Hot apple cider chai

The brisk north wind tells us it is time to pull out the toques, mittens and woollies. It also tells me that the time of year when I most enjoy my favourite beverage is fast approaching. If you take pleasure in a nice sweet, warm spicy chai as well as apple cider, you’re going to love this: Hot Apple Cider Chai.urmeric is an anti-inflammatory power house spice that supports liver and brain health. It is fat soluble and difficult to absorb which creates some challenges in using it as a health tonic. Golden milk is a good way to overcome some of these challenges. Create a paste by mixing 4 tbsp of organic dried turmeric, ½ teaspoon of organic black pepper with 4 tbsp of virgin coconut oil. This can be stored in a glass jar in the fridge for a little over a week.

This drink combines the warming whole spices of a traditional Chai with the sweet, comforting flavour of apple cider. It is a perfect drink to take the chill out on those cool winter days and nights! It is simple to make, wonderful for sharing, and absolutely delicious and healthy for the whole family!
