Such a cosy warm winter drink! I love your instant mix recipes as they make whipping up something super tasty so easy! I feel like my own at-home barista everyday.

PUL Team - Jan. 20, 2024, 7:21 p.m.

Aw we're so happy to hear, Charlotte! We have some exciting instant mix recipes coming in the future that we can't wait to share 🤗

Charlotte - Jan. 21, 2024, 11:19 a.m.

That sounds amazing! Can't wait! 🙌🏻


Jennifer Branson - Jan. 10, 2024, 8:07 p.m.

Warm and cozy! Perfect for winter weather!


B - Jan. 5, 2024, 4:41 p.m.

Without any vanilla bean, I had to use regular sugar. Still delicious, drank it way too fast. 😊 Will be using with my vanilla oat milk next time, and remaking when I have vanilla beans!

PUL Team - Jan. 5, 2024, 9:02 p.m.

So happy that the latte was enjoyed, B! We hope you love it with the vanilla beans as well 🤗


Lydia - Jan. 3, 2024, 10:55 a.m.

Could you give tips on making a chai latte spiced tea/mix without sugar? I'd like to let people add their own sweetener such as maple syrup or honey.
Thx!

PUL Team - Jan. 4, 2024, 12:35 a.m.

Hey there, Lydia, you can omit the sugar and vanilla sugar from the mix in that case if you'd like! You could add some vanilla bean powder instead. This helps it keep shelf-stable, but it doesn't dissolve into the drink quite as nicely. You could also add some scraped vanilla bean or vanilla extract, but because that adds moisture, the storage time would be reduced significantly.


Virginie - Jan. 1, 2024, 11:18 p.m.

Hello there, I have read the recipe and comments. I think there may be a conversion problem with the coffee: half a cup is much more than 22g... This could explain some of the disappointments.

PUL Team - Jan. 3, 2024, 10:12 a.m.

Hey Virginie, thanks so much for taking the time to share, indeed this was an issue on our end. We'll be measuring and updating the gram amount of the instant coffee granules shortly. Thanks so much for helping us improve what we do!


Dana - Dec. 30, 2023, 8:20 p.m.

Hi, I love your recipes and made this latte mix as a christmas gift. I noticed now though that something must be off with the 22g Coffee. Shouldn't it be 110g? My sister loved the spiced vanille sugar with a touch of coffee anyway.

PUL Team - Jan. 3, 2024, 2:45 a.m.

Hey there, Dana, aw thanks for gifting the latte mix! We're so honoured the recipe was part of the festivities. We double-checked our instant granules' weight and were off by a bit. It's now been updated in the recipe. Our instant coffee granules weigh 62-66 grams per cup which aligns with other nutrition databases. Is there any chance you're weighing coffee beans or a denser coffee mixture? In any case, you're welcome to add more instant coffee if you'd like 😃


Ingrid - Dec. 25, 2023, 7:26 p.m.

I love a lot of recipes from you, but this is definitely too much sugar. Why?

PUL Team - Dec. 26, 2023, 3:45 p.m.

Hey Ingrid, I appreciate your feedback. The amount of sugar in this recipe is designed to replicate the sweet, indulgent flavor often found in café-style lattes, which many people enjoy. But taste preferences vary, and it's absolutely fine to adjust the sugar level to suit your own :)


Rachel M - Dec. 23, 2023, 7:41 a.m.

Great recipe! Perfect warm spiced flavour. Made 7 jars for gifting.


Rachel S - Dec. 22, 2023, 4:12 p.m.

Made this for all my girlfriends as well as a cookie tin filled with PUL cookies. I must say I was a little disappointed with this mix. It’s EXTREMELY mild. It’s more of a hint of chai than a chai latte. Tasted the best when I made it with full fat coconut milk and added more ground cloves, ground ginger, and a bit of maple syrup.

PUL Team - Dec. 22, 2023, 8:16 p.m.

Hey Rachel, we're disappointed to hear although we appreciate the honest review. Fresh spices provide more potent flavour in case the spices you had on hand may have been a bit older. Adding more of the mix can also strengthen the flavour when it's in milk. We're glad you found a variation you enjoyed though, thanks for taking the time to share 💛 and happy holidays!


Remco Daniel Nijkamp - Dec. 22, 2023, 3:41 p.m.

Accidentally put a bit too much ginger, but ended up quite liking it! Made a bunch of it and packed them as Christmas gifts, thanks for the idea!

PUL Team - Dec. 22, 2023, 8:08 p.m.

Aw we're so happy to hear, Remco, and hope the Christmas gifts are enjoyed! 😃


jennie R - Dec. 21, 2023, 7:55 p.m.

This was so easy to make and a great gift! The taste is comforting… love it!


Ingrid - Dec. 20, 2023, 9:56 p.m.

The best vegan recipes ever, and the pictures great.

PUL Team - Dec. 21, 2023, 7:16 p.m.

A huge compliment, Ingrid, thank you! Excited to continue this adventure together 🤗✨


AnnMarie - Dec. 18, 2023, 8:17 p.m.

This is so yummy!!


PaulaP - Dec. 18, 2023, 12:37 p.m.

Swapped regular coffee for decaf and whipped up some quick gifts in small mason jars. Absolutely delicious!


Shai from Florida - Dec. 16, 2023, 9:03 a.m.

Hi Sadia!!
Dirty Chai Lattes are my fav morning drink. I tried this recipe today and I love it! 😍 😋 All Chai recipes aren’t created equal and yours definitely takes first! 😁 Also, your video has inspired me to make a few items as Christmas gifts this year. 🎄

PUL Team - Dec. 18, 2023, 3:59 a.m.

Aw thanks so much for the lovely review, Shai! Sending lots of love to Florida 🤗

Shai from Florida - Dec. 18, 2023, 4:22 a.m.

I love to travel ✈️, food is my love language 😋 and my favorite flower is the tulip 🌷. Maybe one of these days I can come to the Netherlands and cook with you all! 😊


Stephanie Borkowicz - Dec. 15, 2023, 8:27 p.m.

I absolutely love this and I love having a mix on hand. I used oat milk, and I also put boiling water in mine. Mainly because I don't like a thick drink. My son puts a cinnamon stick in his. :)

PUL Team - Dec. 16, 2023, 7:14 a.m.

So thrilled you're enjoying the mix, Stephanie! Oat milk and boiling water are great choices for a lighter texture. Adding a cinnamon stick is a delightful touch too 🥰


Franziska - Dec. 14, 2023, 5:10 p.m.

I did add a little german „Lebkuchengewürz“ to make it even more taste like Christmas in a Cup and reduced the sugar. It was amazing!


Aubrey - Dec. 13, 2023, 6:27 p.m.

This was yummy! I subbed instant espresso for instant coffee and used a little vanilla extract in place of vanilla sugar (and combined the two sugar amounts). It doesn't taste like chai to me, but I like it.

PUL Team - Dec. 15, 2023, 1:42 a.m.

Thanks for taking the time to share your experience with the mix, Aubrey! ☺️


Franziska - Dec. 12, 2023, 8:42 p.m.

I made a batch for my spouse and me to test and it is so delicious and comforting. Will now create more batches to gift to family and friends. Maybe I try the mix also in my oatmeal, because why not. Thank you dear PUL team for this treat. Have a merry Christmas time!

PUL Team - Dec. 14, 2023, 8:23 a.m.

So thrilled to hear you and your spouse enjoyed it, Franziska! What a lovely idea to share the joy with family and friends through homemade gifts. Mixing it into oatmeal sounds like a delightful experiment too 🥰


Federica - Dec. 12, 2023, 11:12 a.m.

Sadia! I have made loads and loads of your recipes, enjoyed at home with my family, brought to parties with my friends and yesterday I made the chai latte mix to gift to a friend for our upcoming Secret Santa party. It smelled so good I had to make one batch for my self as well, which I tried this morning and it was delicious!! I cannot wait for my friend to have it and try it ❤️❤️❤️
You and the whole team are amazing! Wish you merry Christmas, lots of love from Italy 🇮🇹🎄🎈❤️

PUL Team - Dec. 12, 2023, 8:29 p.m.

Thank you so much for your heartfelt message! It's incredible to hear that you've been sharing the joy of our recipes with your loved ones and even creating thoughtful gifts like the chai latte mix. Your support means the world, and we're sending lots of love back to you in Italy. Merry Christmas and happy cooking, Federica! ❤️


Christine - Dec. 12, 2023, 9:58 a.m.

My husband asked me "what in the glorious heaven is this?". Haha safe to say he liked it. Thanks so much PUL team!


Amanda - Dec. 11, 2023, 10:40 p.m.

Holy moly, this was easy and incredible. Better than any coffee shop around. This tired Mama thanks you.

PUL Team - Dec. 12, 2023, 8:05 a.m.

Thrilled to hear you found it easy and incredible! Nothing beats a homemade pick-me-up. Sending lots of energy and love to you, Amanda 😊💛


Diana te Braake - Dec. 11, 2023, 9:45 p.m.

Any suggestions on how to make this for those who don't drink/like coffee? A chocolate version? 🤔

PUL Team - Dec. 12, 2023, 3:51 a.m.

Hey there, Diana, you could simply omit the coffee granules. You can also experiment with a chocolate version by replacing the instant coffee with finely chopped chocolate. Alternatively, if you have our app, we have a recipe for a Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate Mix you may also consider trying: https://www.pickuplimes.com/r… 😊

Diana te Braake - Jan. 4, 2024, 1:31 p.m.

Thanks so much! I've tried it with just some "milk choc bits" that we had in the house - we used about the same amount as coffee in the original recipe and it was di-vine! Maybe a bit sweet, so might reduce the sugar in the next trial but can definitely recommend to try it! I'm off to the store to get some more ingredients to make another for a friend. We also made 2 gifts of these with the coffee for friends this Christmas and they loved them! 😍 Thanks PUL team!


Sherrie - Dec. 11, 2023, 5:53 p.m.

Tasted baddddd

PUL Team - Dec. 12, 2023, 3:15 a.m.

Hey Sherrie, we're so disappointed to hear! Did you substitute any of the ingredients by any chance? We strive for 5-star recipes so we'd love to get to the bottom of it ✨


Zala - Dec. 11, 2023, 8:23 a.m.

Just made it. So comforting!

PUL Team - Dec. 12, 2023, 2:15 a.m.

Yay! So happy to hear, Zala, thank you 😊
