Here is a Chai Latte recipe for in your slow cooker!! I make this around Christmas time, but you could make any time of the year, of course. Many people adore a lushious Chai Latte and when they order one at the coffee shop I am always surprised that it is made from some dubious dried and sickly sweet powder. Probably full of additives not so healthy for our bodies?? Here is a wholesome recipe.
- 8 cups of water
- 8 black tea bags
- 1/2 cup of rapadura sugar (this is unrefined and unprocessed sugar) feel free to use xylitol or stevia or any other type of wholesome sweetener adjust amount accordingly.
- 16 whole cloves
- 16 cardamom seeds
- 5 cinnamon sticks
- 8 slices of fresh ginger
- 1 vanilla bean
- 1/2 cup milk
- Combine water, tea bags, sweetener, cloves, cardamom, cinnamon sticks and ginger in your slow cooker. Cover and cook on high 2-2 1/2 hours.
- Strain the mixture and discard the solids. At this point you can keep the tea refrigerated for 3 days.
- Stir in the milk just before serving.
