Every Fall, I usually put together a little DIY spice blend to use for the season. I’ve done pumpkin pie spice and apple pie spice. They last forever and are so much easier to make at home than to buy — not to mention far cheaper. Additionally, you likely already have all the spices in your pantry!

For years, I thought chai was a proprietary blend for teas and that you can only get the chai flavor if you buy chai tea and steep it to use in recipes. That’s why I was sad I couldn’t make my own dirty chai lattes at home. Well, I’ve clearly wised up and figured out that the chai spice blend is actually able to be concocted from spices that are already in my pantry!

You will find so many ways to use this DIY chai spice blend. In fact, I’ve already used it in two recipes that I’ll be sharing on the blog soon! One of which is a decadently rich brownie that you won’t want to miss!

  1. I’m thinking to keep the Chai spice in the office. Can I just add it into a regular coffee latte? Will that work?

    1. Yes, definitely! You might get specks of the spices in there though but totally fine to mix all together!

  2. So happy to find this blend. I have question. If addded dry milk to this to make chai latte mix (my dad absolutely adores getting his chai lattes at the local bookstore in his town) how much dry milk should I use. Bought some if this kinda mix for my dad at fall festival he loved but he’s out and I want to make some for him for Christmas this year

    1. I would add as much dry milk as you think he would drink..such as, if dry milk’s equivalent for 1 cup of milk is 1 cup, then I’d add 1 cup of dry milk. I haven’t done this before so I’m totally guessing here.

    1. I would say try 1/2 teaspoon first and do it to taste and mix it really well – you will want to make sure it dissolves otherwise it’ll be gritty. If it doesn’t dissolve as well as you’d like, heat it up over the stovetop.
