Pumpkin spiced chai latte

Pumpkin chai final

About:

Pumpkin spice chai latte made with natural ingredients: pumpkin puree, almond milk, maple syrup and spices.

Chai adds sweet and spicy flavors to a creamy pumpkin “latte”, making this drink a decadent treat perfect for fall.  The pumpkin and chai spices shine through delightfully – kind of like a pumpkin pie in liquid form.

Serves-2
Preparation time-5 minutes
Cooking time-15 minutes

Ingredients:

For spice mix:

  • Pumpkin puree-1/4cup (i used more as i love pumpkin taste)
  • Maple syrup/ any sweetner-1-2tbsp
  • Ground cinnmon-1tbsp
  • Minced ginger-1/2tsp (alternatively ground ginger can also be used)
  • Ground nutmeg-1/4tsp
  • Dash of cloves
  • Vanilla extract-1/2tsp

For chai:

  • Milk-1cup (whole, semi-skimmed, almond or any)
  • Tea bag- 1
  • Water-1/2cup

Procedure:

  • In a small saucepan bring 1/2cup water to gentle boil.
  • As it boils remove from heat and add the tea bag and let it seep for 4-5minutes.
  • Before removing the tea bag, squeeze any water remaining out by pressing the tea bag and discard the bag.
  • Add milk, pumpkin puree, and maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves to the pan and pour the mixture into a stand blender and blend for a minute/two, until blended together and the drink is nice and creamy.
  • Pour the mixture back into the pan and gently rewarm on the stove, then pour into the mug.
  • Can serve with whipped cream/coconut cream if desired.

Note:

  • I haven’t used any whipped cream for serving so i used extra pumpkin puree for frothy and creamy texture.
  • Sweetener can be altered as per the taste.
  • Spices can be personalised as per the taste.

I am bringing this to Annie’s VVLP#21; Kimmy’s HVF #23
