I love me a good chai latte. Ive been drinking them for years and they have always been my go-to since I’m not super into coffee. If you’ve been following me for awhile over on my instagram you know that I have been on a major MAJOR matcha kick. This matcha kick means lots of caffeine and a break needed every now and then. The discovery of the power of adaptogenic mushrooms gave me the best idea - replace the caffeine with brain boosting mushroom powder. With no caffeine needed, and you’ll most definitely get that extra lil help you need come Monday morning.
Coconut milk powder keeps this recipe creamy without adding any milk and this entire mix can be made in batches and brought with you traveling (minus the coco butter). This way you can have a mushroom chia latte too where ever you are, just add water!
Thanks to my friends over at KOS naturals - you can get 15% off using the code “chefbai” at checkout for a majority of the ingredients in this recipe. I never work with brands I don’t truly stand behind, and KOS is one of those brands I will hopefully be able to access forever. They’re THAT good.
