Assalamu Alaykum,

I’m in an awesome positive mood this morning. The Sun is shining and the sky is clear. Alhamdulillah. I told you, I totally feed off of the Sun.

What can I say about Chai other than I’m completely and utterly obsessed. Anyone who knows me knows I’m a crazy chai lover. Especially Pakistani style Chai. I love it so much that I’ve got  recipe for Chai Ice-cream. Yum! 

If you get a chance to make it, tweet me pics @Ummjohar and let me know how it turned out for you! 

Want to get the kids involved? Have them make their own Ice cream!! Simply follow all Directions up to 6. Once it’s cold, Give them a Ziplock bag with ice and a pinch of salt, pour mixture over the ice and seal the Ziplock bag. Put Ziplock Bag into a plastic grocery bag and have them Shake it up until it becomes Ice cream!
