    Mango Chai Lemonade

    Need a midday break? This delicious spiced lemonade is the perfect pick-me-up for a quick afternoon reset. The beautiful warm spices we typically associate with the colder months don’t need to be forgotten in the summer. They pair beautifully with tropical fruits such as mango or papaya and can be enjoyed year-round. A fruity herbal tea also would work perfectly for a simple caffeine-free version.
