Today we present our Cricket Flour and Condensed Milk Boozy Coffee. Rich, Indulgent and perfect a perfect treat our edible insects are the perfect addition to this classic cocktail. Crickets are not only delicious they are also packed full of high quality nutrients. Crickets are an excellent source of protein, fibre, Omegas 3&6, iron, calcium, Vit B12 plus many more micronutrients. This will elevate the nutritional good stuff in any plant-based dish.

That’s not all. The nutrients in edible insects are completely sustainable. Insects require a fraction of the land, resources and energy compared to traditional livestock. However, you get the same nutritional benefits.

Our favourite thing about this dish is it’s so simple and very quick. So making healthier choices with a busy schedule even easier. We think this is a dish for two, but hey who’s judging? You can eat the whole lot, completely guilt free. Or keep some for lunch the next day.

Chicory has been added to coffee across Europe and the USA for years, originally as a bulking agent when coffee supplies were scarce during the world wars. Nowadays, it’s used to give coffee a chocolatey edge and is particularly popular in Italy and New Orleans. This recipe attempts to reproduce the flavour, only using insects. The nuttiness of the cricket flour paired with the sweetness of the condensed milk makes this boozy coffee and excellent digestif.
