Vegan Gingerbread Steamer

This comforting and rich drink combines all the flavors of a gingerbread cookie that are so craveable this time of year. Just whirl everything together in your high speed blender, pour and enjoy with a cinnamon stick and sprinkle of cloves.

Vegan Gingerbread Latte

This holiday season, while you are busy baking (and eating) all the holiday cookies, consider this caffeine-free beverage as your official cookie companion.  With a sweet and delicately spicy gingerbread flavor, it is sure to keep you in the holiday spirit whether you are baking it up in your kitchen or chatting it up at a cookie exchange party.  Either way, it is the perfect cozy homemade drink to warm you up during these cold winter months.

I kept this recipe super simple and combined everything on the soup setting of my high-speed blender.  This creates both warmth and froth for the perfect steamy beverage.  It is similar to a gingerbread latte but without the caffeine, artificial flavors and refined sugars.

 

It is sweetened naturally with maple syrup and is intensely aromatic and warming.  It boasts classic gingerbread flavor from distinct Vietnamese cinnamon, sweet vanilla, warm nutmeg, rich cloves and spicy ginger. Together, the spices give this steamy beverage a comforting richness that is perfect to accompany all your holiday baking activities.

All the spices in this drink are from Frontier Co-op®. Their spices are high-quality, non-GMO, non-irradiated and non-ETO (a chemical sterilizing agent). Frontier is committed to ethical sourcing, building direct partnerships with their growers and giving back to their grower communities. And beyond the goodness for our bodies, our communities and our environment, these high-quality aromatic spices are authentically delicious and make all the difference in your recipes.

I find the combination of classic gingerbread flavors to be irresistible this festive time of year.

This gingerbread steamer recipe is vegan, dairy-free, soy-free, gluten-free and refined sugar-free.

Ingredients


Instructions

  1. Add almond milk, maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and nutmeg to a high-speed blender and blend on highest speed or the “soup setting” if you have that. Blend until hot and steamy (2-3 minutes). To speed up the process you could add already warmed almond milk to the blender.
  2. Pour the mixture (including all the froth/foam) into two mugs and garnish each mug with a cinnamon stick and a light dusting of ground cloves. Serve immediately while piping hot.

Notes

* This depends on your desired sweetness level. I recommend starting with 3 tablespoons, tasting and increasing to 4 tablespoons if needed.   You can also substitute pitted Medjool dates.  I recommend starting with 6 dates.

For added creaminess and body: add 2 tablespoons raw cashews or blanched slivered almonds

Note: You could add a touch of blackstrap molasses for even more gingerbread flavor. It can be bitter so I recommend starting with 1/4 teaspoon and tasting before adding more.
