Chai Blueberry Sauce over French Toast
Inevitably about a month into summer I get pangs for fall to come sooner. This year proved to be no different.
Usually I jump right into zucchini bread and pumpkin flavored everything. Not to mention watching Hocus Pocus about two months before it’s culturally acceptable.
This year I figured I would at least make an attempt to be summery. So, I made Chai Blueberry Sauce. Blueberries for summer. Chai for fall. Boom! Compromise.
This sauce is easy to make and delicious over:
- French Toast
- Ice Cream
- Large spoons...
The blueberry sauce only takes about 10 minutes to make. Completely worth it in my book. It’s a very simple recipe. Just combine the blueberries, chai tea, sugar, vanilla and cornstarch and reduce over the stove. Then add butter in at the end to give the sauce a bit of creaminess.
I used Townshend’s Tea Company’s Masala Chai tea. They call it a classic recipe consisting of black tea, cinnamon, ginger and cardamom. A little spicy, a little sweet. It definitely has a little punch to it which I loved.
I really liked this combination. The chai tea adds a nice spiciness to the blueberries and the vanilla bean helps to round out the flavor. It’s so delicious and so easy.
I made this sauce to go over french toast. I had just made challah bread and everyone knows the #1 best use of challah bread is for french toast. Am I right?? Holla!
If you make this sauce to go over French Toast like I did, I highly suggest roasting some hazelnuts to sprinkle on top. They add a really rich flavor that complements the blueberries and chai.

Lovely little things:
- I just found this company, Lively who sells really cute and comfortable bras at a totally reasonable price. Recommend. Plus cute summer patterns.
- I also finally got some Betabrand Dress Pant Yoga Pants. Yes, you read that correctly: Dress Pant Yoga Pants. They’re stretchy and comfortable like yoga pants but use a thick material and look like dress pants so you can be comfortable and professional at work. Obvious purchase.
