Sahlab (cinnamon milk)

Sahlab is a hot drink … something like hot chocolate … but its with cinnamon and milk … so today i was feeling a little cold and decided to make myself a cup …. to make u will need:

– two cinnamon sticks

– powder milk … 3 to 4 ts per cup

– corn starch …. 1 ts per cup .. its a drink so u dont want it too thick

– sugar … to taste

add water and cinnamon stick

This amount was made for 3 people … so u can decrease the cinnamon stick to one if its lesser …

Start by adding the cinnamon stick to 3 cups water …


Bring to a boil ….then let it boil on low heat for 20 to 25 mins … until the color is as u see in the photo … and the cinnamon sticks would open …

add milk

Then add the powder milk … 3 ts per cup …  and the sugar .. mix it well …and bring it back to a boil …

melt cornstarch

Now mix the cornstarch(1ts per cup) with a little water ….

add to milk

Add the cornstarch mix to the milk and whisk it until it gets thick … remember this is a drink … so u dont want it too thick


And thats it … serve it with a sprinkle of cinnamon …

Enjoy 🙂 …
