Low-Carb Chai Tea Latte

Last week was my 30th birthday! For my birthday party, I baked a keto-friendly Boston Cream Pie. Everyone, including my carb-addicted friends loved it and some didn't even realise it was gluten and sugar-free! This recipe and many others will be in my new cookbook which is available to preorder now and will be out in December 2015 :-)

Now, back to this week's recipe... Chai Tea Latte is great not for just cold winter days. In fact, I often make it chilled served with ice! I don't like it too sweet and only use a small amount of sweetener but you can use more if you have a sweet tooth.

Ingredients (makes 2 servings):

Chai tea mixture:
Mix with:

Note: You can get unsweetened almond milk in most supermarkets or on-line. However, if you can, make your own almond milk to avoid any unnecessary additives.

Instructions

  1. Mix all the spices and place them in a tea bag or directly into a pot with boiling water. I used paper tea bags like these.
  2. Add black tea bags into the pot with boiling water.
  3. Simmer for 20-25 minutes. Remove and discard the tea bags and strain if needed.
  4. Heat up the almond and coconut milk (or cream) and pour in a glass. Add the chai tea mixture, stir and enjoy!
    You can make the chai tea mixture in advance and store it in the fridge. When needed, heat it up and mix with almond milk and coconut milk (or cream).

Hi! This looks great. How much water do you boil to add the spices too? I ask so that I don't make it too diluted. Thanks so much!

Do you ever make an iced version, or any thoughts on how to? Is it as simple as chilling it and pouring over ice, or is there a change to the recipe (like one would do with iced vs hot coffee)?

Reply

Hi Steve, yes, I'd do that - just chill and serve over ice Smile

Do you know how to make unsweetened almond milk? I'd love to add that to this recipe! Thanks!

Hi Kim, yes, I usually make my own using blanched or "regular" almonds, blend them in a food processor and pour in a nut milk bag. Then I dehydrate the pulp and use it instead of almond meal Smile I'll definitely post a recipe on my blog too.

Instead of cardamom pods, how much cardamom powder would I use?

Reply

Hi Marsha, I'd use 1/4 teaspoon of cardamom powder - should be about the same Smile
