Chai spice mix
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
2 teaspoons ground ginger
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
3 cardamom pods
½ nutmeg, grated
150ml coconut milk
100ml full fat milk or any plant based milk of your choice
½ teaspoon chai spice
1 teaspoon agave or maple syrup
1 tablespoon of Blue Coconut oil, either virgin or refined
70g dark chocolate
Mix the ground spices together. Crush the cardamom and cloves with a pestle
and mortar (or rolling pin) and add them to the ground spice mix, along with the finely-grated nutmeg.
Pour both milks and chai spice into a small pan and bring to a near boil. Remove from heat, cover, and allow to infuse for 30 minutes. Then, strain the milk through a fine sieve, return to pan, add agave or maple syrup, and heat to about 60°C. Add the dark chocolate and coconut oil then give it a good whisk.
If you have a coffee machine with a steamer wand hand, you can froth your drink until airy!
