It’s going to be sad day when the holiday season passes us by… Thank goodness they make cookie cutters for every occasion though! Shew, I almost thought I was going to go through withdrawals. haha For this recipe I used Gingerbread Chai Tea bags (contents only) . I have a link posted below where you can order it through Amazon but I found mine at my local grocery store.
If you can’t find this particular tea, you could make your own blend of gingerbread. I put a recipe below for you. I was so excited when I found this tea at the store. I stood in the aisle sniffing the sealed tin can. Like you can really smell anything through tin. :) The side of the can reads; naturally caffeine-free rooibos, artfully adorned with flavorful sweet crisp apples, ginger and the traditional spicy depth of cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg and clove. Organic and Fair Trade Certified.
As soon as I got home with it, I peeled the seal off the can, opened it and took a DEEEEP inhale and about choked! I inhaled so strongly that sucked up loss tea granules that were floating around in the container, up through my nose. Uff-da! After that “hit”, I made myself a hot cup of tea. Delicious! That is when this recipe hit me. I love spur of the moment creations. I hope you do too!

One of the greatest joys when creating raw food recipes is experimenting with different ingredients… a practice that I highly encourage. Daily I get questions regarding substitutions. Of course we all might have different dietary needs and tastes which could necessitate altering a recipe. I love to share with you what I create for myself, my husband, friends and family. I spend a lot of time selecting the right ingredients with a particular goal in mind, looking to build a certain flavor and texture.
So as you experiment with substitutions, remember they are what they sound like, they are substitutes for the preferred item. Generally they are not going to behave, taste, or have the same texture as the suggested ingredient. Some may work, and others may not and I can’t promise what the results will be unless I’ve tried them myself. So have fun, don’t be afraid, and remember, substituting is how I discovered many of my unique dishes.
