Sometimes we want our beverage to be a bit of a treat. I get it! Sometimes plain water isn’t going to cut it.

I’ve written before about how to make your water tasty and beautiful, but in the winter, sometimes it’s nice to have something warm.

Chai latte to the rescue! But not your coffee shop specialty that is full of refined sugar. This one is a quick, easy and homemade and will satisfy your desire for the warmth and spice that you find in the conventional version. The almonds and tahini (sesame seeds) add healthy fats and anti-inflammatory benefits to this beverage.

This Chai Latte recipe includes the spicy goodness of:

Ground cinnamon and cardamom – They are great for balancing blood sugar and also have anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant benefits. Be sure to look for real Ceylon cinnamon.

Ginger – A thumbnail of fresh ginger adds a delicious taste to so many dishes and this one is no exception. Its gastrointestinal health benefits are widely known, and it is also a great antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

I’ve written this recipe with the date being optional in case you are cutting out all forms of sugar (including natural ones). But for a treat it is super tasty if you include it! Oh, and don’t forget, this is recommended to be in addition to your 8 glasses of water.
