Vanilla Mint Latte Recipe

Our bedtime ritual has become a routine.  Whenever I get ready for bed I do a little reading, take a shower, drink a cup of warm milk, brush my teeth and go to sleep.  The warm glass of milk is perfect and helps prepare me for sleep.  Sometimes I add a little bit of cinnamon on top or create one of my favorite warm milk drinks, Vanilla Mint Latte.  Needless to say, its a ritual I look forward to every night.


Vanilla Mint Latte Recipe


2 cups milk, hot steamed to fill cup (or foamed)
5 fresh mint sprigs
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp raw sugar


Heat milk on stovetop on medium heat for 3 minutes. Add mint leaves. Add vanilla. Heat for additional 3 minutes, stirring the leaves once or twice. Let simmer for 3 minutes and remove leaves. Pour heated milk over raw sugar and stir. Serve warm. Pour drink mixture into cup and serve!

Every night Telemundo and Univision feature the California Milk Board’s TV spot, “Ya es hora de ir a la cama” which reminds parents and children that it’s time to go to bed!  Remember to tune in every night between 7-9 pm PT to Telemundo and Univision to watch.  It’s a nice initiative since some kids are not sleeping enough. It’s important that they get enough hours of sleep to be more alert the following day.
