Homemade Pumpkin Chai Tea Latte
Chai Tea Latte has become quite a trend now and if you are looking to add a twist to it, check out this recipe for Homemade Pumpkin Chai Tea Latte.
- One can of coconut cream
- 2 cups water
- 2 tsp of Masala Chai
- 1 cinnamon stick plus more for serving
- 1 cup almond milk
- ¼ cup pumpkin puree
- 2 tablespoons raw honey
Place the coconut cream in a medium mixing bowl and chill in the fridge. Meanwhile, bring the water to boil. Add the tea leaves and let it steep for 5-10 minutes. While the tea is steeping, combine the almond milk, pumpkin, and honey in a small food processor. Pulse until frothy and smooth. Remove the cinnamon stick and tea leaves. Whisk in the pumpkin milk and reheat over a low flame. Once the coconut cream is chilled, whisk it by hand until thickened. It won’t become as dense as whipped cream, but you want it to be foamy enough to sit on the top of the glass.
Ladle the tea into mugs and top with the coconut cream and a cinnamon stick for garnish.
