Warm Tea for the Queen #Vegan #SugarFree

To all the moms out there.... ðŸ’–( ^_^)o自自o(^_^ ) 💖

My mom is a HUGE fan of TEA æ—¦~~  

Especially when the weather is chilly brrrr....., she loves to cozy up to this warm cup of tea...

And oh so wonderful it would be if this tea nourished her inside out ! 💖

On that note, I would love to present this Cashew Quinoa Chai  made with warm and fuzzy love, to all moms who love tea !!!

Especially on a brr.. cold evening ! 
(While I sip on my warm Cocoa made using the same recipe :))

It's vegan, high protein, and full of bone supporting minerals (Great for post menopausal women !) and above all sustainable ENERGY !

So let's get started !

Cashew Quinoa Chai !

Serves: 1

  • 1/4 cup Quinoa soaked overnight.
  • 1/4 cup  Cashews (or any nuts you like) soaked overnight (2 hrs is enough for cashews).
  • 2 soaked apricots
  • Tea Bags / Tea powder / Raw Cacao powder: Ur preference.

1. Grind up the soaked cashews into cashew butter and keep aside.
2. Grind up the soaked quinoa in little water. 
3. Then transfer to an even cooking casserole with extra water (1/8 to 1/4 cup), to cook the quinoa paste. Add little ghee so it doesn't stick. 
Note: Add tea powder now, if using. Raw cacao powder can be added later. 
4. Blend the cashew paste with apricots plus their soaking water.
5. Keep stirring the Quinoa, till the water has cooked it through. About 5 mins. 
6. Transfer the warm and cooked quinoa + tea mixture into the cashew blend, and blend together.
7. Use water to thin out to desire consistency. I like it Thick :)
8. Strain out using a nut milk bag.
9. Stir with a cinnamon stick if u like aromatic cinnamon-iness !
10. Enjoi !

This Tea tasted really awesome !!!
