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 is delicious! I only used 1 tsp of maple syrup, and it was perfect (this is coming from someone who likes sweets)! Making another one right now!

    Since I don’t have most of the ingredients, I riffed this delicious sounding recipe. I used unsweetened almond milk, cinnamon and two teaspoons of honey. It was warm, comforting and delicious!

    Such a simple way to flavor up your regular almond milk. I love it and it’s perfect for the holiday season. I’ve been waking up and enjoying my warm milk daily during my morning routine. It starts my day off right with some relaxation and pizzazz. This is delicious!

    Hi Karen.

    Thanks for the comment. I looked in our email list and your email is not present. I am not sure why you would be getting our feed if you aren’t apart of our community. Facebook places ads in peoples Facebook feeds, we don’t. Sorry we couldn’t be more of assistance.
