I have always been a milk drinker. When I was little I would drink it with every meal and these days I still love to have it with breakfast or lunch. I find it so comforting and soothing and have especially enjoyed drinking it while I am pregnant. One of the things I order at Starbucks from time to time is a simple vanilla steamer with cinnamon. Most of the time I omit the whipped cream, but sometimes I indulge. I also make it at home on occasion when I have the blender at the ready. I would really love a milk frother for Christmas, but until then the blender it is. Here is how I make my favorite vanilla steamer at home!
Vanilla Steamer with Cinnamon
1 1/2 cups 1% or skim milk (2% is fine too)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Whipped cream, optional
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1. Warm the milk in a small saucepan over medium heat and pour in the vanilla extract. Allow the milk to warm through but do not allow it to simmer or boil. It is hot when steam rises from the center of the pan.
2. Pour the warmed milk into a blender and whiz on high for about a minute or until the milk is good and frothy.
3. Pour the milk into a heatproof cup and top with whipped cream (if desired), and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
