Warm Coconut Milk with Almonds, Maca + Honey

What to drink as a remedy for a bleak, grey day when the wind is howling and the sky is thick with cloud.

My go-to winter warming drink is a blend of coconut milk and almond milk that is infused with an uplifting mix of spices, vanilla, honey, and a teaspoon of maca powder to give it an extra nutritional boost – it’s not bad with a nip of whiskey either…

 Warm Coconut Milk with Almonds, Maca + Honey

1 x 400ml coconut milk

1½ cups milk of your choice – I used unsweetened almond milk

½ cup almonds, lightly roasted, skins removed

3 tbsp honey

1 vanilla bean, scraped

2 tsp ground cinnamon

1 tsp maca powder

1/2 tsp ground clove

15ml whiskey, optional

Warm Coconut Milk with Almonds, Maca + Honey

Place lightly roasted almonds in a bowl and pour over coconut milk and almond milk. Let the almonds soak for at least 2 hours or overnight to soften.

Blend milks and almonds for 1 minute. Pour mixture through a fine-mesh sieve over a sauce pan. Add cinnamon, clove, honey, vanilla, maca powder, and whiskey (if you are using) and bring up to a gentle simmer. Let the milky mixture warm, whisking ever now and again to make sure everything is well combined. Taste and adjust to your liking.

Divide between four mugs and serve with a sprinkling of cinnamon and clove.
