A creamy hot drink has been my 4:00pm snack ever since the weather turned colder. I try to avoid too much caffeine in the afternoon, so this Dairy-Free Chai Latte is one of my favorites to enjoy later in the day.
This drink is free of dairy and contains no caffeine, but it still feels a little bit energizing. On a cold day, to me there’s really nothing better than the smell of chai spices. The spice blend used in chai drinks is both warming and grounding, and they’re all great for digestion.

DAIRY-FREE CHAI LATTE
- 1/4 cup homemade cashew milk, or other non-dairy milk
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp ground ginger
- 1/4 tsp ground cardamom
- Liquid stevia to taste
- Optional: 1 tsp reishi mushroom powder
- Optional: 1 tsp pearl powder
Bring about 6 oz of water to an almost boil. While the water is heating, place the cashew milk, cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, and liquid stevia into a blender. Add the reishi mushroom powder and pearl powder, if using (it will not affect the flavor of the drink if you omit these ingredients). Carefully add the very hot water to the blender and blend on low speed, gradually working up to medium low, and blending until the drink is creamy and frothy. Makes 1 chai latte.
