Frothy Chai Tea Collagen Latte Recipe

By Dr. Josh Axe

November 6, 2022

This chai tea recipe is a bit of a twist on a classic. We took out artificial sweeteners and flavors, in favor of the benefits thanks to this drink's antioxidants, real spices, Multi Collagen Protein and zero refined sugars.

It’s easy to make and extremely delicious. But it's got one of the best nutritional profiles you will ever see for a chai tea latte: 18 grams of carbs, 8 grams of fat and 8 grams of protein. It also includes the amazing ingredient Multi Collagen Protein for gut, skin and joint support.

So, go on, give this hot, creamy, fragrant beverage a try. (Also, give our turmeric latte, matcha latte and pumpkin spice latte a try, too!)

What Is Chai Tea?

Chai tea dates back over 5,000 years in India, where it was used as a healing spiced drink for use in Ayurveda. "Chai" actually means "tea," so you can simply call it chai but typically in the U.S. it's referred to as chai tea.

Often, in India, it's served as masala chai that's served a milk-based spicy tea. Masala refers to the combination of spices,

To add clarification, it’s actually masala chai that we know as the spicy tea with milk that feels so cozy. Masala, or spiced tea, references a combination of spices when talking about Indian cuisine. Typical spices include ginger root, green cardamom and cardamom seed, cinnamon, star anise, clover and peppercorn. The spices create warmth in the body and help the cleansing process.

The traditional way of preparing chai was simmering or boiling water and buffalo milk with loose black tea and spice, the latter which was wrapped in cloth in order to strain.

How to Make a Chia Tea Latte 

In our recipe, the ingredients are quite similar. But instead of buffalo milk, we go with coconut milk or almond milk. And for extra frothiness as well as benefits for the skin, joints and gut, we also add collagen powder that mixes easily.

First, boil enough water for two cups of tea. Put one tablespoon of black tea leaves (such as Darjeeling, Assam, Ceylon or English Breakfast) in a tea ball or tea cloth into a tea pot or vessel. Pour boiling water into the tea pot or vessel and let the tea brew for three to five minutes.

Meanwhile, in a small pot on the stovetop over medium heat, warm the coconut or almond milk. I recommend going with a light coconut milk, as otherwise the calories can be excessive. Add the warmed milk, the brewed tea, a pitted date and remaining ingredients, including all the spices and the Multi Collagen Protein, to a high-powered blender. Blend on high until well combined.

Pour into two tea cups. Add star anise or cinnamon sticks to complete the experience. Enjoy as many afternoons as you like!
