    • Hi Grace,

      After I doubled checked and remake it again tonight. I have to apologise to you.
      My assistant made some typos in the recipe section, and I have fixed it.

      It should be 1 cup of almond milk and plus 1 tsp vanilla extract.

      Sorry for inconvenience and thank you for leaving me a comment.
