Happy Monday, friends!
How was your weekend? We are in Charlottesville for the day, visiting my chiro and getting some much needed shopping done at Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s, which is pretty much my happy place.
Last Thursday, we set up our new Nespresso machine (shop the exact one here) and I am already completely obsessed. Starbucks had become a dangerous habit now that they added almond milk to their menu, so we were looking for a more cost effective way to indulge our coffee habit anyway, and then I happened to win this Nespresso Pixie machine!
It’s super easy to use, cleans up really easily as well, and the Pixie size is perfect for our small kitchen. I’ve been making this dirty chai latte w/ unsweetened vanilla almond milk every morning since and I am completely in love!
On Saturday morning, I also added a little of this fancy maple syrup for an even more decadent version–so good!
Dirty Chai Latte
3/4 cup steeped chai tea
1.5 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 shot nespresso
Combine chai tea, almond milk, and maple syrup in a small sauce pan. Heat on high until boiling then transfer into a large cup. Froth with frother.
Meanwhile, make espresso according to nespresso directions. Place in desired coffee mug.
Top with steamed chai almond milk mixture, add cinnamon, and enjoy!
