When I gave up coffee/caffeine a few years back, what I missed most was simply having a study or driving companion. My favorite tradition was grabbing an iced soy latte from Starbucks on late study nights or long car trips. When I started to see the negative effects caffeine (especially coffee) had on my body, I started experimenting with caffeine-less drinks, and came up with quite a few delicious recipes that filled my coffee void. If you know me, you know that I am always always trying to slip in gut-healing and nourishing ingredients into anything I can, so this one has a little punch of ginger that makes it SO yummy and the perfect double-duty drink.
The ingredients are also super simple, so you're not going to have to order anything weird online or ahead of time. You probably already have all (or most) of the ingredients in your cabinet! Let's get into it:
-2 Cups Unsweetened Almond Milk (I like Elmhurst, because it's super creamy with NO fillers!)
-1 tsp Cinnamon
-1/2 tsp Nutmeg
-1/2 tsp Ginger
-2 TBSP Honey
-1 tsp Coconut Manna (not essential, but gives it a creamy flavor)
Step #1: In a small pot, add almond milk and place burner on medium/high heat. Allow to reach a simmer, and then turn down heat to maintain.
Step #2: Add in coconut manna and let melt.
Step #3: Add in remaining ingredients and stir until no longer clumpy, and well combined.
Step #4: Fill a cup with ice, and pour mixture on top.
Step #5: Enjoy!
