So. I remember way back when like 10 years ago when I first had this stuff. It was at my friends house, and I was having one of my first-ever sleepovers. A BIG deal for a 5 year old. Like, huge, right? Right. So. To help us jittery 5 year olds fall asleep, my friend’s mom made us a treat; it was called sleepy milk. Warm milk with some cinnamon and vanilla extract. I had it sometimes over the next 10 years, but not a bunch.
This past summer, I was having difficulty sleeping. No idea why. So this is when the old childhood memory came back to me! But I modified it a little. Instead of using whole milk, I used unsweetened Almond milk. To help flavor the almond milk, I used a spoonful of Swissmiss’ low calorie blend. Then add cinnamon, vanilla, and fat free whipped cream.
- 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1 spoonful Swissmiss’ low calorie blend (75 cal per 1/4 cup)
- 1/8 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp vanilla
- fat free whipped cream
Mix it all together, heat, and enjoy. And then, after about 5 minutes, fall asleep 🙂
