Chai tea lattes, homemade creamer & a bonus!

The Super Bowl is infamous for the commercials, their halftime show, and obviously the football. On the contrary its known for probably anything but health conscious snacks. These types of snacks typically leave you feeling tired, bloated, and craving more salty and sweet foods.

Instead of reaching for processed foods that will only leave you craving more of them try one of these!Image

Chai Tea Lattes

1 Chai tea bag

4 oz hot water

4 oz homemade coffee creamer (recipe below)

Take and boil 4 oz of water, and place in a mug. Take the tea bag and steep in the water according to the instructions on your box. (Roughly 4-5 minutes) While the tea steeps gently warm up the creamer on low heat on the stove. Then press the water out of the tea bag (use spoons it will be hot!) so that you get the remaining goodness out of there.  Pour the coffee creamer into the mug and enjoy!

10 oz coconut or almond milk

3 pitted medjool dates

1 tsp vanilla

1 tbs pure maple syrup

dash of cinnamon to desired taste

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until the dates have been broken up completely. Pour the creamer over a strainer to get our any “pulp” so that you get a super smooth consistency. Place in an airtight container in the fridge and enjoy for the next 3 days!

And for a bonus…

Coconut Cacao Balls

These could easily be had for dessert or enjoy them whenever you want throughout the day especially if you need a little kick of energy (thank you cacao!).

1 Cup desiccated coconutImage
