Ingredients:

1/2 to 1 tsp dried ginger, to taste (I recommend starting low and building up)
1/4 tsp + 1/8 tsp dried cinnamon, divided
1/4 tsp dried nutmeg or cardamom, to taste (or a mix of both)
2 - 4 drops liquid stevia or 1 tsp maple syrup, or to taste (omit if using sweetened milk)
3/4 cup non-dairy milk of choice (I like unsweetened vanilla almond milk and sweetened almond-coconut milk in this)
3/4 cup hot (near boiling) water

Method:
If using a microwave:
Place ginger, 1/4 tsp cinnamon and nutmeg and/or cardamom in a large mug, along with your sweetener of choice. Add the non-dairy milk and stir well. Heat on medium power in the microwave for 20 seconds, stir, and then heat for an additional 20 seconds on medium power. Top up with hot water, sprinkle with the additional 1/8 tsp cinnamon, and enjoy.

If using a stove top: Place ginger, 1/4 tsp cinnamon and nutmeg and/or cardamom in a small saucepan, along with your sweetener of choice. Add your non-dairy milk and water and stir well. Warm on medium heat, stirring regularly, until ready. Transfer to a large mug, top with the additional 1/8 tsp cinnamon, and enjoy.
