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.
2 large mugs of hazelnut milk
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1. add the hazelnut milk to a saucepan and sit on a medium heat to gently heat-up
2. once the milk starts to heat, add the cinnamon and whisk the milk with a hand-held whisk until fully warmed through and nice and frothy
3. pour into heated mugs and drink immediately.
