Servings: 3 people


  • 3 cups unsweetened milk of choice I use coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch I use non-GMO
  • 2 ½ tablespoon maple syrup or more for taste
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • teaspoon both clove and salt I use salt because I make my coconut milk and it has less sodium
  • teaspoon turmeric for color
  • coconut cream for whipped cream optional


  • In a medium saucepan pour in 3 cups of milk.
  • Before turning on the heat whisk in 1 tablespoon of cornstarch until it's fully incorporated with no chunks.
  • Turn the heat on medium and bring to a boil, then reduce heat so the milk is at a simmer.
  • Continue to simmer for 5 minutes or until the mix starts to slightly thicken.
  • Whisk in the remaining ingredients (spices, vanilla, and maple syrup).
  • Chill or drink warm.
  • Top with a dollop of coconut whipped cream(or regular if desired) and a sprinkle of nutmeg.
