Time to Mellow Out, acrylic painting by Alicia Bay Laurel, 2005
One teabag Yogi Tea Classic Indian Spice Caffeine-Free Tea
1 cup boiling water
2 tablespoons unflavored, unsweetened protein powder (any type, organic is best)
1/2 cup unflavored, unsweetened vegan or dairy milk
A few drops of stevia glycerite
a pinch of cinnamon
In a tall, inert (glass, ceramic) container, infuse the teabag in the boiling water for 15 minutes, so that the tea is strong, then remove the teabag. Add milk and protein powder and blend with a stick blender under smooth and frothy. Taste test; if you’d like it sweeter, stir in a few drops of stevia glycerite. Pour into a beautiful mug or cup and dust the top with the cinnamon.
