Has this latest arctic blast hit you like it has Houston? Brrr!!! We are NOT used to subfreezing temps. Not that I’m complaining; the brisk weather does make me move a little faster when outside, but I also find that I want to curl up on the couch with a good book and cup of hot cocoa.
Except I did that yesterday. And the day before. And with January diet resolutions and what not, I can’t drink gallons of hot cocoa every day and still fit into my new Christmas clothes.
Enter my super-simple low-calorie, dairy and gluten free, cinnamon/vanilla almond milk that is pretty much amazing and needs an amazing name to match (any creative minds out there?).
For the ingredients, I used
1 tbsp of almond butter
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 capsules lecithin (helps the almond butter dissolve, plus it’s a good source of choline for the nervous system)
4 cups warm to hot water
put all ingredients in blender and blend for 1 minute or until white and frothy.
