Chai Mocha Latte On Steven and Chris

 

What super fun I had on the show with Steven and Chris, and also loved that the Meghan Inc. core team, Jaclyn and Maeve, were front and centre in the audience and got loads of camera time!

I kicked it on the show, sharing some of my favourite fall sippable favourites from my book. This interview was so fun. The guys LOVED my book and you can tell (that's why they are giving away a copy!)

If you watch the segment and enjoyed it, please let our friends at Steven and Chris know and tweet it up!

Steven, Chris and I had so much fun that I will be heading back into the studio to tape two more segments before I take off on my four-month pretirement. For those of you who watched the segment, here are the three recipes we used from UnDiet.  And check out the full segment below!

Freshly Blended Nut or Seed Milk

Total time: 

Yield: 3

Few people realize how easy it is to make your own nut or seed milk. This is a great alternative to dairy or soy milk, and is way cheaper and more delicious than buying it at the store. Plus, you get to use my all time fave kitchen tool: the nut sack. Freeze what you won’t use straight away in half-quart mason jars for later use or in ice-cube trays for smoothies. Get fancy-pants and add raw cocoa to the mix, starting with ¼ cup and working your way up until desired chocolaty-ness is achieved. You’re about to have the best chocolate-milk adventure ever.

Ingredients
  • 1 cup (250 mL) of nuts and seeds of choice (almond, cashew, hemp, hazelnut, sunflower, or sesame, or a combination of a few)
  • 3 cups (750 mL) water
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) vanilla extract, or the center of one vanilla bean
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) Irish moss (optional, to thicken)
  • raw honey, coconut nectar or maple syrup to taste

Make It Like So
  1. Soak nuts and seeds in cold water for 2 to 6 hours, or overnight.
  2. Drain and rinse.
  3. Place nuts and seeds in blender with water and mix until smooth.
  4. Pour mixture through strainer or nut sack and allow milk to drain into bowl. If using a strainer, use a spoon to help press milk through.
  5. Rinse blender container and return milk to it. Add vanilla, Irish moss, and raw honey, coconut nectar or maple syrup, and blend until smooth
  6. Keep refrigerated for 3–4 days and frozen for 2-3 months.

 

Herbal Mocha Latte

Prep time: 

Cook time: 

Total time: 

Yield: 2

This simple recipe can be used with any nut or seed milk of your choice and any herbal tea blend that is currently rocking your world. A great substitute to your usual caffeinated latte.

Ingredients
  • 3 cups yogi tea or other herbal tea blend
  • ½ cup  nut or seed milk
  • 1 tsp  vanilla extract or 2 tsp (10 mL) vanilla bean
  • 1 tbsp hemp seeds
  • 2–3 tbsp unprocessed raw cocoa
  • 5 organic fair trade coffee beans
  • raw honey to taste

Make It Like So
  1. Place tea, nut/seed milk, vanilla, cocoa, coffee beans, Irish moss, and raw honey in a blender and mix.
  2. Pour mix through strainer to remove any coffee bean grounds.
  3. Sip, sip away while writing your farewell letter to your formerly fave coffee shop.

Notes
If your blender has a gradual speed increase and vents steam, you can do this with warm tea. If not, blend together at a cooler temperature and then heat on the stove- otherwise the steam could cause the blender lid to burst off).

    Okay that Yogi Tea rocked my WORLD. I couldn't believe how delicious and easy it was to make. I'm always looking for new ways to spice up my tea in tea bags, but it was much more satisfying to be able to control that myself and make it however strong I wanted it. So yummy!
