We were in the mood for a hot masala chai (aka “chai tea”). We couldn’t find any Vitamix recipes for this, so we decided to adapt a traditional Indian masala chai recipe for the Vitamix. The results were delicious, fast and easy. The machine completely pulverizes the whole spices, heats the milk and even creates a nice foam.
Combine the following ingredients in the Vitamix:
- 2 cups milk
- 2 whole cloves (the spice, not garlic!)
- 1 whole green cardamom pod
- 1/4 tsp ground ginger
- 1 tsp black tea leaves
- 1 tsp sugar (if you like your chai sweet, use 2 tsp)
Use the hot soup setting on your Vitamix; or start at speed 1, increasing to 10 and blending for 6 minutes.
