Back to School time requires having plenty of kid friendly snacks like Bakery Style Blueberry Muffins, Crunchy Granola Bars, ingredients for Smoothies at the ready. While all of those things are delicious, Back to School is also a time for parents to take a few kid free moments to relax. There. I said it. The kids go back to school to soak up all of the learning, and the parents get a wee little break from parenting for a few hours.
Well, unless you are a homeschool family like we are. Then that little break comes when I get the kiddos working independently on their math. At this point, I take a deep breath and enjoy a steamy mug of tea to relax a bit.
Nothing is more comforting to me than the smell of warm spices like cinnamon, nutmeg and the like–except for maybe the smell of warm caramel apple pie in the oven. Perhaps that’s why I’m such a huge fan of chai tea. Sipping the warmly spiced tea is just so comforting. When my friends at Torani sent me their Caramel and Apple syrups, I knew that a Caramel Apple Chai Latte was in order. Torani syrups boast a vibrant flavor that I find hard to replicate when making simple syrup at home. They’re the experts.
How to make Caramel Apple Chai Latte:
You can be an expert barista at home because making Caramel Apple Chai Latte is easier than it sounds. Simply brew a good cup of chai tea and stir in a few splashes of Torani Caramel and Apple syrups. While the tea is brewing, heat the milk over low heat to simmering–the point when the edges of the pan collect tiny, frothy bubbles. Vigorously whisk the milk to create a light foam on top before pouring it into the cup of tea. If you want an inexpensive way get the milk more foamy, a hand held milk frother works well. Once you’ve added the foamy milk, it’s time to sit back, relax, and enjoy. Unless of course your day could use an extra dose of relaxation. In that case, add some whipped cream and a drizzle of caramel to the mix. You totally deserve it!
