AIP Chai Tea Latte Concentrate

AIP Chai Tea Latte ConcentrateChristmas is just around the corner and a nice hot cup of a Chai tea latte is sure to warm up even the coldest of days. It is warm, creamy, sweet, comforting and perfect for those 30 below zero mornings.  This recipe for Chai tea concentrate is is dairy, grain, egg, nut, and seed free. In other words my recipe is 100% autoimmune paleo protocol (AIP) compliant…just add water (and tea).

AIP Chai Tea Latte Concentrate   Lets take a look at the conventional Chai tea latte compared to my version. Traditional Chai tea lattes can cost a pretty penny at many coffee shops and not to mention loaded with sugar and a variety of inflammatory spices not allowed on the autoimmune Paleo protocol. These spices include nutmeg, cardamon, all spice, anise, and fennel. My version has the exact opposite…. wallet friendly, less sugar, and the use of spices that ARE allowed on AIP such as cloves, ginger, and cinnamon.

AIP Chai Tea Latte Concentrate   The beauty of making your own Chai tea latte concentrate at home is that it become very customizable to your tastes and preferences. The concentrate can be made as sweet as you want by adding more or less of your favorite or least preferred spices. My recipes seem to always run with a common theme…being extremely adaptable to personal tastes and preferences. AIP Chai Tea Latte Concentrate  I tend to make my recipes with the customizable aspect because I find that when I cook or bake I tend to stray from the recipe to do my own thing. Many times when I start making a new dish or baked good I have every intention of not deviating from the recipe, but somehow it just happens. I add one or two to several ingredients here or there that I hope would make it better. Then I have a whole new product on my hands that I created, which may only need one or two adjustments to bring to perfection. AIP Chai Tea Latte ConcentrateHowever, there are several times in my past cooking history that sticking to the recipe would have been a good thing (AKA cooking fails). These cooking fails have only made me all the more wiser in “what” and “what not” to do.

AIP Chai Tea Latte ConcentrateWinter in the Midwest means cold, cold, cold, and more cold. Meaning many of us are looking for ways to stay warm in the frigid weather.  Last week when we hit temperatures with wind chills of 30 below zero I devised this tasty concentrated creation; and with Christmas coming up this weekend, a cup of this tea would be a perfect treat for Christmas morning. AIP Chai Tea Latte ConcentrateI want to wish you all a safe, blessed, and joyous Christmas filled with family, friends, and many memories. With all the hustle and bustle Christmas brings let us not forget about Jesus, the reason for this wonderful season of giving, peace, and love. May each day be merrier and brighter than the last.   Merry Christmas!

AIP Chai Tea Latte Concentrate

Ingredients

  • 1/2 c . full fat coconut milk
  • 1/4 c . water
  • 1/2 tsp . ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3-4 Tbs . granulated sweetener coconut sugar, granulated stevia, etc

Instructions

  1. Please note: Water may not be needed in this recipe if the coconut milk used is not super thick. The milk I used was very thick and needed to be thinned. If your coconut milk is a little runny and flows when pouring don't add water. The ingredients may need to be adjusted accordingly after mixing and tasting in tea.
  2. Mix all ingredients together in a mason jar. These ingredients can also be blended together. If the ingredients are mixed together in a mason jar, the concentrate may look a little chunky from the coconut milk. The chunks will not matter as they will be dissolved by the hot tea.
  3. Add 2 Tbs. to 1/4 c. to 1 cup of hot brewed tea (plain green, black or oolong tea).

Recipe Notes

NOTE: Add more or less of the sweetener and spices if desired. I would suggest doubling the spices and sweetener if you like a bolder and stronger flavor.
