Recipe for vegan spicy almond chai….my favourite cuppa!

You might already know that my battle with Rosacea has left me without my beloved coffee, every morning I will have a cup of black chai or earl grey tea and that is my fix! For a while I felt completely out of the coffee loop, going to the cafe every morning was part of my routine and now it seemed pointless just to go for a cup of tea! Recently though I’ve found so many places serving my new favourite thing: almond chai 🙂

This is not something I drink often but if I happen to be strolling past Orchards Street or Organic Avenue I might just treat myself! I had a go at making my own and loved the outcome so thought I would share it with you 🙂

You can find my post for basic almond milk here and home-made makes all the difference! you can use chai tea bags or buy loose leaf and fill your own tea bags if you have them.

You will need:

350 ml of almond milk

chai tea bags

sprinkling of nutmeg

sprinkling of cinnamon

1/4 tsp of vanilla powder

1 tsp of maple syrup

cinnamon sticks *optional


  • Brew the tea in a small amount of boiling water
  • Heat the almond milk in a pan to warm
  • Place the almond milk in a blender (such as the Vitamix) and add the nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla powder and syrup. Blend to a nice frothy mixture.
  • Place the tea and water in a mug and top with the almond milk.
  • Decorate with a cinnamon stick
  • Enjoy x x
