Almond Milk Chai Latte

Author: Jeanine Donofrio for Love and Lemons

Serves: 1 large latte

Ingredients

  • 1 black tea bag
  • 2 whole star anise pods
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 4 dried cardamom pods
  • 11oz. container of Orignal Almond Breeze
  • optional: ½ inch knob of fresh ginger
  • optional: sweetener (maple, honey, stevia, etc) to taste

Instructions

  1. Place 1 black tea bag and a few whole spices into a mug.
  2. In a separate mug, heat the almond milk in the microwave for 1-2 minutes. Pour steaming almond milk into spiced-tea mug and steep for 5 minutes.
  3. Remove the tea bag and let the spices steep for 5 more minutes. (The longer they steep, the more flavorful your drink will be). Taste and add sweetener if you like. Scoop out the spices (or just drink around them).

Note: whole peppercorns are a nice addition, if you’re steeping and straining your tea. If you don’t want to strain anything, skip em.

Another note: skip the honey if you are vegan
