There’s nothing quite like a Starbucks Chai Latte… until you realize the Grande has 42g of sugar. Pre-prepared beverages can be a refined sugar trap, with the popular chai latte adding about 10 cubes of unnecessary sugar.
We have a secret – you can still indulge while enjoying all the same flavors in a much healthier way.
The basic ingredients used to form chai blends are very good for you. There’s blood-sugar controlling cinnamon, digestive-helping cardamom, antioxidant-rich ginger, and anti-inflammatory cloves. A mixture of spices with many more benefits than letters in their names.
When a cup of coffee just won’t do it or when you fancy a healthy after-dinner treat, this warming and comforting camel milk chai latte is just what you’re looking for.
