Creamy Chai Latte

Last updated:


Every once in a while I feel the need to re-balance my body (most particularly after a rich food blow-out!), and start by making up a pot of this delicious, yet healthy Creamy Chai Latte (it’s also wonderful during the winter months to warm you up).

It’s rich in healing spices – the ones I’ve included are turmeric (an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant), ginger (an antioxidant, great for intestinal issues), cinnamon (an antioxidant; also anti-clotting, anti-microbial and blood sugar stabilizer), cayenne pepper (anti-bacterial, digestive aid, promotes heart health), and star anise (anti-fungal, antioxidant, anti-bacterial). The recipe is inspired by Dr Sanjay Gupta’s Creamy Turmeric Tea (found on, however it’s very amenable to adapting, which I’ve done, adding a few extra components. Feel free to adapt for your own needs and tastes.
