1wholecinnamon stick (or 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon // I prefer the stick!)
1pinchground black pepper
Sweetener of choice (i.e. maple syrup, coconut sugar, or stevia to taste)
If you are a Goddess add a shot of Makers Mark but only if you are a Goddess!
To a small saucepan, almond milk, ground turmeric, ground ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon stick, coconut oil, black pepper, and sweetener of choice (I usually add 1 Tbsp (15 ml) maple syrup // amount as original recipe is written // adjust if altering batch size).
Whisk to combine and warm over medium heat. Heat until hot to the touch but not boiling - about 4 minutes - whisking frequently.
Turn off heat and taste to adjust flavor. Add more sweetener to taste or more turmeric or ginger for intense spice + flavor.
Serve immediately, dividing between two glasses and leaving the cinnamon stick behind. Best when fresh, though leftovers can be stored covered in the refrigerator for 2-3 days. Reheat on the stovetop or microwave until hot.
