Keto Masala Chai

Stop saying Chai Tea Latte!!!

Today we’re making Keto Masala chai. Lots of Indians start their day with a cup of tea. This is a black tea boiled to eternity with lots of milk and sugar. Often there are spices added as well but it’s mostly milky and sweet. I personally do not like this tea. I prefer something brewed well with a dash on milk or creamer and just a hint of sweetness. This of course is not Keto. So for the many Indians who are looking for a Keto friendly version of their morning chai. Here is my recipe.

Also please can we stop saying chai tea latte? Chai literally means Tea. It’s like saying I’ll have a coffee cappuccino.

No Macros

I’m not posting any macros for this because you literally only need to count the amount of heavy cream you use. That’s all.

    This drink made my morning though I had to make it with powdered cardamom since I couldn’t find it whole. I used monkfruit sweetener and it was awesome.

      Yes definitely, you can also use almond milk or soya milk. Just that for a more ‘chai’ taste that ‘dairy’ is required but it can be done with any of the others too.

          yes thickened cream is perfect just make sure it’s one without any added sugar in the ingredients.

    So thrilled to find this recipe (and your other Indian keto recipes). I adore masala chai, and make it several times a week. I’m seriously addicted, which really amuses my Indian friends. (I live in Atlanta, Georgia, and we have a large Indian population.)

    I’m starting keto next week, and was dreading trying to work out an acceptable version of my beloved chai! Thank you for doing the work for me.

    Really going to miss potato samosas, but I’m hoping to be able to eat a meat samosa occasionally, if I’m very diligent about my carbs!
