Warm Honey Bear Milk for Children

Sharing is caring!

Milk, Cinnamon and Honey,  Good for Bears and Little Ones

Our family has all kinds of serious allergies.  We have been able to accommodate most of them.  When my eldest son was little he was very allergic to chocolate,.  He eventually grew  out of it, but now I am allergic to it. When the rest of the family was having hot chocolate I would make him this special milk drink.

As he was so little his special beverage needed a special name.  Bears and honey go well together.  So this is our families recipe for Warm Honey Bear Milk.

Warm Honey Bear Milk Recipe

For each serving you will need:

1 cup of milk

1 tsp of honey (or sugar)

1/4 tsp vanilla

1/4 tsp sugar and 1/4 tsp of cinnamon for topping.

Mix together the milk and honey.  Honey, Beverage, RecipeWarm  in a cappuccino steam  maker if you have one, that’s how I make it now.  Otherwise warm the milk in a saucepan on the stove and place it in a blender to froth it up, that’s how I made it when the were little.





Pour into a pretty mug and sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar.

Watch out for white sparkly bears and little boys, they love this stuff.

    Hi Nikki:

    This drink really is every bit as good as hot chocolate and because it has no caffeine and likely less sugar it is much more soothing.

    I hope you did make yourself some. Let me know how you liked it.

  2. Leanna, what a great Mom you are. This not only sounds delish, I bet it made your son feel special. Allergies can be rough, especially if it has to leave someone out of the treat. So cool that you figured out a way for him to join in the fun and tradition of warm winter drinks. This sounds delish and soothing, I’m going to break out our espresso maker and froth up a batch! It’s cold here today I could use a little treat to warm up! Thanks for sharing.

  3. This sounds amazing! I love alternatives to hot cocoa. Even though I love chocolate, it’s nice to try something else once in a while. Maybe I’ll try it with my nephews when they come over tomorrow. And the name is so sweet!

      Hi Gina: Let me know if your nephews enjoy it. Little boys especially like anything with a cool name. Let me know what you think. Leanna

    That’s great Kristin. I bet your kids enjoy it too. Its funny with children how they want everything to have a name. If you called it warm milk they wouldn’t want it, but Grama’s coco milk, that;s a treat. lol

    Thank you for commenting, I hope you tell your Mom about it as well. Leanna

  5. My mom has always given a variation of this to my kids . She calls it coco milk. No idea how she came up with that one for a non chocolate drink. She is grandma though so I guess she can do as she pleases. 😉

  6. Oh how cute is that story and how you made this special drink for your son Leanna. My girls would love honey bear milk! I’m drooling over those mugs!! They are perfect for this drink!!

      Hi Katrin: Its a really nice way to have them drink milk. In the evenings on a cold day it use to relax them as well. I typically always have these simple ingredients on hand. I hope they like it as much as my munchkins did.

      Thanks again for commenting. Leanna

  7. Mmmm, this sound kinda like a hot vanilla with the added spice of cinnamon. Yum! I’m sure it’s delicious sitting around a crackling fire! Thanks for sharing your recipe!

      Hi Erin: Its a nice change from hot chocolate, I had to find an alternative, but I think this is every bit as good.. Thank you for commenting.

  8. OMG you’re allergic to chocolate – you poor girl you! Second, you have a cappuccino machine – when can I come over? How adorable is this idea, Leanna. You’re such a great Mom and Grandma.

      I would come visit the day I figure out how to make steamed gingerbread pudding with gran marnier sauce. My eldest son bought me that gorgeous maker about 14 years ago. It works well with the blender just more dishes.

  9. I love the story of your son and how you made him the milk, mine have allergies too so I understand what is like. And I love this kind of Milk my youngest still likes it.

      Its great when you have insomnia. Giving it the bear name made in kid approved. Thank you for commenting, and don’t real allergies suck!!!.
