Recipe | Cozy Christmas Chai Concentrate

So you're sitting down to do a Christmas project while watching a Christmas movie, and you need a cup of something warm and cozy. 

You're sick of hot chocolate and you've already had way too much coffee today. You're out of warm apple cider and it's too early in the day for boilo. 

So what should you make?

Christmas Chai, that's what!

Now chai tea is obviously not just for Christmas time. 

But there's something about the mix of spices in this concentrate that gets me thinking of Christmas whenever I make it.

And all you need to do when you want a cup of spiced yummy goodness is brew a strong cup of black tea and add a generous spoonful of this concentrate!

Chai Tea Concentrate

1 14oz can of sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon cardamom
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon cloves
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

Mix everything together and store in a jar in the fridge. Add a generous spoonful the next time you make a cup of strong black tea!

This stuff warms you right up and gets you in the holiday spirit!

(it's also fabulous as coffee creamer!)

The concentrate makes a really great gift for friends... just make it up for them in a pretty jar and attach the instructions! 

** update ** as I'm drinking my chai this morning, I'm remembering that I forgot to tell you not to drink it all the way... all the spices sink to the bottom. Unless you like to chew on cardamom and cinnamon ;-)

Excited to try this recipe? Please pin it to your Christmas board!
