Lazy Iced Latte

Lazy Iced Latte

It’s summer. We’re still pretty much locked down. I’m back to my natural state of NOT BEING A MORNING PERSON. This is my lazy iced latte. It takes about a minute to make.

An easy way to get your morning caffine: a lazy, iced latte with almond milk.

Course: Breakfast, Drinks
Cuisine: Latte
Keyword: Almond Milk, Latte, Stevia
Servings: 1 person
Author: Jessica Gray Schipp | #AllergicToEverything
Ingredients
  • 1-2 tsp instant coffee
  • 1-2 scoops stevia extract powder or 4 drops liquid, or sweetener of choice
  • 1 inch hot water
  • ice enough to fill your glass
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk or any milk
  • 1 splash or dash vanilla or cinnamon optional
  • 1 splash half and half optional, if you're feeling indulgent
Instructions
  1. Get out a tall glass. Add the instant coffee and stevia. Pour about an inch of hot water into the glass. Mix with a knife if your glass is tall and skinny 😉
  2. Add enough ice to the mixture to fill the glass. Pour over milk of choice until glass is full. Stir it up.
  3. Add a splash of half and half or vanilla or cinnamon to jazz it up if you like!
  4. Move to the couch.
  5. Drink.
  6. Wake up.
  7. Yoga?
Recipe Notes

Adding a splash of half and half gives this quick latte recipe a rich feel.  Same thing with flavorings – vanilla, cinnamon, ginger – add whatever you like.  

If you are going to do yoga, btw – this is my current fav. Julia Marie will kick your ass but it feels good. I’m doing this 30 day challenge for the second time and it’s still A CHALLENGE. Exercise is definitely part of staying sane these days.

Haldi Pani (Turmeric Water)

Haldi Pani (Turmeric Water)

I was on a Zoom with my childhood friend’s soon-to-be-hubby and he suggested a couple of recipes. He owns an ayurvedic catering company in LA and I’m constantly battling inflammation with my autoimmune issues. I have found Turmeric, also known as Haldi, to make a difference in my diet. It’s Sunday, so I thought, why not. Haldi Pani, Turmeric Water.

The trick, JJ says, it is to drink it warm. Not hot, warm.

It is day number I don’t know what of the lockdown. And it has been eons since I put up a new recipe. So, I decided to start simple. Turmeric Ginger Matcha Latte. I’m drinking one right now. I drink one most days for the mid-day caffeine boost.

#AllergicToEverything Turmeric Ginger Matcha Latte – in the time of Corona, or not.  A midday pick-you-up.  

Course: Breakfast, Drinks
Cuisine: Comfort Food
Servings: 1 person
Author: Jessica Gray Schipp | #AllergicToEverything
Ingredients
  • 1 mug-full Almond Milk I use unsweetened vanilla, add a splash of vanilla if you only have plain almond milk on hand
  • 1 tsp Matcha Powder
  • 2 tiny scoops Stevia or sweetener of your choice
  • 3 good shakes Turmeric ground
  • 3 good shakes Ginger ground
  • 2 grids Black Pepper to activate the turmeric
  • 1 quick grind Himalayan Pink Salt or a tiny pinch of any sea salt
Instructions
  1. Fill up your mug with Almond Milk (or part almond milk, part water depending on how rich you want it), pour it into a small saucepan over low-medium heat. 

  2. Add matcha, stevia, turmeric, ginger, black pepper, and salt to the saucepan and whisk.  Stir occasionally, until the liquid is just starting to bubble and the spices appear to have become one with the milk.  

  3. Pour it back into your mug – while it cools to drinking temperature, give the pan and whisk a quick wash so you don’t have to do it later.  

Recipe Notes

Use any kind of milk you want.  

Leave out the spices if you don’t have them.  

Take some time today to take care of you. 

It’s been so long, I couldn’t even remember how to put in the damn recipe.

And I am sorry my site is so fucking slow. I am working on it. Bless you, if you waited out the load time. Turmeric Ginger Matcha Lattes are always worth the wait.
