Well, it’s sure looking like it’ll be another chilly weekend. But don’t you worry, we’ve got just the thing to keep you going.
This batch of homemade Chai-Spiced Almond Milk will ensure that your day is refreshed, toasty, and healthy.
Why is chai-flavored anything so good? Whether it is enjoyed as a cold or warm beverage, or baked into a delicious sweet treat, it always seems to warm up the soul.
For some reason when I think of chai, I often think of dominating a grande chai frappuccino from Starbucks, with a full load of whipped cream to top it off. Talk about brain freeze central. I’m not proud of it, but it was a definite weakness back in the day…especially after an early morning surf sesh with my dear friend Surf Goose (PS. that’s a nickname, not a real human name, just so we aren’t confused).
Since we’ve already shared with you the BEST homemade Vanilla Almond Milk, we wanted to take it once step further and give you some zesty flavor options.
And since it’s Friday, and we like to share a cocktail recipe to get your weekend going, I’m just going to give you a little hint: you could totally spike your glass of Chai-Spiced Almond Milk. Maybe add a little Ameretto, Kahlua, Bailey’s, or another classy liqueur. Just sayin’….
Chai-Spiced Almond Milk
Yields 4 cups (recipe can be easily halved for a smaller batch)
4 cups homemade almond milk
2 Tbsps honey, agave or other sweetener (more or less, to taste)
1 tsp cinnamon
3/4 tsp garam masala
1/4 tsp nutmeg
dash of clove (less than 1/8 tsp)
dash of ginger (less than 1/8 tsp)
Add the spices and preferred sweetener to already prepared almond milk (preferably homemade) and combine in a blender or shake in a large airtight jar. It is best served chilled or heated up for a warm chai milk treat. It is also an excellent addition to tea, oatmeal. cereal, or coffee.
