Cinnamon Milk

Sometimes you just want something really simple. I woke up this morning just wanting something warm and simple and light. I discovered the delights of cinnamon milk during a recent holiday to Cornwall.  After a bracing cliff walk to a favourite cove, the beach café was offering this milk.  It tasted like heaven and I drank it whilst sitting on the beach watching the tide come in.  So back at home this morning, I wanted to capture the magic of Cornwall – simple pleasures.

Cinnamon Milk

  • A mug (around 250ml) of milk – I do prefer semi skimmed cows milk for this, but almond milk would work as well.
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons of honey

Add the milk, cinnamon and honey to a small saucepan and heat gently until just near boiling.  Pour into your favourite mug and sprinkle with cinnamon. Dream of happy days.

Cashew Banana Iced Coffee

When you want a caffeine hit but don’t fancy a hot coffee – this is a very simple iced coffee drink with a nifty portion of fruit thrown in.  Ever since I discovered cashew milk a few weeks ago at my local supermarket I’ve been stocking up and using it in different brekkie recipes.  I had a bit of milk left and wondered if it would go with coffee – it does beautifully!
