Hot Spiced Milk

No reviews

Comfortingly warm and flavorful, hot spiced milk is a classic beverage for any evening. With its creamy texture, simple ingredients, and no added sugar it’s a better alternative to hot cocoa in many ways. Pair it with fresh chocolate chip cookies or enjoy it as a standalone nightcap and experience its soothing effects for yourself.

Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 2 drops vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Warm milk in medium-sized saucepan over medium heat until foamy, about 9 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Pour milk into mugs and add 1 drop of vanilla extract to each mug.
  3. Sprinkle cinnamon on top and serve immediately.

Notes

  • To boil or not to boil? – Milk has a habit of boiling over when you’re not looking. Keep an eye out for bubbles and feel free to serve even before it’s foamy.
  • Milk Skin – As milk is heated its proteins and fat molecules undergo a chemical reaction that causes a solid skin to form on top; this skin is perfectly safe to eat albeit a little chewy. If you prefer, remove the skin with a spoon before serving.
