So I went ahead and mixed it up, and added it to a cup of hot (decaf) tea. It's AWESOME!
Here's the recipe I used:
1 cup non-fat dry milk powder
2 cups powdered Coffee Mate (French vanilla flavor - I didn't have plain on hand)
1-1/2 cups white sugar
2 tsp ground ginger
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp allspice
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp cloves
2 tsp ground cardamom
1/2 tsp white pepper
In a large bowl, mix all of the above together. In a food processor (or a Magic Bullet, if you're me) blend ingredients one cup at a time until it is a fine powder (this step evenly distributes the milk and sugar, and eliminates pesky chunks of Coffee Mate). Store in an air-tight container.
To make chai, add two teaspoons (or a big ol' tablespoon full if you're crazy like me) to a cup of hot tea.
This recipe is going to save me about a zillion dollars at
