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! 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 this 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 frothed up nicely. You can alternatively do your best with a whisk or even use an immersion blender.
Enjoy these bold, spiced flavors as a Chai Tea Latte, perfect to warm up with on chilly days.
