Honey Milk with Cardamom
I know that March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb but, I’m so over this winter. I’m a summer gal. Give me longer days and warm breezes over snowstorms and shoveling any day. I’ll even take the humid, sweaty (sometimes stinky), New York summers over this never-ending winter. Please, just GIVE ME HEAT! Until then, I’m staying inside and sipping on two of my favorite hot drinks, both spiced with one of my favorite spices, cardamom.
- 2 cups milk
- 1 1/2 tablespoons honey
- 2 whole green cardamom pods, crushed, or 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
Heat the milk in a medium size saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the honey and crushed cardamom pods and heat until bubbles begin to form around the edge of the pan; do not boil. Remove from the heat and pour the milk into two mugs through a fine mesh strainer to remove the cardamom pods. Enjoy!
