    this is a nice recipe…i pimped it up a little by adding the spices you use for marsala chia to the coffee mix and let it steep for a while, then proceeded with the orginal recipe.. spices i used were cinnamon, cardamon (green), cloves, star anise, fennel seed and fresh grated ginger..

    is there a way without the gelatin? a good substitute? no eggs please. or agar or vegan gel and stuff. does adding fruit juice help?

      We didn’t try other way, for that reason we are not sure if it works with other ingredients.
