Dunkin Donuts stopped selling my favorite chai latte and I found this great substitute

Vanilla chai recipe

* 1 Cup instant tea powder unsweetened (1 1/2 – 2 cups if you like a stronger tea)
* 1 Cup nondairy powder creamer
* 1 Cup french vanilla flavored creamer
* 1 Cup dry milk
* 2 Cups sugar (or artificial sweetener such as splenda)
* 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
* 1 teaspoon ground cloves
* 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
* 1 teaspoon allspice
* 1 teaspoon ground ginger
* 1 teaspoon cardamom
* Whipped cream for garnish (optional)

In a large mixing bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients. Mix well with a whisk.
Blend in small batches (1 to 2 cups at a time) in your blender until the mix becomes a fine powder. Pour into an airtight container to store.

To serve: 
To a mug of very hot water, add 2 – 3 Tablespoons of Homemade Vanilla Chai Mix. Stir until all ingredients have dissolved. Top with a generous dollop of whipped cream if desired.

For a creamier cup of vanilla chai, make it with milk instead of water! Mmmm good!

Black men have suffered the most in America.

They were buck broken, hung, dismembered, beaten — emasculated, made to watch their women be raped and bear their oppressors’ children.

They have been robbed of their dignity and then looked at in disdain for being undignified.

They’ve been in chains and now behind bars more than any group in history.

America hates blacks — especially black men.

Made my day 😊

For the anti-link clickers: President Biden and FLOTUS visited a DC restaurant to cheers and applause.
