As some of you know, I made some radical health changes at the end of August that have majorly impacted my life in really incredible ways — including allowing me to completely get off all of the meds and supplements I’ve been on for acne, eczema, and anxiety.
One of the big changes was going completely off of coffee. Yes, for real. For 16 weeks now, I’ve not had a cup of coffee.
I missed it really, really badly at first. Like, I wanted to cry I missed it so dreadfully.
And it didn’t help that I had raging headaches and felt lethargic for the first week after I went off of it cold turkey.
But 16 weeks later, I can tell you that the health changes I’ve experienced are every bit worth not drinking coffee. And my goal is to never drink it again.
I have so much more energy, I’m sleeping so much better, I have so much less anxiety, and I’m so much happier overall. So it’s worth it.
But I do love me a warm drink, so I’ve experimented with a few different healthier decaf options and have come up with one that I absolutely love.
It helps that Jesse surprised me by buying this amazing frother and I can’t say enough about how much I love it. It makes incredible froth like nobody’s business! (Watch the video below to see how it works!)
I call it Decaf Chai Latte — even though I’m pretty sure it’s not technically that. But calling it that makes me feel like it’s a little closer to coffee than it is, so just go with it, okay?!
It’s so simple to make and only takes 3 ingredients!
These are three teas that I currently really love: Decaf Hot Cinnamon, Stash Chai Spice, and Chai Rooibos. (I also like this one, but I’m out of it right now so I didn’t have a box to show in the picture!)
I like my tea strong, so I make it with two tea bags and only half a mug of hot water.
You can use half & half in place of the milk and it will be a lot thicker and creamier.
Decaf Chai Latte
- 2 chai tea bags (I love Decaf Hot Cinnamon, Stash Chai Spice, and Chai Rooibos.)
- 1/3 to 1/2 cup milk (or half & half, if you want yours to be creamier)
Steep 2 tea bags in a mug filled with 1/2 a cup of steaming hot water. While the tea is steeping, froth milk (you can use a handheld frother or a higher-quality frother).
Pour frothed milk over tea. Sprinkle cinnamon on top. Enjoy!
