How to make a cafe latte with your existing Keurig without buying the new Vue!

We love our Keurig and I know many people love theirs, too.  I, however, do not love my Keurig enough to spend $250 on the new Keurig Vue coffee maker.  Yeah, I watched the infomercial last night and when I saw that the new Keurig can make lattes, it got me thinking.  I'm going to show you how to make a latte in your existing Keurig and save $250!  This one will be better because you use real milk, not nonfat dry milk and powdered cream that are in the Vue's latte frother pack.  The Vue takes two steps to make a latte and costs $1.50 each.  My way takes three steps, costs just pennies (since I refill my K Cups), but is very easy to make, you'll see.

Step 1: Pour about an inch of milk in the bottom of your coffee cup and microwave for 40 seconds.

Step 2: Froth the milk.  I bought my frother on eBay for less than $2.00.  Mr. Coffee also makes a frother that you can buy at WalMart for about $8.00.

Check out this froth!  Amazing!

Step 3: Brew your coffee

There you have it!  A REAL latte made using your Keurig!  Sweeten, stir, and enjoy!

I have an old fashioned percolator that I use on top of the stove. Would my coffee work just as well for this latte?
