How to Make a Vanilla Steamer {Capresso froth PLUS Review}

by Mama Chocolate on June 20, 2013

Our family has been enjoying using the Capresso froth PLUS to make all sorts of delicious drinks lately. There are dozens of tasty things you can do with this little machine, (find the recipes on the Capresso blog) but one of our favorites is the super simple Vanilla Steamer.

Vanilla Steamer Recipe


  • 8¬†ounces milk
  • 1-2 tsp vanilla extract (to taste)
  • 2 tsp sugar (or honey)


Using the heating disk, add milk to frothing pitcher and press warm button. After two minutes remove frother lid and add vanilla and sugar. Replace lid and wait for frother to automatically shut off.

Wait a minute or so for the milk and froth to settle before pouring your drink into a mug.




The Capresso froth PLUS makes amazing hot chocolate. The girls get so excited when I pull this out to make them a special drink. Bonus points for mama if they get to drink it out of tea cups.

Besides the hot chocolate and warm milk drinks we have tried, this little machine would be perfect for making fancy espresso drinks at home! Or how about a Frothed Mudslide? Oh. my. word. Acquiring those ingredients ASAP.

That looks like a great machine to have around! Or… a very dangerous machine… I might drink those drinks too often! ;)
