Warm Frothy Hazelnut Milk with Cinnamon

Its cold cold cold in London tonight. I read recently that in cold weather, humans like to find a partner and hibernate with them. The rates of new relationships and people seeking relationships goes up in winter, as people seek to find someone to cuddle up with and keep out of the cold. Tonight is certainly one of those night where you just want to crawl under a blanket and snuggle up with a warm drink.

When I was younger my mother always used to make us warmed up milk to drink when it was very cold. It always seemed such a loving and caring act, and it was always very much appreciated.

I now make my own dairy-free version on cold nights like this. I use hazelnut milk, because it has a lovely sweet, nutty and smooth taste that I just can’t get enough of. I also put cinnamon in it as it’s a great antioxidant and had anti-inflammation properties. It also tastes delicious.

Now I just have to wait for my husband to come home to share it.

    I love hot milk with spices!! Especially during the winter time I love to play with spices and all kinds of milk and milk-like products 🙂 Love that post…

    • Thank you so much! They go so well together don’t they? I love them too. Once made one and put ginger in it…. to much, i could barely drink it. This one is lovely though. Essential on cold nights like tonight. Is it cold where you are?

        I love to put vanilla or caramelized stuff also 😀 It is very cold here in Switzerland, we have a lot of snow up in the mountains where I am and I keep lowering the heating to build up a resistance and my immune system 🙂 So I need those hot drinks in the evening 🙂
