Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve shared with you a few blogs that discuss why you may want to consider avoiding coffee or why drinking caffeine in the afternoon may be adversely affecting you and your sleep.
I know that an afternoon boost is NECESSARY for many of us busy moms. And it’s easy to be drawn to a sugary espresso drink for a quick boost. So, today I’m going to offer you a delicious alternative option. This recipe is caffeine free and tastes super indulgent.
Give this puppy a try next time you’re craving an afternoon latte.
Recipe (Caffeine-free latte for your afternoon “coffee break”): Caffeine-Free Chai Latte
- 1 bag of rooibos chai tea (rooibos is naturally caffeine-free)
- 2 cups of boiling water
- 1 tablespoon tahini
- 1 tablespoon almond butter (creamy is preferred)
- 2 dates (optional)
- Cover the teabag and dates (if using) with 2 cups of boiling water and steep for a few minutes.
- Discard the tea bag & place tea, soaked dates, tahini & almond butter into a blender.
- Blend until creamy.
- Serve and Enjoy!
Tip: You can try this with other nut or seed butters to see which flavor combination you like the best. Cashew butter anyone?
