Chai Me! Pumpkin Spice Chai Latte Mix

chaiI’m a big fan of Big Train Vanilla Chai latte mix. And per usual, if I really like something that is store bought I’ll have a go at making a homemade version of it. This homemade vanilla chai tea powder recipe is absolutely divine and my husband loves it too. I make it using hot water as the base and top it off with almond milk. Since fall is upon us I couldn’t resist adding some pumpkin pie spice to the chai tea latte recipe, but that’s just my personal preference. ‘Tis the season :)

    Makes 46 servings (~2.5 Tablespoons = 1 serving)


2 cups nonfat dry milk powder (I used Bob’s Red Mill)
1 cup powdered non-dairy creamer (I used Western Family)
2.5 cups organic evaporated cane juice
1.5 cups unsweetened instant tea
2 tsps ground ginger
2 tsps ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground cloves
1 tsp ground cardamom
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1.5 tsp pumpkin pie spice
20 vanilla sweet drops (if you don’t have these you could sub half of the powdered creamer for vanilla flavored powdered creamer).


Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. Working with about half the mixture at a time, process in a food processor until fine and smooth. Store in a cool dry place in an airtight container.

To use, stir two heaping tablespoons into 8-10 ounces of hot water. I like to top mine off with almond milk. I hope you enjoy this copycat homemade big train chai recipe with a hint of pumpkin as much as my husband and I do!
