Spiced Almond Milk Steamer



It's still cold in Utah....so cold.

I've been making Homemade Almond milk...steamers!

Perfect for a cold, snowy morning.






You will notice that homemade almond milk tends to separate after it sits for a while.  No need to panic.  All is well.  Just give the milk a shake.




Perfect.




This is my latest comforting drink after a cold, frigid morning run or when I just want to warm up by the fire with the latest episode of Downton Abbey.  I'm not fond of overly sweet hot chocolate.  In fact, I will make my hot chocolate with unsweetened cocoa with a drop or two of vanilla and that's it.

You will need:

1 cup (8 oz or 240 mL) almond milk or any other nut milk, heated
1 teaspoons (15 mL) raw honey (or to taste)
pinch of turmeric, ground cardamom, nutmeg and cinnamon
1/2 teaspoons (8 mL) vanilla extract





I'm going to use the milk frother that my daughter gave me for Christmas.  I use it about 20x a day.  Love it!

The great thing about this recipe is that one can decide just how much of the spice one wants.  I'm sharing what I like.




To one cup of almond milk add 1 teaspoon of honey.




Here is where one can decide.  Do you want a smidgen, a pinch, or a dash?




I'm using 1 smidgen of turmeric (great for inflammation, btw)

You can read more about the super powers of turmeric at Turmeric: The Golden Child  



One smidgen of ground cardamom.




A healthy dash of ground cinnamon.



A few grates of fresh nutmeg or one smidgen.




I almost forgot the vanilla.




I like 1/2 teaspoons of this lovely vanilla.




Heat the milk and spices until steaming.




Pour.




Notice the froth.  This is frother is so fabulous.




Sip.  Ahhhhh.

  2. Oh wow. This looks so good. I love the cardamom and turmeric in there. I need this! But I don't have a steamer!! Can I blend it/warm it up, or warm it up, then blend it? Is it not even close to the same??

    1. I used to just mix the ingredients in a cup then microwave it until hot. That works just as good.

    1. The biggest reason I use turmeric is inflammation. I just like to partner turmeric with cardamom.

  9. Mmmm,

    I had to make a few substitutes because I didn't have any of those spices so I just melted in some Jet Puffed Marshmallow cream and some chocolate sprinkles. Perfect for a cold rainy day!

    1. It's too bad you took a soothing steamer and ruined it with marshmallow cream and chocolate sprinkles. You must live in the Seattle area :)

    2. :) Thats how we do in Seattle. .... not.... there's probably a cooler hippier way to do it

    3. It's your job to come up with a hippier way. Pass it on when you have perfected it.
