Chocolate Chai Latte

Home-Made, Slightly Healthy, Chocolate Chai Latte

What a stormy day that was yesterday (and still is this morning)! Now we all know autumn really is here. After getting home cold and completely soaked during the storm, I decided to try my hand at making my own home-made and slightly healthy chocolate chai latte.

Fond Memories of Chocolate Chai Latte
Chai latte is one of my very favourite drinks, and some years ago, my mum gave me a can of instant chocolate chai latte. It was utterly delicious! But when I gave up refined sugar, I also stopped drinking the instant chai, as the main ingredient of the mix was sugar.

Walking in the Rain
So, yesterday I went out to do some shopping, and thought that walking to town would be a good idea. That way I would get some exercise and fresh air as well, and so I took the long way around to enjoy the autumn storm in its fullest. Which was lovely, really! But I was also glad to be back home and after changing into dry clothes, I wanted some warming and comforting to drink. That was when I started to think about that chocolate chai latte. I missed drinking that, so maybe I could try to make my own, improved version of it.

And that’s how this home-made, slightly healthy, chocolate chai latte came into being.

chocolate chai latte ingredients


Home-Made, Slightly Healthy, Chocolate Chai Latte

  • One bag of chai tea (I used Marks & Spencer’s black chai)
  • Hot water
  • A slosh of milk of choice (I used rice milk)
  • One very high heaping teaspoon of cocoa powder (or maybe you can say it is two normal teaspoons)
  • A teaspoon of maple syrup


  1. Bring water to a boil and pour in your mug together with the teabag. Steep for a couple of minutes.
  2. Remove teabag and add cocoa powder. Stir well!
  3. Then add a slosh of milk and maple syrup. Stir again.
  4. Ready to drink!

This Chocolate Chai Latte and a batch of freshly baked granola, I don’t need anything more to be happy!

No Mix Needed
Can you believe how very simple it is? And I found it to be tasting exactly the same as the pre-made mix. Maybe it tasted even better! And that without the sugar and synthetic additives. So you see, you don’t need them!

Hmm, I think I just might be making this chocolate chai quite often in the future…
