Since moving to Hawaii I crave iced drinks now more than ever. Golden milk was something I really got into right before leaving San Francisco and I’ve always been a chai tea junkie. In this recipe I took the best of both worlds combined them with thick coconut milk and threw the whole concoction over ice. Pure bliss on a hot day.

Iced Coconut-Chai Golden Milk

A great shortcut for this recipe is to buy an already pre-blended chai spice. I also like to use cashew milk in this recipe but almond, soy or regular cow's milk will work too. Use organic ingredients whenever possible.
