On the whole it is probably better to just bite the bullet and use whole milk. If you limit your proportions to using only 4 oz or so in one cappa per day, it is not going to kill you and the calories coming from it won't break the bank. If you insist on making 20 oz "milk drinks" I suggest you give up coffee altogether and just have milkshakes or something else, as 20 oz of skim milk are not going to taste very good, and 20 oz of whole milk are not a very good thing to consume, considering the fat and calorie content, not to mention that the coffee is so diminished and diluted by such a drink that it isn't worth the effort in the first place.
I agree with you completely about the desirability of using whole milk in a "milk drink". Just leaving aside the important issue of foam quality, nonfat and low-fat milk both taste like crap (to me, anyway), so how could one expect a decent drink using either one of them? We should remember, however, that taste is a very subjective matter, and if someone (not I) happens to like foamed milk with a hint of espresso taste, then it *is* worth the effort (to them).
