Makes: 1 serving
1 1/3 cups (325 mL) unsweetened nondairy milk, such as oat, almond, coconut or cashew, divided
1 tbsp (15 mL) No Yolking™ – 100 % Egg White Protein Powder
1 tsp (5 mL) molasses
1/2 tsp (2 mL) vanilla stevia
1/2 tsp (5 mL) gingerbread spice blend*, plus more for garnishing
1 oz (30 mL) freshly brewed espresso (optional)
- Heat 1 cup (250 mL) milk until steaming; pour over molasses, stevia and spice blend. Stir until well combined. Keep warm.
- In a large coffee mug, whisk together remaining milk and protein powder until smooth and frothy (a wand frother works really well for this). Add espresso (if using).
- Slowly pour warm milk over frothed milk mixture, allowing foam to rise to the top. Sprinkle with pinch gingerbread spice.
