This recipe for Chai Spiced Hot Chocolate combines the best of both worlds. I love the warming and comforting effect of a great Chai Latte and the intensity of a hot chocolate. A Chai Spiced Hot Chocolate is the perfect drink on a cold day, wrapped up in a warm blanket. Around the holiday season we tend to indulge in our cravings. For most of us when we get a craving, it’s for sugar, especially in the afternoon or right after dinner. This Chai Spiced Hot Chocolate will satisfy your sweet tooth without creating a dramatic spike in your blood sugar levels. The best way to get a quick pick me up while enjoying the sweetness of life.
