I’ve been hoarding this recipe away for several weeks. I was waiting for a rainy day, a literal rainy day. The rainy season has come. In Vancouver, that season lasts 9 bazillion months. Boooooooo! My misfortune is your gain because when the weather is crappy, I head straight to the kitchen for comfort. Today’s cup of comfort comes in the form of drinking chocolate.
Hooray, it’s cold season! I am sneezing, sniffling and my whole body is sore. The sore body isn’t unusual, I have a syndrome called fibromyalgia that means I’m often sore. The sneezing and sniffling, I attribute to the common cold. No stupid cold is going to keep me from posting to my blog. I decided to turn lemons into lemonade…hot lemonade.
This is the third post in my series of hot beverages for fall! I previously posted ‘The World’s Best Vegan Pumpkin Spice Latte’ and ‘The World’s Best Vegan Matcha Latte’. This is ‘The World’s Best Vegan Chai Latte’…of course! This recipe is a tiny bit more complicated than the previous recipes. I promise, it’s worth it! First of all, you must make my homemade cashew milk if you truly want this to be ‘The World’s Best Vegan Chai Latte’. Of course, you can use any milk you like in this recipe but I can’t promise you the same creamy results!
This is the second entry in my hot beverage series. I previously shared a recipe for ‘The World’s Best Vegan Pumpkin Spice Latte’. This week, were are going green with ‘The World’s Best Vegan Matcha Latte’. I have a confession. I hated matcha the first 10 times I tried it. I’m not sure when or why it “clicked” for me, but now I can’t get enough of it! If you haven’t had it before, you might want to ease yourself in to this recipe by using a smaller amount of matcha powder. Before you know it, you will be inhaling the stuff. Just kidding, don’t do that.
When I heard that Starbucks was releasing their famous Pumpkin Spice Latte early this year. I knew I had to get a jump on the seasonal beverages. I don’t typically buy flavoured lattes because they are typically loaded with stuff I don’t want to drink. Recently, people have been scandalized to find out that the Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks doesn’t actually contain pumpkin. Surprise!
A terrible thing has happened. I have run out of coffee. Don’t cry for me, I have a back-up plan.
Have you every tried putting coconut oil in your coffee? If you didn’t use a blender, you probably experienced an unpleasant oil-slick. Not good. Something magic happens when you put the coconut oil and coffee in the blender together. It turns in to a creamy, delicious beverage that could rival any $6 coffee house concoction. Give it a try.
