Food in Process: chai tea latte 2 (VEGAN)


This cold, wet and windy weather right now screams for a hot spicy refreshing drink: chai tea latte. Which happen to be one of my favourite drinks in the world and probably the most ordered type of drink at Starbucks. Well, at least in the winter.

I’ve made this before (this post) and this time I’ve made it vegan by replacing milk with soy milk! If you love drinking soy milk already and as like most Asian kids (including me) who has ‘Vitasoy’ cartons when they were little, you’ll enjoy this vegan chai tea latte!

P.S it tastes even better with a muffin!


In het afgelopen nieuws las ik over een windhoos die over dit kikkerlandje raasde. Ik was daarna echt bang geworden, zeker met al die bomen om ons huis heen. Dus, kortom, het weer is ontzettend bagger. Ik heb daarom laatst een lekker ‘chai tea latte’ gemaakt, mijn lievelingswinter drankje!

Ik heb het eerder gemaakt (zie post) en deze keer is het veganistisch door de melk te vervangen met soja melk! Als je sowieso van soja drank houdt en net als de meeste Asian kindjes (inclusief mezelf) van jongs af aan uit  ‘Vitasoy’ pakjes drinken, dan moet je dit recept proberen!

P.S. het smaakt nog beter met een muffin!

Da Recipe: For 2 cups: 250ml water, 250ml soymilk, 2 teabags (Earl Grey), 
 3 cinnamon stick, 3 fresh ginger slices, 5 anise seeds, 5 cloves, ½ tsppepperballs, 1 tbs. honey,  
2 tbs. brown sugar, whipped soy cream, cinnamon powder, nutmeg, 

 This 'Skinny Lemon Poppy Seed' muffin is YUM! 

Da Steps: 

1. Get a nice pot/sauce pan and boil the water along the herbs, spices and the fresh ginger for about 5 minutes.  
2. Set aside the pan and add the two teabags and let it soak for about 2 hours. Remove the teabags. 
From this point your chai tea latte is ready to serve, but if you can, store your brewed goods overnight in a container in the fridge like I did.

3. In a new pan, boil the soy milk, sugar and honey. 
4. Get your container of tea ready. Once your milk is boiled, get a sieve and strain the tea over the pan of milk. And boil until its ready.
5. Get your glasses ready! Whip the soy cream until stiff. 
6. Pour the chai tea into your favorite glasses for  about 80% and another 20% of cream on top. 
7. Finish it with cinnamon and nutmeg powder. 

I'm Feeling: relieved

  9. Ik heb het één keer bij de starbucks gehaald maar vond het niet echt my cup of tea om het zo te zeggen

  10. You are my HERO! I am putting this in me recipe book. Dairy makes me sick and I sometimes don't have the time to stop by the cafe. What is better than making it yourself :)

  11. I quite like the somewhat spicy taste of chai lattes in cooler seasons too ^_^
    I haven't made homemade chai latte before - I must try it next time Winter comes round (it's nearly Summer here T_T )

  12. Ik hou van chai tea lattes, ik ga het zeker een keer maken van de week!

  15. My favorite drink for winter and my only choice at Starbucks, hahaha :) thanks for sharing the recipe now I can try it at home.

  16. I seriously love you for this awesome vegan recipe. I am actually having chai tea as my current fave drink for winter. Due starbucks being too expensive for me right now, I couldn't enjoy Chai tea latte that often... OTL

  17. looks so so comforting. i can gobble up that muffin right now.
