Servings 1


  • 3/4-1 cup sparkling cider or apple juice
  • 1-2 teaspoons non-dairy creamer or plant milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon + extra for topping
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • Pinch ginger
  • Non-dairy ice cream I use NadaMoo vanilla to keep the recipe oil-free.


  • Mix spices and creamer/plant milk in a small bowl.
  • Pour sparkling cider into a cup or mug.
  • 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!)
