Mmm! Hot Spiced Almond Milk

Across the entire United States right now (and other places too!) the hot topic (pun intended!) is the weather. It’s FREEZING out there!

On Many cold nights, Bruce loves a scalding hot cup of Asian tea. I always keep four or five kinds in the pantry for him. But the past few years, I can’t drink it at night anymore as it is too acidic. Hot Cocoa is swell, and I make that with cocoa & coconut milk sometimes. But it is heavy and rich to have too often. So one night, while poking around in the pantry, deciding what to have, my eyes locked on a secret love of mine. The jar of ground cloves.

My Hot Almond “Latte” Spices

I loooove the spicy, sensual smell of cloves. I sneak pinches into my chocolates and my chilis. Along side my love, Cloves, was his posse, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla.

These are delicious and nutritious super foods – most spices contain antioxidants and have anti-inflammatory properties.

And the proverbial light bulb went off. I love chai latte. I bet I could make it using Almond Milk instead of the tea,…

Stir in 1-2 tsp raw sugar (or stevia or agave), 1/4 tsp cinnamon, 1/8 tsp nutmeg, 1/8 tsp of cloves (i added a bit more ๐Ÿ˜‰ ). Add 1/4 – 1/2 tsp vanilla. Taste, and adjust sugar or spices to your liking if needed. If it is too spicy, add a little more almond milk or water. Stir, and enjoy!
