Chai tea lattes are almost a necessity this time of year — but the nasty hidden ingredients and costly price of store-bought ones made me rethink my obsession.
This Creamy Collagen Chai Tea Latte recipe makes a rich, frothy, warming, grounding, and subtly sweet chai — AND the sneaky little addition of marine collagen strengthens brittle hair and nails throughout this dry season.
Creamy Collagen Chai Tea Latte
Makes 2 servings
1 400 mL can coconut milk
1/4 cup water
2 tbsp ground chai
2 scoops marine collagen
1 tbsp date paste
touch of maple syrup
optional shot of organic, fair-trade espresso*
In a small pot on medium-low heat, simmer the coconut milk, water, and chai for five minutes.
Remove from heat and strain into a high-powered blender.
Add the remaining ingredients and blend on high until well combined and frothy. (I use a Vitamix Pro 750 series and blend for approx 1 minute on the The Hot Soup setting)
Pour into your favourite mug, breathe in, and be prepared to melt away.
**tip #1: canned coconut milk works best but canned coconut cream with equal parts water works well too. If you don’t desire such a rich and creamy chai, opt for light coconut milk or simply add more water.
**tip #2: look for good quality chai mixes that are ground from whole spices.
**tip #3: opt for marine collagen that ensures sustainability.
Isn’t this the perfect addition to a cozy night in by the fire? Make sure to share your creations on Instagram with the hashtag #holisticheels!
