So I have my mushroom coffee every morning, and to be real, I’m pretty addicted to it. But sometimes lately, I want a second warm drink of the day and don’t want to have more coffee.

Also – it’s been getting straight up chilly in San Diego this last week or so and allll of the warm drinks have been calling my name.

In fact, it’s currently pouring, and sipping on a hot drink is just about the dreamiest thing to do when it’s cold out and rainy out. Especially when that drink is loaded with warm spices. Bonus points for sipping your chai latte in front of a fire and/or wrapped in a cozy blanket. I’m slacking on the fireplace because, well, I live in San Diego and having a fireplace is a rare commodity, but you know I’ve got my blanket.

— let’s note, just got up in the middle of writing this to make my second vegan chai latte of the day

This recipe starts with a chai spice mix. The recipe provided makes a big batch, because who wants to have to measure out a whole bunch of spices every single time you want a chai? Instead, we make a big batch of the chai spice mix – enough for about 15 big lattes.

That way, making your vegan chai latte is as easy as heat (the milk), steep (the tea), and mix (the chai spice, milk, and sweetener). You can also use this mix to add into desserts, sprinkle in your coffee, or use in place of cinnamon for snickerdoodles…swoon.

This homemade chai latte isn’t too sweet, has a little kick from all the warm spices, and is sure to warm you right up. I used about a tablespoon of maple syrup to sweeten, but that’s up to your taste buds. Now hurry on and go make your own vegan chai latte, let the warm spices linger on your tongue, and enjoy every warm sip.

Ingredients

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
  • 1-2 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!

Recipe 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.
