I call this tasty drink ‘Charlie’s’ Chai named after my former staff photographer. Charlie’s face lit up when I offer to prepare a batch during a long day of shooting. Chai is a hot tea beverage that comes from India, deliciously sweet and spicy. Its rich flavor is a great substitute for coffee addicts trying to kick the habit! If you want to have a cup each morning, brew triple the batch and store in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to one week.
Nothing is more fragrant than homemade Indian food cooked with healthy spices! If you can’t find Garam Masala, substitute with your favorite curry powder.

Soup fights hunger because it’s filling and low in calories. This is the perfect summer/spring soup made in a blender.
