When I lived in Taiwan I learned to love "chunky" drinks: Boba drinks with tapioca of various sizes. Mung and azuki bean and barley (?) drinks. Milk tea with globs of gelatin. All sorts of drinks with unknown chewy things in them (and, of course, plenty of sugar)! Taiwan had such a variety of interesting drinks!
So this morning I wanted some chai tea for breakfast, and I thought...I wonder what it would be like with some chia seeds?
Turns out it was DELICIOUS. And wonderfully nostalgic. My recipe:
- 8 fl oz hot chai (Bigelow Spiced Decaf)
- 1 Tbsp chia seeds
- .5 Tbsp coconut butter (for a touch of sweet and richness)
