Hug in a mug

Something about the spiciness of warm chai comforts me. I frequently buy myself chai lattes, usually from Starbucks. I also make myself chai lattes at home.

In mid October I bought a few pie pumpkins and made my own pumpkin puree. I made a loaf of pumpkin bread, a pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving dessert, and the other day I made some pumpkin spice syrup from a recipe over at A Teaspoon and A Pinch.

Now I am armed to make myself a real hug in a mug.

Steep two bags of chai in a mug, leave room for milk. 

Add in a few tablespoons of pumpkin spice syrup.

Mix in some warm milk of choice, I used canned coconut milk for extra creaminess.

Enjoy a warm and comforting mug of tea.

  1. Ohhhhhhhh, that looks amazing. And now I know a brand of chai to buy without having to buy a bunch and hope one of them tastes decent. Thanks for this awesome idea!
