    Oh my, this looks great! I don’t drink (but I will cook with it), so this sounds great – but I’m not a coffee girl, so maybe tea?

    Love your photo! Its definitely awesome Amy =D.

    @Lauren, It would be fabulous with Chai tea and leave out the mint. Yum. Great idea!

    Lauren Reply:

    @Amy, Amy I love you. I just made this with Vanilla chai tea, normal milk (what I had on hand), chocolate chips (might have added a bit more ;D), and maple syrup (don’t have stevia), and the ice of course. It was killer. Mom said to write it down for warmer days. Its a tad to cold for her, but I found it oddly comforting!

    Amy Reply:

    @Lauren, Oh good! I like it chilled, too. Oddly comforting is a great way to describe it. The drink was just slightly chocolately when I made it – more would definitely add an extra punch. Vanilla chai tea sounds fabulous. I’ve had chai tea on the brain since it got cold here.

    Lauren Reply:

    @Lauren, Amy, Mine was just lightly chocolaty too, as I only have a normal blender, it settled to the bottom. Might just add a bit of cocoa powder instead next time. I only realized that when I went to finish it off, but I’m sure lots of chocolate would be great if you could pulverize it, or use chocolate milk. Or make it hot and melt the chocolate. My mind is racing with ideas! for this one =D.

    hiya. interesting site and so is ur story! i’m confused though, are u a celiac or did u just find that no gluten helps u be healthier? i’m intrigued/…

    [Reply]

    Amy Reply:

    @++MIRA++, I don’t have celiac disease. I figured out that wheat and sugar trigger binge eating for me. Today I don’t eat them and I no longer binge eat. I’ve been able to maintain a 60+ pound weight loss for almost 6 years. So, yes, it helps me to be healthier.

    Amy, this is such a beautiful and appealing drink and I love your festive background, too. I don’t drink coffee, but I like the discussion with Lauren on the chai tea possibility. ;-)

    I added my crab ball and reindeer antlers punch … those two can really make a party go from “good” to GREAT! :-)

    I want to try your recipe with a twist — how about a Chocolate Chai Martini… substitute Chai concentrate (Third Street’s Sugar-Free is sweetened with Stevia!) for the coffee, and cinnamon the mint leaves… perhaps garnish with a cinnamon stick too?!

    Also, I just discovered that WestSoy makes an unsweetened chocolate soy milk… perhaps it would be a good milk substitute – not too sweet, but just enough cocoa flavor!

    This sounds yummy – for me I would substitute Teeccino – which is an unbelievable coffee alternative made from chicory, almonds, dates and barley – the label says it is gluten free and it doesn’t bother me. I gave up coffee 1 year ago and swapped it for Teeccino and have not looked back since.
