Silk Vanilla Soy Milk is the base for this rich soy chai tea latte made with just two easy ingredients. This latte rivals those made in a coffee house and it’s much healthier for you. All you need to make the latte is is Vanilla Soy Milk and a chai tea bag or homemade chai tea concentrate.
I have been wanting to try cooking with soy milk for a while. I’ve never actually tasted it or cooked with it, but I kept thinking that chocolate or vanilla soy milk would just be fun to substitute in a few recipes for a different flavor. Of course, many of my friends drink soy milk out of necessity, too and I’d love to have a few recipes for them. I finally had the opportunity to give soy milk a try and created what has become one of my favorite winter beverages.
I had a lot of fun recipes in mind to try, but after tasting the Silk Vanilla Soy milk, I knew what I wanted to make with it – vanilla soy chai tea latte. The flavor of the vanilla soy milk was so rich and creamy that I knew it would be the perfect base for a chai tea. Plus, Silk has a great new soy iced latte and a tea option would be nice for non-coffee drinkers.
This was probably the best chai tea latte I’ve ever had and it took about 5 minutes to make at a fraction of the coffee house prices. I used a chai tea bag because I was out of my homemade chai tea concentrate. The latte was unbelievably creamy and the vanilla made the tea even more flavorful. Next time I need an afternoon treat, I’m making a big batch of cinnamon chip scones and some of this chai tea latte.
Aside from the amazing taste of the Silk Vanilla Soy Chai Tea Latte, it turns out that soy milk also has some seriously amazing health benefits. I did some research and discovered that soy milk is actually very low in saturated fat. Soy milk also provides as much calcium as milk and 6 grams of soy protein. Silk is also a natural source of omega-3s and protective antioxidants, is very low in saturated fat and is 100% cholesterol-free.
Most importantly to me, is that Silk Soy milk is Non-GMO verified. W hat does the“Non-GMO Project Verified seal” mean? Not genetically modified. The verification seal indicates that the product bearing the seal has gone through our verification process. Our verification is an assurance that a product has been produced according to consensus-based best practices for GMO avoidance. I try to avoid as much GMO food as I can and I applaud food companies who have taken the time and expense to become Non-GMO verified.
Two easy ingredients: Silk Vanilla Soy Milk and either a chai tea bag or homemade chai tea concentrate will get you the most delicious, and probably one of the healthiest, chai tea lattes you’ve ever had!
- 1 cup Silk Vanilla Soy Milk
- 1 chai tea bag or homemade chai tea concentrate
- Heat soy milk In a small pan over medium until hot, but not boiling. Do not let it come to a boil.

I’ve been perusing Silk’s recipe pages and they have a lot of fabulous recipes that I can’t wait to try and are a great resource for anyone who is dairy free.
