My hubby is a big fan of chai tea. He will drink multiple mugs full of it a day. It’s so bad that he normally leaves a mug out so that he can reuse it throughout the day similar to what some might do with a water glass. So when I ran across some recipes for homemade vanilla chai tea mix last year I decided to give it a try. At that point, I had nothing to lose and everything to gain. I combined a few bits and pieces from a couple of recipes and came up with something that not only did my husband like it, he seems to prefer it to most of the concentrates or mixes sold in the store. I whip up a big batch every couple of weeks and he is free to drink to his heart’s content. Are you ready to make some of your own?
- 1 cup non dairy creamer
- 1 cup non dairy vanilla creamer
- 1 cup dry milk powder
- 1½ cups instant tea, unsweetened
- 2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 2 tsp ground ginger
- 1 tsp ground cloves
- 1 tsp allspice
- 1 tsp nutmeg
- 2½ cups sugar
- Add all ingredients to blender or food processor and pulse until it becomes a fine powder. Add two to three tbsp. mix to 8 ounces hot milk or water.
Now all that’s left to do is add 2-3 tablespoons of the mix to 8 ounces of hot milk or water and enjoy!
