If you are a Chai Latte lover you must try this stuff. Big Train No Sugar Added Vanilla Chai Mix. Mmmm tea, vanilla, cardamon, ginger, clove. Yum it was soooo good. It's a 99% caffeine-free drink for those of you who can't have the "leaded" stuff and can be served hot or cold...
For a Hot Chai Latte: Empty entire contents of bag into 6 ounces of hot water, stir and serve. It was so good hot. Perfect drink on Christmas morning. It smells and tastes like Christmas.
For an Iced Chai: Add entire contents of bag into 2 ounces of hot water, stir rapidly. Pour over 8 oz. of ice, then add 2 oz. of cold water or milk. I topped mine with Sugar Free Land o Lakes Whipped Cream and a dusting of the dry Chai Mix.
If you want to be really good toss the bag in your blender bottle with a scoop of your favorite protein powder for a Chai Protein Smoothie. Mmmm I'm thinking it would be killer in Protein Ice Cream or Pudding. It's on my list to try.
110 cals per serving (so equivalent to Starbuck's Lattes but much lower in sugars Bux Chai Latte has 40+ grams)
Sugars 2 g. (sweetener is Sucralose, there's also a little non dairy creamer in the mix so that has some sugars.)
Fats 2 g.
Protein 2 g.
Verdict: Yum! A definite keeper in the pantry. Hot is my favorite.
