What is in your cup?

coffee with almond milk and cinnamonIt has been a dizzying week, with volunteer projects, catching a cold, and trying to catch up after vacation. In the midst of it all I came up with an ingenious drink that not only curbs my latte craving, but is mostly healthy, and super addictive! I call it my “Cafe au Horchata”

Here’s the nitty gritty:


  • 8 oz Almond Milk (I use unsweetened So Delicious)
  • 1/2 stick of cinnamon (crunched into the cup by hand) you can read about the type of cinnamon I used here.
  • 1 Tbs of Honey
  • 1 Keurig K-cup (I used Starbucks Holiday because it was on sale)


  1. Make your k-cup on the “teacup” setting into your 16 oz go mug
  2. Heat up your almond milk
  3. Drizzle your honey into the coffee
  4. Crunch half of your cinnamon stick into the cup
  5. Add your heated almond milk and stir
  6. You’re good to go!


One thought on “What is in your cup?

  1. I made this! I don’t know where you came up with this idea, but it’s brilliant! I modified it a bit because I didn’t want any caffeine plus I don’t have a Keurig. Instead of the coffee, I brewed a cup of decaf Earl Grey tea. I think next time I’ll crumble the cinnamon into a tea cozy and use that to steep it into the milk. Soooo yummy! And thanks for posting that link about real cinnamon…who knew?!
