These past few days have been chilly here in Florida and we are loving it! We’ve put on our warm clothes and snuggled up close. It’s been a great change from the usual 75 degree weather at this time of year, especially with Christmas coming! Now, I usually do not enjoy warm beverages, with two exceptions: the occasional hot cocoa (yum!) and vanilla steamers. Ahh…vanilla steamers! This yummy treat was first introduced to me by a friend who worked at Starbucks. And until two days ago, I didn’t have the recipe. But as I was making some hot cocoa on the stove, I figured out, and completely by accident I might add, the recipe for the oh-so-delicious vanilla steamer.
- Combine milk and brown sugar in a saucepan and whisk constantly on a medium heat until hot. Be sure to constantly stir to keep the milk from scorching. Whisking will allow the milk to become frothy, which makes it ever-so-delicious.
- Remove from heat and add the vanilla.
- Curl up somewhere nice and cozy and sip. You’ll soon feel warm and fuzzy. 🙂
