Chai Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches
Where there is tea, there is hope….or at least 5 minutes of peace locked in a bathroom.
“No, not right now, honey. Mommy is having a cup of tea.”
Tea is my mommy reset button these days. There’s never a day too long or too hot for a cup of tea in my humble opinion. And with summer here, I’m pulling out the big guns. Chai.
A little sweet meets a little spicy for the season – and also serves as the perfect inspiration for my Chai Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches. Grab your Chai Latte, your ice cream scoop and this ultimate summer cookie recipe and welcome summer with open arms. Hello, summer. You’re looking tasty.
Chai. These 4 letters together spell harmony in my mommy world. And no Chai Latte is more perfect than the new TAZO® Chai Latte K-Cup® pods. A little sweet, a little spicy, a little ME, this chai tea blends together all of the right flavors for a totally unexpected mommy indulgence.
Did you know that Chai has been steeped in 5,000 years of rich Indian history? That means that you get the perfect creamy blend of black tea, cinnamon, ginger, cardamom and vanilla flavor now expertly made in the comforts of my home.
All you need is a Keurig®, a push of a button and voila, instant happiness is stirred into my soul.
