awaiting the snow

(making peanut butter banana smoothies. added ground flax seed for an extra fiber boost.) 

(making homemade chai concentrate. i mainly used this recipe here, but i used a "chai spice" tea i already had.)

   well, the weather changed drastically within this past week. there was hints of snowfall here in this midwest city. although it was not cold enough to stick, it was exciting to be out and around this. it was quite a chilly day for my first day back to classes from thanksgiving break. luckily  my first of my morning classes was canceled, which gave me more time to lounge around in the warmth. i believe no one wanted to come back from our break, including the teachers. i am counting down days to winter break from school, christmas, and winter activities i have in mind. 
   i experimented with a chai recipe, which for the most part, was a good first try. i made enough where a can still have a few more cups, since the weather is so cold i figured i would love some in the evening (the tea is decaffeinated ). i made a smoothie with some ripe bananas for an afternoon snack, i completely forgot how much i enjoy them. i am also a huge fan of peanut butter, so anything with that tastes wonderful to me. 
   readers, what are you favorite warm drinks for chilly days?

    Also, I'm not much of a connoisseur when it comes to hot drinks, but celestial seasonings has a tea out that is called Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride, and it tastes so good! It's amazing!

    Too bad it doesn't snow here in SoCal!
