Submission: Spiced Warm Milk

From The Hunger Games: Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins 

Today's recipe is a submission from Elizabeth Tressa Grace, who, in addition to having a super awesome name, also has a super awesome blog called Bread, Brownies and Beyond.  I just spent ten minutes surfing through it and I'm pretty sure there's drool on my keyboard. Those of you who've read the book will remember that this soothing beverage was made for Katniss by a sympathetic Capitol worker when she awoke from a nightmare shortly before the 75th Annual Hunger Games. Initially she just ordered a warm milk to help her sleep, but the attendant, feeling bad for her, added a little honey and spice as an act of kindness and solidarity.  Make this when you or someone you care about is feeling especially sad or nervous. Or, you know, when death is imminent. 


1/2 cup coconut milk (regular milk will work, as well)

1 teaspoon honey

Splash of vanilla

Sprinkle of cinnamon

Sprinkle on nutmeg

Microwave milk on high for 1 minute. Continue to microwave it in 15 second increments until desired temperature is reached. Mix in honey and vanilla, and sprinkle with cinnamon and nutmeg. Enjoy!

  3. Drinking it right now and it' s delicious! One of my favourite recipes, thanks.

  4. I'm using almond milk because that's all I have. But it's a fine substitution! Intend to try it with coconut milk! (Once I run out of almond...)

  5. This is just lovely. I just made some and it is so good. I'll make for my brother and sis.

  6. This sounds delicious can't wait to try it out!

  7. I just made this with vitamin D milk and it is so delicious

  8. i made it with cool whip and a cinnamon stick and it was perfect

  9. This is one of my favorite morning drink. If we bubble milk with warming flavors it will turn out to be much lighter and much less demanding to process. The milk likewise goes about as a bearer to make the flavors you are including more powerful. I am conducting a outdoor advertising service, i hope this site will help you lot.

  12. Wonderful blog! I found it while searching on Yahoo News. Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Many thanks.
