This vegan Turmeric Latte is a healthy alternative to regular chai. Its infused with black tea and nicely flavored with chai spices with being brewed to perfection. It’s a nutritious comforting warm beverage for all year round.
In two servings cups place the tea bags and pour ¼ cup of boiling water in each cup. Let it brew.
In the meanwhile, in a sauce pan combine oat milk, ginger powder, turmeric powder, cinnamon powder, cardamom powder and stir nicely. Heat it at high flame stirring constantly. At the first boil lower the flame and stir in maple syrup. Then turn it off.
Now, pour the turmeric milk equally in the two cups and remove the tea bags. Froth it with milk frother and serve immediately.(if you do not have frother simply combine the turmeric milk and the brewed tea without the tea bags in a blender and blend it smooth).
- Variation 1 – follow step 1 in the instruction.

Let it boil for 1-2 minutes and strain it in your brewed tea. Remove the tea bags and froth or blend.
- Variation 2 – follow step 1 in the instruction and let it brew. In a blender combine ½ inch root ginger, 1 inch root turmeric, cinnamon powder, cardamom powder and maple syrup in a blender.
