Being lactose intolerant, when I found this recipe on one of my favorite blogs, Joy the Baker, I was so excited! I normally don’t like the taste of almond milk straight from the fridge, but heated up with the added spices….yum! Believe it or not (I can’t even believe I’m saying it!), this might have to replace my morning cup of coffee now and again. That’s a big deal people! It didn’t take long to make at all, and it is the perfect drink for these lingering winter days. I hope you try it out!
Vanilla Almond Steamer
vanilla almond milk (enough to fill your mug)
1/2 teaspoon cardamon
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon vanilla sugar (optional, instead you could use honey)
Heat the milk in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Once steaming, stir in the remaining ingredients and remove from heat. You could go the extra mile and add some bourbon (at night haha), or serve with a cinnamon stick.
