Milk-and-Honey Steamer

(recipe, Carrie Floyd)

My daughter has taken to making steamers for breakfast, which she drinks alongside a plate of toast with marmalade. I especially like this drink as a mid-morning snack on a cold day. You can make this with any kind of milk you have — often we make it out of skim with a slug of cream stirred in — but it's a tastier brew when you upgrade out of non-fat.


  1. 1 cup whole milk
  2. 1 tsp. pure vanilla or almond extract
  3. 1 tsp. honey
  4. Nutmeg, freshly grated


  1. In a small pan over medium heat warm the milk. Add flavoring — vanilla or almond — and honey; stir to dissolve. Heat until hot, but do not boil.
  2. Whisk until frothy, then turn off heat and let sit for a minute. Pour hot milk into a mug and top with freshly grated nutmeg.
