Gluten-Free Spicy Chai Muffins

Crazy about chai? This wildly popular drink, made from black tea, milk and traditional Indian herbs and spices, is guzzled down by coffee-shop goers for its exotic, eye-opening flavor and irresistible creaminess. But a luscious latte isn’t the only way to enjoy it! In these mouth-watering muffins, an organic spiced chai protein shake is used to create moistness and kick up nutrition. Add raisins or diced apples for extra yum!
