Vitamix Chai 8/15 '19
Oops, I forgot to take a picture before enjoying.
1 red rose black tea bag
1/4 teaspoon fresh-grated nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon fresh-grated ginger
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 scant handful almonds
A few raisins
1 teaspoon brown sugar
Bring a mug's worth of water, less an inch or so, to a boil. Steep the tea for a few minutes.
Pour the tea and everything else into the vitamix.
Run a smoothie cycle.
Pour into mug.
Tastes as good as a "chai latte" and who the hell knows how much sugar (and perhaps fat?) is in those.
If you haven't worked with whole nutmegs before, the "small holes" side of any grater can handle it just fine. Ditto grating fresh ginger.
Cinnamon and ginger, nutmeg and cloves
That's what gave me this shiny red nose.
