We have come across a tasty idea that we really like. It's called Vanilla Milk. It can also be a good substitute when you are tired of hot chocolate and it's really good with popcorn. It's easy too.
First you take a mug and fill it with milk. You don't really need to measure it. Then you add in about a teaspoon of sugar or maple syrup (or more if you want). I like to use pure maple (not maple flavoring) because it's supposedly healthier for you. Now put it in the microwave and warm it up. I heat mine for about 45 seconds and then check it. When it gets as hot or warm as you want, add about 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla. I like to use Mexican vanilla because I like how it tastes.
That's it. It's a pretty simple, comforting drink. I like to have it ready for the kids when they come in from a snowy day at school, or playing outside.
