It's no secret that I often need a pickmeup during the day. Sometimes it's a snack, sometimes it's just a beloved ice cold Diet Coke, but other times I need a little something more. Enter: Starbucks Iced Chai
I'm actually drinking one as I type!
However, this little number can have a bit of a pricetag. While it's necessary sometimes, other times I can't just swing $4 unnecessarily for a drink that's gone in 5 minutes and sometimes, quite frankly, has a bit too much ice. (Take that Starbucks!)
So, I've started to make my own! Not how you'd think though. I don't really like the Chai concentrate that Starbucks sells, so instead I got the Walmart kind:
Often times, they even sell it in TWO-PACKS!
So basically the way it works is that you put ice in a big cup (or Tervis Water Bottle if you're me...to-go...obviously!) add as much chai juice as you want--I do about a 1:1 ratio--and then top it off with milk. SO EASY right?!
Yes, so easy. And cheap. One box of chai concentrate runs you about $4 and makes about 6 drinks when you add the milk in with it. Not a bad deal right. Usually too, the twofer pack is around $7! That's more than 10 drinks plus the cost of milk and you will still run WAY less than anything Starbucks could come up with!
Do you chai? What's your go-to drink? (Sorry for all those coffee lovers, that's just not my game!)
