May 31, 2012

Summer is sneaking up on us, bringing hot weather, sunny days and refreshing cool drinks. When you’re looking to sip on a cold beverage, skip high-fat, high-sugar drinks and choose a healthier option.

We introduced our Chisto recipe a few weeks ago and today we’re sharing the nutrition facts on why it’s a healthier chai and explaining how to make a cold version.

Whip up a glass for yourself today and enjoy the fresh flavor without worrying about your waistline.

-       4 oz. non-fat milk

-       1 tsp. sugar-free vanilla syrup

Using your Capresso teaC100, fill the kettle with 16 ounces of water (minimum line) and set the control to Black Tea (212° F). Once water has reached boiling, place 1 chai tea bag into a cup and pour 4 ounces of water into the cup.  Remove tea bag after approximately 5 minutes, adjust steeping time to your preference. Place cup in refrigerator and chill.

Using your froth PLUS, place the frothing disk in the frothing pitcher and ensure it is securely snapped inside the bottom of the frothing pitcher. Add milk and sugar-free vanilla syrup to frothing pitcher and press Cold button. Wait for frother to automatically shut off. Remove cup from refrigerator once fully chilled and pour frothed milk over chilled chai tea. Add ice and garnish with grated nutmeg and cinnamon, if desired.
