Dreamy Night Time Drink

Warm milk with a spoonful of honey, vanilla and cinnamon makes a perfect relaxing drink. So easy when heated in a microwave.

Delicious, easy, and very relaxing. I think this is my new favourite drink for bedtimes in a hurry =) Just a tip: Make sure you watch your milk in the microwave as "or until it foams" usually does occur before the 3 minute mark.

Wonderful nighttime beverage - especially if you are having trouble sleeping! I used skim milk and added a pinch of nutmeg. If I have a little more trouble sleepling I just might add a little shot of bourbon - whatever works!

My dad used to make me something just like this he called "Fairy Nectar". Knowing him, he probably added a little dollop of something stronger... Thanks for the cozy recipe!

Quite good UPDATE: I changed my mind: VERY good! The secret is leaving the milk in the microwave for close to 3 minutes.

This is pretty good, I sprinkled nutmeg on mine along with the cinnamon, and also doubled the honey. Thx

I have this often in the winter when it's soooo cold out. It's perfect just before going to bed. Try it with almond extract instead of the vanilla. Awesome!

This is a wonderful drink, I have used for this for years on end. It's "Fairy Food" to me, and is great to drink, and very calming. Leaving this for the fairies outdoors brings good things, if you believe

This made my insides and my outsides feel much more comfortable. My kids, too. I used NF milk and splenda.

Fond memories of warm milk and honey served to me by my beloved grandmother at bedtime prompted me to give this a go, particularly since I was curious about the addition of cinnamon. I hadn't had this in probably 50 years! It was ok, but the cinnamon and vanilla kind of got in the way for me, perhaps only because my memories bias me. Whole milk, as I enjoyed this in my childhood, makes this particularly rich, creamy and satisfying. In addition, just warming it was more appealing, easier to drink (and safer for children!) than heating it to piping hot. This is a wonderful, comforting drink, especially for children, and especially if your grandma brings it to you in bed.
