So we did it! Coconut milk might not be for everyone but if you're trying to cut out dairy it's a great alternative and we can even froth it like standard milk.
- We used all the standard equipment:
- Temperature sensor
- Steel jug
- ECM / Rocket coffee machine (half moon dial)
Frothing the coconut milk
Coconut milk has a different consistency to cow's milk - our Alpro milk was 'gloopy' so we decided to put a little more air into the coconut milk at the start of the process.
We then used traditional frothing techniques and created a vortex in the milk and brought it up to temperature (same as dairy).
Coconut milk latte art
To be honest I'm not the best at latte art and have decided that I need a lot more practice.
