My oldest has never been a huge chocolate fan and recently we’ve taken dairy out of his diet which put me on a search for new “fun” drinks for him on the nights my youngest wants some hot cocoa. Silk recently introduced Cashewmilk and it just might be our favorite dairy alternative!
Since we first tried it, it’s been our go to for a replacement for milk in recipes or just to drink on it’s own. It really is irresistibly creamy and works great in cocoa or a new house favorite – cinnamon milk.
To make cinnamon milk you need Silk Cashewmilk (original or unsweetened), honey, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg/cardamom (optional).
Pour 3 cups of Silk Cashewmilk into a medium saucepan.
Add 1/4 cup of honey (for unsweetened milk, less if you use the original Cashewmilk depending on how sweet you like your drinks), 1/2 Tbsp cinnamon (or less), 1/2 Tbsp vanilla and a dash of nutmeg and/or cardamom if desired.
Slowly stir over medium heat until warm. Pour into a mug and enjoy!
If you have a kiddo who doesn’t like texture and the cinnamon didn’t dissolve well you can strain the milk through a cloth, you’ll still get the cinnamon flavor!
Put the rest in a closed container in the fridge and drink over ice! It’s sort of a horchata type drink and goes great with spicy foods (or by itself).
Cinnamon milk makes a great before bed treat!
