Warm Spiced Milk

Warm Spiced MilkMy husband almost always makes a small pot of coffee at night, and my son always wants some of Daddy’s coffee. We always say no, and give him warm milk or hot cocoa. However, my husband recently got some holiday coffee flavored with spices, and Julien has really been persistent about the coffee because it smells so good. So I thought it would be fun to make a warm milk for Julien with the same winter spices that are infused in Daddy’s coffee. I created this warm spiced milk to taste like a gingerbread cookie. It has cinnamon, ginger, cloves, nutmeg and vanilla. I added a little sugar to balance the spices. We made ours with almond milk, because mommy and daddy are lactose sensitive, and we knew we couldn’t pass up a warm cup of this delicious treat. This recipe would work well with regular milk, almond, soy or rice milk.
