Creamy dessert beverage

It's been a lovely fall day over here in the Willamette Valley-- a day for tall boots, coffee with friends and crafting. A day of sunshine, colorful trees and crunchy leaves on the sidewalks. A day of homemade sugary donuts, pumpkins on the porch, and cuddle time with the hubs. And, to top it all off-- a lovely new drink recipe!

I originally found this idea over on exPress-o and decided to try it out myself. It offers a nice variation from the typical hot cocoa and/or coffee options. I like to call it "Creamy Milk" (original, I know).

Fill a mug with milk (I use non-fat) and heat in microwave until hot. Add a few splashes of your favorite coffee creamer (I prefer sugar-free Lucerne vanilla creamer) and top with whip cream/cinnamon/whatever you feel like.

It ends up tasting kind of like white chocolate hot cocoa. At first I was a little skeptical (I'm not a big fan of hot milk), but it's actually delicious! And using non-fat milk and sugar-free creamer makes it not too unhealthy, don't you think? :-)

Enjoy your Sunday!

Meaningful Monday-- The art of Autumn

From via We Heart It

Winter is an etching, 
spring a watercolor, 
summer an oil painting 
and autumn a mosaic of them all.
