Make chai latte yourself

When you leave the house in the cold season, it can get uncomfortable. The more beautiful is the return home. After the cold, we always get really cozy and warm up with a delicious winter hot drink. Our first choice: make your own chai latte. Of course, you can also enjoy the drink in the summer. For the “fresh kick” it drinks wonderfully with ice cubes. This chai latte recipe is quick and easy to prepare.

The ingredients you need for this chai latte recipe are often already stocked in your spice cabinet. Winter spices such as cinnamon, cloves, star anise and cardamom are processed into a fine powder in a mortar for this recipe. Powder that has it in it, because cardamom and star anise, for example, have a positive effect on digestion and can alleviate stomach complaints. At the same time, star anise also has an expectorant effect. Consequently, the chai latte in combination with fresh ginger also fits ideally into the cold season. When grinding the spices, the surface of these increases and thus the flavors can be better absorbed by the water and the nutrients consequently better by the body during brewing.

The best thing you can do is to make a whole stock of the chai mixture. We always have a jar in the pantry. So if you’re ever plagued by a cough or just want to warm up, feel free to have your loved one bring this drink to your bedside. Don’t forget the latte in the chai. Feel free to use the plant milk of your choice here. Most often we serve the drink with sugar-free oat milk.
