Warm Up And Wind Down With Comforting Hot Milk Drinks
(NAPSA) - We all loved hot cocoa as children and for many it is still a favorite when stealing a few minutes to relax, especially during the cold winter months. Here are two steaming milk drinks that go beyond hot cocoa to offer rich flavors inspired by two classic cakes - Molten Chocolate Cake and Strawberry Shortcake.
Easy to prepare, these drinks delight children and adults equally. And they are a great way to enjoy all the healthy benefits of milk, including calcium. Molten Chocolate Cake Hot Milk Drink conjures up the deep richness of a warm chocolate cake with layer upon layer of chocolate flavor. Strawberry Shortcake Hot Milk Drink brings to mind the fruit flavors of strawberries paired with a just-baked, almond-scented sponge cake. With these two hot milk drinks you truly can have your cake and sip it too.
These hot milk drinks can be made at home in minutes using either a microwave or saucepan. You can use any kind of milk-whole, reduced-fat, low-fat or nonfat. For an adult version, add your favorite liquor or brandy.
California is the nation's leading milk producer and also produces more butter, ice cream, yogurt and nonfat dry milk than any other state. The state is the second-largest producer of cheese, which is available nationally under the Real California Cheese seal.
