    One of the most useful of spices for both sweet and savoury


  1. Soak the dates, cashews, apricots and mixed spice in the brandy overnight.

  2. The next day, tip the mixture into a blender and add the seeds from the vanilla pod and the almond milk. Blitz until smooth, then pour into eight tall glasses (use a sieve, if you like) with ice and grate some nutmeg on top.

This went down incredibly well on a girls Christmas night. I wish I'd made more!
