Warm Maple Vanilla Almond Milk – Vegan & Gluten Free

Warm Maple Vanilla Almond Milk - Vegan Gluten Free-

Late night snacking can sometimes be an issue. Boredom, TV watching, internet surfing, etc. I’ve found that drinking warm, comforting herbal tea brews can hit the spot, but sometimes you want something a little more indulgent tasting, if you know what I mean. Like, if you crave vanilla ice cream as a snack, a peppermint tea just isn’t going to cut it.

Enter this Warm Maple Vanilla Almond Milk. It’s a mouthful, I know, but it’s a creamy, dreamy mouthful. 😉

We ditched our microwave over a year ago, mostly because of space. Food photography props now dominate the area it used to live. I barely remember even using it, but I vividly recall cleaning that bugger.

As a result, I make this warm almond milk on the stovetop in a little saucepan. Easy, but it does take a little while longer. You want to be careful not to scorch your milk. The slower, lower heating method allows for the vanilla and maple flavours to really absorb.

This is a simple, yet decadent treat reminiscent of a flavoured cappuccino. No refined sugar syrup or creepy trans fats like in those coffee house varieties. No caffeine either so don’t worry about not being able to get to sleep later.


Sweet dreams! 🙂

I just can't wait to try this! Since it doesn't have caffeine, it really will be a perfect little late-night treat when I cuddle in to watch a movie or read a good book! Ah - I can picture it now! Honestly, though - I may just have to go make this ASAP - it looks way too good to wait until evening! Can't wait to share this great idea - definitely pinning! Stay warm, friend - and keep these inspired ideas coming! :D
