Vegan Masala Chai – Indian Spiced Tea or Chai Latte

teaMy Vegan Masala Chai recipe had to be the very first post for howtomakeitvegan. This is the first thing I make almost every morning. There is nothing better than a flavorful cup of hot spiced tea to warm you up on winter mornings. I am not a coffee person, love the smell but can’t drink it, so tea is my go to warm beverage.

My recipe uses low fat soy milk, but you can swap that out with almond milk or coconut milk, or just drink it black.

Ingredients
1/2 cup Water (1 cup for  black tea)
1/2 inch sliced Ginger
4 Cloves
2 Cardamom
1 inch stick or 1/2 tsp powder Cinnamon
A pinch of grated Nutmeg
1 tbsp Tea leaves (or bag)
1 tsp Sugar (optional)
1 tsp Stevia (optional)
1/2 cup Soy milk (optional)

Directions

Bring the water and milk to a boil in a pan and in the meantime crush the dry spices in a mortar and pestle. Put all the spices, ginger, tea, sugar, and stevia into the boiling pot and let it simmer for 2 minutes. For stronger flavored tea, cover the pot and let steep for 5 minutes. Strain into a large mug and enjoy!
