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.

      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!

      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.

    Carrie,

    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

      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.

    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.

    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!!!

    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.
