A tasty drink to warm up your winter evenings! You know hot chocolate, right? Well, think of this as hot vanilla.

Yum! Nice & creamy. I made it with 2TB cornstarch. I think 3 might make it pudding-like, which wouldn't be a bad thing. I'm not sure I'm so hepped up on the coconut flakes in it & might use coconut milk instead next time for the flavor. Made for NA/ME & Veggie forum's Sun & Spice Event 2/13.

This drink was a nice yummy treat on a cold February afternoon. I omitted the coconut as I as a rule don't like lumps in my beverages. However, next time I make it, I'll add some coconut milk. Made for FEBRUARY'S SUN and SPICE EVENT!

Rich, tasty, and soothing drink! This seemed to me like a drinkable pudding, nice and creamy with great vanilla flavor. I made half of the recipe and it was plenty for 2 servings. I loved the cinnamon on top but would probably not bother with the coconut next time. Thanks for sharing your recipe!
