When you think about lattes, do you imagine skilled baristas, and fancy coffee shops with gurgling steam machines? I did, until I learned a fascinating life-hack for making milk froth in the microwave. Tea lattes are now my favorite cold weather drink.

TOOLS & INGREDIENTS
STEEP THE TEA
No latte is complete without velvety frothed milk. All you need to make frothed milk at home is a mason jar, your microwave, and your muscles!
3 EASY STEPS
Put 1/3 to 1/2 cup milk in a clean mason jar.
Step 1 - Shake the jar with the lid on. Shake vigorously for 30 to 60 seconds.
Step 2 - Microwave for 30 seconds with lid off.
Step 3 - The foam will rise to the top of the jar. Spoon the foam into your mug and pour the remaining milk into your tea.
GARNISH AND SERVE
Sprinkle with brown sugar, cinnamon, cocoa, crushed cookies, crushed candy or anything that appeals to you!
