Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful.

Enjoy a steaming hot cup of cinnamon cappuccino this cold Christmas day. As someone who watches every calorie, cappuccinos were diet delisted many years ago. So after a long period of denying myself the pleasure of this intoxicating beverage, I am incredibly excited to put it back on my list of allowable indulgences.

Cinnamon Cappuccino

  • 3/4 cup skim milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup hot, very strong coffee
  • 1/4 teaspoon sifted unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cinnamon stick 

1) In a medium nonstick saucepan, bring the milk, vanilla, and cinnamon just to a boil.
2) Remove from the heat and whisk until frothy, about one minute.
3) In a large mug, combine the coffee and the milk mixture. Sprinkle with the cocoa and garnish with the cinnamon stick. Serve.
This is a nice cappuccino to drink in the morning accompanied by Nutella and toast. Its flavor gets richer with every steaming hot sip.

Merry Christmas everyone, and thank you for visiting Becky Cooks Lightly!
