Warming, comforting and caffeine free Chai Mix. This is our drink of choice throughout winter, due to its soothing nature and healing properties from the spices.
Spices have been used for centuries around the world for their healing properties but are often overlooked in Western society when we consider what a healthy diet is. From aiding digestion to lowering blood sugar to fighting inflamation and generating a boost of antioxidants, spices are incredibly restorative.
On top of all this, they are delicious. Having a mug of chai is a treat for the body and soul.
With our recipe below, you can simply mix all the ground spices and leave in a jar in the pantry. Feel free to amend the spices to your preference and taste.
Around 35 servings per jar;
