iced vegan chai latte

iced vegan chai latte

Apparently mother nature wants to keep us at home. We’ve received her message loud and clear. Just this weekend, Los Angeles turned into a walk-in sauna with temperatures reaching a blistering 121°F/50°C in Woodland Hills. Even if we wanted to step outside during this record-breaking heatwave (we didn’t), we would need hi-tech space suits to keep our skin from spontaneously bursting into flames. And if these weren’t enough reasons to keep us inside, enter the recent wildfires spreading across the state of California, coating our blue skies in an unhealthy orange haze, complete with smoky air and falling ashes. Just when you thought 2020 couldn’t dip any lower… but let’s all take a deep breath. The Husbands are here to help, and today we are sharing something that will ease your mind and cool your scorched soul. Please welcome your new summer savior… Iced Vegan Chai Latte.

It’s official. Summer has finally decided to make her grand appearance in Los Angeles. We are not complaining that she hit the snooze button through the entire month of June, leaving us with thirty days of grey clouds and cool breezes. But July is a different story. Let’s just say that the high temperature today starts with the number 9 and is getting dreadfully close to a 1. For this reason, we have decided to never leave our house again and have found clever ways to keep us from melting. We’ve also been testing new recipes that we can’t wait to share with you. Since the beginning of COVID, grocery shopping has become more challenging, so we are making sure our recipes are simple and practical, using easy-to-find ingredients that you may have in your kitchen already. Enter this delightful new appetizer. Introducing our Tart Cherry Bruschetta.
