Happy Wednesday! It’s time for another Tik Tok-inspred drink recipe: Cookie Butter Chai Latte! If you remember the super popular Brown Sugar Oat Milk Shaken Espresso Latte post, I said that I saw the concept of the drink on Tik Tok before Starbucks released it and I decided to try to make it at home! Its quickly becoming one of my most popular drink recipes on the site and is kind of going viral on Pinterest right now!
This drink isn’t on the Starbucks menu, but it is sort of a “secret menu” item I saw on Tik Tok and had to try it at home. The woman said to ask for a grande iced chai with brown sugar syrup and oat milk. They apparently use the Tazo Chai Concentrate you can purchase in some stores (apparently, I haven’t seen it yet). So today we are making our own strong brewed chai, using the brown sugar cinnamon syrup recipe from this post and topping it all off with oat milk. Its really so easy, but tastes really yummy!
So what is cookie butter? Greg didn’t even know! Wikipedia says it “is a food paste made primarily from speculoos cookie crumbs (known as Biscoff in the United States), fat (such as vegetable oil, condensed milk or butter), flour, and sugar. The ingredients are mixed until it becomes spreadable on a sandwich.”
Basically its like peanut butter but instead of being made of peanuts its a creamy butter made of cookies. And it is AMAZING. My uncle sent us a jar when he used to live in Belgium and I’ve loved it ever since.Print
Cookie Butter Iced Chai Latte
- Total Time: 20 minutes
- Yield: 2 lattes
An iced chai oat milk latte inspired by the flavours of speculoos cookie butter!
- 2 chai tea bags
- 1 cup boiling water
- oat milk
Brown Sugar Syrup:
- 4 tbsp lightly packed brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 6 tbsp water
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- In a mason jar or mug, add the tea bags and water and let steep about 10 minutes.
- In a small frying pan or pot on the stove, add the syrup ingredients and heat on medium-high, whisking to combine. Once it starts simmering, lower the heat to medium-low and simmer about 3-5 minutes, stirring frequently, until sugar has completely dissolved and syrup has thickened just slightly. Remove from the heat and set aside.
- To the hot tea, add 2 tbsp of brown sugar syrup and stir until combined.
- Fill your serving glasses 3/4 full with ice. Divide the chai tea mixture between the glasses, then top with oat milk. Enjoy!
- Prep Time: 20 minutes
unfortunately, the Tazo Chai concentrate has honey in it (sigh). I haven’t found another replacement so I’m excited to try this recipe, thanks Liv!
