Hot Milk with Gingerbread Spices and Molasses

hot milk with gingerbread spices and molasses

Hot Milk With Gingerbread Spices…Like three drinks in one.

  • This warming drink is like a holiday hug, something you can enjoy in the evening when you’re wrapping gifts into the wee hours.
  • Hot spice milk is a great stand-in for eggnog too for those of us who find old fashioned, or store-bought, eggnog far too rich.
  • And finally, I like to drink in in place of hot chocolate after a walk in the cold. It’s just sweet enough and isn’t as filling as chocolate.

Sometimes, we add a little coconut milk for extra sweetness. You could also froth the milk if you like your milk foamy on top.

    Thank you for this delicious drink. I had it with a gingerbread muffin from your website. I don’t drink tea or coffee, so this is a treat!
