A deliciously spiced coffee which enhances the coffee drinking experience, and is therefore particularly welcome when you're aiming to reduce the calories in your daily diet. Because it has no milk, it has NO fat and, at 17 calories, it is super-low in calories. Compare that with a creamy cappuccino! Adapted from Australian chef flip shelton's 'green: modern vegetarian recipes', and posted for the post-ZWT Healthy for the Holidays Challenge! When I make this next time, I'm going to try it without the fennel seeds and with a tablespoon of orange juice.
