Sure, Chai Tea is the perfect compliment to Indian Food, but it is also
a satisfying drink to warm up with on a cool day and makes a refreshing iced drink for hot days.  A drink this delicious and versatile must have a vegan, raw option for those of us who want something a LOT healthier than the pre-made chai concentrates that are full of processed sugar and chemical laden non-dairy creamers. I’m committed to a high raw diet and enjoying Chai.  Here is what I’ve come up with.

Raw Chai Concentrate
Ingredients:
1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh grated ginger (use a micro plane zester)
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon clove
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla or the seeds from 2 vanilla bean pods
1/2 cup raw honey

To make hot chai…
Warm two cups of fresh almond milk on the stove over low heat stirring frequently until it feels as warm as a hot tub. Add in one tablespoon of the Chai concentrate (or more if you want a stronger tea). Stir well to combine and serve warm.

To make iced chai…
Put two cups of fresh almond milk in the Vita-Mix with 1 cup of ice ant two tablespoons of Chai concentrate, blend well.

    Wow, that says a lot. Thank you Lee Anne. Next time you make the caramel coconut brownies, try backing out some of the maple in the caramel topping and replacing it with some of this chai concentrate. Call me when you try it! Big love to you and Alex.
