Forget counting sheep. Drink this warm, delicately spiced milk before you head to bed, and it may just help you catch more Zzz's. Feel free to use whatever milk you prefer, whether it's cow's milk, almond milk, cashew milk, or rice milk. You'll love the subtle notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla, and the touch of sweetness from pure maple syrup. Once you try the cozy drink, you'll want to wrap your hands around a warm mug of it every night. It's nothing short of delicious.
1¼ cups unsweetened almond milk or whole milk
1 (3-inch) cinnamon stick

How to Make It
Place milk and cinnamon stick in a small saucepan; bring to a simmer over medium. Reduce heat to low, simmer until milk is infused with cinnamon, about 10 minutes.
