If you’re like me, the liberal use of spices in food and beverages is one of the things you treasure about this time of year. My children seem to be spice lovers too. And this super-simple dairy-free smoothie is a treat that our whole family has been enjoying since autumn came to Scandinavia. It can be served warm or cold, so take your pick according to your local climate or preference!

1/4 tsp ground cardamom
A pinch of ground clove (or nutmeg if you prefer)
50 ml coconut cream (optional)
1/2 tbsp rice malt/maple syrup (optional)
Blitz all ingredients in a blender until smooth. Pour and serve, with an extra light sprinkling of spice if you like.
*For a warm smoothie option, use chopped bananas (not frozen). Gently heat milk in a small saucepan, adding spices and syrup (if desired). Pour milk mix into blender over bananas and blitz until smooth. Pour and enjoy immediately.
