Chai Tea Latte

Chai Tea Latte – super easy guilt-free homemade Chai Latte that is rich, creamy, spicy and sweet. A perfect warm blend to lighten you up especially on these cool days.
Check this out and see what an early Christmas present feels like in October.  If you like fresh, spicy, sweet and milky tea then you’re in luck. Your tastes buds are going to linger over the Chai Latte blend guaranteed to give you a sensational buzz… oh did I mention it is almost guilt free.
‘Chai’ is spiced milk tea originating from India and well-liked in East Africa, particularly in Kenya where the beverage is often served alongside the East African Spiced doughnuts (Mandazi)
It is a combination of black tea, milk and a heightened mélange of spices that include cinnamon, anise, clove, cardamom and ginger. Finally it is sweetened with a touch of sugar or honey. (Yes you could leave that part out if you wish).
I am a huge Chai fan; I love it served hot or cold, consumed in the former part of the day because of the possible calorie content. See I am one of those people that always has buyer’s remorse or may should I say ‘Drinker’s’ remorse. I can easily gulp a big cup of latte which would sit comfortably in my tummy for a long time using up most my precious calories for the day, geez.
 
This chai tea though is different – lightened up with lesser calories per serving but still maintaining its rich, creamy and spicy taste. The key ingredient?, I use coconut milk which is rich in flavor, creamy and is 60 calories per cup ,sweetened with Splenda, then topped with fat-free  whipped cream which is 5 teaspoons per serving. You may use honey if you  wish.
The ratio here is 1 cup of water to 2 cups of drinkable coconut milk (the ones sold in the carton at the local supermarket) not the canned coconut milk cream. For best results, you can make your own coconut milk featuredhere. It is 10x tastier than any store-bought milk especially with this tea. Serve it with this East African Doughnut
Notes
  • Use regular milk , and adjust the spices, sugar  with more or less to suit tastebuds
