Star anise, a licorice-flavored spice from Southeast Asia, is thought to be beneficial for digestion (reduces bloating, stomach pain, and, um, flatulence), which makes this a nice accompaniment to a morning plate of bread and cheese. Try it—it's delicious!
In a pot on medium heat, warm milk, molasses, and star anise until mixture just comes to a boil, about 7 minutes, whisking constantly. If the milk becomes frothy and attempts to boil over, remove from heat. Pour into teacups or a mug and serve hot.
