Warm milky drinks. Help please!

Hi all :)
Looking for ideas on how to flavour my warm milk. I've made mixed spice and molasses, milo, vanilla and honey, brown sugar and cinnamon, spiced milk tea etc. It's really cold here and warm creamy drinks get me by and I would love a few new ideas. Please!!!

I love lemon aid mixed with buttermilk. It was a very popular drink in Northern Germany. Also orange juice with buttermilk. I think both of these would make milk curdle, but if you like buttermilk...

I add chlorophyl to milk. Here, the chlorophyl is mint flavored, so maybe mint with milk work. (I don't like Canadian milk unless it is flavored--strawberry syrup or another berry syrup works--or served on ice--very cold). I know, a weird quirk of mine that I claim there is a difference between milk from the US and that in eastern Ontario...it's been a quirk of mine for over 25 years...my brother says the same thing--Ontario milk tastes "funny." I blame it on the feed dairy cows are fed here....

With warm, or hot milk, try adding something like vanilla, sweetener, and pearl tapioca. The tapioca will add thermal mass to the milk, and turn it into a hot, or warm pudding. It will warm you to your bones.

You can also add egg yolks and heat, but not to a boil. Flavor with anything from flavorings you like. Chocolate and raspberry, or cherry come to mind. Makes a wonderful custard. Maple is great with hot milk.

Caramel also adds great flavor as does butterscotch. All of these flavors are considered warm and comforting.

The aforementioned malt will enhance any of the above listed flavors.

I was thinking of ice cream toppings in the milk like caramel, butterscotch, chocolate, strawberry.
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

Mix together 2 cups of sugar, 1 cup of water and 1 envelope of KoolAide. It makes a great syrup to flavor milk with. Raspberry, orange and strawberry all work well but you can get creative. If you try one and don't like it in milk, you can always mix in some more water or use it as a syrup on pancakes.
