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 looks really yummy! Wondering if I can add maybe a Tbsp of cacao to give it a nice chocolatey option?

    I just made this! It’s really delish! I steeped a chamomile tea bag in it because I’m having it before bed. Great idea, thank you!

    Can you add organic peanut butter instead of almond butter?

  9. SGS Rawkstar

    April 5th, 2017 at 5:27 pm

    Hi Louisa,

    Of course! But if you’re using the Spiced Almond Milk as part of our cleanse, we suggest avoiding peanut products over the 21 days.

    I love this night treat. But I have modified it a little bit (a lot). I use oat milk, with just a little bit of maple, and add the cinnamon, turmeric and cloves <3

    This for me is definitely an acquired taste drink. I am just drinking it for the cleanse. I don’t think I would continue unless it was for health reasons.

    I’m not a huge fan of warm drinks in the evening for whatever reason, but drinking this an hour before bed is such a lovely, comforting thing. I couldn’t believe how it wound me down and really prepped me for sleepy time! And I love the added option of the almond butter- it really pulled me through the FS21 Fall Cleanse when I was too full to eat dinner, but still needed some protein in my belly.

    Sorry if this has been asked before, but does this work if you make it ahead of time and just warm it up? Would like to be able to make a large batch to be able to quickly access.

    Hi Beth,

    I prefer to make this recipe right before enjoying. The spices and almond butter have a habit of separating. You can definitely give it a try. If so I’d suggest storing it in a jar you can give a good shake!

    This sounds good but I’m not sure I can have to Ginger due to having a blood clotting problem, I may have to ask my doctor tomorrow when I go see her.

    Hi Carol,

    Good call! It’s always best to check with your physician first. If your doctor comes back and suggests avoiding ginger, you can still enjoy this recipe, just simply leave it out!

    Can I swap out the maple syrup for honey as I have no maple syrup? Will it be the same sort of flavour?

  22. SGS Rawkstar Amanda

    March 16th, 2018 at 3:52 pm

    Hi Pip,

    Totally. The flavor with change slightly, but it will still offer you a hint of sweetness, naturally!

    A very nice change for a hot beverage! Also a great way to use up extra almond milk and/or switch it up…make it more interesting.

    I make my own almond milk using my Vitamix blender. So I used homemade almond milk, and then followed the recipe as it was outlined. Instead of warming in a saucepan however, I was able to put all ingredients directly into a large mug. Gave it a stir and nuked it for 2 mins. at Power Level 8. Then I frothed it using a tiny battery-operated frother called Aerolatte. Yum!

    HI Lynn,
