All the comforting taste of a Chai Latte, with health-boosting Chaga mushroom extract, in an easy 5-minute, dairy-free recipe.
Sweet, spicy, nourishing comfort. What’s not to love in a Chai Latte?
We decided to take that love even further and bring you a healthy Chai Latte recipe that is easy, gut-friendly, dairy-free, and boosted with Chaga Mushroom to take the anti-inflammatory and digestive benefits to the next level.
What you end up with is a medicinal, anti-inflammatory Chaga Chai Latte that nourishes your gut, while at the same time nourishing your pleasure senses.
Let’s dive into the details.
This simple Chaga Chai Latte recipe is not only pleasurable to drink, but while you’re sipping away, it’s providing your gut with some key nutrients it needs to optimize its health. In fact, the unique components of Chaga actually help to improve the number of your beneficial gut bugs, while limiting the number of pathogenic ones.
Besides acting as a prebiotic food source for your gut microbiome, the immense load of antioxidants in Chaga can further benefit your gut health. This is due to the fact that antioxidants can help to reduce inflammation, and inflammation in the gut is the root of various digestive complaints.
Anti-inflammatory - check.
Gut health - check.
Pleasurable to drink - check.
Easy to make - check.
Did we miss anything? Oh yes. This recipe is made with no weird preservatives, additives, or heavy doses of refined sugar that are often found in coffee shop Chai Lattes.
And that’s a healthy trend we like. So in that same boat, our Real Mushrooms Chaga (as with all our products) is made with absolutely no preservatives, additives, starches, or fillers that are often founded in powdered mushroom extracts.
All that to say, this healthy Chaga Chai Latte ticks all the boxes, making it a nourishing, comforting drink to weave into your everyday routine.
Cook Time: 5 minutes
*If you’re trying to avoid caffeine, you can use decaf black tea or just leave the tea out altogether and skip step 2.
** For the iced version, let the brewed chai completely cool and pour over a glass of ice.
Never underestimate the power of the simple pleasure found in sipping a nourishing beverage, especially when the beverage is loaded with health-boosting ingredients.
But, the only caveat is, you have to actually slow down enough to appreciate the nourishment.
Yes, this is an incredibly easy recipe that comes together in 5 minutes, but that just leaves more time for you to hit the pause button and enjoy drinking it.
Smell the sweet and spicy aroma, breathe, and take some time out of the hustle and bustle of your schedule - just for yourself, to be with your thoughts, your breath, and your beverage.
P.S. It’s especially enjoyable sipping out in nature.
