Hot Vanilla for Winter #WarmUpDrinks


Happy New Year and welcome to the third installment of the Winter Warm-Up Drink Series hosted by Ellen of Family Around the Table! For the next four Fridays, now, we'll be featuring winter drinks guaranteed to warm you right up!


Stay Warm With These Sips

Hot Vanilla

I am almost loathe to call this a recipe. But, when I talked to my boys about hot winter drinks, 'Hot Vanilla!' resounded around the dining table. "We love Hot Vanillas, Mom!" they hollered. I know. I know. When they were younger, we went to a breakfast spot and I always let them order - and share - one hot vanilla. Now we don't eat out as much, so we make these at home. You could also call them a steamer, but old habits die hard and these are 'Hot Vanilla's in our house!


Ingredients serves 2
  • 2 C milk
  • 2 t vanilla syrup
  • Also needed: milk foamer (I use an Aerolatte)



Procedure
Pour the milk into a medium saucepan and heat over medium-low heat until it begins to steam around the edges. You don't want it to boil!

Add 1 t vanilla syrup to each mug and set aside. Pour the warmed milk into a wide mouth container. Foam the milk.

Portion milk into the mugs, then scoop the milk foam into the top of each mug. Serve immediately.
