Begin by heating the almond milk on the stove or in the microwave. If using the stove heat to light a light boil. If microwaving, 3 minutes in a glass cup usually will do the trick but this may vary based on your microwave wattage.
Once milk has been heated, pour into a bullet blender. Add butter, spices and vanilla. Pulse until it is frothy and butter is emulsified. Pulse a little longer to ensure spices are well distributed throughout the liquid.
- Use more butter or less butter depending on your goals. If you are using the drink to tide you over between meals, opt for more. If the beverage is just a treat, add butter to taste. For me, 3/4 tbsp. is perfection.- Add more cayenne and/or ginger for a spicier drink.- You can use 1/2 water, 1/2 milk if you want to Make your almond milk go further. 2 cups of almond (or fluid) milk will yield a fairly potent drink, especially with a full tsp of turmeric. This is how I like it, but definitely adjust to your own taste. You can always add more liquid to make it more mellow.- Even when well blended their might still be some sediment on the bottom of the glass.
