This Skinny Vanilla Chai Tea recipe is a great way to warm up when the cooler weather strikes.
Fall is my favorite season.
I love the cooler weather, the gorgeous colors of the treetops and warm comfort foods. Oh, and turtlenecks. I love turtlenecks.
One of our favorite things to do in the Fall is go leaf-peeping. My husband gets the biggest coffee he can find, the little guy gets a hot chocolate and I get a big, fat Chai tea. Then, we hop in the car and road trip around (sometimes near and sometimes far) looking at all of the gorgeous leaves.
It’s one of our favorite things to do.
I love Chai tea almost as much as I love Fall. I love the warm, spicy flavors and the sweet creaminess. Yet for some reason, I’ve never tried to make Chai tea at home. Until now!
For as much as I love Chai tea, I wanted to cut the calories so I could enjoy as much as I like without worrying about the added sugar.
This recipe tastes just like the Chai tea I get at the fancy coffee house. I was amazed by just how easy it was to make at home. It’s nice to know that I don’t have to go out to get my favorite hot beverage.
I used Sweet’N Low® instead of sugar to sweeten this recipe. It’s a great alternative to sugar because it adds sweetness without the caloric guilt.
Sweet’N Low® is America’s favorite little pink packet. It’s made by a 3rd generation, family-owned company and the brand has been around for close to 60 years.
