    • 2 cups water
    • 1 cups whole milk
      • (or substitute unsweetened silk coconut milk, but it won’t be as creamy)
    • 4 1/2 - 6 teaspoons of sugar
      • (or substitute a healthier sweetener, but it is never the same.)
      1 stick cinnamon divided in half
      and/or 12 Green Cardamom (pressed and cracked)
