Hot fennel and honey milk drink

This simple hot milk drink is perfect snack for breastfeeding mums, containing fennel seeds (a known galactologue which promotes lactation), cinnamon and honey.

A mug of it goes great with one of these lactation cookies! 🙂

*To make dairy-free, use almond or soy milk

  • milk (cows, almond or soy) 1 cup
  • honey 2-3 teaspoons
