Your Homemade "London Fog"!
Anything you buy in a coffee shop can be replicated at home, saving you $5-$7 dollars a pop and supporting the building up of a Culinary Nutrition-focused pantry of goods! Here is my take on a homemade, dairy-free "London Fog"! (Dairy-Free) London Fog Yield: 1 serving (about 1.5 cups) Ingredients:
1.5 cups plain/unsweetened almond milk (or homemade almond milk!)
1 tbsp. collagen powder/peptides
2 tsp. coconut butter
1/2 tsp. alcohol-free vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. raw, unpasteurized honey (optional)
Pinch of pink Himalayan sea salt (or unrefined sea salt of choice)
1 tea bag organic, Earl Grey tea
Directions: 1. Combine all ingredients (except the tea bag) in a small saucepan and bring to low-medium heat, whisking the ingredients together as it warms. We want the heat hot enough to warm the ingredients, but not hot enough to bring them to a low boil. 2. Periodically stir the ingredients until they are hot, just short of a boil. 3.Pour into your favourite mug and add a teabag of organic Earl Grey tea. Let steep for as long as desired! Enjoy!
When purchasing herbal teas, I strive to always purchase an organically-sourced option for a cleaner source. I found this particular organic, fair-trade option at my local health food store here in Calgary. It is my first time trying out this particular brand, as it is new to me! Learn more about it, HERE!
