Vegan Chai Tea Latte with Turmeric
This Vegan Chai Tea Latte with Turmeric is made with only a handful of ingredients and is the perfect warmth + coziness to any day, especially during the Holidays. Literally whipped together in a few short minutes, this homemade latte comes bursting with chai spices + turmeric flavors that work so well together and is fully dairy-free, vegan, + gluten-free. A great caffeine alternative to coffee and works as a pick me up.
Servings 2 Servings
- 2 cups Almond milk (I use Califia Farms; You can use your own fave plant-based milk; See Notes!)
- 2-3 black tea bags (I use Tazo)
- 2 Tbsps Agave (See Notes!)
- 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp turmeric powder
- pinch of black pepper
Chai Tea Spice Mix:
- 2 Tbsps ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1 tsp ground ginger
- 1 tsp allspice
- 1 tsp cardamom
- 1/2 tsp ground cloves
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- Christmas Sprinkles, optional
In a medium saucepan on medium-high heat, add the milk and bring to a boil for 1-2 minutes. Remove the milk from heat and add tea bags and let them steep for 5-6 minutes.
Once fully steeped, remove tea bags and whisk in 1 Tbsp chai tea spice mix, turmeric, vanilla, and Agave until well combined.
To serve, pour turmeric-chai mixture in prepared mugs and top with CocoWhip, if preferred and sprinkle with additional chai spice mix or Holiday sprinkles.
Sip and enjoy!
- SWEETENER: You can always use maple syrup, Vegan honey, or organic brown sugar as a substitute for Agave. For vegan honey—-Bee Free Honee, click link.
- LATTE: Best when consumed once prepared. Not recommended to be stored.
- IS THERE OTHER METHODS TO MAKING THIS? 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.
- WHAT PLANT-BASED MILKS ARE GOOD FOR THIS RECIPE? My go-to plant-based milk is Almond milk from Califia Farms. However, you can always use your fave or one of the following: coconut milk, oat milk (froths/foams VERY WELL), flax milk, etc.
