strong thick cup, add coffee and sugar along with 1/2 tsp of milk. Why strong cup? We are going to be stirring continuously for almost 10-15 minutes. I don’t want your cups to get damaged. Milk is used only as a binding agent and for the ease of working. Start stirring the mix. If the mix feels too dry, add more milk, 1/2 tsp at a time. As you can see from the first pic above, it starts with a very very dark colour and with time it will change to pale and creamy. That’s what gives it flavour. Once you have reached that stage where mix looks pale and is quite thick, transfer the mix to your desired cup. I like using a combination of 1/4 parts water + 3/4 parts milk. Warm the milk – water combo until it is almost boiling. Add it to the cup containing coffee mix from some height to make froth. Mix and enjoy.
NOTE: While making coffee mix, if you feel that you like more stronger cappuccino, go ahead and adjust instant coffee amount accordingly. So goes with sugar.
