CHAI COCONUT DESSERT TEA
Recipe By Shirell Dalton, The Simple Chocolatier
Total Time: 8 minutes Yields a single serving
1 cup (8 ounces) hot water
1 tea bag (Tazo Chai Classic Tea)
1 tablespoon raw sugar (or natural sugar alternative such as coconut sugar or stevia, sweeten to taste)
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk (or other non-dairy alternatives such as almond coconut blend and coconut cream)
2 teaspoons coconut oil
Toppings: So Delicious CocoWhip Coconut Whipped Topping, ground cinnamon, dark chocolate (dairy-free) shavings or curls
Fill a microwavable glass or ceramic mug with 1 cup of water and place in the microwave for 2-3 minutes. Remove and add raw sugar and one Tazo Chai Classic tea bag to the hot water. Raw sugar has large, coarse granules. The hot water will cause the granules to dissolve so that your tea will not have a grainy taste. Allow the tea bag to steep for 5-6 minutes. While removing the tea bag, gently press the tea bag against the side of the mug to remove the excess tea from it. Stir the almond milk and coconut oil into the tea. Top the Chai Coconut Dessert Tea with coconut whipped topping then sprinkle with ground cinnamon. Also top with dark chocolate (dairy-free) shavings or curls.
Chai Dessert Tea with Kahlúa– For this version of the recipe, add 1 tablespoon of Kahlúa to the dessert tea before adding the toppings. Because of the sweetness of the Kahlúa, omit or reduce the amount of raw sugar.
