Cinnamon Honey Hazelnut Drink

by Susan on February 24, 2010

The temp here dipped below zero again last night. Seriously, isn’t spring supposed to be coming? Aren’t we supposed to be warming up just a little? I built a big fire in the fireplace and settled down with the pups. What was I missing? A big mug of hot chocolate. I have a great raw food recipe for warm cacao here, but it was getting late and I knew if I drank anything with cacao this late, it could interfere with my sleep.

Hazelnut milk to the rescue! Served with a touch of raw honey and cinnamon, and warmed slightly, it was the perfect before bed nightcap.

More health benefits of cinnamon are becoming known every day. It is a source of magnesium, fiber, calcium and iron. Studies have shown that cinnamon has anti-clotting benefits, can reduce your LDL Cholesterol, help regulate blood sugar and provide relief for arthritis. It is a spice worth looking into.

Warm Hazelnut Cinnamon Milk

  • 2 C Hazelnut Milk (recipe here)
  • 1 T Raw Honey (can add more if you like it sweeter)
  • 1/2 t. Cinnamon

Mix all ingredients together, warm in dehydrator or over double boiler. You can use a kitchen thermometer to make sure you keep the temp under 116 for raw.

Susan-where can I get hazelnuts in quantity? Cub? or do I have to go to a co-op? I really want to try this drink.

Oh, I can just imagine the fragrance of this cozy drink! I need to stock up on hazelnuts so I can make this. Sounds wonderful!

You only need a cup for this recipe…and that isn’t a ton. I get them at my coop.

Delicious drink, it looks amazing and cinnamon is one of my favorite spices. I hear it is good for numerous health conditions, and the Chinese have been using it in their traditional medicine for hundreds of years. It helps with indigestion and stomach conditions, colds, as well as diabetes. I believe it may be able to reduce sugar and cholesterol levels in the blood. I often add cinnamon as a flavoring to raw desserts, cobblers and porridge. I also add ground dates sometimes, i know they’re chunky. but they are also sweet and have a good flavor with nut milks (I personally prefer almond milk or coconut milk) .

We have a tradition in my family to drink eggnog while we are decorating the tree… Think I will be subbing this recipe in for my eggnog this year :) Looks DeLish!!
