Even on the coldest of days I crave ice cream. Maybe it's the tufts of white snow that have me dreaming of a chilled sweet treat, but I am never one to need the steamy sun for a scoop.
During a recent trip to NYC for a client's documentary film screening at Harney SoHo, I savored a few quiet moments in their Tea Lounge with SoCo Creamery's chai tea ice cream made with Harney's Chai tea. Each fragrant spoonful was rich with exotic spices that sent my senses on an edible excursion.
Whatever you do, don't let the winter weather warnings keep you from Harney's cozy tea lounge tucked in the back of their beautiful shop. The menu is worth a few steps in city slush. But if you prefer to watch the flakes fall from your window, keep your cravings inside the kitchen with Sanura's recipe for Vanilla Chai Ice Cream found on her tasty blog, My Life Runs on Food.
The often warming spices of chai tea masterfully find their way into this chilly treat, but that doesn't mean you can't steep a cup of steamy Masala Chai to warm up after the fragrant freeze has left the bowl.
