Gingerbread Chai Latte Recipe
Okay, so if Christmas had a specific flavor then this Gingerbread Chai Latte Recipe would be that flavor. This is my new favorite hot drink of the holiday season as all of the flavors just meld together perfectly and make you long for a snowy day, a good book, and an oversize fluffy blanket….and miraculously the kids take a trip to grandma’s before the snow hits.
Oh the joys of daydreams!
As a busy mom of 2 under 5 I don’t get the luxury of sipping a hot chai latte while cuddled under a big blanket….usually I’m fighting for that blanket that my son just “NEEDS” for the fort he’s making…even though he already has 3 other blankets stretched across the living room. So I usually concede and let him have my snuggly blanket since Miss Jellybean is typically clambering at my leg wanting to be picked up and put down at the same time….the life of an almost 1 year old.
But, I can make this Gingerbread Chai Latte recipe in a matter of minutes and have a sweet little escape to my daydream of snowy quiet and fluffy blankets. Wanna join me for a moment or two?
