Homemade Chai Concentrate
- 1 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 3/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
- 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Mix all of the ingredients together in a jar. Done! Looking for a dairy-free chai concentrate? Substitute cream of coconut for the sweetened condensed milk using a 1:1 ratio! Easy, and just as delicious.
Directions for Use
Add two heaping teaspoons to a strong cup of coffee, hot chocolate, warmed milk or black tea, such as Assam, or more to taste. Stir well and enjoy. Refrigerate concentrate for up to six months.
I love having this mix on hand- it’s rich, creamy & indulgent and a great way to warm up on a cold night. Package a jar of homemade chai concentrate with loose Assam tea, a tea strainer and a big mug for a great holiday gift. Or for the coffee-lover, maybe give a jar with a bag of home-roasted coffee & a mug…. Oh decisions decisions!
