Hot Milk

When you saw the title of this post, I know you probably were thinking: "Huh? Hot milk?  Why would she have a recipe on that?"  But I didn't just heat up a glass of milk in the microwave.  I added sugar, vanilla, and nutmeg...and it tasted just like a [melted milkshake].  The combination of the flavors is so calm and relaxing. If you ever have trouble falling asleep at night, this hot milk recipe may just do the trick.  It kind of seems like a lot of sugar (2 tablespoons of sugar in just 1 cup of milk?) but it ends up tasting incredible with the combination of flavors.   Feel free to experiment and use brown sugar or honey in place of the sugar, or other extracts.

Yield: 1 serving


  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg


  1. In a large mug, stir together the milk, vanilla and sugar. Heat in the microwave for 1 minute and 15 seconds. Stir in nutmeg, and serve hot.
