1 tsp cardamom
1/4 tsp anise
15 cracks black pepper
Pinch of nutmeg
2 tbsp Flora Organic MCT Oil
2 shots of espresso *


  • Add all ingredients except MCT Oil and espresso to a blender, and blend on high until frothy and well combined. Transfer to a small saucepan over medium-low heat and whisk until the milky mixture warms up to drinking temperature. Set aside.

Espresso can be substituted with ¼ cup drip coffee or ¼ cup black tea.
