Holy moly this tea is a WINNER. I’ve been working on this one for a while and the addition of a very special ingredient has taken it from an 8 out of 10 to an off the charts out of 10!
I love every flavour in this tea – it’s smooth, soothing and delicious.
And of course, it’s packed FULL of nourishing nutrients from the coconut oil, cacao, maca, chili, cardamon, cinnamon, ginger and that special ingredient…
It’s basically an outrageously delicious hot chocolate, but healthy, alkaline and energizing.
Alkaline Chilli Chai Hot Chocolate
450ml coconut or almond milk
1 tbsp almond butter (note this is the secret ingredient, makes it SO creamy!)
2 tbsp organic cacao powder
1 inch of root ginger sliced
1 tsp cardamon powder
1 tsp cinnamon powder
1 red chilli (adjust to preference of heat)
1 tbsp coconut oil or MCT oil
- Start by slicing the ginger, and then add the ginger, milk, cacao, almond butter, spices and oil to a saucepan
- Simmer for 5-10 minutes and then transfer to a blender and blend on high speed until smooth and a froth has formed
- Sprinkle with cinnamon, serve and enjoy!
This is a fantastic one in the colder months…but can also be enjoyed on ice in summer too!
