Need some warming up? We've had a couple of really cold spells here in Calgary recently. Having some warm drink recipes is a great way to help you get through cold, wintery days.
This recipe is a new favourite. I love cardamom in baking, so wanted to create a warm, spiced drink that incorporated this sweet spice.
1 cup almond milk or coconut milk
2 medjool dates
¼ inch piece of ginger root
¼ teaspoon ground cardamom
pinch of salt
Optional: ½ tablespoon collagen powder
Gently heat the milk in a small saucepan over medium heat. While it warms up put remaining ingredients in a high-speed blender. Add warm milk and blend until the dates are emulsified into the drink.
The dates in this drink add sweetness without causing a spike in blood sugars. Sometimes I double this and have it as my breakfast.
