Skip Starbucks and make your own Iced Vanilla Chai Latte at home! This simple drink is so easy to make, and oh so refreshing!
Even though I make all of these fun fruit tea drinks, I don’t consider myself a big tea drinker. At least, I didn’t consider myself a big tea drinker. Now I am a convert. I am experimenting with all of these different types of tea and accompanying flavors and I really love it. Recently, I jumped on the chai bandwagon — I know I am like six years late, but better late than never, right?
My favorite is this iced vanilla chai latte! I am not even sure I can even call this a recipe. The measurements below are meant to be a guide, adjust them as necessary for your personal preferences.
Ingredients Needed for an Iced Vanilla Chai Latte
Skip Starbucks, because it’s so easy to make an iced chai tea latte at home! Here’s all you’ll need for this recipe:
- Strongly Brewed Chai Tea
- Milk, coconut milk, or half and half
- Vanilla extract
- Sweetener if desired such as honey, simple syrup, monkfruit, coconut sugar, or maple syrup
- Optional: whipped cream or cinnamon
Do I Have to Add Ice?
Of course not! You’re welcome to make a classic vanilla chai if desired.
How to Make an Iced Chai Tea Latte
Simply brew your favorite brand of Chai Tea very strongly. You can achieve this by adding more tea bags or by allowing it to steep longer.
Combine the strongly brewed tea with milk, vanilla and sweetener of your choice if desired. Pour over ice and top with whipped cream and cinnamon if you wish.
Tips for Making an Iced Vanilla Chai
- I recommend brewing the tea a little longer than the package says to. You want the chai to be nice and strong so it doesn’t get watered down by the ice or cream.
- For an even more flavorful chai, brew some extra tea ahead of time and freeze it in an ice cube tray. That way, your iced chai tea latte can’t get watered down!
