My variation of traditional Indian Chai. Super easy to make in the morning, and a healthy way to get off the coffee habit!
Fresh ground spices are best, but at least ensure they are non-irradiated and organic!!
Cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, clove. (Use 1:4 ratio, meaning more cinnamon)
Fresh grated/sliced ginger and turmeric ( or powdered if unavailable)
In a covered pan, add a coffee cup full of water, 2 tea bags, spices, and sweetener. (Never cook honey, only use raw!). Bring to boil for a minute or so.
Add 1 coffee cup full of milk.
Return to boil, then remove from heat.
Makes two cups of nourishing, healthy chai!!
Add honey to taste if you like.
Fresh spices are nourishing and each of the above has healing and beneficial properties. Look them up!
I learned this recipe for traditional Chai in our Indian/Ayurvedic kitchen at the yoga ashram where I lived one year. I tweaked it by using stevia, soymilk, and cardamom.
