Try This Chai

If you’re in the mood for a new iced beverage, this week’s recipe for Iced Almond Chai will transport to you to the exotic Far East. It will also save you calories and money compared to an iced extravaganza from the local coffee bar. Plus it offers some cancer-fighting ingredients both familiar and maybe not.

The list of spices is basic to many Asian dishes — and some research shows possible cancer-preventive effects from them. Cardamom, a staple of Indian-style tea and other heavenly subcontinent dishes, has a sweet yet almost lime-tinged scent. Cinnamon and cloves are also used in south Asian fare. Liquorice-flavored anise is used in Chinese cuisine and black peppercorns give this beverage a sharp little bite.

The black tea blends beautifully with almond milk. Tea contains phytochemicals that a growing number of research studies are finding to be possible cancer inhibitors. Even if you can’t find special chai teabags, you can still just use black teabags for this unusual summer drink. Agave syrup sweetens in much smaller amounts than honey or sugar and comes from the agave cactus.
