Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes


  • 2 cups oat milk
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp ground all spice
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • Pinch of ground cardamom
  • Pinch of ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 4 tbsp cocoa powder
  • Splash of hot water

Whipped Cream

  • 4 tbsp coconut cream from a tin of coconut milk
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup


Place the milk and maple syrup in a saucepan on medium heat.

Mix the spices and cocoa powder in a cup and add a splash of hot water, mixing until it becomes a paste.

Place this in with the milk and stir well. Leave to warm up on a gentle simmer.

Place the coconut cream and maple syrup in a bowl, mix with a hand held mixer (or whisk) until fluffy and whipped.

Pour the chai hot chocolate into mugs, top with the whipped cream and decorate with extra spices or cocoa powder.


I use Oatly Barista milk. You can also use a different kind of plant milk, but I find oat milk to be the creamiest and frothiest.
