homemade chai mix

 
Ask my husband, and my children what is Momma’s favorite hot drink, or drink in general. And they will surely tell you Chai.  And its true.

Mug after mug of it!Back when I was a teenager I discovered this yummy decadent
drink. One of my friends Mom’s from Church made their own Chai. Since
then I’ve had that hankerin’ for the absolutely divine drink!

 
I’ve fallen in love with Chai of all kinds! Some might call it an addiction. I call it pure mommy bliss!

I use to purchase the mystic Chai brand at Sam’s Club. Buying it premade can get pretty pricey.

I searched the net for a to die for recipe…and couldn’t find anything close! So one day I received my taste of home magazine and what do you know…a Chai recipe! I made the mix and tried it…

WOW…it was the closes thing to the mystic brand! And I loved it!

Since then, I’ve experimented with using other dairy flavorings to my mugs. Some favorite experiments so far are:

French
Vanilla , Vanilla Latte, Cinnamon Vanilla Creme, Italian Sweet Creme,
Hazelnut, Pumpkin Spice, Peppermint Mocha, Gingerbread etc…

  I’ve found this absolutely yummy recipe, you won’t find my drink station without this delightful drink! ;0)
