Almond Milk Chai

Nov. 29, 2016

A chai is sometimes the perfect sweet pick-me up on a really cold day. Coffee shop chai can be made right on your stove, and you’ll end up with something quite delicious that is lower is sugar than a traditional chai latte. You can buy any brand of chai tea that you like, if you get one that is already naturally flavored with vanilla, slowly add vanilla to taste so you don’t end up with something too sweet.
