*Brrr* It’s time to ward off winter chills with a recipe for toasty tea.

Prescribe Nutrition is here to help us through the holidays. Ruby Chai is an aromatic and healthy alternative to sugary, seasonal beverages like hot cocoa and eggnog. Cloves, cardamom and coconut milk take center stage and awaken your senses. It’s utterly easy to make {hooray!} :: simply place the ingredients in a pot to simmer, steep and enjoy.

We can already picture ourselves sipping on mugs of sweet ‘n’ spicy chai post-sledding or serving it at our next holiday cookie party.
