Recipe by Missy Wombat

This vegan drink is great when the weather is cooler. Something a little different. I also like to add cardamom.

WOW! Simply delicious! I made a mug of this for myself this morning using 1 cup of low-fat milk(I dont like the taste of soya milk, so I substituted with low-fat milk), 2 green cardamoms, 2 cloves, 1 tsp. sugar, 1/2 inch cinnamon stick and about 1/4 inch piece of ginger. This was really full of flavour! Thanks for a great recipe, Donna! This will be oh so wonderful on cool winter nights around a campfire:) I would call this "Masala or Spiced Milk Drink" than a "Chai drink" because Chai would mean tea leaves should be there in the drink, but this drink did not use that.. Just a thought I thought I should share...

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large cooking pot (at least twice the size needed to contain your soya milk), mix everything together and heat on high while stirring constantly.
  2. Bring to a boil (remember to stir constantly!), and the concoction will froth up.
  3. Remove from heat, let the froth subside, and repeat this cycle three more times.
  4. This is why your pot has to be bigger: the frothing would cause a major spill if you used a smaller pot.
  5. Serve and drink while hot.
