My Favorite Chai Latte to Make at Home

*the brands in this photo are just suggestions - any brand will do

This morning when I came downstairs to make breakfast, I was really craving a chai latte.  As I was sipping the yummy goodness I had made - I decided I should share my simple recipe for the perfect at home chai latte with all of you!

Now, there is nothing exciting or extravagant about this recipe - except for the fact that it just tastes so darn good.  

I have a variety of chai teas in my home, but this morning I went for these chai K-cups by Tazo.  I pop the K cup into my Keurig and let it do its thing.  After the tea is done brewing, I add in a splash of skim milk - I'd say about two tablespoons (this is just an estimate...I really just pour some milk into the mug).  

Next, I stir in two teaspoons of sugar to add the right amount of sweetness without losing that "chai-bite" that I am in love with.  Finally - my favorite step - I add a teaspoon of vanilla extract.  Not only does the vanilla add a tiny bit more sweetness - but it rounds out the flavor of the latte and takes it to a new level.  

There you have it - my favorite chai latte to prepare at home.  

Do any of you have at home coffee-house recipes?  I'd love for you to share them in the comments!

Have a happy Wednesday.

With love,

    1. Thank you! I find that a good chai is the best on a winter day.

  3. Mmm, chai tea is good. You should try substituting the cream and sugar with sweetened condensed milk. So decadent, so good!
