[Recipe] Caffeine-Free Chai Latte

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)

Directions:

  1. Cover the teabag and dates (if using) with 2 cups of boiling water and steep for a few minutes.
  2. Discard the tea bag & place tea, soaked dates, tahini & almond butter into a blender.
  3. Blend until creamy.

Tip:  You can try this with other nut or seed butters to see which flavor combination you like the best.  Cashew butter anyone?
