WARM, AROMATIC, AND COMFORTING. FOR ME, CHAI IS LIKE A HUG IN A CUP!
For those of you who have a dairy sensitivity or are vegan, here is my go-to masala chai recipe for you!
I grew up making masala chai with my Mom. It was our evening ritual. I would stand on a stool next to her, hovering over the stove smelling the sweet & spicy aromas. Once we were done preparing it, she would give me a little in my own cup and we would have it with biscuits, perfect for dipping!
Chai has become popular lately but what you get at your local Starbucks isn't anywhere close to the real thing! Chai is meant to be rich, robust, and brimming with flavor.
Traditionally chai is made with milk, so how do you enjoy a cup of authentic chai if you have a dairy sensitivity or are vegan?
I personally have a mild sensitivity to dairy, especially in the form of milk, so for me, I only have “real milk" on special occasions. Here is how I usually enjoy my cup of chai.
