chai tea latte mix
Cozy & Delightful!
I remember the first time that I tasted a chai tea latte. It was like a holiday explosion in my mouth. So many nostalgic flavors all scooped up into that cup...now you can make your own with a few simple ingredients! This is one of those copycat recipes that make wonderful, easy homemade gift ideas!
Most of these ingredients are probably already in your cupboards. This recipe makes a nice vanilla chai mix but I would love to try it with some pumpkin creamer to make a pumpkin chai as well.
What You'll Need
1 cup nonfat dry milk powder
1 cup powdered non-dairy creamer
1 cup French vanilla flavored powdered non-dairy creamer
2 1/2 cups white sugar
1 1/2 cups unsweetened instant tea
2 teaspoons ground ginger
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon ground cardamom
This chai tea latte mix was easy and delightful to make. The colors were beautiful and it smelled exquisite. I've never used the spice, cardamom before, but it is a lemon-y, forrest-y sensory overload! Once again, a delight!
After I mixed everything up, I ran it through the food processor to give it a powdery form. This helps the flavors blend even better as they sit and meld together. I also added a piece of a vanilla bean into the chai tea mix.
To Serve: Add 2 rounded tablespoons to 12 oz of water. For a creamier drink you can add to milk...or my favorite is 1/2 almond milk 1/2 water.
I spent around $10 for the ingredients and it made over 7 cups of the vanilla chai mix. You can get these bail jars HERE-making this an easy homemade gift idea for the foodies in your life!
