This is a nice alternative to hot chocolate. To make this more healthy, substitute the 2% milk and sugar for skim milk and a no calorie sweetener.

Directions

  1. Pour the milk into a microwave-safe mug. Stir together the cinnamon and sugar, then stir into the milk. Mixing the cinnamon into the sugar first will help to keep it from floating on top. Stir in the vanilla. Place mug in the microwave and heat for 1 minute and 40 seconds, or longer for a warmer drink. Stir before drinking.
  2. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

What a great way to start off the fall season! I love hot chocolate so why not try hot vanilla! I used 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon and added 1/4 tsp. of nutmeg as I love the two paired together. All it needed was a little dollup of lite Cool Whip and oh what a treat! Next time instead of the cinnamon and nutmeg I might try pumpkin pie spice to see what that tastes like....

Delicious, next time I will use half the cinnamon, it's a bit too much!

This was very tasty, even using skim milk and a cheap artificial vanilla extract. I found the texture of the undissolvable cinnamon to be weird, so I would consider using cinnamon candies / cinnamon extract next time to get that taste. Otherwise, the flavour of this drink is excellent, and the proportions are perfect. Thanks for the good idea!
