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.

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

Hi, what if I use organic chai tea bags with the almond and coconut milk, do you think that it will compare to the taste? Dont always have time for making the full recipe.

Reply

Yes, you can do that! Any ready-made chai tea bags will work.

I LOVE chi tea but does it really need the fennel seed?

Reply

I think they do give the tea an authentic chai taste but if you're not a fan, you can skip them 😊

Martina, I love you!!!! ❤️ Since going Keto I have so missed my Cafe Escapes chai tea (1 serving = 9 net carbs!)... I used to drink 2 cups a day...ahhh, but no more. Until I found your Keto recipe!! I just made it, It was heavenly, and one cup a day (3.6 net carbs) will fit into my daily macros! You have made me a very happy camper!!!!

Thank you so much for your kind words!

I have searching all over for a good chai tea recipe. This is it. I love it. Thanks for sharing 😊

Reply

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!

Reply

2-3 cups. Hope you like it! 😊

Reply

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 😊

Reply

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

Reply

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 😊 I'll definitely post a recipe on my blog too.

Reply

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 😊

Reply

Looks great!  Great change from coffee.

Reply

Thank you Mel!! Yes, it's great when you don't want to drink too much coffee 😊

Reply

I love chai tea but never tried making my own. thanks for the recipe 😊

Reply
