Vegan Pumpkin Chai Latte. These are the four words that I love seeing every Fall season.
To be honest, I'm not a HUGE pumpkin fan. I'm more of a sweet potato kind of girl, however, there are a handful of pumpkin recipes that are my absolute fave and this is one of them. Of course, I have this Dairy-Free Pumpkin Spice Latte which is a classic drink that you can also indulge in!
I know that that Fall isn't officially here yet, but I wanted this week to be #PumpkinWeek on Orchids + Sweet Tea because, why not?
To kick things off, I wanted to share this latte with you which makes for a great coffee alternative because I chose to use Chai Tea instead.
If I'm honest, I know that there is a Pumpkin Spice Latte craze at Starbucks around this time BUT I'm truly obsessed with their Chai Tea Latte. OMG. I literally get this drink in the venti size on a DAILY basis. Haha.
If you're thinking about making your own pumpkin puree instead of using a store-bought canned version, then you'll be happy to know that it is rather simple:
Yes! You can definitely switch things up by serving this Vegan Pumpkin Chai Latte hot or cold whenever you chose to. To serve cold, simply allow the chai tea to cool and add everything to glass over ice, stir, and enjoy! Add dollops of coconut whipped cream, if desired.
One of the essential elements of this Vegan Pumpkin Chai Latte is the actual pumpkin spice blend. It is very simple to make, plus, you can make a larger batch and save some for baking!
To make homemade Pumpkin Spice, combine these spices:
That's it! This delicious blend is perfect for lattes, cookies, cakes, pies, pudding, or all things pumpkin.
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 Vegan Pumpkin Chai Latte will taste amazing, whichever you use.
If you do plan on making your own spice blend, you will need:
These Vegan Chai Tea Latte Cinnamon Rolls are something right on point for the Fall/Winter season. They are fluffy, soft, thick, sweet, and surely does just melt in your mouth with every bite. Not being your typical Cinnamon Roll, this recipe is topped with a mouth-watering Black Tea-infused Chai Tea glaze that will leave you ‘Cinnamon Roll obsessed’.
This is a delicious and easy recipe for an Iced Chai Tea Latte with brewed black tea, warming chai spices, and plant-based milk for a healthy vegan spin.
This Dairy-Free Carrot Cake with Chai Buttercream is the best + perfect rendition of traditional carrot cake with a dairy-free twist! Not only is it completely soft + fluffy, but it’s utterly delicious!
Absolutely! Feel free to add 2 shots of espresso or a ½ cup of strongly brewed coffee if you'd like.
Due to the pumpkin puree, this latte comes a bit thicker and creamier than other lattes. However, you can always reduce the amount of pumpkin for less thickness. Either way, this latte is SO Delish!
Definitely! For added pizzazz, feel free to added frothed milk to the top of your latte instead of CocoWhip or you can drink it without a topping. The possibilities are endless.
Yup. While I enjoy the slow and true cooking method of using my stovetop, you can make this latte within your blender. Some high-tech blenders like the Vitamix has a heating mode which allows you to blend and warm at the same time, which is one way to do it. Of course, if you're like me, then using your stovetop is just as easy.
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 coconut milk, cashew milk, soy milk and almond milk, we now have delicious options like oat milk, and even potato and quinoa milk.
