My thing these days is tea. I drink it every day, usually with a bit of honey. I actually blame one of my characters for my tea obsession. Funny how that goes.
Before tea though, my thing used to be lattes, and I would drink one of those every day. Creamy goodness.
I give you now, THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS.
- 1.5 c whole milk (not skim or 1% or 2%. WHOLE MILK WITH THE FAT. Yes it’s going to be a thousand calories but yes it’s going to be worth it)
- 2 T hot chocolate powder (Cocoa Camino or similar quality. Keep your filthy Nesquik away from me)
- 2 T coconut milk (the solid type from a can, not liquid)
- 1 chai teabag
Put the teabag in the bottom of your oversize mug. Drop the dollop of coconut milk on top of it so it stays at the bottom. Add the hot chocolate powder and then fill the mug with steamed milk. DO NOT STIR. Walk away for five minutes and let it find its own path to oneness. When you return, the coconut milk should have melted into the rest of the liquid. Now you can give it a bit of a stir if it needs it. Leave the tea bag in the drink.
