Another Egg Cream.

Was surprised to learn that my housemate, from around NYC where they originated, didn't know what an egg cream was. 

Cooksplained it to him, then set to making a slightly more traditional take than the rose perfumed one. 

For two:

- 2 c almond milk
- 2 Tbs cocoa powder
- 1 Tbs coconut oil
- 1 tsp grated orange peel
- pinch of cinnamon, ginger
- sweetener to taste (I used 1 packet of stevia)
- seltzer
- crushed ice (5-6 cubes' worth)

Blend together almond milk, cocoa powder, coconut oil, orange peel, cinnamon, ginger and sweetener, 1/2 the crushed ice.  Fill highball glasses with remaining ice, pour in blended ingredients, top with seltzer water, garnish with a sprinkle of cinnamon and a pretty arrangement of fruit, if desired.
