You’ve practiced hard and tension has a habit of mounting. Treat yourself to this warm, frothy, chamomile latte to help you sleep the night before your performance, or enjoy it just before you begin to warm up back stage. Take the time to breathe before your big performance.
Chamomile is naturally caffeine free so is great any time of day or night. The sweet vanilla soy milk is heated and frothed; with the added honey and the aromatics of the cinnamon and chocolate, this will comfort and ease any butterflies in your stomach.
If you don't have a frother, you can simply whisk the soy milk on a stove top until hot and frothy. Also, while chamomile flowers are not always available, you can easily find simple chamomile tea bags in most grocery stores - two is probably good depending on your taste. Of course, you will want to double the recipe if you are sharing with your stand partner or accompanist.

- 2 tbsp chamomile flowers (or two chamomile tea bags)
