Chai Flavored Hot Chocolate 

If you’ve ever gone to Starbucks and ordered a chai tea latte, then you may know what this tastes like. EXCEPT, you are adding a touch of hot chocolate to it. Don’t be turned off by how many ingredients are in this recipe.

All of them are important to making it super delicious. I like to make a big batch of this chai chocolate for the weekend and then I just warm it up as I can.

Keep in mind that you can use only milk instead of the milk and heavy cream combo if you are looking for a healthier alternative. If you are trying to make it a little healthier, then you can also sub the milk for plant-based milk to make it vegan or vegetarian.

I love experimenting with different types of milk because you never know what will taste the most delicious. If you have a milk allergy, give something like cashew milk a try.
