Instructions

    1. Make you espresso or coffee and set aside.
    2. Take your milk of choice and pour into a small sauce pan or into a large steamer cup if you have something that will froth your milk.
    3. Add the cinnamon, ginger, scraped vanilla bean, and maple syrup or molasses. Let simmer on low for 5-10 min to really get the flavors combined.
    4. Pour warm milk into your coffee and top with fresh grated nutmeg.
HAZELNUT MILK
  1. Cover hazelnuts with water and let soak for 6-8 hours.
  2. Rinse hazelnuts and place in a blender with the vanilla, dates, pinch of salt, and water.
  3. Blend, blend, blend
  4. Pour nut milk into a nut milk bag and squeeze over a bowl until all the “milk” has been squeezed out.
  5. Pour hazelnut milk into a container. Will keep in fridge for about a week.**

Notes

  • Hazelnut milk will separate in the fridge. It’s natural! Simply shake it up before you use it!
  • If you happen to be on a Whole30 and you are having a mad craving for some gingerbread, you will need to omit the maple syrup or molasses. But you knew that already right!! Molasses is 100 percent NOT paleo or whole30, but it does give that distinct gingerbread flavor, that’s why it is written in the recipe.   Maple syrup is the next best thing….remember, gingerbread anything should be rich in flavor and spices!
