Easy and compact! That’s why I love my electric milk frother to make healthy drinks. I’ve been using it for awhile now and I’m amazed how convenient it is. So much that I decided to do a review on the top 5 Electric Milk Frothers to Blend Protein Powder. I use mine for mixing all types of healthy protein powders including power matcha, plant collagen, dairy free vegan drinks and coffee lattes. See my demo video below for How to Make Mellow Yellow from YourSuperfoods in a Milk Frother.
Healthy Foodie’s Picks for the Top 5 Electric Milk Frothers to Blend Protein Powder
I will review all the same style frothers that are compact and stand alone on a counter. They all have a detachable container for easy cleaning and most are dishwasher safe. They are not the handheld style but I will review those in a future review article.
Do Milk Frothers Heat Milk?
There are a wide selection of milk frothers that heat milk. I’ve reviewed them for you here and they all heat the milk. The settings are easy to understand and activate. For some of the frothers, you can switch out an attachment for what function you want. For example, the frothing disk creates foamed milk while the heating disk is used for hot milk with no foam. The attachments are stored underneath the unit for quick access. Be sure to read the manual so you know how to properly operate your frother.
How Do I Choose a Milk Frother?
Buying Guide for Electric Milk Frother
Cleaning-Check if the frother has dishwasher safe containers and is easy to clean. Most of the ones I see are dishwasher safe unless they are connected to the electric base.
Power-Be sure the power is adequate to combine powders and milk. You want to be sure the lumps are all out so look for an electric frother with 500-600 watts of power.
Quality-I always check the reviews and look for a reputable name brand. My favorite brands are always high in reviews and customer comments. I noticed some negative reviews on some of the units but sometimes that comes down to user error. Be sure not to leave the container on a hot base because that can cause damage to the frother.
Safety-Is there an auto shut off? I’ve outlined for you which frothers are auto shut off and most of them are. If the frother does not have auto shut off there is a high likelihood the milk could overheat and scorch.
Attachments-Most of the electric frothers have an attachment that stores underneath the unit. The discs or whisks they call them can be switched out depending on if you want to froth or just mix powders.
Budget-Prices range from $60-$130 for this type of countertop electric milk frother.

I’m so pleased I came across this article. I started training again at the beginning of the year and part of that training is a protein shake when I finished my workout. It’s important to have a protein shake as it helps with recovery of the muscles.
At the moment I mix the powder with water and just shake it in my hand. Is is never quite right and I can still taste the actual powder.
I need to get myself a good blender and add milk to the powder to give it a bit more goodness.
I will let you know what blender I choose and give you my review on it after I’ve used it a number of times.
Thank you for sharing and keep up the great work.
All the best,
@Tom great to hear! Let me know which you choose. Thanks for stopping by!
Great website! You have a thorough and extensive use of pictures and links to the products you’re reviewing. I like everything from the logo to the topics as well; I actually learned something. Each milk frother was equally explained and it’s great that you added prices as well so your audience gets as much information as possible.
I had no idea you could use a milk frother to make protein drinks.
Why would someone choose a milk frother over a blender? Can you still mix fruit and such with the protein drink? I guess I have in my mind the typical protein shake that I make when I am am working out.
I see one of the benefits is the ability to heat your drink, so I am thinking that perhaps you make a different sort of protein beverage then I am used to.
Thanks for the post, always great to have different options to be able to consume the amount of protein required when training.
@Robb thanks for stopping by today. I see how it can be confusing so yes it is a different type of drink than a fruit type smoothie. It will not chop up fruit. It can froth milk for coffee, heat milk and mix powders. Check out my video and you can learn more: https://youtu.be/3DbH8LTwncQ
Hi Alyse, I thoroughly enjoyed the frother video. What a great product. I am going to check on the ones that you mention in your article.
Thanks for this great article and video.
@Norene great to hear! Thanks for stopping by today!
