A Cup of Yum! 


I love my daily roasted bean fix of coffee with almond milk, but sometimes I’d like a warm drink (especially on these cold days), later in the day without the caffeine.

This here has done the trick quite well, and before I go make myself one, I’m sharing with you. 😊

Go on, grab your favorite mug ~

  • Fill 1/2 way with boiled water

Add:

  • 1 tsp almond meal (ground almonds)
  •  1/3 tsp coconut oil
  • 2-3 crushed cardamom pods
  • A pinch of cinnamon
  •  1/2 tsp ground flax (for thickening)
  •  1 tsp honey
  • A scant pinch of salt
  • Fill rest of the cup with your choice of “milk.” (I used almond)

Et voila – c’est tout!

By all means, decrease the amount of liquids for a thicker, richer drink in a small cup, and add a couple squares of 70% Lindt dark chocolate – why not…? 😉

I’ve been playing with a plant based version of Bailey’s (which is also the very perfect thing on a cold day). Hmm- perhaps I’ll perfect that straight away ;). Will share it when my tastebuds celebrate the perfect version- until then, I test 😊

Enjoy!
