Winter Comfort…Warm Vanilla SootherBy
Lately, this drink has been my favorite breakfast. It’s warm, filling and nourishing. As I drink this, I always feel like someone just handed me a delicious mug of comfort. Mmmmm
Warm Vanilla Soother
3 cups whole milk
4 egg yolks
1/3 cup real maple syrup
2 T. arrowroot powder or corn starch
1 Tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
In a medium saucepan, whisk together milk, egg yolks, maple syrup and arrowroot powder. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly (I use a whisk) until mixture begins to thicken. Remove from heat and add butter and vanilla. Stir until creamy. Pour into mugs and serve warm.
Sprinkle a little nutmeg on top or add a dollop of whipped cream for an extra special touch!
Ever since I bought a gallon of vodka started my big batch of homemade vanilla, I’ve been experimenting with new ways to use vanilla extract. Yum, homemade vanilla is so good!
I’ve been working hard to put all of these vanilla recipes into a new ebook. Plus…I’m creating a Vanilla Recipe Card Pack that will be downloadable and available for you to print off and give as gifts along with a bottle of vanilla.
I’m trying to get these out before Christmas! We’ll see how it goes. In the meantime, I’ll be giving you a few sneak peeks at Vanilla Recipes like this one!
Which vanilla recipe do you want to see next? Homemade Vanilla Wafers…or Fresh Fruit with Vanilla Sauce?
