Chai with Soya Milk

Makes 1 cup (250 milliliters)

This traditional beverage is usually made with cow’s milk. In this recipe, we are using healthier alternative—soya milk.

1/3 cup (80 milliliters) water
2/3 cup (160 milliliters) soya milk
1 teaspoon (.5 gram) dry tea leaves
1/2 teaspoon (2.5 grams) chopped fresh ginger
1 cardamom pod
10-12 fresh mint leaves (if available)
sugar, to taste (optional)

Place all ingredients in a medium saucepan and bring slowly to a boil. When boiling, turn up the heat and swirl it around until it reaches the desired strength and the spices provide a kick. Strain it into a cup or small glass.

Variations: The soya milk can be replaced with almond milk, rice milk, or any other plant-based milk.
