Instructions

  1. To a small saucepan, add 2 cups almond milk, ground turmeric, ground ginger, cinnamon, orange zest and honey/maple syrup (my personal preference is 2 tablespoons of sweetening). 
  2. Whisk while warming over medium heat. Only heat until hot, not boiling. Test with your finger, or at the first sign of a little bubble, remove from stovetop.
  3. Taste and adjust flavours or sweetening if desired. Divide between two mugs. 
  4. In the same saucepan, pour the remaining 1/2 cup almond milk. Heat on medium until hot. (You can also heat on high in the microwave for two minutes—just watch that it doesn’t boil over.) Remove from heat.
  5. Using the hand-frother, froth the milk into a light but creamy foam.* 
  6. Ladle foam onto spiced milk mixtures and give a little stir. Dust with a pinch of cinnamon.
  7. Served best fresh and hot. 

Notes

* TIP: If you’re a froth-newbie, try tilting the jug towards you and angling the frother away from you, but keeping submerged in the mixture. Switch on. If you get sprayed, know that this is a very common part of the frother initiation period. Practice makes perfect lattes.  😬
