(Better than Starbucks) Iced Chai Latte

(Better than Starbucks) Iced Chai Latte ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #iced #chai #latte #recipe

The classic Indian form of spiced tea, chilled … this is a creamy iced chai latte with extra flavor from whole ginger, anise, cloves and cinnamon sticks, sweetened with honey and stevia and topped with light whipped cream, a sprinkle of nutmeg and a little drizzle of caramel. I decided that in my Indian cooking […]


Double Chai Pear Cake

Double Chai Pear Cake ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #pear #dessert #cake #recipe

What do you do when you have a bunch of ugly (but delicious) fresh pears to use? Bake a cake! A whole wheat, low sugar pear cake heavily spiced with the flavors of chai–something you could eat for breakfast OR dessert. You see, my friend has a sick pear tree. It saddens me greatly to see […]


Cinnamon Cranberry Chai Zucchini Bread

Cinnamon Cranberry Chai Zucchini Bread ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #chai #zucchini #bread #recipe

Adapted from Simple Bites’ Best Zucchini Bread Ever When is the season where cinnamon and cranberries and hot chai intersect with zucchini? Sadly, I know, it doesn’t exist … these things never coincide. Cinnamon, perhaps, because cinnamon is an all-season sort of spice (but especially beloved in the fall) and chai too is welcomed in […]


St. Brendan’s Irish Cream Chai

Irish Cream Chai ~ Sumptuous Spoonfus #Hot #Tea #Cocktail

Do you ever wake up on a weekend morning, stumble into the kitchen for your morning beverage and discover that there is no milk in the house? If milk is not a requirement for your morning drink, then it’s not a big deal I suppose, but if you DO want milk and you happen to […]

Cinnamon Chai Banana Bread ~ A tea-lover's #banana bread #recipe from Sumptuous Spoonfuls

An idea came upon me … I wanted to combine two of my most-loved culinary delights: chai and banana bread. For a bit, I pondered, how to do such a thing. Should I somehow steep a strong mixture of chai and add it to the bread? The answer that came to me was pure simplicity. […]

Laced with chai, cinnamon, vanilla and chunks of sweet, juicy pear with the crunch of candied walnuts, these whole wheat muffins are a great way to start your day.

Pumpkin Chai Apricot Granola … & Interval Training

Pumpkin Chai Granola with Apricots ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #chai #granola #recipe

I’ve discovered a secret … okay, it’s not a great epiphany or anything, but I’ve found a way to motivate myself to exercise on the weekends when I’d much rather relax, cook a lot of wonderful tasting things, hang out with my foodie friends (in person and/or online) and drink tea and wine. See, here’s […]


Apple Cinnamon Chai Bread Pudding

Apple Cinnamon Chai Bread Pudding ~ from Sumptuous Spoonfuls #apple #bread pudding #recipe

with rum-soaked raisins and toasted pecans I’m certain that things happen in my life that never really occur in other people’s lives. Does your teenage daughter ever decide to make a big batch of cinnamon rolls, eat a couple, then decide they didn’t have enough cinnamon sugar in them and abandon them? I wanted to […]


Make your Own Pumpkin Spice Chai Latte

Pumpkin Spice Chai Tea Latte

with low-fat, non-dairy, and low-sugar options I have some friends from India that I met in California. Many years ago, they introduced me to chai tea–a sweet, milky drink spiced with exotic Indian spices–and it has since become a  necessity in my morning routine. Some people can’t start their day without coffee–I can’t start my […]
