Almond Milk Chai
I love a chai latte from Starbucks. A venti 6 pump soy chai is where it is at. With 54 grams of sugar and 310 calories. Things I did not care about until this whole whole30 thing.
Yesterday I really wanted a chai. I went to the Starbucks at Cameron village and looked at the chai mix I used to buy and decided to get teabags instead since they don’t have any added sugar. Inside the Starbucks they had 12 bags for $7 so I went inside the Harris Teeter and found the same bags, 20 for $5. I then bought the unsweetened vanilla almond milk made by Blue Diamond (I am a big fan of their coconut almond milk!). I boiled about a cup of water, let the tea steep for 5 minutes. Added ½ cup of almond milk and then used my little frother and voila, looks & smells just like Starbucks finest of chai tea lattes!
It, however, was not sweet at all so this morning I added maybe 2 teaspoons of honey and a touch of vanilla extract. Perfection. Seriously.
