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

Ingredients

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

Instructions

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.

A Bedtime Story and Milk Help Children Sleep Better and $40 Walmart Giveaway #POSITIVISMO

Reading to children can provide a lot of benefits including strengthening the bond between parents and their children.   By now you know that giving your children milk before bedtime may help them sleep better and be more alert and aware the following morning.  There is a new collection of bedtime stories that were developed to encourage kids to drink milk while the story is being read to them. The books provide a fun and engaging way to spend quality time with your children, while helping them to get a good night’s sleep.

My favorite book is El Mal Humor de Benito.  All the books are bilingual and will not only help your child learn to read in multiple languages, but also encourages kids to have a glass of milk before they go to bed.  Benito the Elephant has a bad attitude to the point that a lot of the friends around him don’t want to be around him.    This story encourages children going through a similar situation and has a positive ending.

Download bedtime stories from www.otroscuentos.com to read to your children while drinking milk.

Drinking Milk Makes Bedtime & Life Better! #Positivismo

As a child I had several bedtime rituals to go to sleep.  Brush my teet, brush my hair and jump into my favorite cozy pijamas.  When I had a child of my own I incorporated the same routine and included a warm glass of milk.  Sometimes I add a little chocolate abuelita to it as well to make it a perfect routine for bedtime for my family.

Whenever I feel restless I know just the thing to make me sleep well! A warm glass of  milk.  Drinking milk before going to bed helps my family sleep better.  Sending your kids to bed early with a glass of milk may help them to be more awake and alert the following morning.  Drinking warm milks helps your body rest.

Telemundo and Univision is currently airing the California Milk Board’s TV spot, “Ya es hora de ir a la cama”.  Have you seen it?

 

If not, please  make sure to tune in every night between 7-9 pm PT to Telemundo and Univision to watch 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!

 

It’s a great initiative to encourage kids to go to sleep and rest well.  Don’t forget to spread the word!
