  1. Heat the soy milk and water in a small pot over medium heat (or in the microwave) until hot but not boiling. Remove from heat.

  2. Meanwhile, blend the remaining ingredients in a high-speed blender until like a paste.

  3. Once these ingredients are blitzed together, add the hot liquid into the blender and blend again until frothy.

  4. Pour and serve!

  • ⅓  cup soy milk

  • ⅓  cup water

  • 3-4 small dates, chopped

  • 2 rounded teaspoon fresh ginger, finely chopped

  • ½ teaspoon ground turmeric

  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon

  • ½ teaspoon ground cardamom (or two pods)

  • 1 teaspoon dessicated coconut

  • A grind of black pepper


Soy-free option: substitute soy milk for oat milk.

Chef's tips

Bear in mind that there is wide variation among plant-milks and some froth well, while others barely froth at all. I have found that Vitasoy Protein Plus soy milk froths best.
