  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk divided
  • 2-3 pinches nutmeg
  • A dash of pure vanilla extract
  • Honey or maple syrup to sweeten
  • 1 scoop plain unsweetened protein powder, optional


  • In a mug add 1 - 1 1/4 C almond milk along with the nutmeg. Warm to the desired temperature or slightly hotter.
  • While that is warming, add the scoop of protein powder to 1/4 - 1/2 C almond milk and stir until no lumps remain.
  • When the almond milk is hot add the dash of vanilla, and the protein mixture(if adding protein) and stir well. Serve immediately and do not reheat.


Do not reheat this drink if you've added protein powder! I'm not sure about all protein powders, but mine, when microwaved is not pleasant.
I use Presidents Choice Natural Source Whey Protein Isolate, the unflavored and unsweetened version. I have not experimented with any other protein powders or with using a sweetened version, but just be sure that it's one that you don't mind the flavor of on it's own before trying :)
