With the chilly season still upon us, it‘s nice to have some good, warm, comforting drinks to fall back on in the evening, when you want to warm your toes up!

So, today, I‘ll show you one of my favorite hot drinks, a warm, mulled, raw milk drink, and it‘s very, very delicious.

INGREDIENTS:

  • Raw milk (enough for 2 good-sized mugs)
  • 3 cinnamon sticks, broken in half
  • 1 tsp. whole cloves
  • 1 whole nutmeg, with surface slightly cracked. (Crack by pressing down on it with the bottom of a heavy pot or pan)
  • 1 tsp. Pure Gold Raw Honey

Note: Honey is optional. For protein types, best reduced or omitted.

PREPARATION:

  1. Pour raw milk into a small pot (I‘m using my cast-iron, enamel pan, available at Mercola.com)
  2. Prepare spice packet as follows:
    • In a double-thickness, 8" X 8" piece of cheesecloth, place the following:
    • 3 cinnamon sticks
    • 1 tsp. whole cloves
    • 1 whole nutmeg, slightly cracked
  3. Gather up sides of cheesecloth to form bundle, and tie bundle up to close.
  4. Place spice packet into milk.
  5. Stir 1 tsp. Pure Gold Raw Honey into milk.
  6. Do not boil the milk; just heat it to just warmer than skin temperature on a very low heat by heating it for about 30-45 minutes. This allows all the spices to infuse into the milk.

Note: Boiling the milk would destroy good bacteria and enzymes.

A lovely aroma will waft through your home, and you‘ll end up with a really yummy, raw-milk drink that you‘ll savor on those cold, wintry evenings.
