DIY Chai Spice Mix

Just because Spring is approaching doesn’t mean you have to nix all things winter. I love me a yummy iced chai or chai protein smoothie during the warmer months 😀 I decided to combine my chai spice resources into one chai spice powder for easy access. That way, I can have a sprinkle of chai here and there without going through the hassle of re-mixing the spices.

What do you need?

Make your own Chai Spice with just a few simple ingredients!

Now I can tuck my chai spices away with my baking supplies and keep the single chai spice mix handy and accessible!

I am a stickler for saving old spice containers…especially the ones I buy from Penzey’s. They are really high quality and glass. You never know when you might make your own mix 😀 See! I came in handy for once… 

I am planning on posting one of my favorite snacks next week, with a chai twist. Any guesses from the photo below?

    Chia Tea used to be my rocket fuel. I always used to get a soy chia at the gas station next to my boarding school during high school!! Ha! That was before I knew or cared about nutrition or had ANY of my stomach problems! NowI know better and… Will DIEEEEEEEE if I drink soy. LOL! But this spice mix can STILL work its way into my life! :)

    do you know what allspice could also be known as? trying to think if there is any international equivalent.
    I happen to be in love with chai, and making my own would save me so much money! #poorstudent

    I made this recipe and found the spices to float around my cup and had a gritty texture, did I do something wrong? Other than that, taste was fantastic!

      Try running the blend through a coffee bean grinder or spice grinder for a finer texture. I find it helps. I can even grind up green tea leaves for a matcha powder consistency. I am making this chai right now, I’m in love with the flavour but the coffee shops add too much junk to it so I’ve haven’t had in the longest time. :)

    about how much of the chai spice do you use in a recipe? like how many teaspoons would you add to a quick bread or muffin recipe?

    I just made this Chai mix and love it! I upped the cardamom in mine as that’s my favourite flavour. I’ve made a hot chocolate with it and it’s absolutely gorgeous! I hope to find many more uses for it now!

    Made this today but added 1/2 tsp fennel seeds to the mix. Put it in my almond milk hot chocolate and added a bit of vanilla essence at the end, delicious!! Thanks for such a great recipe! I love spice blends!!!
