Hot Spiced Milk

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by mielhollinger

This soothing beverage is fragrant, warming, and delightful. Make it with half rice milk and half soy milk for a rich but not-too-sweet taste. (This recipe is from the book "The Vegan Sourcebook".)

Yumm!! I used all rice milk. I don't do soy and suggest you don't either! I skipped the pepper out of preference and used local honey rather than sugar, but I can see sugar would be good. It comforted me in some way and took the chills away. I would make this another time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine the milk, cardamom, cinnamon, pepper, and saffron in a small saucepan and whisk them together.
  2. Place over medium heat, stirring occasionally until hot.
  3. Pour the milk through a fine strainer to filter out the spices (you can put the strainer over your cup or mug and pour the hot milk directly into it).
  4. Stir in as much sugar as necessary to achieve the desired sweetness.
  5. Serve hot.
