Hot Spiced Milk: A Kids Chai Tea
I love a sweet cup of Chai Tea.  It's warming, comforting, and delicious!  I created this non-tea version for my kids and it has been a lovely treat during this rainy winter season!
 

A traditional Chai is typically a combination of black tea with five or more Indian spices added.  (My favourite Chai spice blend is equal parts of cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, and black pepper.)

Ingredients:

Serves 1
Total Prep and Cooking Time: less than 5 minutes
 

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of ground cloves
  • Pinch of ground nutmeg
  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 1 cup milk

Preparation:

Combine the spices with the sugar in a small sauce pan.  Whisk in about 1/4 cup of the milk and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and add the remaining milk.  Let it simmer for about 1 minute.  

Some additional notes:

If you want, you can pour the Hot Spiced Milk through a tiny strainer for a smoother drink.
