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.
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)

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.
Notice the froth. This is frother is so fabulous.
