Vanilla Chai Protein Tea

The grass is turning greener.

The weather is getting hotter.

And I’ve got a real problem on my hands.

Pretty little precious knees.

20 month old knees to be exact.

That were perfect.  Not a scratch to be had.

Until it got too warm to wear pants everyday.  And we started to dress those pretty little knees in pretty little dresses.

And then those pretty little knees coupled with big wobbly heads went kerplunk onto the hard gravelly concrete.

And we got our first scraped knees ever.

The first of many I suppose.

She didn’t cry.

I didn’t have any bandaids. Or napkins.

So I licked it clean with my mouth. In public. While I was in the middle of a conversation. With somebody I barely know. I just scooped her up, kissed her cheek, and licked the mess out her bloody knee.  I’m not kidding.

Gross, but loving.  It’s much more apealing when a Mama Cat does it to her kitten.  Not so cute when its a Mama Woo with frizzy hair and a bloody gravelly baby/toddler. Spitting pebbles out of my mouth as I’m trying to finish my conversation.

Maybe I should just keep her in pants forever.

And save her from her from the boo boos of the world.

And save myself from appearing even stranger than I already do.

I should really make something to make that baby feel better.

Only she doesn’t like anything but strawberries and bananas.

Boring, cute, wobbly kid.

Guess I’ll just have to make something to make myself feel better.

It’ll benefit her indirectly.

It’s the circle of life.

Mamas happy. Everyone’s happy.

Vanilla Chai Protein Tea

I would just like to briefly add, I am (WAS) currently addicted to the prepackaged drink below.

Well. . . .you can’t really call it an addiction, if you can’t afford to supply your habit. Not “your” habit. My “habit”. Theoretically speaking anyway. So I concocted this stand in, that Stands up and over my previous addiction, and it check mates all over it’s a** because its super yummy and 1000% cheaper. No really. I figured it out. 1000%. That’s alot.


8 oz. Vanilla Soy Milk
1 Chai Tea Bag
1 TB Honey or your favorite sweetner


1. Heat 8 oz. of vanilla soymilk in a glass container in the microwave for 2 minutes.
2. Remove from microwave, insert Chai Tea Bag, and steep  for 5 minutes.
3. Add 1 TB of honey (or preferred sweetner) and stir.
4. Sip. Serve hot, warm, or cold. Place tea on the counter, and roll around in the money you saved from not buying overpriced convenience drinks.

  1. I love you for sharing this! I am sipping on it now, as I type. Mmmmm. Yummy. And so much cheaper than Starbucks Chai Tea Lattes!

  2. Awww, the little Phoebe!!! LoLing at your mama cat licks :-). Well, she does look positively edible in her little dress! Absolutely adorable.

    Even I have been squashing my Starbucks habit — and you know that’s saying something. I’ve replaced it with a Nespresso habit, which is almost as bad. The chai tea looks super delish!!! I bet it would taste good on ice!!!

  3. It’s me desertflower! But this is signing me on as my blog e mail. Let me try again! 🙂

  4. Awww your little girl is uber-cute! And very brave to boot. Blimey that drink sounds lovely…. I might have to see if I can find the ingredients in our boring British supermarkets!

  5. Phoebs! I don’t know how you can even stand to look at her she’s so cute. I feel like if my ugly eyeballs look at her a second too long they’ll explode because they’re not equipped to handle such cuteness. She is a little bugaboo. A tiny, bloody, little bugaboo.
    I love this recipe or yours (3 ingredients!? Awesome!) My mom buys Bolthouse Farms carrot juice (blech) and when the container is empty, puts water in it and freezes it. I have come home with many a leftover kept cold by those little beauties…

    1. Well. . . .I think your mama may be a genius. I want to be crafty like
      that. I just need a freezer to keep in the garage so that i can properly
      organize and fit all the things that I need in a freezer like Bolthouse
      Farms carrot juice containters filled with water. You know.
