Iced Chai Tea Latte
Our chai tea latte recipe has become one of the most popular recipes here on Snacks and Sips which got me thinking about other version of it for you guys to enjoy. One of the best that I came up with was a recipe for an iced chai tea latte! Now this is essentially the same as the normally version except you have to let it chill for a bit so that it doesn’t immediately melt all of the ice in the glass. The great part is you can make it ahead of time and really customize the recipe to make it work for you. You can easily double or even triple the recipe or add more or less sweetener depending on your preference. If you want to jazz it up, you can always add a bit of whipped cream and even a drizzle of caramel sauce, white chocolate sauce, or a sprinkle of cinnamon on top.
