  1. Bring a large, deep skillet to medium-high heat. In batches, saute spinach until it is wilted and soft. Place cooked spinach in a colander to drain; set aside.
  2. In the same pan, add butter and let it melt.  
  3. Add flour to the pan and use a whisk to combine it with the melted butter until it reaches the consistency of a paste. 
  4. While continuing to whisk, slowly add in Califia Farms Unsweetened Almond Beverage and Califia Farms Unsweetened Better Half.
  5. Keep whisking the mixture until it is thick and creamy. If you feel it isn’t thickening, turn up the heat so it is simmering, while continuing to whisk.  
  6. Add in salt and spices; mix to combine.  
  7. Remove from heat and add spinach back in; stir to combine.  
  8. Serve immediately with extra red pepper flakes. Enjoy!
