Make this decadent homemade Dirty Chai Maple Iced Latte with bold amounts of maple and chai flavors coupled with cold brew and oat milk that creates the perfect pick-me-up in the mornings! All Dairy-free and vegan. Serve hot or cold.
There's honestly not much to say about this Dirty Chai Maple Iced Latte except for the fact that it's AMAZING! I've been enjoying the moments of making my lattes at home lately because they're not only so easy to make, but I get to control the ingredients that I add to them.
Recently, I decided to try the dirty version of chai tea because I realized that it was a thing and I'm so glad that I did. The Chai spices mixed in with the bold flavors of coffee is a delicious combo for sure.
However, if you’re cutting out coffee or want a lower-caffeine drink to sip in the morning, you’ll want to try my Iced Chai Tea Latte recipe ASAP. And while you’re at it, make a big batch and keep it in the fridge to pour over ice all week long.
Once you see how easy it is to make your own tea lattes at home, you’ll never have to go back to the coffee shop again. You’ll save money for sure. But your drinks will also taste just how you like them. It’s a win-win.
This tea latte recipe comes together in a saucepan on the stove for the chai tea component and then stirred together with the remaining ingredients. It’s full of classic chai spices and black tea.
While you can purchase chai tea mixes in stores, it's definitely a blend that is easy to find, but also easy to make. Your Dirty Chai Maple Iced Latte will taste amazing, whichever you use.
If you do plan on making your own spice blend, you will need:
The main component in this simple homemade is chai tea flavor and the coffee. To make your lattes, you’ll use:
Absolutely! Everything in this latte is completely dairy-free and if you’d like to switch things up with the type of plant-based milk that you use—–that’s totally fine! The world of plant-based milk is constantly expanding. From the classics like cashew milk, soy milk and almond milk, we now have delicious options like oat milk, coconut, and even potato and quinoa milk.
Yes! You can definitely switch things up by serving this latte hot or cold whenever you chose to. To serve hot, simply warm all latte ingredients together in a small saucepan until heated through. Pour in a mug and top with coconut whipped cream and a few sprinkles of chai tea mix, if desired.
Making coffee throughout the week can sometimes mean that you won’t always use up your coffee, especially when making coffee from ground coffee beans. Yes—you can add leftover coffee in other ways (i.e. baking, making a mocktail, etc.), why not just freeze them and re-create a new latte each day? Haha.
Plus, it’s really simple to make, so there’s that. Therefore, if you’re like me and you’re a homemade latte lover, then use these Caramel Coffee Ice Cubes for any flavored latte, including in this Dirty Chai Maple Iced Latte----simply replace the caramel in the ice cubes with maple syrup instead.
