Microwave Coffee with Cinnamon whipped Cream

I am partial to eggs, toast and coffee for breakfast. Its easy to whip up and yum. And on days when I feel like pampering myself, I add cinnamon to my coffee. Cinnamon makes me happy. Its like Christmas and holidays. Back to airports where Cinnabon has the smell of cinnamon rolls wafting through the terminals. Makes me feel like I am going on a vacation. Before I start buying tickets, here is how its made...

Ingredients:

1 cup milk
1 teaspoon coffee
1 tablespoon sugar*
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon powder
1 1/2 tablespoons whipping cream**

Boil the milk in the microwave and add half the sugar, half the cinnamon and coffee. Stir till dissolved. In a bowl, add the remaining sugar and cinnamon to the cream. Whip till stiff peaks form. Pour the coffee in a mug and top with the cream. Sprinkle some cinnamon and coffee on the cream. Serve hot and stir the cream in the coffee and sip as it melts!

* This tastes just as good with honey or agave nectar
** For a low fat version, skip the cream, add all the cinnamon and sugar in the milk and whip the milk with a hand blender to make it frothy.

I am sending this drink to KO Rasoi’s ‘Wear Your Food’ competition. This drink was inspired by her coffee cup charm.
