Heat the milk until a skin forms on top. While the milk is heating, mix together the cocoa, sugar, and cinnamon (and ancho, if using). Skim the solids off of the milk and stir in the cocoa mix. Add the almond and vanilla extract and stir.
Don’t skip mixing the dry ingredients first, you’ll have a hard time stirring in the cinnamon and cocoa otherwise.
