If you’re looking for something start your day with during Veganuary, look no further! This Pecan Mocha Dirty Chai is just the thing and is perfect for the colder winter months (even if you still want to enjoy it iced instead of hot!).

I’m happy to be collaborating with PKN for this delicious recipe! Have you ever had pecan milk?! PKN’s pecan milk is truly *chef’s kiss*, both the original & chocolate flavors! For this recipe, I used the chocolate flavor to create the “mocha” part of the drink, and it adds a beautiful pecan flavor to the dish & makes it insanely creamy!

Did you know the pecan is the only native nut to the US? I honestly had no clue until I came across PKN! It’s pretty crazy that out of all the nut milks in existence, pecan milk is truly the only native/most eco-friendly one of them all! What does all this mean exactly? That they use minimal water and resources to grow, are drought resistant & climate resilient, and can be sourced from regenerative farmers! Not to mention the crazy health benefits pecans provide. All around, pecan milk gets a big stamp of approval from me!

You can purchase PKN on amazon, as well as thispkn.com and can find them on instagram @thispkn if you’re wanting to try their pecan milks or learn more about the sustainability of pecans! You can also use my code “BRIANNA20” at checkout for 20% off orders on their site only!

I really hope you are able to try this delicious drink & that you are participating in veganuary whether you’ve been vegan for years, or are just trying to incorporate some vegan options into your routine for the new year!
