The weather is changing and fall is in the air. The red cups are not out yet, but I have Chai Tea Lattes on the mind! Now that we are trying to eat clean, I am on a mission to find recipes to make at home so I can control what goes in it! This Clean Eating Chai Tea Latte recipe will have you skipping the coffee stands (and saving some money in the process!)
Clean Eating Chai Tea Latte Recipe
This morning was busy. We had to be out the door by 9:30am (on a Sunday) and I don’t know what happened to the time! I was making breakfast and when I asked Alexa what time it was, she said 9:24. What?? I started yelling “Get dressed! We have to go!”. Before I knew it we were in the car and on our way. We didn’t even have time to stop at the coffee stand, so we made it through the morning caffeine free.
Fast and Easy Chai Tea Latte with less sugar
By the time we got home in the early afternoon, I had just enough time to whip this together. This Clean Eating Chai Tea Latte is so warm and delicious that even my husband (who doesn’t typically like lattes) will drink it. My father in law likes to buy the Oregon Chai concentrate which is delicious but it has 25 grams of sugar! So I was inspired to find my own recipe. For the last few months, I’ve been loving this Pumpkin Spice Latte, but it was time for a change!
For simplicity, I like to use the Tazo Tea Chai flavor. If you prefer, you can make your own Chai using black tea, cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, cloves and vanilla. The best part of making our own Latte is that we can adjust the sweetness to our preferences. My husband prefers just one tablespoon of honey while I like closer to 2 Tbsp. Want more cinnamon? Go ahead and add as much as you want!
Be sure to let me know what you think! Happy Fall!!
