View Full Version : Yummy Chai (or Egg Nog)
09-22-2006, 03:38 PM
I made a really fabulous chai drink the other day, but the last 2 times I made it it tasted more like egg nog. Both were super fabulous! Anyway I guess it could be either depending on the spices you use.
Here's what I did:
large glass of almond milk
chai spices (I don't have all of them, I used cinnamon, anise, nutmeg, clove, black pepper, and ginger)
blend it really well
strain the chunky spices off (In my case clove)
blend with honey and vanilla
throw in 1 frozen banana

Ah the season for this is just upon us. Somehow this does not sound that appealing in summer but does now. It's the 'winter blues' gene in us?

To MangoMommy: Chai is usually black tea, cardamom, ginger, clove, cinnamon, black pepper, plus any assortment of "spicy" spices you can find :)
