Skinny Chai Syrup Recipe



CHAI TEA LATTE LOVERS OUT THERE! 
I have a super delicious recipe for you xx

Mmmmhh I love the smell of chai tea. When I made the syrup my entire apartment smelled like christmas. 

I was always obsessed with Chai Tea Latte by Starbucks. And then I found out the Starbucks version contains honey and million grams of sugar. Same with the Mc Cafe Chai Tea Latte. Ugh. 

Chai Tea Latte & Matcha Latte are my favorite warm drinks right now. Snow has fallen this week and Christmas is soon...I am in the Christmas spirit already and you can't stop me lol. I also made Christmas cookies yesterday and many baking sessions will follow. Aww. Is it too early to listen to Christmas songs?

Honey Bunnies, you will love a mug of spices withwarm plant milk while you sit on the couch watching Home Alone ;)




You'll need

8 cups water (2 liter)
1/3 cup brown sugar 
10 bags of black tea 
3 star anise
3 cinnamon sticks
1 tsp cinnamon
1 piece of ginger (2 cm)
1/2 tsp ground cardamom
1/2 tsp  ground nutmeg
some whole cloves





A chai tea syrup with lots of benefits!

Cardamom: contains antioxidants and lowers blood pressure.

Black tea: lowers a risk of a stroke & contains polyphenols which are antioxidants and it improves the immune system.

Ginger: one of the healthiest spices on the planet! It has anti-inflammatory effects and it may reduce muscle pain and soreness. 

Cinammon is loaded with antioxidants! And it has anti-inflammatory properties. 

Nutmeg: it detoxfies the body and increases the immune system.



Directions

Bring water and sugar to a boil. Add tea bags and spices and turn off the heat a bit. After 7 minutes remove the tea bags. Turn the heat back on and bring water to a boil. Stir syrup frequently (it's not a thick syrup!). After 15 minutes strain the tea syrup. Voilà! Store the chai tea syrup in the fridge for up to two weeks.
