Hot Almond

Since temps are hovering around the single digits and the wind chill can freeze your eyeballs in their sockets, I find that I'm looking for a little warmth to balance things out.  While I love hot chocolate, I was looking for something with a little more ooomph.

Enter the Hot Almond.  It's warm and fragrant and it has a sweet, delicious taste.  Plus it's super easy to make.

Hot Almond

Ingredients

1 cup of milk (any percent will work)
2 tsp sugar
1 tsp almond extract
whipped cream (optional)
cinnamon (optional)

1.  Stir sugar and milk together in a microwave safe cup

2.  Microwave on high for 2 minutes

3.  Stir in almond extract

4.  Garnish with whipped cream and cinnamon

It's that easy and that delicious.  If you use skim milk it's only 3 weight watchers points plus.
