What better way to get in a good mood than by drinking this uuuuuh-mazing healthy Homemade Chai Spice Latte *little hearts in my eyes*
GOOD MORNING BEAUTIES!! Feeling all fresh and energetic yet? No? Well, when I get up I don’t feel like that either….EVER! Let’s just put it the understated way: I am not a morning person ;) I don’t want to see anybody and I especially don’t want to “hear” anything. I have two kids though, remember? So both is practically impossible. I have to deal with my I-hate-the-world-morning-mood in the best possible way in order not to kill my breed.
The Homemade Chai Spice Latte pushed the “you may speak now” up to the middle line! It is extremely effective for mood improvement. How about that for an awesome brew?
What Spices go in a Homemade Chai Spice Latte?
In my opinion, the best ones to add are cinnamon, clove, ginger, cardamom and anis star. You can leave out any you don’t like of course, that’s the beauty of a Homemade Chai Spice Latte. You are the boss, you decide what goes in there. The ratios depend a lot on each individual’s liking, however, in general I would say, go easy on the clove, cardamom and anis star and be generous with cinnamon and ginger.
Make sure you strain your spices once the tea is infused. My husband loves it with all the spices still floating around but he’s a bit weird. I’m sure you are more normal like me and prefer it stained ;)
How to make frothed milk without a machine
I don’t have an expensive espresso machine with those fancy milk froth thingies so I have to become creative to make frothed milk. It’s not that hard, promise. You only need a tight sealable glass container and some muscle. Shake the milk A LOT and you end up with beautifully frothed milk. The best way is actually to reheat the milk often and then shake again, reheat, shake, reheat, shake etc. I’m lazy though so I just pour the hot milk in the jar, close the lid, shake like a crazy person once and that’s it. Good enough! So now you have it, how to make frothed milk without a machine? Shake it, shake it, shake, shake it, shake it, shake it (oh oh). Shake it, shake it like a Polaroid picture, shake it, shake it…. ;)
Beautifully frothed milk, right? Besides, this is my morning fix, remember? I NEED it and I need it FAST! Homemade Chai Spice Latte, I love you!
