Spiced Chai Tea

from 1 votes

A meal just isn’t a complete meal unless the last taste is something sweet. Whether it’s Mini Macaroons after dinner, Monster Cookies after lunch or red licorice after breakfast (yep, the scrambled eggs just weren’t doing it for me this morning), a sugary finale is an absolute must.

And dining out is no different. If there’s a dessert menu, we’re looking at it. So I was thrilled when I came across a super simple recipe for one of my all-time favorite, any-time-of-the-day, slightly sweet Spiced Chai Tea. And in an attempt to curb the calories, I’ve swapped in non-fat milk and Splenda to make this hot or iced beverage totally guilt-free.

    I made using unsweetened vanilla almond milk. It was soooo good. Chai is probably one of my all-time favorite things.
