Gingerbread-Latte knowitall 448

By Hiba Giacoletto, Healthwise

Do you love the taste of Starbuck’s Gingerbread Latte? Here is a healthier version, made with a simplified almond milk and maple syrup as a sweetener. The taste really comes from the combination of spices - if you don’t have one or two of them, that's OK - just leave them out.

Gingerbread Latte

2 tbsp almond butter (made only of ground almonds)
1.5 dl water
1 tbsp maple syrup (or to taste)
1.5 cup hot coffee
1/2 tsp ground ginger + 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon +1/8 tsp ground cloves +1/8 tsp allspice +1/8 tsp ground nutmeg

Combine the almond butter and water in a blender and blend until smooth. This is actually a lazy version of almond milk which is better than store-bought almond milk as it has no additives. You can also use 1.5 dl milk of your choice instead.

Add the coffee, spice mix and maple syrup. Blend until frothy, then put through a sieve while pouring into a mug to avoid the gritty bits. Serve with a cinnamon stick to stir. Makes 2 large mugs.
