Ginger Spiced Latte
This recipe is so close to my heart because it is my Nani’s fave. My nani, mom, and her siblings have never tasted chai in their life, they grew up drinking this coffee. My nani’s has been unwell for a while now, she is in a long term care facility. Any time anyone visits they alway bring her his coffee. This recipe is an ode to her! They aren’t allowing visitors in anymore, because of what's going on, and it really breaks my heart for. I’m hoping this all passes soon.
Okay okay enough of the sadness, back to the recipe. I took my nani’s recipe and made it into a latte but you can also just make it just coffee. Please tag me @zheelicious when you make it, it will def make me smile!! Hope this makes you guys as happy as it makes my mani :)
Stay happy, stay hungry!
