With the seasonal flavors of brown sugar and molasses, these Gingerbread Steamers are the perfect warm drink for a quiet evening by the fire. I’m one of 12 food bloggers Cooking Together to #GiveGallons to those in need this holiday season!
Gingerbread is one of our family’s favorite seasonal flavors so I knew that I wanted to create a Gingerbread Steamer recipe for the American Dairy Association Mideast and participate in a great cause. Milk steamers are the perfect beverage to serve during the holidays because they are enjoyed by children and adults alike. If you enjoy gingerbread you will love this warm cup of comfort!
I can’t ever in my life remember a time that I looked in my refrigerator and didn’t find milk. Sadly, many are not so fortunate. I was surprised to learn that nutrient-rich milk remains one of the most requested and least available items at our country’s food banks.
So I’m starting off this holiday season asking you (yes YOU!) to deliver the gift of milk to those who need it most in your community. Head to your local food bank or donate online through the Great American Milk Drive. I know that this space here is valuable and I don’t often come to you with requests, so please know that this is close to my heart.
A few years a go I had the pleasure of touring Ohio’s dairy farms. I even got to feed that baby calf pictured above! I can tell you that all of the dairy farmers I met were committed to bringing you safe, nutritious, milk and dairy products. Nutritionists recommend 3 servings of milk a day, but 46 million Americans served by Feeding America only get on average 1 gallon of milk ALL year.
If you are not in a place where you can help financially I have good news!
Like, share or comment on this recipe and others on the American Dairy Association Mideast’s Facebook fanpage, and $1 will be donated to the Great American Milk Drive, through Dec. 12. Put milk on the tables of families in your area and across America! You don’t even have to leave my site- just click “like” from here!

I’m a huge gingerbread coffee fan, but I don’t drink coffee at night because of the caffeine. This steamer sounds like the perfect solution. Also it’s very touching that you and the American Dairy Association are giving back this Christmas.
