What Is Butter Beer?

Before we take a look at the recipe, let’s take a quick look at what Butter Beer is. Well, unless you’ve been living under a rock since the early 2000s, then you probably will have heard of Harry Potter.

The books and movies took the world by storm, and many people began to dream of getting their letter to Hogwarts. 

While this might be unrealistic, there are many things that you can do to bring the Wizarding World to you. One way that many people do this is by making their own Butter Beer.

If you are lucky enough to live near Orlando, then you may be familiar with the butterscotch and shortbread flavor of butter beer. But for many people, this frothy drink is something that they have yet to taste. 

But worry not! If you can’t get to Orlando, you can easily bring the sweet taste of butter beer to you. It is surprisingly easy to make, and you will be able to enjoy it in no time too!

So without further ado, let’s dive in and take a look at the different ingredients you need to make your own Butter Beer.

What You Need

There are lots of different recipes that you can use to make butter beer. A simple Google search will provide a ton of different recipes for you to check out, and it can be overwhelming to find the recipe that is right for you!

Something that you will likely notice is that quite a lot of the recipes on the internet aren’t particularly healthy, and that is because Butter Beer isn’t designed to be healthy (see also “20 Delicious Healthy Pumpkin Recipes“).

It is designed to be a treat, and so a lot of the recipes are particularly unhealthy. 

But we’re looking at a healthier recipe for this drink, so we have substituted some of the less healthy ingredients for healthy alternatives.

With that in mind, let’s take a look at the ingredients that you need to make healthy alcohol-free Harry Potter Butter Beer. 

To make this recipe, you will need the following:

  • 4 Cans of Cream Soda
  • 4 Tablespoons of Sugar-free Caramel Sauce
  • ½ a teaspoon of Cinnamon
  • 1 Cup of Canned Coconut Milk
  • 4 Tablespoons Melted Ghee
  • 2 Tablespoons of Maple Syrup
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

The first three ingredients in the list will be used to make the Butter Beer itself, while the latter 4 will be used to prepare the cream that goes on top of the Butter Beer. 

Once you have gathered all the ingredients listed above, you are ready to start making your Butter Beer. So let’s take a look at a step-by-step guide for making Butter Beer.

How To Make Butter Beer

As you can see, the ingredients list that you need to make Butter Beer is relatively small.

You don’t need too many ingredients to make this drink, so as you would expect, it is surprisingly easy to make butter beer. Without further ado, let’s dive right in and take a look at how to make it. 

This recipe will serve 4 people and will take less than 10 minutes to prepare. 

Step One

First things first, add the 4 cans of cream soda, 4 tablespoons of caramel sauce, and ½ teaspoon of Cinnamon to a bowl and whisk.

Once whisked, the ingredients should have combined creating a slightly creamy-looking mixture. 

Step Two

Pour your coconut milk into a mason jar and shake it vigorously. Shake the milk for a prolonged period until it begins to form an airy texture.

Then add the remaining ingredients for the cream (melted ghee, maple syrup, and vanilla extract) and stir them in until thoroughly blended together. 

Step Three

Add your mixture from step one into a tall glass. This mixture is the “drink” portion of your Butter Beer. Then follow this with the “cream” mixture that we prepared in step two. 

Step Four

With your drink prepared, it is time to add the finishing touches.

You don’t need to add any finishing touches, but if you are serving butter beer for your guests, it is a good idea to add these to ensure your Butter Beer is impressive.

Simply sprinkle some cinnamon or drizzle with some sugar-free caramel sauce, and your butter beer is ready to serve!

Optional Changes

The great thing about this Butter Beer recipe is that there are a couple of different changes that you can make if the recipe above isn’t right for you. Here are some of the changes you can make:

  • Swap Coconut Milk for Coconut Cream for a thicker texture, more like whipped cream than runny cream. 
  • Swap your cream soda for apple cider to create a Butter Beer that is perfect for the fall. 
  • Add a cinnamon stick to the rim of the glass to make your Butter Beer look even better. 

Summary

In short, making healthy alcohol-free Harry Potter Butter Beer is surprisingly easy. In this guide, we have taken a look at exactly how to do this and what ingredients you need to make delicious Butter Beer.
