A refreshing summer drink with a lovely spicy taste.
Ingredients (makes one litre)
3 chai Rooibos or chai tea, tea bags
(if you can’t find chai tea then use normal tea and put 5 cloves, half a teaspoon crushed black pepper, 1 tablespoon sliced ginger, 1 teaspoon cardamom and 2 sticks of cinnamon – you can strain these in the end)
4 tablespoons erythritol or Sweetener of your choice. Please note some are sweeter than others so taste it to make sure it to your desired sweetness.
Quarter cup of hot water
1 litre of sparkling water
1 tablespoon ceylon cinnamon
1 half orange sliced
5 minutes to prepare
8 hours to infuse
Place the ice tea teabags in a jar or normal tea plus your spices. Add the Sweetener and cinnamon. Pour in the hot water and stir to dissolve. Then pour in the sparkling water and add the sliced orange. Cover it firmly so no air can escape and infuse it for 8 hours in the fridge. Remove from the fridge – strain and enjoy 🙂

If you’re like me and do not drink coffee then you would know how left out you feel when everyone is drinking their frothy cappuccinos and getting that much needed boost for the day. Red Cappuccino is nice but sometimes you need that extra kick! This green cappuccino is loaded with antioxidants and the jasmine lends a very nice taste to it. NB: To add a green colour to it: Use matcha powder instead of the green tea teabag.

Method (10 Minute):
Pour milk into a pan/pot, add the green tea bag, sweetener of your choice and the 1 tsp cinnammon. Bring to a gentle boil and once the milk starts developing froth pour into a mug. Sprinkle with the remaining cinnamon and enjoy.
