Ginger honey cinnamon latte

Ginger is a fantastic flavor boost for coffee. Widely recognized for its health benefits, especially as it pertains to stomach issues¹, ginger also adds a wonderfully sweet and earthy flavor to your cup. Today I have combined ginger with two other health-boosting ingredients — honey and cinnamon. The result is a palate-pleasing, immune-boosting, and decidedly healthy twist on your favorite morning libation. Enjoy!


Ingredients

1 cup almond milk

1 tablespoon fresh ginger (an approximate 1-inch slice)

1 teaspoon cinnamon

2 ounces (doppio) espresso

1 teaspoon organic honey


Directions

1) Take your fresh ginger and cut off approximately 1 tablespoon. You can slice it (about 1 inch thick) or use a peeler.

3) Add honey to the mixture and increase the heat slightly. Simmer for approximately 2 more minutes — just until bubbles start to form on the side of your pan.
