Healthy Pumpkin Spice Chai Latte
Yields: 1 latte
 
This is a fall-flavored version of my mom’s favorite chai latte! It’s creamy and very lightly sweetened, and it has lots of cozy spice flavor. You can easily double or triple the recipe to serve more, and it tastes lovely as an iced latte too!
  • ¾ cup (180mL) water
  • 2 chai bags
  • 1 cup (240mL) unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 tbsp (15g) pumpkin purée (NOT pumpkin pie mix!)
  • ⅛ tsp ground cinnamon
  • tiny pinch ground nutmeg
  • tiny pinch ground ginger
  • 4 drops vanilla stevia (or adjusted to taste)
  1. Bring the water to a boil. Pour into a mug. Add the chai bags, and let them steep for 5-10 minutes (5 minutes for normal strength, 10 minutes [or more!] for stronger chai flavor).
  2. Add the milk, pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and vanilla stevia to a small pot. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring often, until the milk is hot. Pour into the brewed chai.
Notes: These are the chai bags that I use! (And if you prefer the traditional coffee version, I have a recipe for that here!)

Any milk may be substituted for the unsweetened vanilla almond milk.

I prefer a stronger spice flavor, so I add more cinnamon (closer to ¼ teaspoon in total). You can definitely adjust the spices to suit your tastes!

Since my mom doesn’t like her chai lattes very sweet now, I only added a teeny bit of vanilla stevia. You can definitely add more if you prefer! I buy mine online here because that’s the best price I’ve found, and you’ll also use it in all of these recipes of mine! You can also substitute your favorite sweetener instead (honey, maple syrup, agave, coconut sugar, etc).
