In the Reboot Kitchen: Homemade Chai Tea

Homemade Chai Tea

I love this tea and find it a wonderful winter warmer! The first time I made it from scratch I was in the home of an Indian family whom I had met through my work in London and I fell in love. They offered me tea and asked if I was okay to have an Indian tea, ‘of course I was happy to have what they were having’ but when the tea maker didn’t come back for half an hour I was curious as to what on earth he had been up to. I then learn they didn’t just pour hot water onto a bag and stir in milk!

Freshmade NYC’s After School Snacks of the Week

Sunflower-Goji Cookies & Warm Milk Shake

With all this cold and blustery weather we are having, we decided to focus on “warming” foods this week.  Did you know that eating certain foods can help keep your body warm?  Check out some of our favorite “warming” foods and snacks that incorporate them!

After School Snack: Warming “Milk” Shake

Warm "Milk" Shake

Instead of hot chocolate, let your kids warm up to this warming “milk” shake when they are finished playing in the snow. The cardamom in this shake is refreshing to the mind and the body and also for treating respiratory infections such as cough and cold. It’s great for digestion and keeps the body warm.
