Pumpkin Spice Chai Latte

Let’s be honest, tea doesn’t have what coffee does. However it’s way more healthier than coffee. So the days when I don’t pay my high calorie high caffeine visit to Starbucks, this is what I make. And it saves too, I mean $4 for cup of coffee???

Things that you need for 2 cups of Pumpkin Spice Chai Latte: 

  • 1 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tbsp pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 3/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 2 black tea bags, tags removed
  • sugar/sweetener if needed

All that you need to do is: 

Mix everything and bring it to boil. Simmer for a minute while stirring well. And enjoy!

 

 

 

 

Chocolate Spice Chai Latte

Two things motivated me to create this drink. My reduced coffee in take keeping me away from Pumpkin Spice Latte and the cold stormy rains today.

This fall, Pumpkin Spice Latte has been my new found love. As I am trying to stay away from coffee, I try to have it every alternate day and to reduce sugar and other fat things, I order it skinny, no whipped cream, 1 1/2 pump Pumpkin Spice Latte. So I need something that replaces  my beloved Pumkin Spice Latte. 

The another motivation was my mumbaikar compulsive need to have Masala Chai whenever it rains combined with cold hot chocolate New England weather. I just combined both. The first sip was little surprising but then I loved it. 

Here is what you need to make 2 cups of Chocolate Spice Chai Latte: 

  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 black tea bags, tags removed
  • 2 tbsp Nestle Cocoa mix
  • A pinch of ginger powder
  • A pinch of nutmeg powder
  • A pinch of cinnamon powder

Method: 

  1. Combine everything except cocoa and nutmeg powder in a deep saucepan and bring it to boil.
  2. Add nutmeg to it and turn the heat off.
  3. In 2 cups divide the cocoa powder and pour chai over it.
  4. Stir and enjoy it while looking at the rain outside of a window.
