So, what type of milk froths best? The short answer is ‘it depends’. To make a cappuccino, you can use non-fat or skimmed milk, 2% milk, whole milk, organic and lactose-free milk, as well as nut milks to achieve a great froth. If you are a beginner, non-fat or 2% milk might be your best option for easy frothing. But as far as taste goes, whole milk tends to be the best type of milk for frothing.
If you want to make a latte, the following milk types are ideal for steaming: non-fat, 2%, whole milk, organic and lactose-free milk. You can also use dairy-free milks, such as soy, almond, rice, and coconut for a delicious latte.
