Hot Drinks for Small Fries

By: Foodlets

There's nothing more snuggly than sitting around with warm mugs of goodness this time of year. And if you're not into a massive sugar crash after they've gulped down hot chocolate, look no further than your favorite summer smoothie for inspiration.

We recently discovered the joys of warm flavored milk at our house, and here's the great thing: Anything works. Frozen strawberries plus milk and a zap in the microwave? Sweet and yummy. Peanut butter and banana? Thick, creamy and wonderful. We're doing frozen peaches with milk next time, plus a pinch of cinnamon. Sounds a lot like pie, without all that pesky crust.
