Brave Winter Weather and Ahch-To Storms with Thala-Siren Hot Milk

The perfect hot beverage for Jedi everywhere.

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!)

A thala-siren, which produces green milk, rests against a rock near the shore of Ahch-To in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Ahch-To Hot Milk

What You’ll Need:

Milk Ingredients:

  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ teaspoon almond extract
  • green food-gel dye

Melted white chocolate being spooned into a silicone X-wing mold.

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.

A tablespoon of sugar is poured into a saucepan.

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.

A mug of green milk with a white chocolate X-wing on the rim.

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.
