Our winter weather hasn’t been very kind this year, and the best way to light the fire inside is by warming your core with a bowl of hot thala-siren milk — inspired by the creatures populating The Last Jedi planet Ahch-To, home of the first Jedi Temple.
This nutritious green milk is the beverage of choice for exiled Jedi, and this warm treat is served up with a nod to Luke Skywalker’s X-wing, the illustrious starfighter that now rests on the coast of Ahch-To next to the Jedi Temple. (And remember, when temperatures heat up, you can cool down with our Thala-Siren Milkshakes!)
Ahch-To Hot Milk
What You’ll Need:
- 1 X-wing silicone mold
- 4 ounces white chocolate
- 1 cup whole milk
- 1 Tablespoon sugar
- ½ teaspoon vanilla
- ½ teaspoon almond extract
- green food-gel dye
Step 1: Place the white chocolate in a heat-safe bowl and microwave at 15-20 second intervals until melted. Spoon evenly into the X-wing silicone mold, tapping to release excess air bubbles. Place in the freezer to set.
Step 2: In a small saucepan over medium heat, bring the milk and sugar to a simmer. Stir to combine.
Step 3: When the sugar is dissolved, stir in the vanilla, almond extract, and one drop of green food-gel dye.
Step 4: Stir together, then pour into a bowl. Serve with white chocolate X-wings.
You now have the perfect drink to warm up with after sparring in an Ahch-To storm or to recover from shoveling snow in our own galaxy.
