"Better Than Starbucks Chocolate Chai Tea Latte

I’m not much of a coffee drinker, but I do enjoy hot tea and the occasional latte.

Recently I tried Starbucks new Chocolate Chai Tea Latte for the first time. It was tasty, but I know it had corn syrup and other not so great for you ingredients. A friend shared a homemade version with me (thanks Carina! ūüôā ), and I adapted it to use coconut milk and sucanat. I think the flavor’s even better, and it’s simple to make, not to mention easier on the budget!

I love holiday baking!

I have a weakness for sweets, especially homemade goodies, and over the years, I’ve adapted many old favorites (like Nanny’s Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cake) to use healthier ingredients.

Diana Bauman from My Humble Kitchen is releasing her brand new book, Nourishing Cookies for a Healthy Holiday: 10 Naturally Sweetened Holiday Cookie Recipes today, just in time for holiday baking! (If you purchased The Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle earlier this month, then you received a pre-release copy of this book!)

It only has seven ingredients, and takes literally minutes to make. [Read more…]
