I don’t know about you, but I personally love milk. It is nutritive and has great health benefits. While I regularly drink milk in the form of hot chocolate, coffee or tea, at times I get bored of the routine and want a twist in life (don’t judge me, I admit, I love thrillers) so finding a new recipe is the only option that I am left with to satisfy my cravings for new tastes in life. So here is a compilation of some of my most favorite milk recipes that are a lot different that the regular ones.

  1. Vanilla And Cinnamon


1 1/2 cups skim milk

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 teaspoon granulated sugar

Whipped cream

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon


Warm the milk in a small saucepan over medium heat and pour in the sugar and vanilla extract.

Allow the milk to warm and the sugar to completely dissolve, but do not allow it to simmer or boil. It is hot when steam rises from the center of the pan.

Pour the warmed milk into a blender and whiz on high for about a minute or until the milk is good and frothy.

Pour the milk into a cup and top with whipped cream (if desired), and sprinkle some cinnamon powder.


  1. Apple Spice Latte


1/2 a cup apple juice

1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk

a pinch of each cinnamon and nutmeg


Heat the apple juice and almond milk on the stove top on medium heat until warm (don’t boil.)

Sprinkle the nutmeg and cinnamon over the top. Enjoy immediately.


  1. White Chocolate Pumpkin Pie


2 cups milk or almond milk

1/4 cup pure pumpkin puree

1 teaspoon each of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice & cloves

1 teaspoon vanilla

30 grams white chocolate + more for topping

whipped cream


Add milk, pumpkin puree, spice and vanilla to a blender and combine until smooth.

Pour into a saucepan, add white chocolate, and heat on medium-low until hot, stirring often.

Pour into mugs and top with whipped cream, white chocolate shavings and a bit more pumpkin pie spice.

  1. Ginger Bread


2 cups milk

2 tablespoons molasses

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

frothed milk or fresh whipped cream


In a medium saucepan warm milk, molasses, sugar, and pumpkin pie spice until just boiling, stirring continuously.

Remove from heat immediately and stir in vanilla.

Serve with additional frothed milk or fresh whipped cream.

  1. Vanilla Almond


8 cups low-fat milk

1/2 cup sugar

2 cinnamon sticks

2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon almond extract

ground cinnamon

cinnamon sticks


Combine the milk and sugar in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat.  Cook until sugar dissolves, stirring frequently.

Add cinnamon sticks to the milk mixture and cook for 5 more minutes, stirring occasionally (do not boil).

Remove from heat and let stand 20 minutes.

Stir in extracts.

Place pan over medium-high heat and cook for 3 minutes, or until thoroughly heated.

Remove and discard cinnamon sticks.  Garnish with whipped cream, ground cinnamon, or cinnamon sticks, if desired.

  1. Chocolate Ginger Bread


2 cups milk

2 tablespoons Gingerbread Syrup

2 tablespoons Dark Chocolate Sauce

Whipped Cream


Place milk and gingerbread syrup into a blender.

Turn speed to slow and start your blender.

Slowly turn the speed it up.

Allow to blend for 5 minutes until steam is coming out of the top.

Slowly turn speed down and turn the blender off.

Pour frothy milk into a cup, top with whipped cream and chocolate sauce!  And enjoy!


Now that you know so many recipes, you can write a thriller for yourself, with lots of twists and turns to make great and different flavored milk recipes. A after all, change is good.
