The days are getting warmer, but we still have enough of a chill in the air in the morning and evening that makes it nice to sit down and sip a hot drink.
Try this homemade chai latte and enjoy before the hot summer days take over. Savor this last little bit of the cool season!
Oh, and it’s vegan, too. Try the full recipe below–I bet you can’t make it only once!
Spicy Chai Latte
- 2 cups water
- 3 black tea bags
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- 1 whole nutmeg
- 2 cardamom pods
- 1/4 tsp whole cloves
- 1/8 tsp black peppercorn
- 1 tbsp fresh ginger root, coarsely chopped
- 1-2 tbsp sugar
- 2 1/2 cups non-dairy milk (I use soy)
Combine the water, tea bags, and spices in a medium sized pot and bring to a boil. Boil for five minutes. Remove from heat, cover, and let sit for an additional 5 minutes.
Remove lid and add sugar and milk. Return to heat until the milk begins to lightly simmer. Immediately remove from heat.
Pour chai mixture through a strainer into a french press. Cover with top/filter and pump up and down a few times until the desired amount of froth builds up.
(Note: If you don’t have a french press, that’s okay too. The chai tea will still be awesome.)
Sprinkle with cinnamon and enjoy!
