How to Make a Babyccino

Thank you, Melissa Hermer from Ladies of London on Bravo for introducing me to babyccino. On one of the episodes, Melissa’s son asked, “Mummy, may I please have a babyccino?” How adorable is that question?! With an English accent?! OMG! However, this had me wondering, “What is a babyccino?”.

Here is what it is…..in cafes in Europe they serve children frothed milk with toppings. How simple and cute?

So I figured out how to make one for Little Miss Ava. And I might add she loved it! I served it to her in a kid sized Winnie the Pooh mug, I had from when I was little. I topped her drink with a sprinkle of cinnamon, cocoa powder, and a few chocolate chips (Click here to see my tip for putting cocoa powder in a shaker). The chocolate chips sank to the bottom and melted which made it a little like hot chocolate.

To make a babyccino you need a milk frother. Now you may be asking, “Why would you get a tool just to make your kid a drink?” The reason why is, now I can make myself my own LATTES. Yup. No more spending $5 on my grande caffe latte with coconut milk. I can make them in the comfort of my pjs in about 2 seconds. Wonderful!

The milk frother I purchased is a battery powered handheld one by Aerolatte…here’s a picture. milkfrother

I grabbed this one from Bed Bath and Beyond for $19.99 and I used a $5 off Coupon. You can also find it here on Amazon.

Stay tuned for my latte creations… I hope your babies enjoy their babycinnos!

MILK TIPS: I tried this recipe using unsweetened coconut milk and it would not froth up properly.  I than tried it with coconut creamer and it worked like a charm. So if you are using milk alternative, use the creamer form. I also tried this with Ava’s goat milk and it frothed very well. I would imagine fat free milk may not froth well either. (if you try it, let me know in the comments)
