Paleo Chai Latte (dairy free)

Paleo Chai Latte


Hot steaming mugs of Paleo Chai Latte on a rainy Sunday morning in bed, with the whole Sunday paper to share; my idea of heaven. A few tweaks to this ancient Indian favorite and paleo drinkers have an extraordinary rich, hot, morning drink.

 

There are a few types of chai tea. Masala chai, literally “mixed-spice tea”, is black tea brewed with Indian spices and herbs. A chai latte has steamed milk mixed into the tea. Inspired by the ancient traditional tea of India, my Paleo Chai Latte goes dairy and sugar-free to bring a soothing, hot cup of goodness to the paleo sphere. I, myself, use decaf tea as I do not like the overstimulated feeling I get from any caffeine. It tastes great with or without caffeine and with any number of black teas, so choose your favorite.

 

Paleo Chai Latte is not only delicious, the spices it contains have excellent anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial characteristics. Feel free to use more or less of any of the spices, as you prefer. You may also add almond extract to make this an Almond Chai Latte. For a thinner tasting tea, you can use lite coconut milk, almond milk alone, or increase the amount of water.

(Payton’s Paleo 30 Day Challenge friendly if stevia is used for sweetener)


1) Place water, all spices, and sweetener, into a small sauce pan and bring to a boil. (Don’t include the tea bags at this stage as tea tastes bitter if boiled.)

2) Reduce heat to low and add tea bags. Allow to steep for 5 minutes.

3) Add milk type of your choice and heat through while stirring.

4) Pour into heated mugs. (Use a strainer if you used whole cloves and cinnamon sticks.)

 

Enjoy this Paleo Chai Latte anytime you crave a little treat, or want to create a snuggly Sunday morning feeling at home, even when it’s not Sunday.
