Good Clean Chai Latte

Our Good Clean Chai Latte recipe has the sweet and spicy flavor that you love, and it is so easy to make at home. We love a warm and cozy cup on a chilly fall morning, or served over ice as an afternoon pick-me-up. It’s dairy-free, naturally sweetened, and has wonderful health benefits to boot!

Chai Tea Health Benefits

Not only is chai tea delicious, but it also has many health benefits!

Good For Digestion: Cinnamon, ginger and cloves calm the stomach, and have properties that decrease bloating.

Antioxidant-Rich: Black tea is the base of most chai tea, and is antioxidant-rich, (especially in flavonoids) which support heart health.

Reduced Caffeine: Yes, black tea does have caffeine, but it has half the amount of caffeine than a cup of black coffee.

Anti Inflammatory: Ginger and cinnamon are two of the main ingredients in our DIY chai spice - both are known for their anti-inflammatory properties.

2 cups unsweetened almond milk (or milk of choice)
2 black tea bags (we like to use Darjeeling)
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon , or to taste
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger (or 1 tablesoon freshly grated)
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
3 tablespoons maple syrup

Heat up the almond milk in a saucepan over medium-high heat, until it begins to bubble around the edges of the pan. Turn off the heat, and add the 2 tea bags to the pot of hot milk. Wait 3 to 5 minutes for the tea to steep, then remove the bags.

Add in the cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and maple syrup. Whisk to combine, stirring over medium heat, until the mixture is piping hot.

Adjust any seasoning to your taste and serve immediately, or you can cool in the fridge to be served over ice. Serve with a little fresh grated ginger and a sprinkle of cinnamon on top.
