Homemade Cappuccino Without Coffee Machine


Monsoon is here and if your are craving for some restaurant-style coffee at home, this post is just for you. There is no greater joy other than to sip a creamy mug of hot Cappuccino on a rainy day.  However, when stepping out, is not an option in the current scenario of Covid Pandemic, you can still treat yourself with a flavorful creamy and frothy rich Cappuccino with this simple 3-ingredient, easy to follow recipe. Best part is that you do not need a coffee machine to make this Homemade Cappuccino. 


What is Cappuccino?

Cappuccino is one of the most common beverages consumed all over the world. Basically, Cappuccino is an espresso-based coffee drink of Italian origin. It is traditionally prepared with equal parts of double espresso, steamed milk and steamed milk foam on the top. Variations of the drink involve the use of cream instead of milk, using non-dairy milk substitutes, and flavoring with cinnamon or chocolate powder.


What goes into my version of Homemade Cappuccino ? The Ingredients:

This is one of the most simplest and easiest recipe to make Cappuccino at home. You do not require any fancy ingredient or equipment either. You just require 3 ingredients to make this Homemade Cappuccino, coffee powder, milk and sweetener. You make a cappuccino premix with coffee powder, sugar and water. I have used a hand blender to whip the coffee premix, however, you may use a good blender or a hand whisker (if you have good arm strength) to do so. Once the cappuccino mix is ready at hand, making 

Coffee Powder: Use good quality coffee powder for best results. 

Milk: I have used full cream (full fat) milk, as i have not used any cream in this recipe. 

Sweetener: I have used granulated sugar in this recipe. Next time will try with jaggery powder and share my feedback with you all.

Chocolate syrup: I have used homemade chocolate syrup to garnish the Cappuccino with flower design. You can check out the recipe by clicking here or use store bought chocolate syrup. This ingredient is optional and you can keep your cappuccino plain.

Chocolate Powder: This ingredient is also optional, but you can easily top your Cappuccino with chocolate powder, cinnamon powder, coffee powder or any chocolate flavored health drink like Bournvita / Horlicks or Protein X.


Homemade Cappuccino Premix: If you have Cappuccino premix ready at hand, you can make a creamy frothy Cappuccino within a jiffy. Coffee powder is mixed with sweetener (sugar) and water and then whipped or beaten until it is light and fluffy and almost double its original volume. You just need to add 1 or 2 tablespoons of this cappuccino premix to a coffee mug with some hot milk and you are done. You can store this homemade Cappuccino for around 15-20 days in a refrigerator in an air-tight container and use as per need. You can beat the coffee mixture either in a blender, or using a hand whisk ( you require good arm strength for this as the mixture needs to be beaten for a good 15 minutes to become light and fluffy). I have used an electric hand blender ( cream beater) to whip the coffee mixture. It took around 5 minutes for the mixture to become light and fluffy.

Hot drinks/beverages to cherish the Monsoon Season:

Nothing can beat the warmth and comfort you get after sipping your favorite hot beverage on a rainy day.
