How to Make a Soy Maca Cacao Chai (a Healthy Alternative to Sweet Chai Tea)!

This recipe has evolved over time as have my tastes and needs. I think you will love this healthy alternative to the popular sweet chai teas commonly available. In this recipe, you can either use the dry spices or essential oils (1-2 drops). If you do use essential oils make sure you use a trusted brand safe for consumption. This makes 2 cups of tea.

You’ll need:

  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 – 2 tea bags
  • 1 cup non-GMO organic soy milk
  • 1 – 2 teaspoons maca powder
  • 1 tablespoon cacao powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • cinnamon, cardamom, clove, cassia, black pepper, nutmeg (all to taste)

Here’s how you make it:

  1. Pour the boiling water over the tea bags. Steep for 4 minutes. Remove tea bags.
  2. Add the soy milk. Heat in a saucepan or in the microwave to desired temperature.
  3. Stir in the maca powder, cacao, vanilla and spices, to taste. Stir well.
