It's easy to make some pretty impulsive or impractical purchases on Amazon (Prime Day brings out the worst in me), but this year I'm attempting to be more mindful with my spending. One of the first ways I'm working on reforming my monthly bank statement is by cutting back on buying coffee from a shop.

I received an Amazon gift card over the holidays, so I had room to make one more purchase before quitting cold turkey. I discovered the perfect tool to help me enjoy my caffeine habit without destroying my budget (or the planet with reusable cups): an incredible $15 electric milk frother. I don't even consider this Amazon purchase impulsive because of how much it has changed my life for the better.

While it's no shiny silver espresso machine, Zulay Kitchen's Milkboss is one of the greatest budget gadgets for a coffee lover such as myself. Offered in seven different colors (I chose Metallic Ice Blue), this sleek and easy-to-use electric milk frother whips up fluffy, glorious milk in seconds. It's also a great option for those who like to order dairy-free drinks at coffee shops, because you won't risk your milk getting scalded—and no barista is there to charge you extra for it!

To use it, I just heat my milk up in the microwave for about 30 seconds (I like almond or oat) and froth it into my espresso/coffee/tea in the morning. I also add a sprinkle of cinnamon for some pizzazz. The result is a coffee shop-worthy drink—for a fraction of the price.

Additionally, Zulay Kitchen suggests using the MilkBoss for whisking matcha, making bulletproof coffee and even aerating eggs a la Martha Stewart. I also think it would elevate your favorite hot chocolate recipe.
