DIY Blended Spiced Chai Frappe

Wondering how to make your own Spiced Chai Frappe at home? Do it yourself with Big Train’s Spiced Chai Tea Latte Mix!

Chai, meaning “tea” in many parts of the world, originated in ancient India. It is traditionally made with rich black tea, heavy milk, sweetener, and a combination of cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, and pepper. Not only does it have an irresistibly spicy flavor, but it’s also a natural digestive aid. Even better, Big Train’s Spiced Chai Tea Latte mix is gluten free, low fat, and uses no hydrogenated oils! If you love chai as a drink in chilly weather, then you’ll love it as a blended spiced chai frappe or simply poured over ice as a refreshing thirst quencher in warmer weather!

For the DIY enthusiast, you can easily make spiced chai frappes at home by simply adding milk or water and ice. Home baristas can purchase Big Train Spiced Chai Tea Latte Mix here. At just $6.50, it yields ten 8 fl oz servings.

Big Train has a great reputation for delicious chai mixes with coffeehouses and restaurants. Big Train also offers foodservice operators a bulk-size 3.5 lb Spiced Chai Tea Latte Mix here so that you’ll never run out! Just add milk or water and ice to this product and you’ll have a delicious iced chai frappe in seconds. We realize you can’t always get out to your favorite cafe, so Big Train also offers several retail chai products. For all chai latte mix flavor options go here.

If you love good-for-you, good-for-the-soul beverages, then you will love Big Train Spiced Chai Tea Latte mix! So DIY! Do it yourself and create a delicious chai frappe today.

Green Baked Cinnamon Apple Frappe

Guest Post by TheCavery.com

Cinnamon Apple Frappe RecipeThis is very exciting for me because I wanted to share this new coffee protein drink I’m diggin. It is called Fit Frappé by Big Train. Have you heard of this? It’s basically the same powder you use to make your frappés but it has protein AND caffeine (bOinGk!). The taste is amazing for the large amount of protein (20 g for 16oz!) and if you include it in your green smoothie like I did, it fills you up better than a protein bar with 20g of protein (yucky!). AND it wakes you right up! I highly recommend it!

Easy Horchata Recipe: Ready in 89 Seconds

So, You Want An Easy Horchata Recipe?

Easy Horchata RecipeTraditionally, homemade horchata recipes have required many ingredients and multiple steps, including the use of your hot stove (which defeats the purpose if you’re craving a refreshing horchata drink). Sure, you could break out all those items and spend an hour preparing it all. Or, you could use a horchata recipe that has the drink in your hand, in about 89 seconds. And the best part is you won’t be sacrificing taste, even though your horchata drink is painfully easy to make!

How To Make Horchata, The Easy Way

16 fl oz Blended Horchata Drink

1st Step of Horchata Recipe
Get Big Train’s VIVAZ Horchata Mexican Inspired Drink Mix

At this time, Big Train’s VIVAZ Horchata Mexican Inspired Drink Mix is only available for business customers. If you’re a business, please keep reading. If you’re a consumer, please check out the Big Train Store Locator, to find a location near you that serves our products. Or, you can request that your favorite drink shop carry Big Train products.

2nd Step of Horchata Recipe
Add 1 Scoop of Horchata Mix to 5 oz of Milk or Water

Note: 1 scoop is about 3 oz. Your horchata recipe can go one of two ways here. Both will be delicious, but using milk will produce a richer, creamier drink. The choice is yours. Feel free to experiment with each option, and take note of the differences.
