coconut chai latte

Winter finally arrived and I just want to curl up in a blanket on the couch and wrap my hands around a warm mug of this coconut chai latte. I complained about the crazy warm weather we were having around Christmas.  I want it to be cold and feel like winter at Christmas time and…
