Spiced Milk Steamer (Dairy and Sugar Free)-10 Point Food Rating Scale

I seem to be in the mood for hot drinks lately, it must be all this cold weather.  Straying from my usual chocolate craving, I went with a warm spice blend instead.  I love these flavours, as well as their relaxing, immune boosting and digestive properties.

In our house we have been using a 10 point rating scale on food. (See Below)  The scale was designed to give us an idea of how much the girls really like, or dislike certain foods.  It is very helpful when creating new recipes.  My youngest gave this drink a 10 which on our scale means you love it and could have it every day.

Ingredients (serves 2)

  • 1 1/2 cup non dairy milk (I used cashew milk)
  • 5-6 dates
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon fennel
  • 1/4 teaspoon anise
  • 1/4 teaspoon cardamom
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  • pinch of cloves
  • pinch black pepper

  1. Combine all ingredients into a blender and puree until smooth.
  2. Pour into a small sauce pan.
  3. Heat while stirring frequently with a whisk.
  4. Bring to a boil.
  5. Pour into mugs and enjoy!
