Manda’s Milo Drink

Manda’s Milo Drink for those of you who love a warm cup of coffee first thing in the morning….yet….

I know some of you are struggling with coming off the coffee (me included – seriously doesn’t agree with my adrenals).

So I came up with this awesome warming drink this morning, it is kind of like a chai, has green tea, and cacao in it so you get a bit of a buzz without the crash – and its chock full of immune boosting superfoods, perfect for this time of year.
