I love drinking tea lattes, and my preschooler always wants to share a cup. One recent morning, I got the idea to try a kid-friendly warm cinnamon drink, and it’s delicious. I actually love to drink it as well!
Cinnamon Latte Recipe:
(affiliate link included)
-3 cinnamon sticks
-2 1/2 c cold water
-1 tbl honey
-warm milk (1/2 c if frothing, 2 c if just warming)
My son measured out the water and poured it into the pot (on the table), picked the cinnamon sticks out of their container, and put them into the water.
Then cover the pot, heat the water until boiling, and turn off the heat and remove the lid. Let the cinnamon steep until the mixture cooled. Once the water has cooled, remove the cinnamon sticks. (The cinnamon packs quite a punch if you let it steep this long, so adjust the steeping time to your taste.)
After I removed the cinnamon sticks, I added the honey and heated the cinnamon mixture again until just warm enough to drink and dissolve the honey.
I heated 1/2 cup of milk, and used our hand frother. If you don’t have a hand frother, you could try blending about 2 cups – it won’t be as frothy, but it would be a bit bubbly and as tasty.
I filled a mug with about 1/2 cup of the warm cinnamon mixture (about a ladle full for me), and added frothed milk to top off each mug (about 3/4 of a cup). I also put some extra honey in my son’s drink. He pronounced this “so delicious” and finished it, and requested another later.
This recipe makes 4 mugs.
