How to change recovery key for FireVault on a Mac?

How can I change the recovery key I chose when setting up FireVault?
Change your Recovery Key

If you want to change the Recovery Key used to encrypt your startup disk, you need to turn FileVault off and back on again to generate a new key.

"Turning FileVault back on provides you with a new recovery key and allows you to again specify which users can unlock your startup disk. You won't be able to use any older recovery keys to unlock your startup disk, so be sure to store the new key in iCloud, or write it down and keep it somewhere safe."
