  • Pumpkin Pie Chai

    This recipe is simple and easy, no flavorings or extracts, just pumpkin purée, chai concentrate, your choice of milk, a little molasses, and whipped cream. 

    Don’t have our chai concentrate on hand? No problem at all! Just boil your cup of chai as usual from our loose leaf (the Original or the Red Chai for a caffeine-free option), and start following the video after the chai is prepared- add the pumpkin and molasses and finish off with whip!

    1/2 cup chico chai concentrate 

    1/2 cup milk/unmilk (the richer the better)

    2 Tablespoons pumpkin purée 

    1/2 teaspoon molasses

    whipped cream to top


    Heat the chai concentrate and milk together on the stovetop in a small pot. Add the pumpkin and molasses and whisk to integrate. Pour into your favorite festive mug and top with whipped cream. Lovely with a little fresh-ground nutmeg on top!
