Spiced Almond Milk

I looooove to sit at a cute little cafe and enjoy something warm and comforting. It brings back memories of when Ryan and I went backpacking through Europe before we started our family.

As much as lattes and cappuccinos from adorable cafes taste so darn good, my wallet and caffeine addiction sure take the brunt. Why can’t I just have a yummy drink that warms my soul without breaking the bank or fueling my caffeine addiction?

Ding! We created our own version that totally does the trick and I can’t wait for you to try it too. This heart-happy treat that won’t make you feel guilty if you become addicted! It’s called Spiced Almond Milk— it’s full of goodness AND it’s from the beloved Fresh Start: A 21-day Cleanse

While cleansing, we encourage our cleansers to drink it nightly during the 21-day whole food program. The combination of spices and nutty-sweetness is a perfect way to end the day, and it’s so easy to make at home which means you’re saving tons of hard-earned cash.


Spiced Almond Milk

  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 1 1x
  • Category: Drinks


This is the perfect little treat at the end of a long day. The combination of almond milk + warming digestive spices balances your blood sugar and stabilizes your metabolism, while the extra protein boost from the almond butter helps curb hunger pains.



  • 1 cup almond milk (unsweetened)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • A pinch of ground ginger
  • A pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter


  1. Combine all ingredients in a small pan.
  2. Heat on the stove over medium heat until warm.*
  3. Pour into a mug.


*Pro tip: After heating the ingredients on the stove, pour the mixture into the blender and run it for about 30 seconds (leave a little hole in the lid for the steam to escape). This makes sure everything is mixed super well, and adds a bit of froth to make you feel like you just got served at your favorite coffee shop!

    This drink was amazing! I love Chai Lattes and this was such a similar taste but different enough to be a completely new drink. I feel so warm and relaxed plus it curbs that after dinner urge for dessert or snack! I put everything in a big mug, warmed it in the microwave then used a handheld frother to mix it all up. Perfectly simple!

    This is so delicious. I made it this morning with dates instead of maple syrup. Blended all the ingredients then heated on the stove. I made it again tonight with honey and it still tasted great. Will try it with maple syrup next thanks for this amazing recipe this will replace my Starbucks soy latte

    This drink was rather delightful! I even found that its good iced!! Sort of like a halfway horchata, minus the rice flavor. Will definitely be keeping this one.

    Hey Sandria,

    Yes, you can use honey if that is what you prefer. I use honey whenever I make this recipe and it is delicious!!

    The drink is very good and was the perfect choice when I stopped drinking alcohol. The spices I used were turmeric, ginger, and cinnamon 1 tablespoon MCT oil and organic peanut butter in the unsweetened almond milk and with monk fruit and stevia as sweeteners. The tea was excellent. Thanks
