I love comforting and warm drinks this time of year.
If you do too, make this (better than) Starbucks keto chai tea latte! Chai tea is a bold and flavorful black tea infused with delicious spiced flavors like cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, cloves, and black pepper. Adding steamed “milk” makes for a cozy latte that’s perfect to enjoy on a chilly day.
Let’s make a keto chai latte!
Starbucks has a yummy version that’s unfortunately full of sugar and not at all keto, so today I’m sharing how you can EASILY make your own that tastes even better in my opinion, and is low in carbs! Plus, you’ll be saving money by making yours at home any time you’re craving one.
BREW, SWEETEN, & FROTH!
Some recipes online include buying all the spices and brewing them with black tea. I think a great shortcut is to use tea bags that have all those yummy chai spices already included. I recently asked a Starbucks barista how she would make a Keto-friendly chai latte and she suggested Tazo chai tea as a great base for a latte. She advised using two tea bags to yield a stronger result when brewing.
Sweeten to taste using your favorite keto sweetener. I used liquid Stevia drops in my latte, and for my milk, I used coconut cream from a can. It was so YUMMY and creamy! You can also opt to use almond milk or heavy whipping cream, but you’ll need to adjust nutritional info.
I happen to have this little handheld milk frother and LOVE it. It makes great homemade lattes! The coconut cream definitely frothed up nicely, too. You can alternatively do your best with a whisk or even use an immersion blender.

Such a delicious chai latte result!
I love the bold flavors of this tea as a creamy and frothy latte. What a comforting drink that’s also keto-friendly. I think this is an even better result than Starbucks, and it’s super easy to make yourself!
Oooh, yum! Thanks for sharing!
Yummy! Definitely make again. I used whipping cream instead of coconut.
Great! Thanks for sharing Jocelyn!
Can this be done iced and do we need t0 adjust it
I would totally ice it! Just get it iced before adding the coconut cream. If it’s not creamy enough cold, then add heavy whipping cream. It would be yummy!
Can I use the Keurig chai latte for this?
Ya I bet that would be tasty too!
Any tips on how to froth the milk without this device?
Hi there! You could also try with a whisk or even use an immersion blender. Hoping that helps!

I made this tonight with an off brand off Chai, I should have spent the extra dollar for Tazo. The flavor wasn’t strong enough even with 2 bags.
Also I blended coconut milk to add to the Chai. It wasn’t frothy enough.
Trial and error
ooo love tazo chai. Excited to try it ketofied!
Wahoo! Enjoy the ketofied version!
