Homemade Chai Spice
This recipe contains instructions for making your own chai spice, however, you can definitely use a store bought made mix. Homemade chai spice is much cheaper and sometimes better, because you can use fresh spices and grind them yourselves if you have a spice grinder. This recipe make extra chai spice so you can keep it on hand for other recipes.
Ingredients you will need
- frozen blueberries
- full fat coconut milk
- raw unsalted cashews
- lemon juice
- sea salt
- maple syrup or agave syrup
- vanilla extract
How to make this recipe
The first step is to prepare the chai spice by combining all the spices together. Then, puree the thawed blueberries.
In a full sized blender, combine the coconut milk, cashews, chai spice, lemon juice, sea salt, agave nectar and vanilla extract. Blend on high until smooth (about 30 seconds if using a high powered blender).
Then, pour the coconut milk mixture into your popsicle mold, filling only half way. Next, pour several spoonfuls of the blueberry puree into the molds. Finally, pour the remaining coconut milk mixture into the molds. To get that swirled marble effect, a chopstick can be gently swirled in the mixture.
Insert the popsicle sticks and place in the freezer for 6-8 hours.
Tips to make this recipe
- Blend the cashews really well- you want them to be really smooth to create that perfect creamy texture. A high powered blender is really helpful here.
- Use Full Fat Coconut milk - the fat content will ensure you get a well rounded and creamy texture. The coconut flavour isn't really detectable (to me, anyway).
- Freeze in a good popsicle mold- I absolutely love this mold from Onxy Stainless Steel. However, find one that you like and use that.
- Make you own chai spice - it's easier and cheaper to make your own chai spice. I have a recipe for homemade chai spice below.
