Homemade Chai Latte

Once you make homemade chai, you’ll never go back to store-bought! 
By Lisa of @BeautyByBenz

Ingredients

    • 4 black tea bags (such as Assam, Darjeeling or Oolong) 
    • 4 Purecane™ Individual Packets
    • 2 cinnamon sticks (+ more for garnish)  
    • 2 star anise pods (+ more for garnish) 
    • ¼ teaspoon whole cloves
    • ¼ teaspoon ground cardamom 
    • ½ teaspoon whole black peppercorns 
    • ½ teaspoon ground ginger (or 1 piece fresh ginger) 
    • 1 cup boiling water
    • 4 cups milk of choice (use unsweetened non-dairy milk to make this recipe sugar-free and vegan!)
    • 1 tbsp vanilla extract (optional) 


Directions

  1. Bring one cup of water to a boil. 
  2. While water is boiling, break your cinnamon sticks in half and toss into a bowl. Roughly crush all other spices together with a mortar and pestle (or use the flat side of a spoon), and add to the bowl with cinnamon sticks. 
  3. Once the water has been brought to a boil, add in spice mixture and tea bags. Boil for 3-5 minutes, essentially making a chai concentrate. 
  4. Put chai concentrate through a fine mesh strainer to catch all the big pieces of spices and the tea bags. 
  5. Add 4 Purecane™ Individual Packets to your concentrate to sweeten. 
  6. Optional: add 1 tbsp vanilla extract to chai concentrate to make a vanilla chai!
  7. Add 2 tbsp of chai concentrate to one cup steamed milk of choice. 
  8. Add star anise pods &/or cinnamon sticks for garnish. 
  9. This makes 4 servings, so enjoy immediately or keep remaining chai concentrate in the fridge for up to a week!

Recipe Tips

You will love the taste of Purecane Baking Sweetener and how similar it browns to sugar. Here are a few tips to help you enjoy your Purecane baking experience:

  • Don’t forget to bring your butter to room temperature if you are blending butter with Purecane.
  • Purecane will take a little longer to blend with butter, but it is worth the wait.
  • If you prefer a moister baked result, consider increasing your eggs or the amount of butter you use.
  • For recipes calling for 1 cup or more of PURECANE™ Baking Sweetener, you may wish to add 1/8 teaspoon of salt for a better balanced sweetness.
