I love this quote, it is so true the more organized I am on Sunday the better week I have. It is a great day to reflect, plan, and thank the good Lord for the beautiful life we have been blessed with. Remember how I mentioned the other day my new found love for Aromas Coffee Bar and their skinny vanilla chai tea? Since I only go to Charles City twice a week I had been experimenting with different kinds of chai tea bags and found nothing that worked.  🙁  So, I did what every 30's something woman would do...scoured Pinterest! I found quite a few recipes, but none that I loved.  This weekend I concocted my own skinny vanilla chai tea!!! It comes nowhere near to Aaromas, but it is probably as close as I will get at home.  It made a large Tupperware full and will probably last a few weeks, well maybe, all four of us have really been loving it!  The recipe that I came up with is at the bottom of this post.

The mixture looks like this, you can run it through a food processor until it is a fine powder.

A little game of UNO and some more skinny vanilla chai tea after supper!

SCHMITT'S SKINNY VANILLA CHAI TEA

- 1 Cup Non Dairy Creamer

- 1 Cup Non Dairy Vanilla Creamer

-1 Cup Non Dairy Powdered Milk

- 1 1/2 Cups Instant Tea, unsweetened

- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

- 2 teaspoons ground ginger

- 1 teaspoon ground cloves

- 1 teaspoon nutmeg

-1 teaspoon all spice

- 1 teaspoon of cardamom

- 3/4 cup of sugar

Mix all powdered ingredients together in a Tupperware container.  You will add 2 Tablespoons to 8 oz. of water or hot milk.  To make this skinny you will need to use skim milk or almond milk.  I like to heat the almond milk or milk to 145 degrees.  That makes the perfect drink for our family!  Next time I am going to experiment with less sugar and I am going to keep track of how many drinks this mixture makes. I am guessing it will last at least a couple of weeks in a tightly stored container.  It would make a great gift to give someone in a pint jar with the directions to make a nice cup!

Do you like to make things homemade?

Have you ever made homemade do it yourself gifts?
