If you’re looking for a tasty and nutritious chai latte recipe, you’ve come to the right place.
In this recipe, I use MUD\WTR as a base: a coffee alternative of mine 5 coffee alternatives to wake up list
If you don’t have access to MUD, I recommend finding a trusted masala chai mix.
This is why MUD\WTR is my top choice for making a chai latte:
- Mud is full of adaptogens that can help with mental and physical performance, such as lion’s mane, chaga and reishi mushrooms (you can’t taste them!)
- It is very easy to prepare – just add hot water or milk/nut milk of your choice.
- It has no sugar, no added sweetener or added flavors; you can sweeten it to your liking with any sweetener of your choice.
This time in India, a saddhu (ascetic) invited me into his house made of cow dung and made me a cup of dreamy buffalo milk chai. This recipe brings me right back!
Ingredients to make 1 portion of chai latte:
- 1 – 1.5 spoons MUD\WTR – depending on how strong you like it
- 1/3 cup fresh boiled water
- 1 cup steamed oat milk or other milk of your choice
- 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, chopped or shaved
- 1-2 teaspoons of mango fruit or coconut sugar
- Place 1-1.5 tbsp MUD\WTR and sweetener of your choice (optional) in a cup from which you will drink
- Add 1/3 cup of fresh boiled water and mix well until the powder dissolves
- Steam 1 cup of milk (I love oat milk) and pour it over your MUD\WTR with hot water
- Serve with fresh ginger on top
- Set an intention and enjoy!
