My husband and I tried this out one night when we wanted something slightly sweet before bed . . . just not hot chocolate. It was exactly what we were looking for! A little sweet with a bit of cinnamon. Comforting. Relaxing. Yummy. FYI: It's better at night than it is in the morning. I don't know why.
Prep./Total Time: 10 min.
Yield: 1 serving
1 cup fat-free milk
1 cinnamon stick (3 inches)
Dash ground nutmeg
Dash ground allspice
1 1/2 tsp. honey
In a small saucepan, combine milk, cinnamon stick, nutmeg, and allspice. Cook and stir over medium heat until heated through; whisk in honey. Serve warm; garnish with cinnamon stick.
- The first time we made this, we didn't have cinnamon sticks, so I think we used 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon per serving.
