Vanilla Almond Spiced Chai
November 6th, 2017—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed.
Trader Joe’s Vanilla Spiced Almond Chai is our non-traditional take on an oh-so-traditional beverage. It begins, according to custom, with black tea and garam masala spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, allspice, and black pepper. That’s where our nod to tradition ends, and our yearning to innovate takes over. Rather than dairy, we’ve used coconut cream and almond paste. This yields the same creamy, rich result, and also makes this Chai a vegan option. And we’ve also ensured this is a good source of protein – with 16 grams in every bottle – by adding pea protein powder to the blend. (No, it doesn’t taste like peas; yes, peas provide protein.)
Drink this Vanilla Spiced Almond Chai directly from the bottle, pour it into a mug and heat it a bit, or combine two parts Chai with one part Cold Brew Concentrate for a protein-packed pick me up whenever you need a little boost. We’re selling each 16 fluid ounce bottle for $2.99, every day. That’s an eye-opening price for a unique drink you’ll find only in the refrigerated case at your neighborhood Trader Joe’s.
