Dairy Free Chai Latte (with an ingredient you won’t believe!)

Dairy Free Chai Latte

Check out that yummy frothiness!

My husband has been on a chai streak lately.  I swear he drinks it by the gallon.  He made a huge batch and saved a little for me this morning (I think he just ran out of room in his gallon sized thermos but I’ll pretend he left me some on purpose).

Going dairy free doesn’t mean leaving lattes behind.  Nor does it mean having to resort to soy milk (bleh!).  Other milks like almond, cashew and coconut milk are ok but they just aren’t as rich as I would like.  In my dairy days (only a few weeks ago), I used cream to make my lattes.  So I guess technically they would be breves (I know there is an accent in there, I’m too lazy to find it.) Yes, it is possible to make a rich and creamy dairy free latte using…eggs.

I posted a recipe a few weeks ago for Egg and Butter Coffee Lattes.  This is basically the same concept using tea instead of coffee though I’m using ghee in place of butter.  Coconut oil would be a decent substitute or leave out the fat. I use Frontier’s herbal Chai Blend with black tea but you can assemble your own chai blend if you would like. Crunchy Betty has some great suggestions here: The Epic Guide to Making Your Own Chai Tea.

Mmm, breakfast in a cup.

Dairy Free Chai Latte

Ingredients

  • 8 oz near boiling water
  • 2 tsp tea (black, green, white or red all are yummy)
  • 1 tsp chai spices (make your own here: Chai Blend)
  • Sweetener to taste
  • 2 pastured eggs
  • 1-2 tbsp ghee (coconut oil or butter)

Instructions

  1. Add tea to water and let steep for 15 mins (5 mins for green or white tea). You can also use a pre-blended chai tea. Use 2 bags per serving, this works better with a strong brew.
  2. In a blender, whirl together the eggs, sweetener and fat (a stick blender in a large cup works great).
  3. Quickly pour in brewed tea while blending.
  4. Blend until smooth and frothy. Should only take about 10 seconds.

    Now when you say “pastured eggs”, do you mean I put my eggs in a pasture, or do you mean pasteurized? This fermented foods idea is new to me, well, except for pickles, and maybe sauerkraut.
