HealthFUL Chai Tea

Although chai tea has some very healthful qualities, if ordered from a coffee shop or restaurant it can often be packed with lots of added sugar and fat, causing it to lose many of its benefits (a grande Chai Tea Latte from Starbucks made with skim milk has over 200 calories and 42 grams of sugar!). I personally love chai tea, and although I will treat myself with one from Starbucks every once in awhile, this healthful alternative also satisfies my craving. All you need is bagged chai tea (Tazo makes a great one, and it’s even the brand of tea used at Starbucks!), water and skim milk or soymilk. Heat one cup water until desired temperature. Steep tea bag for about 3-5 minutes. Add 1/4 cup milk of choice. For those of you who like it a little sweeter, add one packet of artificial sweetener. For a stronger tea, steep two bags instead of one. You can serve this hot or add ice after steeping for a cold treat!
