spiced coffee

From the December 2011 issue of Health Magazine

Goes perfectly with these scones http://www.recipegirl.com/2011/10/27/starbucks-pumpkin-scones/ which can easily be made vegan by making the appropriate substitutions (I use coconut milk instead of the cream)

* Serves 4-6
** mix 10 T ground coffee with 1 t cinnamon and 1/4 t nutmeg in coffee filter

brew with 6 cups water

in a glass measuring cup
mix 1/2c milk (I used 1/4 cup coconut milk "egg"nog and 1/4 cup rice milk) with 3 T agave nectar and 1/8 t unsweetened cocoa powder
heat

pour coffee into your favorite mug leaving room for the sweet mixture
add the milk to taste

* If you have 6 people who want a small serving of coffee with a small amount of sweet milk, this will serve all 6.  In the case of my husband and me, it made a large to go cup for him with a splash of milk and 2 large mugs for me with lots of milk. I think a 4-person serving is probably more realistic.

**if you crunched up a cinnamon stick course and grated a whole nutmeg, you could adapt this for a french press.
