A delicious easy Homemade Chai Spice Recipe to use in lattes, muffins, cake, pancakes, waffles, homemade syrup or anything you want to give a wonderful chai flavor. 5 minutes to make and just 6 ingredients!
Add all of the ingredients to a small bowl, and whisk very well. Alternatively, add them to a jar with a tight-fitting lid and shake vigorously to ensure even mixing. Store in a sealed container in a cool, dry place for up to 6 months.
Add to any recipe calling for chai spice blend or to any recipe you want to add a chai spice flavor. For a dozen muffins, 2 teaspoons is a good amount.
To make a warm caffeine-free chai latte, add 1 1/2 teaspoons to 8 oz of milk of choice, sweetener (I used 1-2 teaspoons maple syrup) and warm through over the stove on a gentle simmer, whisking constantly until heated through. Alternatively, you can whisk this all in a mug, heat in the microwave for 1 1/2 minutes and whisk again well before drinking. Using a creamy milk is best, as spices are richer and more enhanced in fat, so lite, watery milks won't taste as good. Since these are dry spices (not a chai syrup or chai concentrate like this amazing Masala Chai Rrecipe), the spices will naturally settle at the bottom of the cup. I just keep a fork in my mug and whisk periodically while drinking. Still tastes amazing!
