Why is this so good for you?

This tea has amazing benefits for your health. You have probably heard of Chai Tea which really taste the same as this tea, but it is usually full of fillers instead of good healthy ingredients. I think you will find this recipe satisfying to the taste buds and know you are enriching your immune system at the same time.

What does each ingredient do?

Black pepper is a blood purifier, cardamom is for the colon (gas), cloves are for the nervous system and cinnamon for the bones.

Ginger has a delicious taste and is helpful when suffering from a cold, recovering from the flu or for general physical weakness.

The milk aids in the easy assimilation of the spices and avoids irritation to the colon. The black tea creates a synergy for all of the ingredients.

How to prepare:

Ingredients you will need for one cup: ( you may want to make more than one)

 

1 Cup Filtered water
3 Whole Cloves
6   Whole Black Peppercorns
4 Whole Cardamon Pods
1/2 Stick Cinnamon
A sliver of ginger, or tsp. ginger root

After it comes to a boil, bring to a simmer for 20 minutes. 
Add 1/4 tsp. of black tea and stir. Let steep for 2 minutes.
Add 1/2 cup of almond milk and bring to just about a boil and remove from heat.
Pour into a strainer. Serve with honey if you like

Mix after putting milk in until just before a boiling point

Why the links to these herbs?

For our family, I want the best! I don’t like what I am finding in the shelf life of herbs and spices in our local grocery store and frankly, they don’t always care that I prefer fresh. So we decided to start looking for herbs and spices and teas in a different place which leads me to the above company. They offer information and are extremely helpful besides offering 100% guaranteed money back. PLUS free shipping if you order $75 or more. PLUS…you help us in our ranch ministry for troubled youth.

All in all, you will be one happy camper!

I hope you like your traditional yogi tea!

Love deeper, talk sweeter,

Who can resist a yummy bread with a bit of sweetness? I sure can’t! The banana and pumpkin together is just an amazing flavor with the added spices and of course, the chocolate chips just make eating this bread any time of the day a pick- me- upper! It’s not just an ordinary banana bread or pumpkin bread. The spices especially the ginger gives this bread a pop you will love! To add to your taste buds make yourself a cup of the Creamy Pumpkin tea just setting your day up to be full of spice and everything nice. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Ingredients: 3 cups flour 2 tsp baking soda ½ tsp baking powder (or use ¼ tsp baking soda, ¼ tsp of cream of tartar) 1 tsp salt 2 tsp cinnamon 1/4 tsp clove 3/4 tsp ginger 1/4 tsp fresh grated nutmeg 1 cup sugar 1/2 cup brown sugar 2/3 cup olive oil 3 eggs 1 can pumpkin, canned (I used almost all of the can except 1/4 cup to use in another recipe) 2 ripe bananas 1 cup chocolate chips 1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans Directions: In mixer bowl, cream sugars, oil, eggs, bananas, and pumpkin until nice and smooth. Add one cup at a time of the flour mixture in your baking soda, powder, salt, and spices. Mix well. Fold in your chocolate chips and nuts. In 2 PREPARED glass loaf pans, divide your batter between prepared pans. Bake about 45-55 minutes. I had to put a foil over the top after 45 minutes so it wouldn’t get too brown. I love my ALEXA to help me with the time. She is one big helper in the kitchen. When done, allow cooling for 5 minutes before placing on cooling rack. Yeah right…I dug right in and ate 3 slices….too yummy to wait!!! Serve on a sweet plate if you’re entertaining. Just makes it look awesome! Banana Pumpkin Bread Hope you enjoy it too!
