Festive Cinnamon Warmer

This is an indulgent, creamy drink to sip on during the festive season! With hints of ginger and nutmeg, the predominant flavours are coconut and cinnamon – and they work beautifully together. I even added a little cocoa powder which offer some colour as well as a tiny nod to chocolate. I enhanced it with a little collagen powder to increase the protein, but that is entirely optional. Use as much natural sweetener as you need, but one tablespoon of my favourite one worked perfectly for me. Merry Christmas! PS: No judgement here if you decide to ‘optimise’ this drink with a tot of Brandy!
