Vegan Chai Pumpkin Latte

Crazy coffee-chain creations, and coffee at all for that matter, chai from powders, sticky sweet flavoured lattes – they just aren’t for me. A clean straight-up green chai, a pure and floral white, even an occasional peppermint – that is much more my cup of tea, pardon the pun.

But this? This is the goodness of chai spices and the decadence of pumpkin all wrapped up in a creamy warm mug of magic for Tea Time Tuesday. I probably could should have called it a Pumpkin Pie Latte…

Now if I was playing the good-food-blogger-calendar game I would have posted this in November or December. That’s when everyone in America-land searches for holiday pumpkin recipes, it’s when sites like The Kitchn and Epicurious and Saveur look for special creations to feature, it’s when every non-Christmas decorating pin on Pinterest is a pumpkin one.

And there is a good chance this has been sitting on my computer since the middle of December, ahem, but who am I to follow the rules? And besides, it’s pumpkin season right now in Sydney. A Chai Pumpkin Latte is not only seasonally appropriate but a perfect foil for the cold weather infiltrating my bones, plus there was no way I was going to make you wait another 5 or 6 months for this special creation.

My addiction to pumpkin and Pumpkin Pie has been well documented here so turning the versatile gourd into a drink shouldn’t surprise you too much, let’s be honest, I’d eat pumpkin every day if I could.

Now I’m off to put on another layer of clothing, steam up some pumpkin and make this latte for dessert. I highly recommend you do the same.
