spicy chai garbanzo latte

This is a favorite everyday vegan comfort drink.  I did not post this recipe until today, because I thought that the soy milk I use (I buy organic in dry storage cases from costco warehouse) is too specific for the recipe.  I had tried almond milk, oat milk and coconut milk in this latte, but they seemed to separate and curdle the latte and also did not mesh well with the spices or make the drink creamy.

Well, the homemade easy garbanzo milk gets an A+.  It works and is very creamy and delicious.

Tea Pot, saucepan or microwave
blender for making garbanzo milk

You will think you are drinking a hot "milkshake"
1 tazo organic chai tea bag, not the concentrate (or use a tea ball and make your own blend of teas and spices such as cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, star anise, ginger and black pepper)
4 oz. of boiling hot water
4 oz. of garbanzo or soy milk
swirls of agave nectar to sweeten
cinnamon or nutmeg to sprinkle on top

Steep your tea bag in tea ready boiling water in the cup for around 5 minutes or so that it is very concentrated.
Add the garbanzo milk and sweetener of choice, stir and heat up again in microwave for 1 minute.
Top with cinnamon, nutmeg and enjoy!  (or refrigerate and enjoy on ice)
