Anise Milk

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by JasperJ

I like to make this after I get home late, just before going to bed. It's a variation on a very traditional drink which usually has just anise, sugar and milk as its ingredients.

This wasn't to our liking at all. We tried it at a church function and not one cared for it. Won't make this again.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 teaspoon anise seed, crushed
  • 1 cardamom pod, shelled and crushed
  • 4 teaspoons honey (four large teaspoons)
  • 1 cup milk (just fill the cup you're going to use to slightly less than the desired level)


  1. Put the milk over medium heat, preferably in a pan with a thick bottom (and high enough, the milk will rise when starting to boil).
  2. Mix in the crushed anise, crushed cardamom and honey using a whisk. Beat the milk using the whisk to give it a layer of foam. Then let it stand (occasionally stirring it with the whisk) until it boils.
  3. Pour the milk into the cup through a strainer and let it cool a bit (it should still be hot, but not so hot that you'll burn your tongue, otherwise you won't taste much).
