Chai Spiced Hot Chocolate (Vegan)

Chai Spiced Hot Chocolate (Vegan)

A semi-homemade version of Williams-Sonoma’s chai hot chocolate. Two of your favorite beverages combine to form something spicy and decadent! This vegan version uses almond milk, but you could sub dairy milk just as easily.



Level: Easy

Serves: 2


  • 2 cups Plain Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • 1 bag (Single-serving Size) Chai Tea
  • ¼ cups Hershey’s Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 2 Tablespoons Sugar
  • ⅛ teaspoons Vanilla Extract


In a heat-proof dish (such as a Pyrex glass measuring cup), microwave almond milk until hot, about 4 minutes, stopping and stirring every minute or so.

Remove from microwave and steep the chai tea bag in the almond milk for about 2 minutes. Discard tea bag.

Stir in cocoa powder, sugar, and vanilla. If necessary, microwave for an additional minute to dissolve sugar.

Whisk or blend to get it nice and frothy, being careful not to spill. (You may have to transfer to a different dish/bowl for this.) Pour into two small mugs to serve.
