Today’s tea: Vanilla Chai! Chai originated in India, and usually contain lots of spices like cinnamon, cardamom, allspice, cloves, nutmeg, etc. But today I wanted to spice it up a bit by adding vanilla! Again, a super easy recipe, and really nice to warm you up on a snowy day, which today just so happens to be! Here it is:

Makes 1 serving
1 ½ cups milk of your choice
1-2 bags of your favorite chai tea
2 tsp of vanilla extract, or to taste.

1) warm milk on the stove. Again, you want it to be steamed, not boiled, and be careful to avoid scum buildup. Pour into mug.
2) place teabags in mug and steep for 5-7 minutes. Remove tea bags.
3) add vanilla extract and stir thoroughly.

And it’s THAT easy!!! This recipe is super quick, warms you right to the core with all the chai spices, and is really yummy. Enjoy!

Important news!

I feel like I’ve talked about this on this blog before, but I have been trying to make as many substitutions in my diet to be as plant-based as possible for quite awhile now. I buy almond milk and use it in things like oatmeal and smoothies, but in all this time, I’ve always bought skim milk as well. I drink a lot of tea (Earl Grey) with milk and for some reason, I cannot seem to enjoy the taste of almond milk with my tea. I also use the skim milk randomly in other things, like hot chocolate or mashed potatoes. Today, I decided to buy some soy milk, because I figured it might be better for things like tea (and mashed potatoes, etc.). I bought just regular unsweetened soy milk and I just used it in tea and it was great! I could hardly tell the difference, and now I don’t need to buy skim milk at all anymore.
