Chai Tea Ice Cream

This chai tea ice cream combines my love for tea and my love for ice cream. Perfectly sweet, creamy and only needs 5 ingredients! Hello dessert!

Today’s post is brought to you by my friend Samantha of Sweet Remedy. Whenever Sam and I get together it always leads to a day full of laughing and delicious food being consumed. It’s just what two food bloggers do. We take pictures of our food and then we eat it…best day ever! If you are not familiar with Sam’s blog you need to go over and check it out. It’s full of fantastic recipes and some pretty beautiful photography too 🙂 Check out some of her fantastic recipes – Grilled Peach & Chipotle SalsaSquash and Ginger MuffinsStrawberry Basil Popsicles and Pumpkin Whip & Gingersnap Cookies.

I am so excited to be involved in this ice cream social! Thank you to Brandy for having me along side all these lovely bloggers. Another big thanks to Big Kitchen and King Arthur Flour for sponsoring prizes for this 2 week long ice cream event.

For those of you who don’t know me, I’m Sam and I blog over at Sweet Remedy. It is nice to virtually meet you! I am lucky enough to have the pleasure of knowing Brandy in person. We live about an hour away from each other and I am always eager to go see this girl! I know, you are all jealous. You really should be. We met via a baking group in the Hudson Valley but I don’t think we ever attended any of the same meetings. A mutual friend introduced us, I think.

As has been mentioned on my blog many times, I love ice cream. My ice cream maker is my favorite tool in the kitchen and it is always in my freezer, unless it is churning a new ice cream recipe. There is something so satisfying about making your own ice cream to share with your family and friends. People are still shocked that I make my own ice cream and they sometimes demand that I make them some. I tend to give the people what they want! I encourage my family and friends to be creative in thinking of a flavor because I love a good challenge!

Originally I wanted to make ice cream bars covered in toffee but then I decided to create a flavor that I’ve always wanted in ice cream form: Chai tea! It was inspired by the beloved chai tea latte from Starbucks. This was easy to transform into ice cream form. A little steeping of Tazo chai tea bags into the hot milk and cream mixture and you are good to go!

Now that I am looking over the recipe, I think that a dollop of freshly made whipped cream would have been perfect on top of these perfect brown scoops. I also sprinkled chopped pecans on top and it totally hit the spot.


Chai Tea Ice Cream

This chai tea ice cream combines my love for tea and my love for ice cream. Perfectly sweet, creamy and only needs 5 ingredients! Hello dessert!


  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 6 chai tea bags


In a saucepan, heat the heavy cream and milk until warm, do not let boil. Remove from heat and add the tea bags, let steep for 35-45 minutes. Discard tea bags after steeping.

Whisk the egg yolks and the sugar together and set aside. Reheat the milk mixture and slowly incorporate 1 cup into the whisked eggs. Add the egg mixture into the spice infused milk and cream and heat until the mixture is thick enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon, about 5 minutes. Stir continuously to avoid cooking of the eggs.

Strain mixture into a new bowl. Set this bowl inside of a larger bowl filled with ice. Let mixture cool and place in the refrigerator to chill completely.

Once mixture is completely chilled, follow your ice cream makers’ instructions to churn. (Usually in a completely frozen bowl, churn for 15-20 minutes. Transfer soft ice cream to a freezer safe bowl and freeze for 4-6 hours or until completely frozen.)

    I still haven’t tried those Oroes! I ate 2 (!) packages of those stupid Chips Ahoy with frosting in the middle within 2 days so I’ve been avoiding cookies. Gah.

    I need this ice cream! You know an ice cream is good when it calls for 8 yolks!

    I have to laugh at your Oreo addiction! My husband has been obsessed with them as well forever – back when he was 20 and still living at home, his mom always kept a fresh package of Oreos in a gallon Ziploc bag in his room!! The dud had all access to Oreo’s all the time! She still gives him a box full as a funny Christmas present! Me…I hardly buy them for him because POOF they are gone! Meanwhile a couple of years ago on my Grandmom’s 100th birthday…Oreo was turning 100 too. So we had them as well as other 100 year old products throughout her party rooms- and that’s when she had HER first one! Your ice cream is GORGEOUS!

    I was at my dad’s house one day and he had some of those peanut butter Oreos! I tried one just to see how I likes then and I ended up eating his whole pack before I left that day! I LOVE them and I know I would LOVE your ice cream as well! I have never made homemade ice cream but have really been wanting to try. I thought I had to have an ice cream machine but you were awesome and made yours without! Thank you so much for sharing!

    Oh, no. Well now I HAVE to go to the store and pick up a box of these. And then I HAVE to eat the whole thing. And then I HAVE to go buy another one. And then ice cream can happen.

    When I saw that bag of mini peanut butter Oreos in the store I actually resisted buying them because 1) I knew I would inhale them before setting eyes on a recipe and 2)I actually have a bag of Reese’s Oreos I need to bake into something. Total slacker. Maybe I’ll just make this ice cream with them O:-)

    Just made this recipe and it is intensely delicious! My husband didn’t believe me when I told him it was homemade! It doesn’t have the consistency of homemade and it has so much flavor, but not too rich! He’s very sensitive to too rich desserts and this is just right. Definitely a keeper! Thank you!
