Copycat Vanilla Soy Chai




One of my favorite drinks at Starbucks is the Grande size, Vanilla Soy Chai. But, wow, has it ever gotten expensive! I want to say when I started drinking this drink about 10 years ago it was $3.75, which was expensive but now it is $4.75! Probably a lot like you, I don't always think about the cost when I go in. I have a Starbucks card, I faithfully reload my card about twice a month and I spend what's on there and reload again. 

Now that we are trying to live on quite a bit less but not give up the "good life", I was determined to make the drink at home and make it taste like my favorite coffeehouse drink. To my surprise, it was very simple and economical! 

HERE'S the Video where I show you how simple it is to make!

I'll give you a little breakdown of the expense. 

  • Soymilk is $2.98 for a half gallon and I use 1/8 of the gallon for the drink, so .37 in milk
  • Vanilla syrup is 12.2 oz for $3.98 and I use a little under 1 oz. for a drink, .33 in syrup
  • Tazo Chai tea mix is $3.28 for 32 oz. and I use 1/4 in my drink,  .90 for Chai mix
That is a whopping $1.60 for a Grande size drink! Compare that to $4.75 for the same thing at Starbucks! A savings of $3.15 for doing it myself and it is a drink you can drink hot or over ice. 

YOU can do this YOURSELF with whatever drink you like. And if you don't get it right the first time, keep trying! Pretty soon you will and you'll be saving money just like us. 

Thanks for visiting today and come back soon!
