School has been back in session for 2 weeks, and my students have already started to pick up on the fact that if I'm expected to be functional, I need coffee with me at all times! How this very NON-morning person ended up with one of the primary careers that is associated with super early mornings (teachers & donut makers I'm assuming) will forever be a mystery, but my dream of being a morning person has now been forced upon me.

Honestly the one thing that I look forward to each day, is that first cup of iced coffee (& the 2nd, & the 3rd…but the 1st is the best!). In order to save time in the morning (because I'm a slave to the snooze button), I brew hot coffee at night & then keep it in a carafe in my fridge. In the morning it is wonderful iced coffee, ready & waiting! I like to jazz up my morning treat & right now that is by turning it into an iced chai latte!

Don't worry it only sounds fancy, the iced chai takes 2 seconds to prepare. I have chai latte mix on hand (see recipe below) & combine it with creamer + Born Sweet® Zing™ Zero Calorie Stevia Sweetener. I love using Zing™ Zero Calorie Stevia Sweetener because it is made with real ingredients – nothing artificial (using just the sweetness extracted from the stevia plant!), without any funny aftertaste and ZERO calories. I have used other similar sweeteners for years & I always felt like I was dumping a TON into my drinks, but with Zing, I only need 1 or 2 packets for my giant coffee.

Chai Latte Mix
  • 2 cups unsweetened powdered tea
  • 1 1/4 cups brown sugar
  • 3/4 cups nonfat dry milk powder
  • 1 1/4 cups powdered nondairy creamer
  • 1 1/2 cups powered French vanilla nondairy creamer
  • 2 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 1/4 tsp cardamon
  • 1 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1 tsp allspice
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 1/2 tsp white pepper

I store this dry mix in a mason jar, adding 2 tablespoons + 2 packets Zing™ Zero Calorie Stevia Sweetener for each iced coffee.
I loved getting the opportunity to add some Zing™ to my morning routine. Looking to add some Zing™ to your life?
