This warm, creamy, and subtly sweet drink can be a great start to a hectic day, or a great way to end one! It can be made vegan, but either version offers up some good nutrients, like calcium, potassium, protein, and vitamins D and B12.
- Combine the milk, honey, almond butter, vanilla extract, cinnamon, turmeric, ginger, and any optional spices in a small saucepan.
- Heat over medium until warmed through, whisking briskly so that the almond butter does not stick to the bottom and the spices incorporate. Do not let boil.
Optional additions: tiny pinch of ground black pepper, ground cardamom, or ground cloves.
To store - keep leftovers in an airtight container, such as a mason jar or travel mug, for up to 3 days in the refrigerator.
To reheat - warm on the stove, stirring to recombine the spices and almond butter. If reheating in the microwave, stir every 20 to 30-second interval, and keep a close eye on it so it does not bubble over.
