This tastes more like a dessert than breakfast! Top with almonds if you like.

The flavor is dead-on chai and smells delicious! I had to add a bit of sweetener right before eating bc I used unsweetened almond-coconut milk. This definitely requires way more liquid though. I made it exactly as written and ended up having to add another 3/4 cup of milk. I made it the night before around 11pm and when I went to eat it in the morning around 7am, it was one big solid mass that could barely be stirred. With the additional milk though, it was still thick, but a very good consistency. Normally for overnight oats, the standard guideline is a 2:1 ratio of liquid/yogurt to oats, so this recipe would work best with 2 cups of milk. Cardamom is quite pricey, but it definitely makes this recipe so don't leave it out! Read More

This tasted good after I added another cup of milk and heated it in the microwave. It was just too thick for me and I did not like it cold. The spices were good but I think those could have been doubled too. I really liked the cardamom in it. Read More

I used this on regular quick oats on the stove top not overnight and it was delicious! Took 6 minutes from start to finish. Spices were perfect! I added honey for sweetener (probably 2 Tablespoons) and just regular milk. Yum! Read More

This recipe was very good! It took less than one minute the night before to mix everything up and put it in the fridge to be ready for the morning! I threw in some raisins to add texture but other than that I kept everything the same. The only thing I would recommend is to add a fourth of a cup or so more of the milk because it was a little too dry for me as written. Read More

This was delicious! I agree with others that an extra 3/4 cup of milk is needed to make the consistency better. I add a touch of agave to sweeten it skip the cardamom (sub an extra 1/4 tsp of cinnamon) and add a touch of cloves since I love them. It smells and tastes more like an oatmeal cookie to me so next time I'll add raisins too! I portion this out for breakfasts at work and add a few slivered almonds or walnuts on top. So good and filling! This will absolutely remain on my breakfast rotation. Read More

I loved it but I made it without the cardamom. I could not afford it at 12.45 per spice jar (at Walmart for heaven's sake.) It was pretty good anyway but I should have waited till next pay day to spring for it. I'll bet it will be even better then. I'll let you know. Read More

definitely tastes like chai but it needs a sweetener like honey. I made it in 16 oz jars and just filled the milk to the top which made it a bit runny. I also added pineapple which I DO NOT recommend. overall it was a bit bitter but I have another jar with raisins which I think will taste better. Read More

amazing! I put crushed black tea leaves & a bit of black pepper in mine dropped the coconut (I didn't have any) & used milk & honey. It tasted great all the same. I put blueberries on top too. My brother wanted to make him one the next day! Read More
