Have some organic cinnamon bark lying around from your last Hot Chocolate Experience? Here are a couple ways to make the most of it:
Add cinnamon to your coffee
Cut cinnamon sticks into the same size as your coffee beans. Grind together & prepare as usual in your coffee maker. If you don't have a coffee grinder at home, try this super easy iced cinnamon coffee as recommended by Starbucks.

Rim your margaritas with cinnamon sugar
Grind cinnamon in a spice grinder. Add 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon to a 1/4 cup of sugar, and mix until combined. Rub a lime wedge around the rims of your glasses and then dip into the cinnamon sugar mix. Pairs well with any citrus based drinks, such as the mojito or orange flavour bombs from Our Cocktail Experience.

Make a peanut butter banana cinnamon smoothie
Add skim milk, peanut butter, sliced bananas, ground cinnamon & honey to a blender. Blitz until smooth, and blend once again with some ice cubes. Sprinkle extra cinnamon on top if desired. Check out measurements & instructions here.

Prepare an anti-acne face mask
Mix 3 tablespoons of honey & 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon together until it forms a thick paste. Apply to your face and leave for about 10 minutes, then wash it off and pat your skin dry. Cinnamon stops the acne-causing bacteria, and honey reduces redness. When using organic ingredients (like cinnamon from our Hot Chocolate Experience, and honey from our Grazing Experience), chances of the mask working are even higher.

Get relief from a cough or cold
Mix honey & cinnamon together to form a paste. Have a spoonful of it a couple times a day to relieve yourself from cold & cough symptoms. Cinnamon & honey are both antibacterial & anti-inflammatory, making them a powerful duo to ward off your illness.
