Renew: Spiced Chai Tea Latte with Almond Milk

Filed Under > Breakfast & Brunch

Chai Almond Milk Latte recipe

There’s nothing I love more than coffee, especially when I have a moment to indulge in a latte at one of my many favorite coffee shops around town.  But for some reason I always forget to indulge in them when I’m at home!  So this month, I set out to change that as I celebrated the little luxuries that just make life better.  And that, for me, is a great chai tea latte.  A perfectly frothy, creamy, spiced but not too sweet almond milk chai tea latte. Plus the ingredients in chai have loads of health benefits.

Black tea is loaded with antioxidants that can help prevent cardiovascular disease, lower cholesterol, and help fight against some kinds of cancer.  Ginger reduces inflammation in the body and is an antioxidant that can lower blood sugar levels, help with nausea and other gastrointestinal ailments. Cardamom, one of my favorite spices, helps with digestion and strengthens the immune system while cinnamon helps control blood sugar and is also one of those good on the gut spices.  Through its fiber content, fennel, can help lower cholesterol and has high levels of potassium and vitamin C.  Cloves have some antibacterial properties, helps fight ulcer pain and aides in digestion. And lastly, black pepper can affect your metabolism in a good way, and may help to prevent the accumulation of fat in the body. 

Making a chai latte is actually pretty simple once you get the hang of it (and shameless plug if you have this tea maker you’ll never go back to the old school stove top way again).  You’ll need warm chai spices, loose leaf organic black tea, and unsweetened organic almond milk, a dash of maple syrup (agave or stevia works too), and a pinch of cinnamon.  Next all you’ll do is steep your tea and chai spices in boiling water.  Here you can sweeten the pot with maple syrup, agave syrup or stevia, and add your almond milk.  I like mine extra creamy, so I’m a little heavy handed when I mix in this step!  To top it all off, I sprinkle a dash of ground cinnamon.  Then voila, a frothy chai tea latte you could order down the street is piping hot and ready to enjoy in the comforts of your home! And P.S. this tastes just a good poured over some ice and enjoyed cold.  Truly, MKR
