I don’t know about any of you, but when it starts getting cold, my latte consumption increases a lot and my bank account feels the pain. I don’t have a frother or anything fancy when it comes to making a latte at home, so when Silk showed me this recipe, well let’s just say that my bank account was rejoicing.
This spiced chai drink contains everything in it that I love about the changing seasons…minus of course the snow…it doesn’t include that 🙂 It is super easy and your tummy will love it. So go get a comfy sweater and fuzzy socks…we’re about to enjoy this drink in the comfort of our own home.
Ingredients: Yields 1
- 1 cup Silk soy, almond or coconut beverage, any flavour except the chocolate.
- 1 black tea bag
- 1-2 T honey or agave, to taste
- 1/2 t vanilla
- 1/8 t cardamom
- 1/8 t ground cinnamon
- 1/8 t ginger
- pinch of cloves
Directions: Place all ingredients in saucepan and bring to a simmer. Remove from heat and let steep for 10 minutes.
Remove tea bag and return to heat just until warm.
Silk suggests that for a more spirited drink, add 1oz Irish cream liqueur such as Bailey’s. ( I tried this, and it hit home)
Let these aromas fill the house, grab a book, put on a good movie or make a big batch and serve for company!

A few weeks ago I was in the USA doing some shopping (This girl loves LOVES Target), the weather was warm, but October was coming and us foodies know what that means ….. PUMPKIN!! I may or may not have bought pumpkin everything. And this makes me extremely excited. One of the things I did get was a Sugar Free Archer Farms Spiced Pumpkin Coffee Syrup. I also got pumpkin spiced coffee, but I didn’t use if for t his recipe below. Every fall I look forward to Starbucks Pumpkin Spiced Latte. The thought that I may be able to attempt to do this at home was beyond exciting…however I don’t have a frother. With a little help from YouTube, I managed to get my latte.
Ingredients: Yields 1 serving
Directions: Brew espresso (I used my french press), while that is brewing take almond milk and pour it into cocktail shaker, dance around kitchen and do the shake for about 30seconds, pour your agitated almond milk into a microwave safe container and heat on high for 30 seconds. In a mug add the spiced pumpkin coffee syrup, Pour freshly brewed espresso and stevia, stir contents, carefully add the agitated almond milk to your coffee, top with the foam. Finish off with a sprinkle of pumpkin spice. Enjoy 🙂
There is usually more froth, but I wasn’t fully setup for this photo. My bad 🙁
Yes please 🙂
Love this stuff! It is seasonal and they also have a non sugar free option as well.
I am off to Bluefish for sushi tonight! Mmmmmm sushi. I am in the process of writing my running follow up to share with you all. I have an unexpected conclusion from all of this that I must share!
What is your favorite part about fall? Mine is clearly all the PUMPKIN
