The perfect breakfast beverage, Paleo Chai Latte, made with warming Ayurvedic spices will keep you cozy during the cold weather. Made with eggs, coconut oil, and antioxidant rich chai spices including cinnamon, cardamom, and cloves, this rich hot drink makes a great on-the-go breakfast. Sometimes I serve Paleo Chai Latte as a healthy snack in the afternoon, since it gives me a burst of real energy without any of the caffeine.
Speaking of caffeine, while many people on the paleo diet start their days off with bulletproof coffee, I do not. I haven’t had coffee since 1993. I think I had a headache for three days straight when I gave up coffee cold turkey a couple of decades ago. My body simply doesn’t tolerate caffeine. The silver lining of giving up coffee is my homemade Dandelion Root Coffee, my favorite coffee substitute beverage. In the winter I drink it almost every day, and a couple of times per week in the summer.
Fans rave about my Dandelion Root Coffee. Like regular coffee, its primary flavor is bitter, a flavor that is highly underrated in our culture and very important in Ayurveda and Chinese Medicine. Finally, my homemade Dandelion Root Coffee is a great liver cleanser. For me, giving up caffeine and getting healthy liver cleansing dandelion root into my body every day is a win-win!
This Paleo Chai Latte is another great hot drink that’s similar to chai tea, or a chai latte! It’s packed with protein from eggs, and full of fabulous fat from coconut oil. If you are raw egg-phobic, the great thing about this paleo drink is that the boiling water poaches the eggs a bit. If you’re looking for a quick and easy, healthy breakfast recipe this is it!
- In a vitamix, combine eggs, water, coconut oil, cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, and date
- Blend on high until mixture is frothy
Another benefit of this paleo breakfast drink? No pan to wash after breakfast. Just rinse out the container of your blender or throw it in the dishwasher, and you’re set! Feel free to customize Paleo Chai Latte to your liking with more eggs or coconut oil. You can also increase the spices. Today when I made it I threw in some nutmeg, and it was delicious! Paleo Chai Latte is my new favorite healthy breakfast recipe.
