Vegan Chai Latte

Hello guys!! Here I’m back with the vegan latte. From the basic to the classic. Making it is very easy and only a few ingredients are required.

What is masala chai?

Masala chai is basically the tea the spicy ingredients, which is most popular in India but the number of fans for this chai is increasing all over the world. The basic and chai and masala chai have a difference in them. The specialty is their ingredients from its original place of spices.

Main things are:

Black tea

Milk

Maple syrup (for sweetness)

Spices like ginger, cinnamon, clove, cardamom, black pepper

For this masala chai latte you’ll need:

Black or chai tea

Chai spices (listed below)

Sweetener (cane sugar, maple syrup)

Dairy-free milk of choice (almond is best)

Raw cashews (optional for thickening)

Coconut whipped cream for toppings

Instructions

Add water, tea, and spices to a saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer for another 10-15 minutes to fully steep.

  1. Remove from heat and add almond milk and sweetener of choice and stir. Warm for 2-3 minutes off the heat, and then pour over 2 serving mugs (amount as original recipe is written // adjust if altering batch size) using a fine mesh strainer.
  2. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed, adding more for sugar or maple syrup (or honey if not vegan) for sweetness, and ground cinnamon for a little extra warmth.
  3. OPTIONAL: For an extra creamy texture, add your chai tea mixture + soaked cashews to a blender and blend until creamy and smooth. Taste and adjust sweetness as needed. I added more sweeteners, ground cinnamon, and ground ginger for extra spice.
  4. Either reheat briefly on the stovetop or microwave and serve. Heat modestly as the mixture can thicken quite a bit when reheated for too long. If it gets too thick, thin with more almond milk or water.
  5. Top with coconut whip and a dash of cinnamon and serve. Leftovers keep well covered in the fridge for up to a few days, though best when fresh.

So, you should ask yourself. Would you like some chai? And try it!

Thank you. Follow and like for more. Stay safe and stay healthy.
