Paleo London Fog

Jessica loves a London Fog from Starbucks. She's seriously working on her budget and has found a way to make one at home that is really good! So, every time she drinks one at home, she's saving over $4.
I bought her some nice Earl Grey tea bags at the grocery and some Vanilla Coconut Milk. (the vanilla coconut milk was actually an earlier mistake - I always buy the  Original, not the Vanilla, but they were in the wrong place at the grocery and I didn't notice!)

So, Jess put around 12 oz of vanilla coconut milk in a small pan on the stove. She heated it up slowly, on about a 3, until it was hot, but not at all boiling. She put an Earl Grey tea bag in and simmered it another 3-4 minutes.  Then she poured it into her favorite mug (Hedwig) and drank that lovely scented concoction.  She likes it as good as Starbucks, maybe better, since the coconut milk has more calcium, it's paleo, and her version doesn't have who knows how many pumps of vanilla syrup. Oh, and don't forget the price!!  
I would have made a cup of Earl Grey in water, then added some vanilla coconut milk, but her version is really nice. It's perfect for fall - you should try it and tell us what you think!
