Yields2 ServingsPrep Time5 minsCook Time5 minsTotal Time10 mins

Ingredients

 2 cups plant-based milk (unsweetened, plain or vanilla)
 1 tsp ground turmeric
 ½ tsp ground cinnamon
 ½ tsp ground ginger
 4 pinches ground cardamom
 2 pinches stevia (+1–2 pinches as desired, optional)

Directions

1

Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan, over medium/medium-high heat.

2

Whisk, allowing the milk to heat through. This should only take a few minutes, so keep an eye on the milk so it doesn’t boil over or scorch.

3

Once warmed through, pour into a mug. Taste, and if you’d like a little extra sweetener, add to taste.

Chef's Notes

Spices
Feel free to tweak the spices to your taste. Add more ginger, or try some nutmeg instead of cinnamon. Also, if you are a chocolate lover, whisk in a tablespoon or two of fairly traded cocoa powder!

Stevia
If you use a sweetener, you can opt for pure maple syrup, to taste, instead.
