What to Serve with Chai Latte
A chai latte can be everything from a quick pick me up drink in the afternoon, to something to savor with friends at a cafe, to a signature beverage you can serve at a holiday party.
Since this beverage has classic warm flavors, it will pair well with many of your favorite traditional eats. There are both classic options and some healthy options to keep it light.
- Coffee Cake
This White Chocolate Chai Latte recipe is as simple as promised! Just FOUR simple ingredients to make a delicious barista style hot beverage.
In this section I am going to go through a few tips and tricks I use when making this recipe to get the absolute best and most delicious results.
Make sure to scroll to the bottom for the FULL recipe card.
- TAZO Chai Latte Concentrate – This is where the magic happens! The TAZO concentrate makes it so simple to make a drink with as much flavor as one you would buy at a fancy coffee shop.
The TAZO Classic Chai Latte is the warmest, richest tea, featuring the boldest black teas blended with spiced notes of cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, and black pepper.
- White chocolate chips
- Milk– Any variety from whole to fat free will work.
- Heavy cream– This helps the milk to get extra frothy and delicious!
If you want to go classic you can leave the toppings off, however if you want the drink to have a fancy look, or be an extra special treat, these really make the hot tea extra delicious and extra beautiful!
- Whipped cream
- Warm the tea slowly– You don’t want to rush heating the chocolate because it can cause it to seize instead of melting perfectly into the tea. When you heat the tea slowly over low heat, the white chocolate will slowly melt flawlessly into the tea giving it a hint of that sweet delicious flavor.
- Stir constantly- stirring while the chocolate melts helps the chocolate to melt completely into the tea. If you just leave it, you will find it can become gritty or over cooked instead of melting away.
- Use a whisk to froth – If you don’t have a milk frother, you can just use a whisk to incorporate air into the milk as it heats. You want to whisk vigorously and aim for the milk to roughly double in size.
- Pour to taste – The ratio of tea to milk I have in the recipe is personal preference. You can create a warmer, stronger tea taste by adding more tea and less milk, or a milder flavor by adding more milk and less tea. This recipe is very versatile in that regard.
Recipe Short Cuts
If you need to make this recipe, but are extra short on time, here are a few ideas that can help make this recipe even faster! These work especially well if you want to make bigger batches for entertaining, so that you can quickly heat and serve.
- Pre-mix the white chocolate and chai– This can be done up to 24 hours in advance and stored in the fridge. Then reheat when you are ready to serve.
- Melt the chocolate in the microwave– If the standing and stirring make you antsy, you can speed things up by melting the chocolate in the microwave and slowly incorporating it into the warm tea.
- Milk frothing shortcut– To make frothing the milk extra quick, place the milk and cream in a mason jar with plenty of room to spare. Screw the lid on tightly, and shake vigorously until the milk doubles in size. Then heat and serve!
