Spicy Chai (WF, GF, DF)

When the weather is cold, it's time to warm ourselves up from the inside. This is one of our favourite drink recipes in the clinic. Chai is a spicy, aromatic and delicious drink that is perfect for this time of year!



  • 200mL cow / soy / rice / almond milk
  • 50mL water
  • 1 teaspoon tea leaves (can use a tea bag if you don't have loose leaf) (Black or Green tea)
  • 1 cinnamon stick or 1 pinch cinnamon powder
  • 1cm chopped fresh ginger or 1 pinch ginger powder
  • 1-2 cardamom pods, slightly crushed  or 1 pinch cardamom powder
  • 1 pinch pepper
  • 1-2 teaspoons honey or raw sugar


  1. Place all ingredients together (except the milk) in a saucepan and bring to the boil. When the chai spice mix comes to the boil add the milk & bring back to a rolling boil.  The mixture will froth up - when this happens, reduce the heat and allow to simmer for another 1-2 minutes.
  2. Strain into a large mug and sit down (preferably in a cushy chair, in a patch of sunshine) to sip contentedly.
