Chocolate Chai Latte

Fall and winter means time for lattes, coffee and tea.  I am not one to go to Starbucks everyday and get my “fix”, I actually make enjoy making my coffee drinks at home.  The only problem is, I seem to be missing out on the ever so popular Red Starbucks Cups. Today is an easy Chocolate Chai Latte made with zero sugar Almond Milk. INGREDIENTS Tazo Chocolate Chai Latte Concentrate Zero Sugar Almond Milk {plain or vanilla} Cinnamon This is seriously too easy… Heat 1 cup of almond milk {measuring depends on how much you want to make, this was for a large cup}, bring the almond milk to somewhat of a boil, but whisk until frothy.  Add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of the chocolate chai latte mix and continue to whisk together.  You want to continue whisking until both ingredients are “frothed” together.

Chocolate! and Giving Back?

I have got a treat for you.  Here’s the deal, about two months ago my hubby and I were on one of our “shopping for dinner nights” at Whole Foods {we love just heading in and shop for either some cheese and fruit or maybe some sushi, whatever hits us}  when I just happen to stumble upon  run for the chocolate aisle.
