The smoothy, yummy goodness of Starbucks iced soy chai latte's---magnificent.
The perfect blend of sweetness and chill that tastes so good upon touching your lips.
Yet, so very, very bad on your wallet. [For real. Is it just me or is paying $5-$7 for drinks just AB-SURD?! I digress...]
So, a few weeks ago my sister cheerily called me proclaiming the goodness of do-it-yourself at home latte's for so.much.cheaper.
Upon hearing how freakin' easy it was to make them yourself when Starbucks charges you out the bum-hole, I ran to the grocery store so fast to snatch up the two simple ingredients myself.
Did you hear that, TWO. Just two.
Get yourself some soy milk. If you'd prefer...use regular milk. I happen to like the taste of soy milk and the creaminess, particularly in this drink.
Then, your grocery stores SHOULD have the chai tea concentrate [liquid form and comes in box-like thing] in the tea aisle. Tazo is the brand that Starbucks uses. Oregon brand also works well and is quite yummy, too. The nice thing is, you can often find sugar-free versions, de-caf, etc....
Now for the easy part.
Fill a glass with ice. Mix 1 part of the tea, with 1 part of the milk.
Add straw (if you're like me).
chug sip the deliciousness.
