SWEET VANILLA CHAI LATTE
2 Chai tea bags
300ml (1¼ Cup) Freshly boiled water
250ml (1 Cup) almond milk, bottled or fresh (To make fresh almond milk see recipe)
In a tea pot brew the chai tea for 5 minutes and add Modern Nature Liquid Stevia Drops Sweetener - Vanilla to taste (5-15 drops)
While the tea is brewing, heat the milk until it simmers. Take the milk of the heat and pour 1/3 way up your mug. Using a milk frother froth the milk for 20-30 seconds until milk is very frothy.
Once the tea has brewed pour it into the frothed milk.
FRESH ALMOND MILK
- 200 grams (2 cups) almonds (peeled or unpeeled)
- 480 ml (2 cups) filtered/bottled water for soaking
- A pinch of Himalayan rock salt (sea salt)
Pour 480ml (2 cups) filtered/bottled into a large bowl/pan and stir in the salt. Add the almonds, making sure the nuts are completely covered with water. Cover and soak at room temperature for at least 8 hours, preferably up to 24 hours.
Drain and rinse the nuts.
Prepare a fine sieve or colander by lining with cheesecloth and placing it over a large bowl (if you have a nut milk bag, use that). In a large blender, combine the soaked almonds with the 480ml (2 cups) of fresh filtered/bottled water (not the same water you used for soaking). Puree with a handheld blender until smooth.
Pour the pureed mixture through the sieve or nut milk bag, using a spoon to push the liquid through. Strain well, squeezing the cheesecloth at the end to expel all the liquid.
Add the Modern Nature Liquid Stevia. Taste and add a little more if you would like it sweeter. Store in the refrigerator for up to 4 days 480 ml (2 cups) cold filtered water
