Vanilla Chai Tea Latte Mix

With record cold temperatures, I highly recommend making up a batch of my favorite winter drink: vanilla chai tea latte mix. Or if you like chocolate here’s a great recipe for instant hot cocoa mix.

Vanilla Chai Tea Latte Mix
1 cup nonfat dry milk powder
1/2 cup powdered non-dairy creamer (I used Coffee-mate)
1 ½  cups French vanilla powdered non-dairy creamer
1 ½ cups unsweetened instant tea
2 ½ cups white sugar
1 teaspoon ginger
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon cloves
½ teaspoon cardamom
½ teaspoon nutmeg
½ teaspoon all spice

1. Combine all ingredients.  you may want to add more or less spices depending on how the drink tastes to you.
note: I ran the tea and spice through my food processor – you don’t have to.
2. Store in an airtight container or large mason jar.
3. Add two-three tablespoons of mix to 8 ounces of hot water or milk.
note: I like mine with milk or almond milk. I heat the milk up on the stove and add the mix and then use a hand frother for some foam.


  1. I love Chai Lattes and love a make your own at home mix. I will definitely be trying this out.
