I really enjoy chai tea for its spice and peppery notes. I have never been able to replicate a commercial chai tea latte without adding excessive sugar until now. It requires minimal attention, a few stirrings, and a slow cooker. A one cup serving is about 119 calories- much less than a chai tea latte from any coffeehouse.
You are in control of what goes into this drink. You can easily substitutes spices or type of milk.
Before serving, I was able to use a hand held milk frother to achieve a creamier texture.
Hope you’ve got a part of people coming over because this recipe certainly makes a lot. If it’s just you and your cat for a few weeks, you can pout the extras into mason jars and keep in the refrigerator for a few weeks.
- 1/2 gallon milk (regular or any nut milk will work)
- 3 TB. sugar
- 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
Add the milk, sugar, and cinnamon in the slow cooker and turn on high.
Mix the ingredients with a whisk and allow to heat for 10 minutes.
Turn the slow cooker down to low and add 12 tea bags. (I was able to tape the strings to the sides of my slow cooker to keep the tea bags from falling in).
Cook on low for 4 hours (or until you achieved your desired strength of flavor), stirring occasionally.
