Preparation

  1. Add coffee granules (or brewed coffee if substituting), hot water, cinnamon, vanilla, ginger, and pumpkin puree to a blender and blend together on high until smooth and frothy.
  2. Add agave nectar and frozen spinach and coconut milk and blend until smooth and frothy. Add the ice cubes and blend on highest setting until smooth and frothy.Taste! Add extra sweetener if necessary and blend until smooth.
  3. Pour into 1 huge glass or 2 normal cups.The drink(s) will be warm but not hot. If you want this drink very cold, add two ice cubes to each serving.
  4. Whether you choose to serve this drink warm or cold, I recommend that you garnish the naturally occurring foam on the top of the drink with a drizzle of coconut milk and a dash of cinnamon if desired.
