Current Obsession: Coconut Milk Vanilla Chai Latte

Yikes, almost a month since I last posted! December was super busy thanks to the short Christmas season, travelling, gatherings, and birthday celebrations. So there wasn’t much new going on in the kitchen except some molasses cookies that were supposed to be topped with a vegan caramel that just did not work out.

Anyway, I will say that over the last month or so, I’ve come up with my new favorite way to start every day: coconut milk vanilla chai latte. I don’t use the actual coconut milk in the can; I used So Delicious Coconut Milk Beverage (unsweetened). I love this stuff. It is the best milk out there, in my opinion, though I don’t drink it straight very often.

What I do is mix it in with a cup of Bigelow Vanilla Chai tea. I’ve tried other chai bags as well as loose chai and though they’re all good (and the loose ones are more authentic), my preference is for this vanilla chai. Just opening the box is a pleasure because it smells so good. And the taste with the milk is really quite decadent even though there’s less than 20 calories in it since I only use 1-2 ounces of the milk.

chailatteI love this drink so much, that I actually make a special trip to Target to get the tea and milk because the regular groceries don’t carry the milk and their tea is more expensive.

  1. Ooh, I’ll have to try this. I love chai lattes, but haven’t found the right homemade combo so I’m eager to try this. My all time favorite chai was a celestial seasonings coconut chai that I also made special trips to Target for, but I haven’t been able to find it in over 6 months. Hopefully this will be a good replacement!

    I’m adding this chai tea brand to my list for when I finally empty out my tea cupboard of all the other varieties I’m currently going through. thanks for the rec!

  3. This sounds fantastic! I have some delicious chai in the house that I typically just drink straight, but I think I’ll try to find the coconut milk drink and make your latte. Do you think they carry it at Kroger? Where’d you get yours?
