Chai Tea Latte

We are bringing you all the fall flavors we can possibly muster this month! One thing we both can never seem to give up is our daily coffee runs. We don’t have a problem spending $5 a day on a coffee, but we do have a problem with what goes into that cup. Did you know that a Starbucks Venti Chai Tea Latte has 53 grams of sugar?! Keep in mind that this is more than double the daily recommended sugar intake for a woman in a single (yet delicious) beverage.

We did not want to give up this drink since it is truly the perfect cozy blend of sweet and spicy, so we created our own recipe! It does not hurt to save that $5+ a day either, while keeping our sugar intake down. Actually, our recipe has less than .5 grams of sugar in the entire cup!
