Life can get hectic, but you don’t have to let it get you down. Let’s face it, we can all use a little bit of “me time” and I’ve got the perfect way for you to give yourself a little bit of the downtime that you deserve.
Grab one of those cool adult coloring books, the ingredients to bake these delicious Vanilla Chai Tea Latte Cupcakes and let your creative side shine. Baking can relieve stress and you get a tasty treat out of it. While your cupcakes are in the oven, you can color and binge watch your favorite show. Both are a great way to relax and the cupcakes will be a special, yet tasty treat!
These Vanilla Chai Tea Latte Cupcakes are one of my favorites, not only because they are absolutely delicious, but because they are super simple to make too. You know me, I’m not all about sharing those complicated recipes and this one literally starts with a french vanilla box cake mix and Oregon Chai® tea.
I know, I know. You’re like “What?? She’s putting tea in cupcakes?” My father in law said the same thing with an odd look on his face when he saw me pouring the tea into the mixer. But, trust me here. The tea is what really makes this tasty dessert stand out and you’re going to love it!
The awesome thing is that you can grab your coloring book, the ingredients for the cupcakes and practically anything else you need right at Meijer. The Oregon Chai tea might be a bit hard to find so make sure you look at the top and the bottom of the shelves in the tea aisle. I almost missed it, but then saw The Original, Sugar-Free, and Slightly Sweet varieties on the top shelf, after my third walk through that aisle!
Indulging doesn’t have to leave you feeling guilty because chai tea lattes offer a better-for-you alternative with gourmet and trendy flavor profiles. Chai tea lattes are moving mainstream and are really increasing the quality of the tea-drinking experience with on-trend flavors and indulgent product formats. Head over to the Oregon Chai site for some recipe inspiration and you’ll see just what I mean. You can find additional recipes along with an mPerks offer here.
You’re going to love Oregon Chai and I’ve got some great news for you. The Original and Slightly Sweet flavors are organic and non-GMO project verified! I will bet that you didn’t see that one coming, did you?
