Delicious Almost-Instant Chai

Total Time

With this Chai recipe, you are preparing a chai-spiced flavored milk to add to your individual cup of tea. It's delicious, time-saving, and perfect if you want one or two cups at a time instead of a large batch of chai. Fresh grind whole spices for a much better result. I use a morter and pestle for everything but the cinnamon which I do purchase ground because I find it tough to grind at home.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place milk and spices into a very clean jar, shake to mix and chill.
  2. Let set for 24 hours for optimum flavor, though I have used it immediately because I was impatient.
  3. The longer it sits, the stronger the flavors get, and it will last for a few weeks in the fridge.
  4. Use 2-3 Tablespoons per cup with your favorite tea and sweeten with your favorite sweetener. I'm partial to green tea and honey myself.

I was surprised at how close this was to the real thing. I love Chai Tea so I just had to try this one! I chose to use this as a coffee creamer so I added a few Tbsp. of sugar to sweeten it and left out the pepper. I'd like to try Honey as a sweetner next time and try this in green tea as suggested. I liked it and would make this again. Thank's again for posting!
