"yummmm yummm yummy... its 11 pm on the east coast and i am trying do do anything to get some sleep and stumbled on this recipe.... and who would have thought that this drink would be as yummy as it is.. this is really tasty and sooo warm in the tummy.. i think i will need to make this for my son whenever he is antsy and cant sleep... so glad i tried this,, if i could give you 10 stars i would.. all should try this.. well off to finish my cup and go straight to bed for me
thanks Um for posting this... took a picture of this .. but will have to wait till tommorrow after i catch some well deserved Zzzzz's"
"I often have this when I want a little comfort before bed - but we never had it with butter. Will try the next time and damn the few extra calories!"
"Works like a charm! Thanks for posting this. My German mother and German-Polish Oma used to make this for me when I was a small child."
"I loved this! Mmmmm. Slept like a baby!"
"Delicious and very soothing for my sore throat."
"Easy, yummy and effective! I am part Polish and we always added butter to our warm milk in cereals. I never knew why, I just knew it was delicious. I had to use 1% milk for this so I made sure to use the butter and it was great. I was off to sleep as soon as I was finished. Thank you!"
"This is very homey and relaxing; maybe even better than a cup of tea. And it's Polish which makes it even better! *wink*"
"I've heard of a glass of warm milk being good for insomnia. This is WAY better. I loved the flavor and since I've been feeling a little under the weather, I added the butter. I just might be making this for myself before bed every night. Thanks for posting. :)"
"This is an old insomnia "cure" in my family. It's very good and very relaxing for some reason. I never knew it was a Polish thing though! Sometimes I add a tiny bit of fresh mint to mine. Works just fine with lower % milk too :) Thanks Um Safia! I never would have known."
"beautiful! Just like mom used to make. I had some before going to bed and it was yummy in my tummy :)"
"We tried this without the butter and it was very good. We tried it again with the butter and it was very, very good!"
"How easy was this? very easy indeed. The flavour is sweet but not too sweet and it's very drinkable. For someone who isn't a great fan of milk... this is a better way to drink it than just plain and cold. I added a little nutneg to the top and yum! Please see my Rating System: 4 lovely stars for a quick and tasty milk recipe. (Made for Zaar World Tour 2008) Thanks!"
"I was laying awake in bed a few moments ago thinking what could I do to fall asleep? Suddenly I realized I had this recipe saved for ZWT4 (Eastern Europe)! Used the butter option and am sipping it as we speak. It is warm and soothing with a nice aftertaste of honey..MMM.. Thanks :) Hopefully I'll be asleep soon!"
"Never did actually know if it worked, but warm milk & honey was often a thing my mom made when I was a kid! A comfort food (whether from memories or from taste, I don't know that either)! Still a great tasting, soothing drink, & a nice walk down . . . [Made & reviewed while in Eastern Europe on the Zaar World Tour 4]"
"Very comforting and delicious. I was not feeling so well this evening, and this drink hit the spot. Night night......zzzzzzz Made for ZWT4."
"Very nice, soothing pre-bed drink. I skipped the butter option for now, but I'll try it the next time I'm a bit under the weather. Mmm. Thanks Um Safia! Made for ZWT 4."
"I had a low-grade fever coming on last night and remembered seeing this recipe earlier in the day and made it and took to bed with me. It is delicious. I don't know if it did anything (I am better today), but it sure made me feel good yesterday. Slept like a log. :-)"
"I'm off for bedtime so made this and made as is. It's warm and sweet and mmmmmmm... g'nite PAC mom! Made for WZT4."
