Steamed Vanilla Milk and Weekend Links

Shares 0

Spilled milk.

Sometimes when I go to a coffee shop (not often) in the evening, instead of getting coffee I like to get steamed vanilla milk.  They use the steamer on the espresso machine to froth warm milk and add a shot of vanilla syrup.

It’s easy to replicate at home.  Vanilla syrup can be bought in the coffee section of the grocery store.  Add a bit to a cup of milk and microwave it to warm.  Then give it a good stir.  I use a little battery powered whisk I bought at Ikea for under $2.  You can see I got a little carried away with the whisking and made a mess.

Grab your favorite beverage and check out what I’ve found across the blogosphere this week.

I want to wish my Mother-in-law and Father-in-law happy anniversary!  50 years ago today they said “I do”.  They have loved each other and served God together ever since.  They are a wonderful example and blessing.

  1. 50 years–how wonderful! Wishing them a super-special day.
    I love steamers. I have to do soy milk (lactose intolerance–boo) and I usually choose either vanilla or hazelnut syrup. YUUUM!

  2. wow– what a testimony and example in marriage. Beautiful.

    We make this beverage too — we call it snow tea 🙂 We use steamed milk, a little sugar and vanilla rather than syrup and it’s my favorite fall/winter beverage.

  3. So smart! my kids would love it… a chance to have a grown up drink (like coffee) but without the caffeine! Love your ideas!

  4. Congrats to your in-laws. How rare. I’m working on 42 yrs with my very special spouse. My secret ingredient to a happy marriage– don’t sweat the little stuff. He’s not supposed to be you, you’re not supposed to be him. Let each other be different.
    As to the vanilla milk, I like mine with a bit of caramel. *sigh* Heaven.

  5. I love drinking this at Starbucks. I had completely forgotten about it…I am going to have to make it soon!
