#COOKING WITH CLORIS--QUICK & EASY CAPPUCCINO

Cappuccino is yummy but expensive. You either have to buy a cappuccino machine or go to a pricey coffee shop for the real thing. So-called cappuccino at fast-food places and concoctions that supermarkets sell to make at home cappuccino without a machine are loaded with chemicals. If you’re a coffee aficionado, you don’t want anything in your cappuccino other than coffee or espresso and milk, right?

I recently came across a method for making cappuccino without a cappuccino machine, and it really works. All you need is a Mason or other microwavable jar and a microwave.

Fill the jar halfway with nonfat, 1%, or 2% milk (Whole milk won’t foam as well.) Place the lid on the jar and shake vigorously for a minute. Remove the lid, and microwave the milk for 30 seconds. The froth will magically rise to the top of the jar. Pour the milk into a hot cup of coffee or espresso, and spoon the remaining foam on top. Voila! Cappuccino without the cappuccino machine!
