Chef's Notes

Important: This recipe only works with skim milk. Also, it's best to heat the milk in a microwave or on the stovetop to a slow simmer (around 160°F [70°C]). When done aerating, the volume will double. If only making a half recipe for a single serving, reduce blending time to 30 seconds.
