As Spring Break rolls in, I'm beyond excited to be spending even more time lounging around the house, browsing the internet, and getting creative. Since I'm not having to stress about school right now, my creative juices are flowing and I can't wait to share some of the stuff I've been working on. But first, I'm sharing what's been keeping me caffeinated and ready to take on life's adventures.

My green tea latte is unlike any other you'll find. While coffee companies talk a big game with their creamy lattes, they have nothing on this dreamy blend of coconut cream and Bigelow Green Tea infused with just a splash of Vanilla and a pinch of Matcha Powder. So deliciously healthy!

4 Things My Morning Latte Taught Me About Life:

Be patient - You have to wait for the water to boil, the milk to froth, the tea to steep. Tea is a waiting game, so whether you realize it or not - making a cup o' tea is helping build patience.

Try it, you'll like it - Don't be afraid to try something you used to not like, it may be your favorite. I used to really, really hate tea... well, I thought I did anyways. Then my husband convinced me to try raspberry tea and from that point on, I was hooked. I've found a passion for green tea though, it's health benefits and ability to soothe can't be compared.

Go All 'Merican - While it's hilarious to joke about 'Merica and our silly ways, it's a good idea to boost our economy by buying American-made products whenever possible. I'm in love with Bigelow Tea because it's an All American company. Made by an American Family, available at an American Retailer (Walmart).

Bigelow's Tea Plantation in Charleston is actually America's largest working tea garden - hosting family events like weddings and even a variety of music festivals. What's better than tea on a plantation? Southern culture and American history at it's finest!

Let it Go - While Frozen may have taught us this as well, I'm pretty inspired by Bigelow Tea's giving nature. With almost 4 million bags of tea sent to our troops with Bigelow's Tea for Troops program, I know it's time to start letting go of more of what I have to help others.

Ingredients:

Bigelow Green Tea
1/2 cup Coconut Milk
1/2 tsp Vanilla Flavored Syrup
Pinch of Matcha Powder (optional)
Whipped Cream (optional)


Begin my preparing tea as instructed on package (boiling water and steeping bag). While the water is boiling, you can begin making your coconut milk froth. Whip coconut milk over medium heat in a sauce pan.

Allow the tea bag to steep in hot water in the glass and continue to mix milk in the pan until foamy and bubbly.
