Honey Chai Cardamom Tea Latte with Silk Cashewmilk: a silky smooth, aromatic and comforting latte for the colder winter months. Chai tea, black cardamom, Silk Cashewmilk and honey simmer together, creating a uniquely healthier, indulgent mugful!
While rich and creamy Silk Cashewmilk may feel indulgent, it has fewer calories than skim milk and 50% more calcium. #Truth. It’s a new year and a new you, so no guilt here!
We’ve been dealing with lots of winter weather lately, had our first big Nor’easter just last week. When these winter storms hit hard, I’m reminded of my growing up years in the backwoods of Rhode Island. Our farmhouse sat on a fifteen acre plot and our next door neighbors had nearly a hundred.
When their pond froze over each winter, all of us kids traipsed over in snowsuits, hats, mittens and scarves, toting our skates along for a carefree afternoon on the ice. We didn’t realize then how spoiled we were to have an outdoor ice arena just around the corner, and our neighbors were so generous to share.
We also spent many afternoons careening down our toboggan hill at breakneck speeds, dodging overhanging branches all the way. It was terrific fun, and it’s a wonder I’m still here to tell about it.
Some days we skated on our smaller in-ground stone pool. In fact, we kids choreographed night ‘ice shows’ for my mom and dad – complete with floodlights, songs and skating. Sweet times and memories. Those nights were bitterly cold out on the ice, and coming into the kitchen to wrap our hands around a warm mug of cocoa or tea afterwards was just a little slice of heaven.
The winter activities we love so much in the Northeast chill us to the bone, so comforting, hot drinks are a necessity. During our last storm when I was craving a hot drink in my mug, I naturally remembered all the wonderful new products Silk has created, both creamers and dairy-free milks.
Silk Almondmilk, Silk Soymilk, Silk Cashewmilk, and Silk Coconutmilk… just to name a few. There are also delicious Silk Creamers for tea and coffee. Learn more about Silk here. Silk is featuring new product packaging, so be on the lookout!
Earlier in the week when I dropped by Walmart to pick up that prerequisite bread and milk before the storm, LOL, I found all the wonderful Silk products in the dairy case. I picked up a carton of Silk Cashewmilk, and since I got a new coffee maker for Christmas (woo hoo!), indulged in a few cartons of Silk creamer too.
(So far I’ve sampled the Hazelnut Silk and Almond Vanilla Silk creamers for a guilt-free splash of delish with fewer calories.) I had no idea that Silk creamers are not only dairy-free, but lactose-free, gluten-free and cholesterol-free too.
Silk dairy-free products mean a lot to us personally because our littlest guy Hudson has dairy sensitivities. I’m always on the lookout for Silk dairy-free products for his sippy cup. And we’ve found that with a new year and everyone in our house making healthier choices, we’re all enjoying these delicious plant-based Silk products too.
Create this easy Honey Chai Cardamom Tea Latte on the stovetop by simmering chai tea, black cardamom (peeled), and unsweetened Silk Cashewmilk together for a few minutes. Add a cinnamon stick if desired. Black cardamom, an Indian spice, adds a hint of warm smoky to the chai, and the Cashewmilk makes a rich and creamy mugful!
(I add only one cardamom pod to this recipe that serves two, because a little cardamom goes a long way. But if you prefer stronger cardamom overtones, just add more.)
Stir in honey for a natural sweetener, and a splash of your favorite Silk flavored creamer. Sprinkle with a dash of allspice or cinnamon, and you have a delicious, healthier Honey Chai Cardamom Tea Latte the whole family can sip together.

Aside from that one winter storm, it has been a veeeerry mild winter here in NC this year. I’m not complaining, but I do love a cold winter… wish we could switch places! 😉 Love this Honey Chai Cardamom Tea Latte! The flavor combination sounds so cozy and delicious! Plus I love that you used Silk Cashewmilk in these! I’m a huge fan! I could easily sip on this latte all day long! Cheers, girlfriend!

Can’t wait to try this chai recipe as well as the Silk coffee creamers! Can the cardamom pods be found at a regular grocery store? I know vanilla bean pods can but will have to keep an eye out for the cardamom pods. What a treat to get a story with a new recipe! Love them both!
Just started discovering and loving Chai tea and Chai latte. It’s a perfect treat before bedtime. Will try your recipe.

By s-word I mean snow – not the other s word…had to clarify cos sometimes in my books they go hand in hand – TMI I know! I’ll hush now – niot before saying, I’m a huge fan of Silk dairy free milks and creamers and am so loving this chai!
David @ Spiced says
I totally hear ya about needing warm drinks to keep us going through these cold Northeastern winters! Although I have to admit that your story about toboggan’ing reminded me a bit of my childhood. Fun times! I do love a good chai tea latte, and I totally need to try this version out. Thanks for sharing! #client

It’s so cold this morning that a cardamom tea latte sounds like the perfect way to warm up! This looks delicious!
Yummy, now I have a serious craving for that Silk Milk! That cup is gorgeous, by the way, I just love its shape and the glazes on it. Your childhood sounds magical – tobogganing, skating with such ease on the many hectares that surrounded you and your neighbours. Thanks for sharing, Allie, I really enjoyed the post. ☕️ Xoxo
Thank you Carina, I know we would enjoy a hot cup of this together, looking out from the warm on a snowy winter scene, right? 🙂 There is a story behind this mug. A dear friend of mine was in a local store last week, Savers. It’s a second hand shop kind of like Goodwill – not sure if you have them there. She saw this mug in a stack- it was obviously handmade and had a letter carved in the bottom – a T. Well her name is Tracy, but she said she immediately thought of ME. So for 99 cents she picked up this treasure and delivered it right to my doorstep last week, just in time for me to photograph this post. I love it! The shape is lovely, the handle fits perfectly in your hand, and it holds a lot of hot drink! I love the glazing, so glad you do too, and thankful Tracy picked it up for me! It was the perfect vessel for this cardamom chai tea. I hope you have a wonderful week Carina, stay warm if you can!!! XO
What a great story! How thoughtful of your friend to pass it along –
and generous! It would be kind of hard to part with such a find! Lol. Thrift shopping is such fun, I used to do it all of the time and found amazing things. I might be inspired to go again, soon, thanks to your cup. We don’t have Savers, but we have plenty of others. Yes, I know we’d have a lovely time, you and I, sitting with some hot drinks on a cold day. ? Enjoy the rest of the week. Xo

Cardamom chai with honey? This pretty blue cup is calling my name, Allie. Love that you added silk cashewmilk, I am sure it must have added so much flavor to this aromatic cup of winter goodness. Winter here is at its peak as well, so I can’t wait to grab that cuppa and enjoy cold. Loved reading about your childhood memories. Have a lovely week my friend. 🙂
