Cozy Vanilla Drink

I love a cozy warm drink that makes you feel like a soft warm blanket is wrapped all around and snuggles you in.  This is a family-friendly drink I created that you would vow came from a gourmet shop.  This fabulous vanilla beverage is not sticky sweet like so many, but, instead decedent and a fabulous self-indulgent treat you don’t want to miss.


Cozy Vanilla Drink


2 Tbl. French Vanilla Creamer 

2 tsp. Pero

2- 3 Tbl. white chocolate chips

1 cup milk, microwaved for 2 minutes or heated through (2% – whole depending on the richness desired)


Place the creamer, Pero and white chocolate chips in a large container, large enough to hold the ingredients and contain the splash when stirred.DSC_0735Pour the hot milk into the mixture and mix with a wand mixer, electric mixer or use a blender.DSC_0737Mix until the ingredients are completely combined, the chocolate chips are dissolved and it is combined completely.DSC_0738 Serve!Cozy Vanilla Drink 1 Carrie Groneman’s original recipe.

  1. Omg, this looks so good and also so easy to make. Going to have to try to make now. Thanks Carrie 😉

    • I really, really like this drink Janine and so far every single person who has tried it, even those who didn’t think they would like it, has fallen in love with this drink. Even when given the choice of this and homemade hot chocolate, this was the winner!

  2. Sounds so delicious! Phillip makes a warm pumpkin-flavored milk drink and I LOVE it. I’d like to explore what else we can do!

    • Oohhh that one sounds great too Jenny. I think you would really enjoy this drink and keep an eye out in January I will bring you several hot drinks that EVERYONE can drink – you know what I mean:) I get tired of just the hot chocolate packets and want something new, sophisticated in taste and over-the-top gourmet shop; I don’t think I will disappoint. Let me know if you give this COZY VANILLA DRINK a try.

    Oh, how I love a good warm coffee drink or hot chocolate to warm me up or pick me up in the afternoons. This warm drink sounds right up my alley. However, I have never heard of Pero. I am headed to the store this afternoon and will be definitely looking for it.

    Many blessings,

    • Diane, everyone I have made this for LOVES it! You can find it in the coffee section (though it’s made from malted barley, chicory and rye) in stores like Walmart. Also available on Amazon. Let me know if you give it a try.

  4. Thank you for linking up at the LET’S GET REAL WEEKLY LINK PARTY #121. Pinning and tweeting.

    MMMM I bet this is nice and smooth going down. How yummy to have on a cold winters day. I don’t drink coffee so I am always looking for a warm alternative.
    What is Pero? can I substitute anything else for it? I live in Alaska. Shopping is limited.


  6. Jessica says:

    This looks so cozy and inviting! Perfect for a snow day!

  7. Carrie, this sounds really good, had never heard of Pero before. I love that it isn’t a syrupy drink, they are a bit cloying, aren’t they! I can’t wait to see what else you come up with, love a good hot drink and this one looks delish!!!

  8. it looks and sounds delicious Carrie – I can almost smell it from here 🙂

  9. Carrie, The drink is wonderful. But what I like even more is your last phrase “Recognize a blessing and be a blessing today.” You truly are a blessing! Thank you for being you! You help make WAYWOW the great place it is!
    Blessings and smiles, my friend!

    • I’m so glad you noticed that Lori. I’ve had that on the bottom of every single post since I began my blog. You are a delight and I’m thrilled to be in WAYWOW with you also. Happy New Year and wishes for joy and happiness.

  10. This looks warm and refreshing. Would love to snuggle up with the hubby on the couch with a cup of this and a good movie.

  11. Kathryn says:

    Yum, Carrie! I’m all about chocolate, but sometimes it’s nice to change it up. My dad used to drink Postum which sounds a lot like the Pero. Thanks for sharing a different drink! Stumbled and G+d

    • I used to drink Postum as a kid too, but I like Pero much better. I hope you enjoy this drink; it’s more sophisticated and grown-up than packets of hot chocolate. Let me know if you give it a try.

  12. Jess says:

  13. Emily says:

    I love a warm mug full of deliciousness 🙂 The addition of the white chocolate chips sounds divine! Thanks for linking up with Merry Monday!

  14. Mollie says:
