Starbucks Chai Tea Latte Copycat Recipe

Chai Tea Copy Cat

I am so over spending $$$$ at Starbucks. Don’t get me wrong I love a good opportunity to take a picture with my Starbucks cup but shoot… a girls gotta budget and that means cutting daily spending at Starbucks.

Andrew recently got us a espresso machine… which has saved my butt! But I still was missing my Chai Tea lattes that I would get from Starbucks. I finally found out how they make it and you can buy all the ingredients at Target?! SAYY WHAT!

You can make a Starbucks Copy Cat Chai Tea Latte is 4 easy steps!

Step 1: Put your desired amount of ice in your choice of  cup, I use our mason jars when I am home and then a to go plastic cup when I am on the go.

Step 2: Fill the cup up half way with the Chai mix.

Step 3:  Fill the remaining cup up with your choice of milk. I prefer Vanilla Almond Milk.

Enjoy!

My morning “me time” just got even sweeter!

This post has been sponsored by Coffee-mate® Creamers. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

We are halfway to the weekend and I am so ready to unwind. Do you live for the weekends like me? I think I look forward to the weekend when Monday morning arrives, ha! This weekend I could not be more excited to relax and sip on some coffee featuring my new favorite creamers.

Are you a coffee lover? Do you like to add a little sweetness to your coffee? Well, guess what, Coffee-mate® Creamers just came out with 3 new dessert-inspired flavors at Walmart and I am obsessed. Oh my yum. One thing you should know about me, and if you don’t, now you’ll know… I LOVE to shop whether that be for groceries, clothes, or basics, and Walmart is one my go-to places. They have affordable prices, variety and all the goods that make them a one-stop shop for any needs on your list. And they happen to carry the aforementioned creamers, too.

Coffee-mate® Creamers just released a line of Dessert Creamers in Coconut Caramel Latte creamer, Toasted Marshmallow Mocha, and Cookies & Cream flavors. Talk about melting in your mouth!  I may be a rare breed but I am not a “black coffee” type gal–give me all the sweets to add to my morning coffee and I’ll be happy! You can head to your local Walmart and purchase one of these 3 scrumptious flavors, heck get all three! You can find them in the dairy section. Oh! And be sure to look for the Coffee-mate in-store sampling event happening May 10-13th, too.

If I could describe each of these Coffee-mate® Creamers in one word…

Coconut Caramel Latte- Devine
This one instantly turns your simple, at-home coffee into a trendy and expensive-tasting latte. The coconut and caramel are the perfect compliment to each other. And the flavors kind of remind me of my favorite Girl Scout cookie.

Toasted Marshmallow Mocha- Savory
This creamer reminds me of summer nights by the firepit. It is the perfect amount of sweet!

Cookies & Cream- Delectable
Like ice-cream in your coffee–I just can’t get enough of this flavor! This one might be my favorite.

My weekend morning routine consists of this gal waking up to the fresh smell of the coffee pot going- thanks to Andrew. When I smell that, my feet are on the ground and I am up, and now that I have Coffee-mate® Creamers at the tip of my fingers, I get even more excited to wake up!

I choose to start my weekend on a positive note by creating “me time.” Whether that is reading a book (I honestly had to start my book over because it has been so long since I have picked it up), scrolling through social media (my guilty pleasure), or simply taking a deep breath by looking out the window, I find time to do one of those many things with my coffee in hand.

I am a huge advocate for creating “me time” I sometimes am the WORST at making that time for myself but when I do, boy do I love it. Balance is key on the weekends for me. That consists of just enough coffee to get my day started!

Is it just me or are all these colors and images on the packaging an eye-catcher? The packaging just makes my mouth water…

One thing I am excited about is to try these is in my iced coffee when the weather gets warmer here in KC. It really has not felt like Spring here, which is super disappointing.

Head to your nearest Walmart location to purchase the newest creamers added to the Coffee-mate® Creamers family. And head here  for even more inspiration and details about the new Coffee-mate Dessert Creamers!
