Chai Latte Dip
How do you get through your morning? Are you so addicted to coffee that you need a few pots before you leave the house and still require a stop at Starbucks on your commute?
I definitely need caffeine in the morning but I drink iced tea instead of hot coffee.Yes, this is completely foreign to everyone in my family who collectively drink a 55-gallon drum of the stuff every morning, but it’s hot out here in the desert!
Regardless of how I get my caffeine fix, I still have to have it in the morning to get moving. This means that sometimes I hit the coffee house on my way to hot yoga but I skip the coffee and get a shaken iced tea with no extra water. If its cold outside, I might opt for a hot tea or even a Chai Latte!
I used to get quite a few Chai Lattes from a particular coffee shop until I found out how much sugar is in those babies! No thanks, I’ll stick with my homemade version and save some calories and moolah.

[…] For any fruit board, I tend to add a fun dip or spread as a fun pairing. In this case, it was another opportunity to create an on-theme pun with “Under his Chai (Latte) Dip” (a play on “under his eye,” another one of the show’s popular phrases). You can use this recipe for a Chai Latte dip. […]
