Wild Thing's Steamed Drinks @ Home!

Going to a cafe and treating yourself to a nice hot drink is a simple pleasure. This comes as no surprise that so many people are missing this ritual. I, personally, can not wait until I can go to one of my favourite coffee shops again and get cosy with a drink.


But for now, we are all at home. So, I thought I would share some recipes of our favourite steamed drinks, using items that you probably already have in your kitchen, so that you can enjoy them at home!


Ideally you will need:

-A small saucepan

-Nutribullet or other similar blender

-Fine mesh Sieve.


The process that we will use for each drink will be roughly the same:

1-Infuse oat milk with spices on the hob.

2-Strain.

3-Blend.


Step 2 or 3 may be the other way around depending on the recipe.


So let's start with our signature & customer favourite...
