*Instead of 2 tbsp chocolate chai latte, you can use mix of 1 tbsp chocolate powder, 1/4 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp cardamom, 1 tsp confectioners sugar. * This recipe is for two 400 ml / 13.5 fl oz glasses. So you can easily use 200 ml / 6.8 fl oz glasses and distribute the amount of cream to four servings (637 calories per serving).
