With just a few basic healthy ingredients, this homemade chai is easy, delicious and inexpensive.

Today was the first day since June that I did not wear my flip flops. That means only one thing: the cold weather is here.

Although yesterday was warm and sunny, today we will dip down to a low of 35 degrees! For me, this chilly weather calls for one of my favorite beverages: homemade chai. With just a few basic ingredients, this recipe is easy, delicious and inexpensive.

Soothing Chai

  • 6 cups water
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 4 cloves
  • 1 inch ginger, sliced
  • 8 pods cardamom
  • 6 whole peppercorns
  • 1 bag peppermint tea (or 1 tablespoon loose peppermint tea)
  1. Combine all ingredients in a pot and place on stove over medium heat
  2. Bring to a boil, then turn down and simmer for 15 minutes
  3. Strain into mugs
  4. Serve piping hot with agave and almond milk (optional)

This recipe for homemade chai is simple and, on a cloudy day, very satisfying! Another vegan, dairy free, lactose free, gluten free beverage for a chilly day. Enjoy!
