Chai Tea with Raw Chocolate
Recipe Type: Drink
Serves: 2 servings
Almost like drinking a spicy chocolate gingerbread, this chocolate chia is a comfy feel-good drink. Give this relaxing gem a try.
  • 2 cups strong chai tea (use a classic flavour variety)
  • 1 cup hazelnut milk (or use any other plant-milk of choice)
  • 2 TBSP raw cacao powder
  • 1 TBSP maple syrup, or to taste
  • 2 TBSP coconut milk (optional, for a richer chocolate)
  1. Let the chai tea steep in a mug with 2 cups of water for about 10 minutes – it should be really strong so you might want to use 2 bags.
  2. Pour the chai tea, the plant-milk and the coconut milk in a pot and gently whisk in the cacao powder. Add maple syrup to taste – start with 1 TBSP and see if it’s sweet enough for you (this will depend greatly on the kind of plant-milk you’re using, some have a natural higher sugar content than others and maybe you’re also using an already sweetened variety).
  3. Gently heat it up until it’s warm but no too hot. This will preserve the raw cacao’s nutrients.
  4. Pour in a big mug and let the smells and taste of christmas mingle with chocolate!
