I made my favorite today, Chai Tea Latte. I’m a confessed addict of the Chai Tea Latte. My family can attest to it. In preschool last year, my 4 year old’s classroom did a Mother’s Day activity where the teachers asked the kids questions about their Moms. Aside from being 5 years old, 50 pounds (bless her) and my favorite tv show being commercials, my favorite drink was CHAI. Yes , my daughter knows me well. I was a little concerned she may respond with wine, as she did the previous year. It was awesome. (Can you hear the sarcasm?)
So, I use the slow cooker for this which makes it so simple. And, the bonus is that your house smells great the entire day. I will say, I had to make a special trip across the mountain to get the cardamom pods, they only sell the seeds in most stores. However, Whole Foods has them in their bulk, self-serve spice area.
I made my own sweetened condensed milk using Almond Milk for a dairy free Paleo Friendly treat. Here is the recipe.

Black Tea Bags = caffeine and delicious-ness
Use a red tea or decaf black tea for a decaffeinated version.
Strain the Tea
Add the sweetened condensed milk
Enjoy a delicious cup of tea.
For added sweetness add some coconut palm sugar or a splash of honey.
