What is a babyccino? It’s a delicious cup of foamy milk without the coffee.
When we moved to Germany about three years ago, a friend invited me and Vida to a kids cafe in Mainz called “Lonnaberga"
We arrived and it was a mother’s dream come true.
One side of the cafe had a seating area with tables,chairs and couches and the other side was a little soft play area. The decor was gorgeous and the food and coffee were delicious.
Sadly, this kids-cafe closed down about two years later, I miss it everyday.
It became our go to place on rainy days. They even had covered “stroller parking” :)
While we were waiting for our food, a child next to us was a drinking a little cup of foamy milk, of course I thought it was a cappuccino.
My friend told me that it was called a “babyccino”
and that it was just foamy sweet milk.
They had different flavors to choose from at the Kidscafe and I let Vida try the almond milk babyccino with marshmallows
and she has been hooked ever since.
You don’t have to travel to Europe for a little babyccino of your own,
unless you want too that is.
But I'm going to show you how to recreate this delicious drink at home, just in time for Valentine’s Day.
You will need:
-cows milk or plant based milk, any milk will do.
-a frother or hand mixer
-vanilla extract (or any extract of your choice)
Sprinkles & marshmallows (optional)
Bring 2 cups of milk to a slow boil. When it’s nice and bubbly remove from heat
Transfer your hot milk into a glass bowl or anything heat safe and mix for about 2 minutes until the milk gets thick,creamy and foamy on top
Add your vanilla extract and mix until well combined.
Pour into your teacup and sprinkle cocoa powder, sprinkles or
mini marshmallows on top.
maybe with some French macrons on the side?
You could add cocoa powder in your tea cup
before adding the milk to make a hot chocolate
If you don’t have a hand mixer you can pour the milk into a microwave safe container with a lid, heat for 1 minute and shake vigorously for a few seconds and
you’ll have foamy milk in no time.
We are so excited to serve these for our Valentine’s Day Party we are hosting with our friends this week.
