This mug of hot chai almond milk is so comforting that you’ll be wishing for a rainy day or a snow storm! Not that you have to wait for these exact weather conditions but it’s pouring rain as I’m writing this and I’m telling you, it could go on for hours and I wouldn’t care. That’s what my hot drink does to me (kinda sounds like a love song huh?).

Also, it’s ridiculously easy to make and only lightly sweetened with maple syrup – which obviously strengthens my love even more. I’m honestly not sure I’m legally allowed to call this a “recipe” because besides placing all the ingredients in a pot and simmering for 15 minutes, well… there’s not much you need to do. And then…it’s the holidays, and everything you love about winter, directly in your mouth. Soul warming, I’m telling you!
