Warming chai with orange

Warming chai with orange

A warming drink for cold days. Sweet, creamy and flavoured with spices that will fill your whole kitchen with a lovely aroma - and most likely wake up any late sleeper.

If you can and want I’d really recommend to mix your own almond milk - nothing beats a home made freshly mixed, creamy and sweet almond mylk!

Warming chai with orange

Yields 4 glasses

Ingredients

8 dl / 3 1/2 cups almond mylk, home made* or store bought

2 Tbsp almond butter

2 medjool dates, or 4 fresh dates

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp ground cardamom

1/4 tsp ginger

1 pinch cloves

1 pinch black pepper

1 pinch flakey salt 


For garnishing 

1 organic orange

ground cinnamon


How to

Pitt the dates. Grate the orange zest, then squeeze the orange. Mix all the ingredients, except for the orange zest, in a blender until smooth. Pour in to a sauce pan and bring to a boil, simmer for a few minutes. Pour in to 4 cups. Grate orange zest and dust with extra cinnamon. Serve while hot!



  • Want to make your own almond milk? Easy peasy! Soak 2 dl almonds over night or for at least 8 hours. Drain and rinse the almonds. Mix with a pinch of salt and 8 dl of fresh water in a high speed blender until smooth. You then might want to pour the blended almonds through a nut bag or a fine mesh strainer as well to get a really smooth mylk. If so keep the pulp for making patties or for your baking!

    Keep the almond milk you won’t use right away in an air tight glass container in the fridge for up ro 3 days. Give it a shake before you use it.
