Vegan MoFo Day #16!
I had the best chai ever yesterday morning. Previously I’d just throw a chai tea bag in some hot water with milk and call it done, but taking the extra few minutes to simmer it really makes it amazing! I’d love to mix my own chai, but I’m not that cool yet. This was some rooibos chai tea from Allison’s Gourmet I got as a Christmas gift last year and have been meaning to use up. Now I’m addicted! If only it had caffeine…next time I’ll get the caffeinated kind!
A Good Cuppa Chai
– 2 Tbsp. loose chai tea (whatever you have)
– 12 oz. water
– 6 oz. non-dairy milk (I prefer soy creamer or coconut milk)
– sweetner of choice
– 1 tsp. fresh ginger (optional)
Put chai, ginger and water in small pot, bring to a boil then simmer, covered, for 5 minutes on low. Add non-dairy milk, stir and simmer for a few minutes more. Turn off heat, add your sweetner of choice, strain and drink! Sooo goood.
I love me some chai.
