In the days before I went on a journey to heal my hormonal acne, chai was my fave. I would happily drink an iced chai latte several times a week. These days, thanks to my very pesky cinnamon sensitivity, I have to be a bit more mindful of my consumption. But as the curious gal that I am and the resident recipe tester for all my friends, I knew I needed to find a refined sugar free/keto alternative.
There are a few ways to make chai. You can opt for the concentrate version with a bit of added non-dairy milk. Or you can make your own concentrate and supplement with syrup. Today I’m giving you both options. I’m all about making the most of what we already have in our kitchens. So if you fell in love with the vanilla syrup from my iced vanilla latte post, you can DIY your chai concentrate here and keep your kitchen essentials more limited.
Nevertheless, it’s always good to know you can make your favorite latte while still reaching your goals. I’m so thankful for all the amazing companies that have created products that allow us to enjoy our faves without feeling deprived. Going refined sugar free was major in helping me heal my gut & my hormonal acne. So I hope that if you’re on the same journey, this recipe helps you too!
If you make it, be sure to tag me on instagram and let me know! My love language is words of affirmation so it makes my day when you babes share in our community. Sending you all the love and positive vibes. Xoxo, Savvy
Iced Chai Latte
A healthier version of your favorite Starbucks drink. Paleo, keto and vegan friendly!
- 2 tbsp chai syrup **see note for diy alternative
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1/2 cup ice
- 1 shot espresso optional
Add chai syrup, almond milk and espresso (if using) to your favorite mug.
Stir to combine.
Add in ice.
Pop in a straw and enjoy. You now have your fave iced latte to conquer your day!
*I love to use to NuNaturals syrups. They are keto, vegan and paleo friendly! But you can also rock this DIY with just some chai tea bags. Steep 3 bags of chai in 10 oz of water for 5-8 minutes. Then add 1/4-1/2 cup of tea concentrate in place of the 2 tbsp of syrup. You'll also want to add a different sweetener. Maple syrup is great for paleo/vegan diets. Stevia or NuNatural's Vanilla Syrup is fab as well.
