Paleo Rooibos Chai Tea Latte

Paleo Rooibos Chai Tea Latte

Chai tea latte recipe & content provided by Joshua Weissman

Traditional chai tea lattes contain a blend of rich black tea, fragrant cardamom, and spicy cinnamon, all mixed together with milk instead of water. Adding dairy makes the OG chai tea deep and rich with a creamy mouthfeel, but it’s tough to enjoy if you want to avoid dairy or lactose.

The solution to the perfect clean chai tea latte? Swap the traditional milk with coconut milk to capture a similar creaminess that melds perfectly with the warm spices in this recipe. Plus, coconut milk add a layer of richness and sweet flavor with every sip.

Since this paleo chai latte recipe also swaps out black tea with caffeine-free rooibos tea, this recipe is perfect for enjoying in the evening (especially when you add raw honey, which can help you sleep). For a more keto-friendly option, simply swap it with birch xylitol or non-GMO erythritol.

Warm spices meet sweet and creamy coconut milk in this upgraded chai tea latte recipe that only takes 10 minutes to make. Keto- and paleo-friendly.
