This summer I have been completely obsessed with cold brew tea – especially chai served with lots of ice and milk! There is nothing like an ice cold drink on a hot day to revive and refresh a person. The best thing is that this is super simple and pretty healthy too!
You see, I adore chai, but the concentrates have way too many calories and sugars to drink every day. But I want chai every day. So, I discovered that I could make my own cold brew chai and cheat the system! Tea usually doesn’t have many calories, so its all in the milk and sugar you choose. Try coconut milk for a more tropical flavor with fewer calories or agave nectar if you are trying to avoid too much sugar. That’s the great thing about making your own at home, you can experiment and cater to your needs as well as knowing exactly what’s going into your drink! Plus, it costs a fraction of what Starbucks charges, so you’ll save a ton of money too!
