  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger

Ingredients for the Pumpkin Spice Chai Latte:

  • 2 tablespoons Pumpkin Spice Base
  • 1 cup milk (whole, 2%, skim, almond, coconut, soy, what have you…)
  • 1 chai tea bag. I like Stash Chai Spice best
  • Whipped Cream, optional
  • Fresh nutmeg, optional

Directions To Make the Pumpkin Spice Base:

  1. Mix all of the base ingredients together until it is evenly coloured and darkened.
  2. Scrape it into a clean jar with a tight fitting lid.
  3. Store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

Directions To Make a Pumpkin Spice Chai Latte:

  1. Pour about 4 ounces of boiling water over the chai tea bag (unless you’re using green or white chai, in which case you use under-boiling water!) Let it sit while you prepare the pumpkin milk.
  2. Stir the Pumpkin Spice Base and the milk together in a microwave safe 2 cup container or a saucepan until smooth.
    • If microwaving, heat on high until steamy and frothy.
    • If heating in a saucepan, heat over medium high heat until steaming hot.
  3. Pour the hot milk into the tea. You can leave the tea bag in if you’d like it very strong or remove it according to your own preference.
  4. Serve as is or top with a thick cap of whipped cream and a few scrapings of nutmeg. Say ahhhhhhh.
