For All of You Cinder Fans…

She’s a cyborg. She’s a mechanic. She’s…Cinderella? Meet Cinder, the star of the first installment in Marissa Meyer’s fantastic Lunar Chronicles series. If you’re a fan, look at this recipe for a tasty beverage based on Cinder. I haven’t made this yet, but it looks like it might be pretty good. (I’m a little suspicious ofcinder the Oreo cookie, though. Maybe a gingersnap instead?) For those of you too lazy to click on a link, here’s the recipe:

The Cinder


1 cup water

1 bag of your favorite green tea

1/4 cup of low fat milk, chilled (almond milk would be great, too)

1 tablespoon brown sugar

Optional Add-ins:

1 crumbled Oreo cookie (chunky and black like cinders)

tiny pinch of black cardamom (smoky flavor of cinders)


  1. Pour water into a microwave-safe mug and heat for 2.5 minutes. Then place tea bag in this hot water and let it sit for 2-3 minutes.
  2. If you like, froth milk with a milk frother.
  3. Remove tea bag from tea.  Add brown sugar and milk to tea and stir.
  4. Sprinkle with crumbled Oreo and a tiny bit of black cardamom to taste.
  5. Enjoy!
