Chef's Notes

Substitutions
Use whole cinnamon, clove, ginger, and turmeric, instead of ground, by simmering them in the plant-based milk for about ten minutes and straining them out when serving.

Make it creamier
Unsweetened, (always) organic soy milk will result in the creamiest consistency among the most common kinds of plant milk.

Consider adding an additional teaspoon of tahini to make it creamier, but know that it will add a slight tahini flavor to the milk, which is great if you love tahini!

Or, use almond butter or another nut or seed butter in place of the tahini. They’ll make the drink a little creamier and add a bit of natural sweetness without sugar.

Consider using four ounces of BPA-free canned light coconut milk in place of four ounces of the other plant-based milk.

Add some sweetness
The tahini gives this a little natural sweetness. If you’d like a bit more, add a teaspoon of pure maple syrup.

If you have a blender handy, you could add one or two dates and blend well for some natural sweetness. This will also ensure that the spices are well blended with the milk.
