SWEET kittea …

Curb that sweet craving with this tasty tea recipe (Disclaimer: adorable kitty will not appear if you make this). It’s sweet. It’s spicy. It’s creamy. It’s warming. It’s grounding. It’s delicious. 

  • 1/2 tsp licorice root (I bought mine here. You may be able to find in health food stores as well, in bulk herb/tea sections.)
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon (The company I linked to above also sells sweet cinnamon chips which could be substituted for ground.)
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (Depending on the size of your mug, you may have to fill the rest of the mug with water so the herbs can steep in the liquid.)

Warm up almond milk/water on stovetop or in microwave. Place licorice root and cinnamon into a single cup tea strainer and pour the almond milk over the herbs. Cover and let steep for at least 10 minutes. Most of the cinnamon will sink to the bottom which makes for a very tasty ending, oooorrrr you could stir as you sip. Enjoy!

Additions if you want to mix it up: sprinkle of nutmeg; 1/4 tsp ginger; 1/4 tsp of pure vanilla extract.
