Chai Tea Latte Mix
Not sure where I picked this recipe up
¾ c. non-fat dry milk powder
1 ¼ c. powdered non-dairy creamer
1 ½ c. French vanilla flavored powdered non-dairy creamer
2 c. sugar
1 ¼ c. brown sugar
2 c. unsweetened instant tea
2 tsp. ground ginger
2 ½ tsp. ground cinnamon
1 ¼ tsp. cloves
1 ½ tsp. ground cardamom
1 ½ tsp. ground nutmeg
1 tsp. allspice
¼ tsp. finely ground white pepper
Mix all ingredients together. In a blender or food processor, blend 1 c. at a time until mixture is the consistency of fine powder. To serve: stir 2 heaping tablespoons of the mix into a mug of hot water. To make richer & creamier, use 2% milk instead of water.
I made it without the cardamom the first time because I didn't have any on hand and it was ridiculously expensive at the time. I didn't miss it. This time around, I'll be adding it since my sister brought me some. While I'm sure it'll be a great addition, as I said, it wasn't missed when not in the mix. Enjoy!
