Ginger Chai

From the Vitality Food Feature ‘CULINARY SPICES THAT HEAL‘. My all-time favourite fall and winter beverage, this comforting drink is anti-inflammatory and calming without making you drowsy. I recommend it to alleviate brain fog or an upset tummy. (Makes 8 cups)

Ingredients

  • 4 cups unsweetened non-dairy milk (almond, coconut, hemp, sesame)
  • 4 cups ginger root tea (2 inches grated ginger)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1/2 tsp stevia whole-leaf powder (or 1/4 tsp stevia extract or 1-2 tsp unpasteurized, liquid honey
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp cloves, powdered

1) Make ginger root tea by grating 2 inches of ginger into a mason jar. Top with 4 cups of boiling water and steep for 2-8 hours to desired strength.

2) Combine all ingredients in a 3 quart (3 L) saucepan and simmer for 5 minutes. Serve hot.
