The cooler days of Fall are approaching fast, in fact some feel they are already here. A nice warm chai latte can take the edge off of the cooler nights, or an iced version can cool you off on the warmer days. Here is a recipe to create your own mix to have on hand, or give as a gift. Complimented with a bit of Coffee Mate’s Vanilla Chai Spice cream and it’s heaven in a cup.
1 c. nonfat dry milk powder
1 c. powdered non-dairy creamer
1 c. french vanilla powdered non-dairy creamer
2 1/2 c. granulated sugar
1 1/2 c. unsweetened instant tea
2 t. ground ginger
2 t. ground cinnamon
1 t. ground cloves
1 t. ground cardamom
Mix all ingredients in a large bowl. Feel free to blend to a powder in a food processor, although all ingredients do dissolve in water so this is not necessary. Stir 2- 3 heaping tablespoons into a mug of hot water. Add cream if desired. Enjoy!
