A Cup Of Love

When rosy-cheeked kids come in from the cold, warm them up with hot milk beverages!

If you want to introduce different milks to your child, these recipes provide a good start. All feature a different milk as the base, with not-too-sweet ingredients to tempt kiddos.

Fresh Thyme Farmers Market carries plant-based milks as well as dairy milks. Substitute any milk you want to try; just keep the quantity the same. Hot chocolate with cashew milk, anyone?
