My daughter has been laid up with a sprained ankle this whole weekend, so we’ve kind of been trapped in the house. Now Maia is not an easy child to get to drink milk but, she does love vanilla milk. She asked me if I could bring her a glass of her vanilla soy milk but we were out. I didn’t want to leave and go to the store just for vanilla milk and she had a friend over so I thought hey, I can just make some! I have all the makings for a yummy milk drink. She also loves coffee flavored things so I thought I’d make her, her own personal style drink. Next trip to the store I’ll pick up coffee extract and add that to the drink.
Ingredients: milk, vanilla extract, cocoa powder, instant cappuccino mix.
- in a pitcher or cocktail shaker, mix 4tbs. of vanilla extract, 1tbs. cocoa powder, 1 tbs instant cappuccino (or just use sugar).
- pour in milk and give it a vigorous stir.
- pour over ice and serve!
