This conversation is sponsored by Silk. The opinions and text are all mine.

A few years ago I went on an interview for a personal assistant job. I thought I was ready for a change and figured a new job would be a good place to start.

I left one cool fall day for the interview and when I pulled into the driveway I was met by a spunky lady who welcomed me into her house with a big mug of freshly made chai tea. I had had chai tea before but nothing like what she had made. It was slightly sweet and had the best ginger burn. She told me she made it every morning and poured it into 3 different sized mugs. A small one for at first and then 2 progressively larger mugs. That way each mug was still hot by the time she got to it.

Pretty genius in my opinion.

I ended up not getting the job but a few months after my interview I sent her an email asking her if she would mind sharing her chai latte recipe. I felt a little odd asking for a recipe from a lady who didn’t hire me but I went for it. Luckily she emailed me back a few days later and was happy to share.

This vegan soy chai tea latte version is changed just slightly to use Silk unsweetened soy milk instead of whole milk. I’m certainly not anti-dairy but I do like to change things up now and again. It’s a fun change that I find works most of the time. This delicious latte was just as delicious as the one I had on my interview and it’s dairy free.

Basically, this is my new rainy day treat.

Wow, this sounds delicious! I love Chai but it is so expensive to buy out (and not always as good) and you're right, it is better at home :) I am going to try this recipe. Thanks!
