How to Make Your Own Yummy Chai

spiced-chai-teaIf you love chai tea as much as I do then you have probably wondered how to make it…How to:

Boil 1 cup of water, adding one teaspoon of loose black tea (I use South Indian Orange Pekoe), 2 spoons sugar (organic cane), and grate 1 inch of ginger into boiling water.

After mix has boiled for 1-2 minutes and ginger is cooked, add 1 cup milk (whole organic milk is best, 2% and 1% are missing the good fats). Add 3 crushed cardamom and 2 crushed cloves, some saffron if it is available (all crushed in a mortar and pestle). Wait for entire liquid to boil 3 times, and then strain. Yum yum!

Just Say No to the Frappunccino! (I got your coffee shake right here!)

Hilarious Photo! See more creative food photos HERE

I usually stick to black coffee to get my ‘fix’. Occasionally however, I will look at happy ‘lil Starbucks goers slurping up oh-so-yummy-looking Frappuccinos and feel deprived! They say that necessity is the mother of invention and since I feel like drinking something coffee flavoured, chocolately, and frothy is a necessity (all while eating healthfully of course!) I invented this shake (along with the help of co-chef extraordinaire Brian Aganad woot woot!)

Grab your blender and buckle up for a taste bud adventure!
