Almond spiced chai


Chai is traditionally made with black tea, but I am not a fan, I just didn’t grow up drinking tea leaves. My friends always want to drink Chai, so I created this little pocket of yummy glory. – Chef Cynthia Louise



1 cup soaked almonds (soaked overnight rinsed well and drained)

3 cups water

1 vanilla bean

1 whole clove

1 whole cardamom

1 cinnamon stick

2 tbs honey

¼ tsp cayenne pepper

Pinch of salt

and creamy

2.  Add this to a pot along with the rest of the ingredients and slowly bring to the boil(but do not boil) takes around 3 minutes.

3.  Turn of the heat when it is hot enough to drink,let rest then strain,serve in small cups
