French Press Chai Latte

Nothing compares to a hot drink on a cold day and truthfully I love a good french press coffee over our regular ol’ coffee pot. One hot drink that I love hot, is a chai and being that I live in a small town it’s not easy to get daily and truthfully, if you live on a budget, it’s not ideal to buy everyday ( or twice a day if you’re me).
I created a simple version at home, that’s tasty, budget friendly and easy to make in the comfort of your own home.
for starters, you will need a french press. This is my favorite.
PREP TIME: 3 MINUTES
COOK TIME: 7 MINUTES
TOTAL TIME: 10 MINUTES
SERVINGS: 2-4

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 1/4 cups milk or none dairy milk can be used
  • 1/3 cup dark roast coffee, ground course
  • 4 chai tea bags
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoon coconut oil (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Heat your milk in a kettle in a pot over high heat with the coconut oil and honey.
  2. While the milk is heating add your coffee to the french press.
  3. Tear open the chai tea bags and empty the contents into your french press.
  4. When the milk is boiling, take it off the heat and pour it into your french press.
  5. Stir the contents well, then add your lid and let steep for 5-7 minutes.
  6. Press down on your handle (this may take a little jiggling to push it all the way to the bottom).
  7. Pour your latte into mugs and drink up!

So easy, right?! I hope you enjoy this recipe for the winter season that’s upon us!
