Introducting the HAPPY HIPPIE.

 While I lived in Melbourne I used to volunteer at this magical place called Lentil As Anything. There, some genius barista had invented a beverage that wasn’t on the official menu but was a common order amongst us volunteers. See, it’s sort of a Centaur - half a Chai and half a Hot Chocolate. Let’s just say it’s been titled the ‘Happy Hippie’ for a reason. So using a vegan healthy chai milk recipe with some leftover Oatly chocolate milk from this weekends roadtrip - I created my own version this afternoon. Holy yum!

So just as I am done with my Vegan version Padthai I realize - I have no chopsticks! That sort of kills half the pleasure of eating this thing. Oh well, I dare say it was fully satisfactory with only a fork. Of course it’s hard to make this dish as well as the real thai version straight from the street side kitchens, but I’ll bet a billion (well, a billion baht at least) my version was a whole lot less greasy.
