This French vanilla cappuccino isn’t made with ice cream, but it’s a sweet, creamy treat that may just replace your favorite dessert. Using a whole vanilla bean adds a gourmet flavor, and a sprinkle of brown sugar and cinnamon takes it over the top!
Brew your coffee. You’ll get the best flavor if you pull two shots of espresso, but strong brewed coffee is also delicious.
Heat your milk. Pour the milk into a saucepan and set the heat to medium. Add the vanilla bean. Stir regularly to keep the milk from burning. When the milk starts to bubble, take it off the heat and remove the vanilla bean.
Froth your milk. Using a whisk or steam wand, froth the milk until it doubles in size.
Pour the espresso or coffee into your mug. Then add the sugar and stir to let it dissolve.
Add the milk and spoon the milk foam on top. Sprinkle on a little cinnamon and enjoy your French vanilla cappuccino!
We get it: whole vanilla beans can be pretty pricey. Since most of the world’s vanilla grows on a single island (Madagascar), the prices can swing wildly For a more affordable drink, you can substitute vanilla extract or even imitation vanilla extract.
