This is a warm and comforting drink! It's so thick and rich, and just inhaling the aroma of the spices made me feel very relaxed. I used soy milk and didn't have any cardamom pods so I used 1/2 tsp ground. I think next time I'd use slightly less. I can't wait to to make this next Winter to take away the chill!
