Homemade Chai Spice Mix

All ingredients in my pantry so it was not much of an effort, but I know they are not standard al the time in many households, so feel free to check out a good spice store! I am obsessed with chai and I ran out of coconut milk tonight, so I could not try the coconutty one I was planning on, but vanilla soy made it delicious.


Makes 6 cups

2 teaspoons cinnamon

2 star anise

1 tablespoon cardamom pods

1 teaspoon whole cloves

1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

6 cps light vanilla soy ilk or any milk of your choice

1 teaspoon ground ginger


In a mortar, with a pestle, or in a grinder, add spices except ground ginger. Bring the milk to a boil add spoon in fresh spices. Strain after the milk comes to a strong simmer and drink! You can play with the flavors to make it stronger or weaker, but this is a pretty strong mix. I don’t like sweet teas, so feel free to add honey, brown sugar, or stevia!
