Spiced Steamed Milk

This has taken the place of hot chocolate in our family as a warm comfort drink.


1 c nut milk
1/2 c coconut milk
1 T honey or to taste
2 egg yolks (optional)

-5 green cardamom pods, or
-1 stick cinnamon and 5 whole cloves, or
lavender or rose petals, or
-1-2  tsp vanilla extract

To make this, combine the milks in a saucepan. Gently heat the mixture over medium to low heat and add the desired spices (except for vanilla).  If using cardamom pods, press on them to crack them open before adding to the pan.  Turn heat to low (or off), cover, and let sit for 15-30 minutes, or until then milk is spiced to taste.

 Strain the mixture into a bowl.  Stir in the honey to taste and the vanilla if using.  If using egg yolks, mix them in with either a whisk or hand blender (the hand blender will make the milk mixture frothy).

Pour into cups and serve.  This recipe makes two servings.
