How to Make Vegan Butter-free Beer
Prep time
Total time
Easy vegan butter beer from Harry Potter! (It's gluten free and oil free as well.)
Recipe type: Desserts, Drinks
Cuisine: Harry Potter, Vegan, Gluten free, Oil free
Serves: 1
  • ¾-1 cup sparkling cider or apple juice
  • 1-2 teaspoons non-dairy creamer or plant milk
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon + extra for topping
  • ⅛ teaspoon nutmeg
  • Pinch ginger
  • Non-dairy ice cream (I use NadaMoo vanilla to keep the recipe oil-free.)
  1. Mix spices and creamer/plant milk in a small bowl.
  2. Pour sparkling cider into a cup or mug.
  3. Pour spice/milk mixture over cider, stir, then add a scoop of ice cream and top with extra cinnamon. If needed, pour a little more cider to make the butterbeer rise more.
If you're using a big mug, you may want to double or even triple this recipe as I did for this photo (warning--it's very sweet!)
