The transition from summer to fall seems like it happened overnight.
One day it was 90 degrees sunny, the next day it was cool, rainy, and the trees had begun to change color.
While I’m sad that summer is over I pretty excited about fall.
There’s nothing I like more than to sit on my deck on a fall morning with a cup of hot chai. Maybe it’s just me, but I think there is some kind of magical combination of holding the warm mug between my hands while sipping the rich creamy tea full of warming spices.
What Is Chai?
Chai literally means tea. So to say “chai tea” is kinda redundant.
There are endless chai variations, but typically it’s black tea made with whole milk, sugar, and a combination of spices. Traditional spices include cardamom, cloves, and cinnamon but other spices like fennel or pepper can also be added.
How Do You Make Chai Vegan?
To make chai vegan you just need to omit the milk. You can do this by replacing it with non-dairy milk like almond milk or simply with water, but you’ll lose a lot of the richness. To keep it creamy replace some or all of your liquid with coconut milk. For this instant mix, I used powdered coconut milk.
What Is Powdered Coconut Milk?
Powdered coconut milk is just like it sounds, it’s a powder made by dehydrating coconut milk. To reconstitute it simply add hot or cold water, although it works a lot better with hot water. You can find it at health food stores or online. There are also a few verities available at Asian markets, although they typically contain other ingredients, sometimes even dairy.
