Chai Tea Gelato Recipe
Not only is Chai great to drink, but how about it in a gelato!
2 cups of milk (I used 1%)
2 cups of heavy whipping cream
3/4 cup granulated sugar
4 tea bags of chai tea
Heat the milk until it is just about to boil, stirring frequently. Slightly reduce the heat, add the tea bags and continue stirring for 5 minutes. Turn off the heat and remove the tea bags, squeezing them to extract the remaining milk before discarding. Stir in the heavy whipping cream and chill in the refrigerator for a few hours until cold.
When freezing the mixture (in an ice cream maker), it will not have as much of an increase in volume as a typical ice cream – this produces a denser consistency more like gelato. Immediately move the frozen mixture to the freezer for 3-4 hours to harden.
This makes about 8 servings and if you are counting calories, it works out to 206 calories per serving.
