Our celebrated Food Correspondent Maple Trout Lilli is back in town. She writes:


I came across this heavenly potion on the internet as a coffee/tea alternative and I’m hooked.  Morning, afternoon or evening, this somewhat spicy potion will not disappoint. Just add hot water to the following fine ingredients and you won’t be disappointed.  It’s wonderful in the morning, but also late afternoon for a quick pick-me-up…


1 Tablespoon Almond Butter
2 teaspoons maple syrup
2 teaspoons coconut oil
1/8th teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8th teaspoon ground cardamom
1/8th teaspoon ground cloves
1/8th teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
1 pinch sea salt
1 grind of black pepper
1 cup boiling water
Maple Sugar for garnish (optional but highly recommended)

Combine all ingredients in a powerful blender and blitz until smooth and frothy.   Top with a sprinkling of maple sugar.
