Chai lovers, this recipe is definitely for you. Because Chocolate Chai Latte Mix combines the warm, rich traditional chai spices of cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, and cloves with a little touch of chocolate to create one very tasty sipping treat. It's truly like drinking warm comfort in a mug!

As I shared in our regular non-chocolate Chai Tea Latte Mix post, I developed my love of chai lattes back in my corporate America days. Given that I don't drink coffee, chai lattes became my go-to drink of choice for all those "hey, let's meet for coffee" meetings that seem to come along with the corporate gig.

Now that I work from home with nary a coffee shop in sight, I love that homemade instant chai latte mix can be always-on-hand to meet my chai cravings. Because with just a few simple ingredients and a quick whirl in the food processor, a batch of this instant mix is ready in a flash. 

Store the mix in the pantry, and when you're ready to enjoy, just combine a few tablespoons in a mug with some hot water and you're good to go with sipping the chocolate chai deliciousness.

Chocolate Chai Latte Mix isn't just great to have on hand for yourself, it also makes a fabulous gift from the kitchen. Spoon some in a cute little jar to share as a great hostess or neighbor Christmas gift, or pop some in those stockings, too!

How to Make Chocolate Chai Latte Mix:

A batch of instant Chocolate Chai Latte Mix is truly easy to make.

Simply combine all the ingredients in a food processor, cover, and process until everything's finely ground and powdery. That's it!

Now yes, you could just simply stir everything together in a bowl and call it done. But processing the ingredients in a food processor helps grind down the mix's spices even more finely so they more readily incorporate into boiling water when making a mugful.

Spoon the mix into an airtight container and store in a cool dry place for up to about 6 months.

Measuring Chocolate Chai Latte Mix Image

To prepare a mugful, dissolve 3 tablespoons of the mix in 1 cup of boiling water, stirring well to get everything well mixed.

Recipe FAQs:
  • How long will Chocolate Chai Latte Mix keep? - When stored in an airtight container, instant Chocolate Chai Latte Mix will keep for up to about 6 months. Do keep moisture out of the mix, however, or it will clump.
  • When making instant Chocolate Chai Latte Mix, can't I just stir the ingredients together instead of processing them in a food processor? - Well yes, when making instant Chocolate Chai Latte Mix you could just simply stir everything together in a bowl and call it done. But processing the ingredients in a food processor helps grind down the mix's spices even more finely so they more readily incorporate into boiling water when making a mugful. We do recommend the step of processing the ingredients together in a food processor.
  • What is instant tea? Is it different than tea in a tea bag or loose leaf tea? - Yes, instant tea is different than loose leaf/tea bags. It's a powder that doesn't require any brewing and is used to make instant iced tea. It's sold in jars/canisters in the coffee/tea aisle of the grocery store, and is labeled as "iced tea." We use Lipton brand unsweetened instant iced tea.
