Vegan Chai Latte


Description

This spicy homemade Vegan Chai Latte is made with almond milk and sweetened naturally with maple syrup. The homemade chai spice mix is full of ginger, cinnamon, black pepper, and other warm spices. It’s the perfect drink for chillier days.


Ingredients

Scale

For the chai spice mix

  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon grated nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • ½ teaspoon ground cloves
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper

For the latte

  • 2 cups almond milk, or dairy-free milk of choice
  • 2 bags black tea
  • 12 tablespoons pure maple syrup, to taste

Instructions

For the chai spice mix

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together all of the spices until fully incorporated. Transfer to a spice jar.

For the latte

  1. In a small saucepan, heat the almond milk until scalding. Turn off the heat and add the black tea bags, let steep for about 5 minutes and then remove the tea bags.
  2. Add 1 teaspoon of the chai spice mix and 1-2 tablespoons maple syrup and whisk to combine. Taste, and add more spice/maple syrup as desired. You can also transfer the mixture to a blender and blend to combine, which will add some foam, or mix with a hand frother.
  3. Serve in one or two mugs, topped with some dairy-free whipped cream and a dusting of chai spice mix, if desired!

Notes

To make a “dirty” chai: use half almond milk and half coffee, or add a packet of Four Sigmatic Mushroom Coffee to the latte.

Chai Spice Mix makes enough for about fifteen 16 ounce servings
