- 2 cups milk (whole make it nice and rich)
- 4 leaves basil
- 1 garlic clove, crushed
- 1 small onion, diced
- 1 cup vegetable bouillon (chicken OK)
- salt, to your taste
- Place Chaya leaves, chopped onions and crushed garlic in a pot with the bouillon and cook for two minutes or until leaves are blanched (use mid-heat).

- Use a stick blender mix to a smooth velvety texture the remaining ingredients,
- Cook another five to ten minutes or until mixture gets really hot but does not boil.
- Serve hot.
- Add the final touch by placing the unsweetened cream in a small bag; cutting the bag’s bottom tip, you can create a lovely design atop your served soup bowls.
- For a zesty taste, sprinkle a bit of crush dried red chili as well.
- Or add a dab of sour cream.
