TOTALLY GO FOR THIS! DH, DS and I are all sick and I KNOW we shouldn't, but this milk sounded SO comforting: and, it is!<br/><br/>If you like custard, you will love this at less than half the kcalories.<br/><br/><br/>1 14 2014<br/>This recipe slid down the side of the fridge and I happened to pull the fridge out today! What a treat on a cold day, or when you're not feeling too well! Super yummy STILL!!
This was a breeze to make and the directions are written well. I made only one serving for myself and reduced the amount of honey significantly to one half teaspoon. A drop of hazelnut extract filled in for Torani syrup and what a delicious delight on a rainy afternoon sipping this beverage! I would have taken a picture of your recipe but all I have to show for it is a foamy Got Milk-styled upper lip. Thanks for posting! cg PS Next time I'll try this for inducing sleep as see how well it works.
This is great! I used 1% milk and it was still nice and soothing. I let it cool down a bit because the house is warm, but we still drank it all! Made for 1,2,3 Tag. Thanks! :)
