Makes 1 serving (8 ounces)
2 measured scoops finely ground
espresso or 2 espresso pods
1 teaspoon granulated sugar, optional
2 tablespoons whole milk
3 ice cubes
Press the power button of the Cuisinart®
Espresso Maker to turn the machine on. The
lights around the power, manual, single and
double espresso buttons will illuminate
and when they stop blinking, the machine has
been warmed and is ready to use.
Place the two-cup filter basket in the
portafilter holder. Spoon the espresso grounds
into the basket. Using the tamping tool, press
down the grounds with moderate pressure
and clean any excess from the rim. Secure
the portafilter holder in place.
Place a glass underneath the brew head and
press the double espresso button. Espresso will begin to
brew. When 3 ounces have been brewed the
machine will stop.
Stir the sugar into the hot espresso to
dissolve. Pour the espresso mixture and
the milk into the jar of a Cuisinart® Blender.
Place the lid on and process on high. While
the motor is running, drop the ice cubes in
and continue to process until the mixture is
homogenous, about 30 seconds.
Pour into a glass.
