Chai Spiced coffee creamer ~~ Coffeemate (I think it was them) used to make chai spiced coffee creamer and I loved it!! I don't know if they stopped making it or my local stores no longer carry it - I've checked all 5. Does anyone know how to make this so I could keep it all week? Thanks!
Mindy from Oregon
1-1/2 cups nondairy powdered creamer
1 cup confectioner's sugar
1/2 cup instant nonfat dry milk powder
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1. In a medium sized bowl, combine creamer, sugar, milk powder, cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, pepper, cloves and allspice. Spoon mixture into storage container and cover.
2. To serve, stir 1 tablespoon of creamer into 1 cup hot coffee.
Well, Im not sure how it would work out, ( it would probably thin down your creamer a bit, but if you dont mind that at all) I would just simmer cinnamon sticks, whole cloves and powdered ginger in 3 cups of water for 1/2 an hour then I would add sugar ( I would say 3/4-1 cup) then simmer again until it reduced to 1/2 a cup or so then I would strain it, let it cool, stir in a tablespoon of vanilla ( I use imitation) and add it to the creamer or half and half.
I make chai tea like that all the time and keep it in the fridge for up to a week and a half. ( the only difference is I add 10-12 tea bags) The 1/2 cup amount of that is enough to flavor 7-8 cups of milk. I usually use 2 cinnamon sticks . And I use 1-2 teaspoons of whole cloves, and 1/2-1 teaspoon of ginger.
(I just buy the cheap Mexican spices that are sold in a bag for this, so they end up costing $3 for all the spices and they last me through 5-6 batches)
Since it would just be a trial thing, I would recommend making a batch of the concentrate and then just mixing a bit of it in with the cup of coffee you were drinking to make sure you like it before you waste a whole container of creamer by mixing it in.
I hope this helps. :)
thank you and I will try it!
