Can you even imagine giving up caffeine? Nope! Funny thing though, I didn’t start drinking coffee until I was 39. For the last five years though, I’ve had two very large cups of coffee a day. I also used to be an avid soda drinker, but now I might have 1 or 2 Cokes a month. I’ve been really sick this past year and have tried to understand what it means to be allergic to every tree on the planet. I primarily eat grain-free, low carb, high fat and moderate protein as a result of way too many allergy tests. Even with eating very clean, I was still getting very, very sick. I went to a gastroenterologist and he said basically that my intestines and stomach were pretty messed up and I had to make even more radical changes. One of those was the elimination of caffeine from my life. Hold on a minute, say what? I had a melt down right there in his office. I love the ritual of grinding the beans, making a delicious cup of coffee, and spending an hour in the morning reading and meditating while drinking it. I had to find something else to fill that void. I spent a week perfecting this recipe. This Keto Bulletproof Decaf Chai Tea Latte will change your life and is just as fabulous as your morning coffee!
When I first started drinking coffee it was as a Dirty Chai, which is a Chai Tea Latte with a shot of espresso. So good! Before I gave up coffee I would drink it with So Delicious Vanilla Coconut Creamer, which tasted so good! I used to use Almond Milk until I found out I was allergic to almonds… sigh. So that had to go!
I am on a medical-grade Keto diet which is pretty much Keto + Autoimmune Protocol Diet (AIP). I am allergic or highly sensitive to 92 foods! So when I find a combination of items I can eat that taste amazing, I jump for joy and tell the world. That’s why I’m sharing this recipe with you. I know what it’s like to have foods taken away and how hard it is to find delicious replacements for your favorites.
Over the course of a few months, I perfected my own version of Bulletproof Coffee, but without the caffeine. I created this recipe for a delicious Keto Bulletproof Decaf Chai Tea. I’m happy to say that it turned out pretty darn great!
- 4 tea bags of Celestial Seasonings Decaf India Spice or Stash Herbal Tea Caffeine Free Spice Dragon Red Chai
- 1 Tbsp Heavy Whipping Cream or Coconut Milk
- 1 Tbsp MCT Oil
- 1 Tbsp Kerrygold Butter
- 1 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
- 1 Tbsp Collagen Peptides
I use my coffee maker to brew my tea for the morning and set the timer at night so it is ready for me when I wake up. I found that six cups of water set on Strong Brew with four tea bags makes the perfect chai tea. Use a large coffee cup that is deep as it helps when you blend this together.
Note: The coffee cup shown holds 2 cups of coffee. Also, this first part creates a chai tea concentrate. If you don’t use it all, simply store it in a mason jar in the fridge. Then you can use it for an iced chai tea in the afternoon or use it later in the week for your morning cup of tea.
**My coffee maker gave up on me a few weeks ago. Instead of replacing it, I have been using my coffee press. I boil the water on the stove and then pour it over 4 teabags in the coffee press. I let it sit about 4 minutes before using the chai tea concentrate in this recipe.
Add in the softened Kerrygold Butter, Collagen Peptides, Creamer, MCT Oil, and Pumpkin Pie Spice. Then slowly add in the hot tea, let it sit for about a minute to melt the butter.
Use your milk frother for 15-20 seconds to blend it all together. Be careful as it could go over the edges if you filled it too full with the tea.
Now you are ready to enjoy this delicious Keto Bulletproof Decaf Chai Tea Latte! If you want it sweeter, add in a teaspoon of coconut butter, a cocoa butter wafer, or vanilla… it makes it very creamy too! If you don’t need it decaf, try it with regular Chai Tea bags instead.
