DECEMBER FAVORITES: CHAI LATTÉ’S & CHRISTMAS SHOPPING IN LONDON

I open my agenda and start writing down my daily to-do list. Ok, December 22nd. Wait .. what ?!

Time flies! Christmas is just around the corner and that’s weird but true for me. The average temperature here in Sydney is 30 degrees right now. So no, I haven’t quite got the Christmas spirit down yet. However, whilst enjoying a Chai Latte I occasionally still dream away about cold Christmassy Europe. Despite the summer vibes here, I’m seriously addicted to this spicy Indian drink with hot milk!

WHAT IS CHAI LATTE?

Chai Latte is made with Indian chai tea spices, cinnamon and hot milk. I prefer to drink this with plant based milk such as almond milk or coconut milk, but normal milk will do just fine too!

 

IS IT HEALTHY?

For the record. Yes and no. No, that makes things more clear. Ok, enough with the jokes. The Chai Latte has been a real trend for a while now. Some claim it’s the healthy version of a Latte or Cappuccino. Yes, a hot plant based milk and herbs mixture is naturally very healthy! Chai tea contains a lot of neutralizing antioxidants for the body. In traditional Indian Ayurvedic medicine, these spices are used as medicinal herbs. A Chai Latte mix however, contains quite a few teaspoons of sugar in many cafés. Sooo..it can be seen as healthy. But it remains a sweet treat which you should, obviously, occasionally still enjoy!

DIY HOMEMADE CHAI LATTÉ

Such a mix sounds pretty simple. Can I make it myself? Sure you can! Chai spices are now for sale in almost every tea shop and with some hot milk, you’ll make yourself a hot Chai Latté in no-time after a winterly walk on the beach.

 

CHALO CHAI LATTÉ

Cardamom, Vanilla, Lemongrass & Masala. With 4 funky flavors, the vegan Chai Latte mixes of CHALO are my favorite. Spicy yet sweet, soft yet strong! You have to try this tasty winter cocktail.

CHRISTMAS SHOPPING IN LONDON

Thè place in Europe to go Christmas shopping! Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park and mulled wine at London Eye, the whole city is in Christmas spirit. Oxford Street and Covent Garden are decorated like a fairyland starting from November and the windows of the shops are just gorgeous. Yep, no hesitations about that one.
