10 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk (about half a 14-ounce can)

One 12-ounce can evaporated milk

3/4 cup heavy cream


Special equipment:
six 3-ounce frozen pop molds
  1. Put the evaporated milk, chai tea and vanilla bean in a small saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. Once the mixture starts to simmer, remove from the heat, cover and steep for 30 minutes.
  2. Pour the mixture through a fine-mesh strainer into a large bowl and whisk in the sweetened condensed milk and heavy cream. Pour the mixture into the pop molds and freeze until completely solid, at least 4 hours, preferably overnight.
  3. To unmold: run the molds briefly under warm water.
