Hot 'n Sweet Vanilla Milk

Hot & Sweet Vanilla Milk

I don't like drinking milk on it's own, whereas Roy prefers a glass of milk with certain foods.  What I do like is Vanilla Milk !  And Cheri likes it even more.

We have it in our tea/coffee or she will have a glass as is.  I tried this quick and easy recipe, which I found HERE, earlier this week, when I was down with the flu.  I tried to get in as much fluids as possible, but also wanted something hot one night when we had an unusual {for this time of the year} cold evening.

So, it was a two in one - I tried the recipe to make for Cheri {already made a batch for her to take home !} and I enjoyed a hot, sweet Vanilla drink topped with mini marshmallows.

Cheri prefers Vanilla Milk cold, which is okay, I  whipped up a liter, let it cool completely and then transferred it to a bottle and kept it in the refrigerator.


yields 1 liter

4 cups Milk

1/3 cup Sugar

Pinch Salt

2 t Vanilla Extract

Mini Marshmallows, to top

  1. ) Place the Milk, Sugar, Salt and Vanilla in a microwavable bowl or in a saucepan.

  2. ) Heat until the Sugar has dissolved - approximately 5 minutes {microwave and stove top}

  3. ) Remove from heat,

Pour into serving glasses and top with Mini Marshmallows !

Told you this one is easy !

ps:  try different toppings or add a sprinkle of Cinnamon or Mixed Spice instead of the Marshmallows.


  1. big milk drinkers here, I think I should get my own cow, this sounds lovely for winter :)

  2. I'm with Mel...sounds like a good alternative for winter and the usual hot chocolate!

  3. I've never had vanilla milk but this looks really good, so I'm going to have to try it. Thank you for sharing!

  4. Hi Linda! I had to come and check your recipe out! It's funny because the only way I have white milk is if it's hot with some sort of flavor, yours is perfect, Imagine that with cereal! wow!...also it's a perfect base for desserts that called for plain milk! Thank you so much for sharing, found you at the Six Sister's party.
    hugs, Lizy

  5. This sounds delightful! I am not a big plain milk drinker, and sometimes chocolate milk seems like too much of a dessert. Vanilla milk sounds amazing!

    I just cannot bring myself to drink milk .... However, I know the rest of my family would LOVE this :) I bet it would be a nice change from chocolate milk!
