So, I’m straight up addicted to chai.
I have a dirty chai to wake me up, sip on chai tea at night (with a splash of almond extract), there is a chai almond candle always burning in my house, I sprinkle chai spice on my oatmeal/smoothies/fruit salads… at this rate, I will be naming my firstborn Chai in honor of this delicious flavor.
Since I’m not big on dairy, I am all about banana ice cream. I’ve made it a million times, it’s my go-to sweet tooth fix, but this time around I decided to spice things up a bit (literally) by giving it a chai/almond twist. It was such a yummy mind blow, that I had to share this insane combo with all of you guys!
Fellow chai-lovers, you can thank me later ;). Enjoy!
