Chai Tea Latte (AIP, Paleo, Dairy and Refined Sugar Free)

After using my turmeric recipe in my tea along with full fat coconut milk and cinnamon for a while, I found it to be quite gritty. A lot of people don’t like the taste, but when you have an issue with taking any kind of drugs for pain, you’ll resort to anything that will help.

I decided to try an AIP Chai Tea Latte that I found on the internet and used it for a while before landing on this recipe. The one on the internet includes cinnamon, but as I have a latex allergy, cinnamon is a no-no, so have decided to eliminate it and make my own version. I’ve been enjoying this tea twice a day.

  1. This sounds good I’ll have to try it. Can you answer me this, what does a latex allergy have to do with cinnamon? I have a latex allergy and I like cinnamon.

    1. Hi LouAnn: I love cinnamon as well and ate it forever. Now I’m very selective when I use it, if at all. Check out this link to get the whole story: http://latexallergyresources.org/cross-reactive-food. When you have autoimmune disease, there are many things you have to look at and I wasn’t aware that these foods were an issue until I looked it up one day and found out why I was still having flare-ups. Whether you “like” something or not doesn’t determine if you should be eating it unfortunately! Consequently, I’ve had to adjust the spices I use in my latte and other recipes to accommodate not using cinnamon – bummer I know!
      Best regards, Louise
