Buy a battery operated Milk Frother (Ikea has them for about $3) to make your own inexpensive, healthy lattes.

This works if you live in a dry climate and get some plain cloth bags. I made my cloth bags out of sturdy kitchen towels. Before going to the market, soak the bags in clean water. When foods go into the bag, they will keep cool and fresh until you get home. It's the miracle of evaporative cooling! Be sure to rinse and dry the bags after use.
