An Easy Recipe

baby chai, originally uploaded by hobocampcrafts.

So although the weather doesn't seem to be as bad as it was last year so far, when we go out walking it gets pretty frosty. The other day after our walk, I made myself a chai to warm my bones. I used liquid mix from Oregon Chai mixed with soy milk.

For Hazel's Baby Chai:

I warmed about 1 c. of organic whole milk (use whatever milk you'd like)

a sprinkle of cinnamon

1/4 tsp of agave nectar

Then frothed the milk with my fantastic Ikea $1.99 milk frother. Next time I might opt out on the agave nectar, because she seemed to enjoy it a little too much. Hazel doesn't get many sweets in our house. This is the perfect warm-your-bones treat and she totally loved it!

sounds delish! i bet my little one would love that - she loves any sort of warm beverage, even just plain white milk with the chill taken off of it! it also pleases her to no end when she can use one of my mugs, i know she feels grown up...

Hazel luckily for me only had milk and no actual chai mix. I say lucky for me b/c she might be bouncing off the walls if she had! lol
